I’m a creative thinker + freelance graphic designer. Atlanta is my home—and my favorite city. I love working with museums, local businesses, public spaces, and cities to design creative solutions and tell meaningful stories.
Owner, Designer, Explainer-in-Chief
Welcome! You can call me Mad (think wacky-mad, not angry-mad).
I discovered my design destiny in a basement classroom in high school—and never looked back. I earned my BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Georgia. My professors initiated me into the cult of typography and encouraged to save the world with a poster.
There, I also learned about having fun with the people you work with: they’ll give you the greatest insight when you least expect it.
Even several years into my professional career, I’m optimistic about the power of design. As a freelance graphic designer in Atlanta, I strive to build a beloved community. My clients come from many different fields—local businesses and agencies, private commissions, social and civic organizations—but they all have big hearts and a passion for their communities, just like me.
I’m proud to call Atlanta home.
I’ve been a local since kindergarten; my mom grew up here during the formative 1960s. When I moved intown after college, I couldn’t keep track of all the neighborhoods people mentioned. So I began to design my own map, which eventually became my Atlanta Neighborhoods series.
First, I spent countless hours researching Atlanta’s 240+ neighborhoods. My understanding of the city grew deeper. Next, I worked my hard-nosed typography skills to make my map pleasing to read. To get the screen prints produced to my standards, I relied on my communication skills and my tenacity. Finally, it was my enthusiasm and genuine love for the city that helped me sell all 100 of my first-edition Atlanta Neighborhoods screen prints.
If I did this on my own, imagine what we could create together!
