Chief of Inspiration

hi, i’m dana.

I love to create things.

I am passionate about anything that’s well designed, from digital and print to fashion and furniture. I am fascinated by how design can tell a story, impact emotion, or motivate an action. I love the beauty of details.

Though I’m originally from the Bay Area, I’m a Colorado girl at heart. I’ve climbed 26 out of the 52 Colorado 14ers (mountains over 14,000 feet), and like to spend time with my family skiing in the winter and on inflatable boats in the summer. My latest love? Paddle-boarding. And during the week when I’m not designing, you can find me sweating it out on the dance floor.

I’m a lover of details but don’t sweat the small stuff. I like simplicity. I adore wearing heels—even in Boulder. I have a fondness for cats and find them endlessly entertaining. And I have just added two puppies to the mix!

It has been a real pleasure working with you, Dana.
You have done so much great work for us and are a joy to know.
