Hello there, I'm Carly, an independent graphic designer and illustrator currently hanging out in Tallahassee, FL where I graduated with a BA in studio art, with a focus in printmaking, from Florida State University. I can usually be found in my studio cave obsessing over pixels, manically screen printing up a storm, or tacking up my unsolicited art around town. I'm fueled by vegan food, the hunt for the best thrift finds and owe all my success to Command + Z. I specialize in illustration and brand identity. Most recently I've added design for packaging and animated gifs to that list. I believe brands should express themselves and tell a story so I aim to bring the values, mission, and voice to life through visuals.
With a background in screen printing, my style focuses on bold design with restricted color palettes. I love to incorporate the hand touched element so replicating print flaws, like off registered colors and lived-in apparel, is totally my jam.
When I'm not making things or ogling over cool art, you can usually find me outside trekking around with my partner and our pups. Currently we are working on converting our 1994 Ford Econoline into a camper, yeah we are those people. If you're really interested in my day to day life, I took a second long video every day for the last five years. (I've skipped 2020 for obvious reasons)

(Now back to art and design stuff)
I love to be a springboard so if you have a half-baked idea, let's chat!
Here are some projects I've done and absolutely loved and/or I'm dying to work on:
Board Game Visual Identity
Design for Packaging
Visual Development, art, or design for tv or film
(^ a girl can dream)
Book Illustration + design
