About Me

I am a graphic designer & illustrator based in San Antonio, TX

Hello! I’m Marla and I’m a visual designer born and raised in SATX. I’ve been an avid reader since I was a child and my love of books has helped shaped me into the designer I am today. I love visualizing new ideas and creating solutions for the projects I work on. I’m passionate about storytelling through design and finding creative solutions to help brands communicate clearly.

When I’m not creating, I like to spend my spare time with my family and friends, listening to audiobooks and podcasts, catching up on my favorite shows, or out in the sun exploring nature trails.

I'm a creative problem solver, and I start with research.

I'm passionate about working together with others to make effective designs.

I've worked on a diverse array of projects.
