Art, expression, and communication is critical to social change.
As a person of privilege in social justice, I find purpose in building bridges between different communities, and I have passion in doing that through storytelling and visual design.
I believe in the power of how something makes you feel - from an annual report for stakeholders to a project budget for staff - the way something looks affects your understanding.
I can work with you on small projects, or lead larger teams. I'm a skilled listener and translator between staff and designers - helping them through a collaborative process to understand each other to achieve the best result.
I lean on my own technical experience, personal aesthetic, writing skills, and strategic thinking to bring ideas to life and create something that helps everyone be seen and heard.
Let's tell stories together.
All my communications projects have been achieved through collaborations with different people from data analysts to illustrators, from communications firms to individual artists.
GRAPHIC & WEB DESIGN
I'm a self-taught graphic and web designer that understands the mission, pace, and work of foundations, nonprofits and activists.
"Devi is a strategic thinker and I really admire her ability to always be able to look at the big picture when working on projects, especially those that have a strong design and content element. She understands the varied nature of the audience she is communicating with well and that serves as an added advantage, when executing a campaign or an initiative. She is always prepared with a Plan B and that tells a lot about her long-term thinking capabilities.
She is patient, full of ideas and creative energy--you can always count her for thinking outside the box. It's a pleasure to watch her work and imbibe her work ethics."

Below is a sample of my work and brief description of my role in each project.
*I have a knack for naming things - I contributed the name for almost all of the works featured.
I collaborated with a small group of facilitators to create a version of our world in 2035 for the Money and Movements Conference - contributing costume, make up, lighting, sound, and video.
