This is the truest thing I’ve learned during my time in nonprofit development and fundraising: Compelling storytelling motivates people to action. There are so many worthy causes in the world, and what draws supporters to them is their personal connection to a narrative of impact. My background in graphic design has given me the ability to create narratives with dynamic visual components that engage stakeholders on a deeper level. From brochures to annual reports to grant proposals, design elevates storytelling.
I’m always looking for new opportunities to partner with nonprofits in their storytelling. If you’re interested in connecting, please contact me!
