Working With People Who Are Making The World A Better Place

Education/environment/SMBs/socially responsible enterprises

My passion is working with and providing effective design for you.


Knowledge is the most important thing shared with others, creating sustainable, diverse communities of learning are what you strive for. I work to uphold your brand spirit and keep your brand voice clear and inclusive to attract and retain students for generations to come.


Making the world a better, resilient place is a huge mission for environmental nonprofits, as it is for the for-profits. I’ll keep your branding + messaging clear and consistent to work towards achieving your objectives, grow awareness for your cause (or business), and win the hearts and minds of advocates.

Small-Midsize Businesses

Your mission is one of social responsibility, putting purpose before profits, keeping operations in tune with the environment. I can turn your story into one that resonates + connects with your market and stakeholders, builds awareness and affinity for your brand, all the seeds that help grow your business.

Supporting Dreams

Grand Ciel Design allocates time and talent annually to The Mars Generation, a Minneapolis based nonprofit with a global reach that supports and encourages young women and girls to “Dream Big, Act Big, and Inspire Others” in their pursuit of STEAM and space exploration careers.

But At the End of the Day...

You want someone who actively listens to what you need and can offer effective solutions. You want someone who wants to dive into understanding your subject matter. You want someone who will be there consistently during and even after a project has been completed.
You just want things to work better without breaking budgets. Having someone who is fun to work with would be nice, too. I get it.


I also love collaborating with like-minded marketing strategists and project managers…

Who wants to work with a designer who does WAY MORE than making pixels look pretty. That would be me.
