I view design as an evolving process in which the client and the designer collaborate to find the best solution for the problem at hand. Just as nature has gone through evolution over billions of years, design should follow the rules set forth by this process.
A principle that I always work with in mind:
Good design = evolving design
With that being said, let’s jump into a high level view of my design process.
The first step is to get all the data “on the table,” same as you would with any engineering, business, or other type of problem before trying to create a solution. This is done through asking the client questions, getting to know their customers, gathering market data, researching competitors, or whatever the problem calls for.
After gathering all of the data, we can sort through it and run through the following items:
Your brand is the foundation of all content for your business. Now that we have all of the data sorted, we can start to align your brand and prep for the “Build” stage of the process.
Now that we have everything in place, we can start designing the solution.
Just as I mentioned before, good design = evolving design. This means that there will be a few iterations in order to get to build a solution for the problem.
Once we’ve developed a fitting solution to the problem, its time to publish and share all assets that were created during the design process.

Quick snaps of things, of life, of moments. Some day-to-day photos. No filters. No edits. I've recently been obsessed with the balance of negative space, positive space, and how both the natural and man-made world can strike a balance between the two. These were all quick snaps with my phone of scenes and moments that I found interesting in the world...
Just like anything, good design becomes possible for anyone to achieve once they understand a few fundamentals. In this post, I’m going to walk you through the fundamentals that I use to design pitch decks. This post will only focus on the design aspect of decks, not what to include, how to pitch, etc. There are already many great resources out there to learn those skills. I think simplicity is best so I’ve narrowed things down into 4 main principles which each contain a few sub-points within them. With that being said, let's start with...
