Hi, I'm mariel

I'm a Portland-based designer creating authentic & meaningful brands that help businesses thrive.

my story

Originally from Boston, I earned my BFA in Graphic Design from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. I am currently based in Portland, OR and have been working independently since 2016. I am especially passionate about working with brands in the hospitality, wellness, and retail industries.

I believe quality design is rooted in empathy and thoughtfulness. I always aim to get to know my clients and truly understand their pain points so that I can provide them with a solution that is tailored to their needs. My work balances a clean and simple style with touches of hand-drawn typography, texture, and playful illustration. When I'm not designing, you can find me on an outdoor photography adventure, playing beach volleyball, or testing out a new recipe in the kitchen.
