Design, Typography, 
& Everything In Between

I'm Mercedes, a graphic designer, illustrator, typographer, and printmaker based in Denver, Colorado. 

I've spent the past few years working as a lead designer and project manager at two separate print shops. In that time, I've designed eye-catching work for everything from family reunions to world-wide tours for the one of the biggest bands of the year. It's exciting work, and I'm proud to have done so much in the field, but I'm looking to get back into a traditional design field, working with publication design and print media. I also keep busy doing freelance design, sketching, and owning a handmade lingerie line.

Born in the Midwest, I grew up in the middle of cornfields before studying design at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and finishing my degree at the University of Iowa. I have a BFA in Graphic Design with minors in Printmaking and Ceramics.
