Job Designer / Seven Tree Design Co.

Lives In Munjoy Hill

I'm the owner and designer at Seven Tree Design Co. We focus on creating brand identities and websites for local business and start ups. As a designer, I love combining traditional and digital methods to create beautiful and functional design. 

I also run Hills & Trails Co., a camping apparel and lifestyle company based in Portland, Maine.

Why did you choose Portland? I lived in Philadephia for five years where I got my degree in graphic design. After working in advertising for a year, I decided I wanted to live in a smaller city where I could thrive as a designer while being able to camp, hike, and snowboard. My family lives in coastal Maine, so it was a good fit.

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? East Bayside. I am always working at Coffee by Design, visiting my friends at Maine Craft Distillery and Rising Tide. I call it my bermuda triangle.

What's the most surprising thing about this city? How supportive and welcoming people are, I don't think I could have started my own business anywhere else.
