My face Newgrange-9

That's me in Newgrange, Ireland, an ancient site older than the pyramids!

ABOUT

Hi, I’m Barbara, a graphic designer based in Otttawa, Canada working with local businesses, cultural organizations and enterprises on branding, web design, layouts and print materials. 

I ground my work in research, which allows me to go beyond the surface and bring out the meaning of each project. I do this by working closely with clients, looking into their business goals and ideas, and digging deep into their topic.

I came into design by way of history, journalism, human rights, and photography. These past experiences have contributed to a deep sense of empathy which informs my design process and work.

I am a graduate of the University of Toronto, George Brown College, and of the User Experience Design program at HackerYou.
 
In my spare time, I love exploring different art mediums such as drawing, illustration, painting, photographic manipulation and letter design. I value curiosity, sustainability and community, and am passionate about history, the world of movie-making, and seeing how other people live around the world.
