HELLO

BIOGRAPHY

Dana is a Designer & Marketing Creative and VERKHOUSE is her portfolio. Her areas of expertise are multimedia, web design and brand strategy.

 

Dana’s been freelancing from her home studio since 2019 and she’s been in this industry for about sixteen years. She produced award-winning design & art direction for various clients including SMBs and multinational corporations, being able to collaborate and communicate with technology and business partners to deliver visually beautiful and functional data-driven design products.

She studied design in high school and got a BA degree in Visual Communications and Graphic Design. After that, she immersed herself into furthering her education at British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) in Vancouver and via the internet  ̶ which lead to discovering her own voice. She built her career in design and web media from the ground up; succeeding while surrounded by a family of talented artists and architects.

Growing up, she was raised in a very artistic household and surrounded by creatives. Dana was unaware of her potential and didn’t believe she was on the design and marketing track because she always wanted to become an architect. She loves exploring life, always learning and growing, and she’s always curious.

She was fortunate enough to have had many teachers and mentors who helped her shape into the designer she is today. Dana believes that having honest love and care during times of difficult or success is an important key of life.

Her Vision

Dana’s vision is helping business leaders ship innovative and meaningful digital products in which they can feel proud of. From helping transform the image of a legacy brand to creating an ultra-modern identity for a space tech startup, she’s always up for a fresh challenge.

Dana’s work has been published in Computer Arts, Architizer, Frame, Interiors, Contract NY, Metropolis, Wallpaper, Dezeen, Interni, Luxe, Grey Magazine, among others.

Design Driven.

Always Learning.

Always Growing.
