Hi, I'm Paige.

I am an Art Director, Graphic Designer & Illustrator based in Washington, D.C. 
Children often make up stories, or codes, or secret languages and handshakes. Coding and decoding symbols is how we process visual information. Language is arbitrary by nature, and relies on context and shared understanding to function. My approach to design leverages our common desire to make  connections. 
I have a background in communications, which informs my strategic work and design thinking. I have in-house and agency graphic design experience, where I built trust with audiences visually, and shaped narratives through my design practice. 
My work is digitally based, but has real-world applications. The endless possibilities of design programs allow me to build a narrative piece by piece.
Individual context is everything. A shape can take on a life of its own if we give it the space to do so. It is my goal to give the viewer the tools to interpret those relationships as a story, and to guide them to understanding a new design language. 
Let's build something together!
