Building a brand is more than creating a name or designing a logo. It's about building an identity that delivers a consistent, comprehensive, and effective message that people can trust.  Whether you are an established business looking to update your image or are a start-up looking to build your new brand, I work closely with you to refine your identity and help shape your future promotional strategy.

A Little Bit About Me...

I am a Shell Beach, California based designer who, at an early age, found myself playing with paint, chalk, and anything colorful.  Today, I  apply the same love of color and design by pouring myself in to my firm, Savant Design Studio. With dedication, a strong work ethic, and raw talent, I have managed to impress  clients with exceptional customer service and a natural 'eye' for design.


In 2001, I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications.  Upon graduation,  my now husband Scott, and I  packed up and headed West.  After three short years in Arizona, we found ourselves at the beach on California's beautiful Central Coast. As a self-proclaimed foodie and lover of all things wine, living in 'wine country' was a dream come true.

Working as  Director of Marketing Communications for Aviation Consultants, Inc. (ACI) since 2004, I have been responsible for developing and executing internal and external marketing communications. Designing,  implementing, and evaluating  online + offline strategies through advertising, promotions, public relations, and graphics, I am proud to say I have helped escalate the ACI brand in national and international markets.


When I'm not busy designing, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two dogs, cooking, running, and taking our single-engine airplane on culinary and wine-themed adventures. Follow me on Twitter, to see where we are headed next!

How I Can Help You...

Now blending my passion for wine with my passion for design, my goal is to help boutique  wineries set themselves apart by developing creative + distinctive design solutions through custom label design, printed marketing collateral, and digital publication applications.
