I had such a fun time subbing for Foundation Design Studio back in February at Emily Carr while Alex was away for an artist residency for two weeks. Hands on learning and material explorations are one of my happy places 🙂
Learning how to work with different teams and people is one of my favourite aspects of design and collaboration. Asking honest questions, active listening and experimentation all play significant roles through my work and allow me to find common ground necessary to helping clients achieve their goals. Clear communication. Trust. Feedback loops. Process is incredibly important to me. Time is valuable; I use it wisely and transparently. Ultimately, my role as a communication designer is to translate your vision into visual form that connects on rational and emotional levels. I believe I work well with people because I tend not to get too attached to ideas, but rather focus on being flexible and that satisfaction of knowing my clients / collaborators feel heard defines success for me.
