My name is

HANNAH

AND I BRING DESIGNS TO LIFE

About

I strive to bring any idea to life, big or small.

I am a Pittsburgh based graphic designer who believes life experiences, people and adventures help encourage creativity. I use my own experiences to create great designs. Through my work, I aim to present a clear and organized message while incorporating bits of inspiration that I encounter on a daily basis. I have a good sense of detail and pride myself on the ability to take projects from the concept development stage all the way through to final production. I describe myself as an artist that doesn't follow grids, but an artist who sets them.

I also enjoy very large cups of coffee and googling cat pictures...
but doesn't everyone?

What I Do

  • Print Design

    Whether it's business cards, brochures, flyers, direct mailers or digital media; don't worry, I got you.
  • Branding

    With over ten years of experience, I can help create an original, memberable brand for your company.
  • Web design

    Not only can I create pixel perfect designs, I can develop responsive websites for all devices.
