Hello there! I’m happy we get to share some good vibes right now. Check it all out and always feel welcome to reach out @davallree or hit up my inbox. Whether it be about design, the unknown-but-exciting-future, your troubles, or just about life, let's talk for a while. You could also help me out and proofread my résumé.
Currently, I contribute to the Material Design team at Google San Francisco as a visual designer. Recently, I have contributed to the defining of Google’s Material Theme and the visual exposition of Material.io, the home of Material Design. Theming, layout, and new ways to express identity through technology really get me excited, but so does ice cream or a pretty sunset. My only goal is to remain thoughtful with all I encounter. I currently live in San Francisco with some plants, the hills, and my canary... and we would love to hear how you are doing.
Holm Commonwealth: A Practical Guide to a Life of Adventure was created as part of an assignment to brand my own fictional country, or my personal utopia. The country of Holm is a nation that disappears and reappears somewhere else in the Universe every eighteen hours. Inhabitants of Holm prepare themselves for adventure and exploration everyday. They are a group of researchers, scientists, adventurers, and artists always looking towards the unknown.
The end product became a sort of brandbook -as- acceptance package for being accepted into a life of adventure with Holm Commonwealth. The dustjacket also serves as a tourism poster!
