How long have you been at HZ?
I've been at HZ just over a year!
How would you describe your design style?
Clean with an emphasis on typography. I love photography, so when possible I like to take photos and incorporate them into my work.
Is there a design trend you really love (or hate)?
There’s been a trend towards more minimalistic work that plays off negative space that I like. Though the idea might be old, I think some of the best logos out there use gestalt principles. The simplicity of it goes a long way and I would love to play around with it more.
Are there any brands you would consider a dream client?
A restaurant—it would be a lot of fun to work the branding of one. Lately I’ve begun to notice how the menu, website, decor, furniture, etc., all contribute to the ambiance and feel of a restaurant. It would be cool to help create that. (And try samples, of course!)
What other designers inspire you?
No one in particular off the top of my head, but I could spend hours scrolling through designspiration.net!
What inspired your wallpaper?
Maps and my love for traveling. There is something really beautiful about maps in the way their content is fixed, but that they can still be aesthetically organic.
Who would you like to nominate for our next featured designer?
Rachel, also from HZ Baltimore!
