DIRECTOR OF BRANDING + MARKETING, ASSOCIATE
Lisa is a concept-focused creative with an eye for translating big ideas into meaningful brands. Growing up on a farm in the remote countryside of Washington’s Olympic Peninsula, Lisa developed her creative problem-solving skills at a young age. Her leadership of the Branding Studio at Atelier Drome is a testament to her 20 years of experience in a range of industries, from commercial photography to graphic design to landscape architecture.
As a former licensed Landscape Architect, Lisa brings a design mindset to every project. Her unique ability to understand and leverage the intrinsic relationship between brand identity and other types of design allows her to approach visioning and strategy from a comprehensive perspective. With a B.A. in Art and decades of experience on both the client and designer side, she excels at creating inventive solutions for real-world use.
Lisa's approach is rooted in an intimate and authentic understanding of the clients’ goals, and she excels at guiding them step-by-step through the process of building their business identity. Her big-picture thinking extends beyond the project and the client as she strives to meaningfully embed each project within larger community and industry contexts. Lisa's commitment to the community extends beyond her work at Atelier Drome, through her photography work with local businesses and artists, and her role as the Community Manager with The Futur for their Accelerator program, where she is dedicated to supporting emerging creative business owners. When she isn’t behind the desk or the lens, Lisa can be found in the mountains, by the sea, or playing with her overly fluffy puppy.
