I grew up and received my primary education in theatre. I’ve been deeply immersed in the arts my entire life and love working with other actors and creatives. Over the last couple of years I decided to explore additional creative fields to find that I have a serious knack for graphic design. So much so that I ended up enrolling at Parsons The New School. Quickly thereafter I decided to start a side gig in graphic design and branding for small business. This all eventually lead me to the question, “how can I combine these two loves?”
The answer quickly became “branding.” For years I’ve been having conversations with colleagues about how to stand out in the competitive environment of New York City. Since I’ve been working in the two fields simultaneously I’ve stumbled on a way to use my skills in visual design to enhance the work of my friends/colleagues in their respective fields no matter where they live.
Thus Brand By Bond was born. My eye for design, my instinct for people and experience in branding make for a unique mix. My goal is to find the best in the people I work with and create a way to make their stars shine a little brighter.
