Hi, I'm Lizzie and I like to design stuff.

I attended Western Michigan University and Oakland University for Graphic Design and Journalism but ultimately completed my education at Arizona State University with a bachelors in Graphic Information Technology. Along with that, I hold a minor in Journalism and took second focus areas in Marketing and Entrepreneurship Management.

As a graphic designer, I specialize in brand identity design including logos, color palettes, typography, and stationery.
However, I have extensive experience in album and cover artwork, layout design, and web design.

I'm inspired by magic, fantasies, darkness, perspectives, and all the pretty things the world has to offer.
I favor trendy, bold, feminine, or modern designs but I like to think I can be versatile.
Overall, I aspire to keep art & design alluring and captivating.

On a more personal note, I spend most of my time obsessing over design, typography, fiction, words, and punctuation. Outside of that, I love dance and hula hooping, comic books, true crime documentaries, interior design, shopping, naps, and coffee. But most importantly, my cats Fireball and Kid.
