Hi, I'm Hope and I'm a serial entrepreneur.

Over the years, I have started several businesses on my journey to YOU. My entrepreneurial story began almost 15 years ago, when I designed and manufactured faux fur chalk bags for rock climbers. My chalk bags were carried by REI and sold in climbing gyms around the country. 

In 2004, I co-founded the country’s first sewing lounge and demystified sewing for a new generation of DIY seamsters. We wrote two books about refashioning clothing.


(If you’re the type to keep track, that’s a product, brick-and-mortar retail, and now, a service. I’ve experienced it all.)

All of that experience brought me here, to my true calling as a designer and visual strategist, one who understands the entrepreneurial journey and embodies the spirit of creation.

These days, it isn’t enough to have a great idea. The brands that stand out in our modern world are the ones who lead with their “why?” and make all decisions using this compass. 

That’s where I start—with a deep understanding of your mission and the difference your organization is trying to make in this world. Then I synthesize your values, research in current industry trends, and over a decade of design experience into a visual strategy that is meaningful, extraordinary, and most importantly, one that is tailor-made for your business.  


If you take a look at my body of work, I think you’ll see that I have more than one look in my design toolkit. Rather, I carefully craft your visual strategy to align with your organization’s values and mission. Elegant. Playful. Bold. Your business is not a one-size-fits-all venture and your visual identity shouldn’t be either.


If you've been looking for a partner to help pave the road for your (ad)venture, let's chat. I want to hear more of your story.
