I'M

Raven.

I'M A BRAND BUILDER/DESIGNER/WRITER/MARKETER
a creative 'slashie' based in NYC
 

a mind for strategy. an eye for design.

a little about me...

I have a degree in journalism, eight years of experience in PR and a certification in UXUI design, so when I lost my job as a PR director in the travel industry during the pandemic I decided to sit back and think about what I really wanted to focus on… and tbh, I couldn’t decide what I love doing the most, so I decided to do it all! 🤷🏽‍♀️

 

From my background in PR, I innately understand the impact of branding, marketing and connecting with consumers. I’m passionate about translating my experiences in writing, PR, marketing and design into content creation, strategic campaign development, creative ideation and brand identity to realize authentic, problem-solving strategies and create visuals that both raise engagement and drive the bottom line for the brands that I work with. 

I look at challenges from all angles and take a layered approach to brand amplification. I believe in the big picture and I believe it takes a holistic strategy to bring it to life.  Overall, I pride myself on having a mind for strategy and an eye for design – that usually looks like a strong visual identity, a clever PR story and a splash of digital marketing.

I look forward to building with you!

Raven

"There aren't enough words to describe my experience working with Raven.

 

She was much more than my website designer; she acted as a mentor throughout the entire process of building my brand. She didn't look at my project as just a job; she threw herself into my brand as though it were her own. Raven's design, writing, branding, and marketing skills are truly top-notch."
