Their clients include many of the largest, most iconic brands in the world: Microsoft, Nike, General Electric, Coca-Cola, Ford, Visa and many more. 

I joined XPLANE in 2013. Currently, I work as an art director and designer. As a fast, detail orientated designer I’ve helped execute and problem solve how content works and lives through hundreds of materials. My macro perspective and solution-driven thinking has helped XPLANE execute more consistent, thoughtful work faster. Over the years, I’ve helped strengthen XPLANE’s brand identity through unifying their appearance and personality across all projects and online.
