ROLE: LEAD DESIGNER
STUDIO: REVOLUTION MESSAGING
From 2014 to 2018 I worked with a variety of clients through Revolution Messaging, but my primary client was women's rights nonprofit UltraViolet.
Design in the political sphere is a unique challenge because for campaigns and advocacy groups, time is short and budgets are tight, and design simply isn't a priority. This work takes a lot of agility, a lot of improvisation, and a lot of advocating for design as a vital component of any digital strategy. I've become a certified expert at making cheap fonts look expensive, finding free, legal photography, and making last minute edits on the bus ride home (and the whole evening, and the bus ride into the office the next morning). What's even harder is figuring out how to still be an effective designer given these incredibly tight restrictions, something I struggled with at first, but quickly came to see as an exciting challenge.
