Hey there, I’m Brandi!

I’m a designer and front-end developer living in Washington DC, ever-excited about all things web. I’ve been in the business for more than ten years now, and I honestly never tire of the magic that is the Internet.

I feel that I’m a rare breed in some ways in that I not only design websites (and other materials like logos, biz cards and posters), but I also code the front-end of the sites I mock up. I’ve loved getting my hands dirty in CSS and HTML ever since college and am always eager to learn more, but my skill-set took a major leap forward after I learned how to responsively theme content management systems like WordPress and Drupal. Current obsessions include sucking up Sass tricks like a vacuum cleaner and hearting responsive design and living style guides/pattern libraries.

I love visuals and code and find myself getting lost in sites like Smashing Magazine, Viget: Inspire, Treehouse Blog and so many others. Type is a passion, and I am always adding to my font collection and looking for new inspiration (can’t beat a gorgeous standby like Gotham or Helvetica Neue, though). I also adore minimalist gig posters.

As far as the rest of my activities are concerned, I enjoy music (Fleet Foxes, Esperanza Spalding, Tennis, Chvrches, Eisley, Interpol, David Bowie, and on and on), cooking, interior design, and old 70s horror movies. Plus, I like sloths and have a weirdly soft spot for all things MailChimp.
