Hi, I'm Ali — a creative design professional based in Portland, OR. I specialize in print media and editorial layout, and my experience also encompasses digital media including web advertisements and e-newsletters, as well as writing and editing. With a wide-ranging background working in publishing, printing, and at a nonprofit arts organization, I’ve produced creative work to promote everything from gallery exhibitions to fundraising galas. I have been an art director for the Westchester County Business Journal, WAG Magazine, and currently for Oregon Home Magazine, the state's leading shelter publication. What I enjoy most about graphic design is visual problem-solving: combining images, typography, and copy in just the right way to make a printed or digital piece instantly engaging — it’s a puzzle I love to figure out!
