About Me

Hi! My name is Maria! I am a designer in Grand Rapids, Michigan. My personal branding is based off my belief that design is about more than making something look pretty. Design is about solving problems. Faced with a new project, I begin with design research and understanding, with a human-centered approach. Adding my own perspective to a problem allows me to solve it in my own unique way.
