Hi! I'm Andrea. I love making things.

I'm a graphic designer and a 2011 graduate of Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications.

Currently, I work at Boxcar Press in Syracuse, NY, where I create and customize letterpress invitations and other stationery for Bella Figura and Smock Paper. Before that, I designed print advertisements and newspaper layouts for Scotsman Press and CNY Woman magazine.

Design-wise: I tend to obsess over every little detail to ensure that a design hits the desired notes. I love working with a specific person, place, or time in mind - it's so much fun finding those reference points that make a design resonate. I have a lot of experience in print, but don't get me wrong: I know my way around the internet.

Personally: I am a huge comedy and television nerd and I enjoy taking inspiration from those realms. I have fallen in love with letterpress and would love to have my own press one day. I tap danced for 15 years. In the car I'll sing the harmony part. Hydrangeas are the prettiest flower. Upstate New York pride.
