Hi.

I'm Danelle, a freelance graphic designer in Anoka, Minnesota.

What I do

User Experience

Making what you do accessible for users is my passion, whether in the form of a brochure, business card, or website. User experience encompasses both usability and visual (or tactile, as the case may be) experience with your product and everything that I do keeps your users in mind.

Architecture

In the digital world, solid information architecture is the blueprint to better user experience. I focus organizing your content in the best way so users spend less time searching for information and more time acting.

User experience is just as important in print as it is in the digital world. I help organize your printed information in a way that makes sense and is easy to navigate.

Wordpress

User experience extends into what you do to maintain your site, and WordPress is an easy-to-use content management system and my CMS of choice. I can help you create a custom site, find the best way to implement your content and provide what support is needed for maintaining your site.

About Me

I do freelance graphic design work, more specifically with user experience, information architecture, and bridging the gap between you and your audience. Print and web are both familiar territory and I graduated with a graphic design degree from the University of Northwestern - St. Paul. Technical skills include WordPress, HTML, CSS, layout, relief printing, and bookbinding. My non-design passions include music, bird-watching, coffee-consuming and the general outdoors.
