What do you do at Champions Design?

My interests in design, storytelling, and popular culture led me to want to build legacies for brands that deserve them. At Champions, we do it all. I participate in visual research, create design concepts, build identity systems across platforms, collaborate with clients, and work with strategists. 

What got you into this field of work?

I was introduced to design by the means of the web in the early 2000s, when users could use HTML and CSS to design on social media platforms. A form of storytelling I didn’t understand at that time, but was reintroduced to during my undergraduate studies at Virginia Commonwealth University. 

What would you do if you could no longer do this work? 

I would be working in news as a reporter or documentarian, to continue my interest in storytelling.
