hi! I'm robyn.

I love problem solving with creative, innovative solutions.

I have a depth of expertise in the publishing sector, with a focus on story-telling and hierarchy to improve communication and user experiences across other mediums and spaces.

After working primarily as a visual designer and art director, I became fascinated with processes used by researchers to inform creative and structural decisions, and took the plunge into product design.

I'm most excited by the intersection of design and technology, and in my free time enjoy woodworking, ceramics, urban gardening, and making floor plans of my friend's apartments.

Robyn Portrait

"For almost three years, Robyn was a contributing art director and product designer for Business of Home, totally rethinking and redesigning every aspect of our brand: website and digital newsletters, print magazine, marketing materials, social graphics, and all of the branding and applications for our inaugural Future of Home conference. She came up with brilliant strategies to achieve goals, mapped out intricate and detailed workflows, and made our products look amazing—and function beautifully. A few times I went to her with a rough idea for an initiative and she ran with it, figuring out the details with little need for guidance. She is constantly improving her skills, keeping tabs on innovations, and making sure her clients are up to speed. She worked well with our team of editors, marketers, and developers to make things happen, and always delivered a superior product. Robyn is an incredible talent, a strong leader, and welcomes a challenge. She belongs at the top of a great company!"
