Hi, Iโ€™m Dani โ€” an independent Creative / Art / Design director kickinโ€™ it in Brooklyn. I work with in-house brand teams and clients on design strategy, brand systems, brand marketing, campaigns, and copy.

I've been a part of great teams like the Oscar Health brand team, Stink Studios NY, the Intercom Brand Studio, and Vox Media. Freelance clients include Webflow, Our Place, Impossible Foods, and more.

I have a BFA in graphic design from RISD, I recently wrote a kids' book, and I highly respect good people and bad puns.

Inside Intercom needed an update in order to grow at the same rate as itโ€™s audience. I worked with the Content team to turn the blog into a publication, with a design that allows for a customizable content structure (not just chronological posts), individual sections for each audience segment, articles with/without illustration, and a defined personality within the Intercom brand. I'm also responsible for commissioning and art directing amazing illustrators and photographers to bring the author's words to life. Read more here.
