Hi, I'm Dani - a designer kickin' it in Brooklyn by way of San Francisco and Baltimore. Currently, I'm a Design Director at Stink Studios and taking on select side projects. Previously, I've worked at the Intercom Brand Studio, Vox Media, and Established. I graduated from the graphic design dept. at RISD, I recently opened a *shop*, and I highly respect good people and bad puns.

Visionary is a typeface designed for the American Visionary Art Museum located in Baltimore, Maryland. AVAM collects works by artists with an innate creative vision and no formal artistic training, which gives the museum a vibrant, alive, and eclectic atmosphere. I channeled AVAM’s vibe into a typeface by using jaunty gesticulated forms, a chunky weight, and slanted edges that make the letters feel in conversation with each other — much like the work in the museum.
