Based in San Diego, California, I build websites and create marketing collateral for government, non-profits, and small businesses. I have 18 years of experience elevating brand awareness in both digital and print spaces.
I got my start at the Postal Service. I didn’t carry mail or design stamps, but I honed my design skills as a graphic designer in the branding department of the U.S. Postal Service headquartered in Washington, D.C.
An opportunity came my way. I moved home to San Diego to launch and operate Like New, a brick-and-mortar consignment shop, where I learned the ins and outs of business operation, advertising and marketing. After a few years, I transitioned Like New into an e-commerce business.
In addition to designing for others, I dive into personal projects. I illustrated The Cranz, a cast of crayon characters from Cran Diego, Cranifornia and pursued writing a children’s novel. This is where my studio Cran Love Creative has its roots. You can read more about my journey creating The Cranz at cranlove.com.
Today, I am busy with web development, branding, and graphic design at Cran Love Creative.
