About Dara

headshot

Though her chief ambition is to live a life of adventure and wanderlust, Dara passes the time between travels by cultivating her craft to create rich experiences. She studies design, typography, illustration and how to communicate effectively.

As a Nebraska native, Dara obtained a degree in Information Technology. That was before realizing that communicating through digital and print was so much fun! Now she uses her skills as a trained analyst to determine a clients needs and design something accessible and unique.

She’s a certified geek who ranks board games, geocaching, puzzles, and reading fictitious crime novels a bit too high on her list of fun things to do. She considers camping, hiking, biking and stand up paddle boarding enjoyable too.

Contact her today to make something together.  Or check out her blog pages to hear more about the designs below.
