Hello and welcome to my online portfolio. I'm a passionate and dedicated graphic designer + art director who's had the good fortune to work on amazing projects with amazing people—authors, chefs, musicians, and companies big and small. When I'm not working at my beloved Mac, you might find me honing my photography skills, enjoying treasured time with my son, or playing old-time string band music.
I'm grateful to be able to do what I love, and in turn help others share their big ideas, dreams, and hard work.
Let’s collaborate! You can find me here: hello @ lisabermandesign.com It would be swell to hear from you.
DESIGN / ART DIRECTION EXPERIENCE :
I’m back to working with Weldon Owen Publishing International in San Francisco, freelancing most days as Art Director + Designer on the cookbook team. I love the combo of photography, design, the written word, and delicious, shared meals! I’m still available for a few choice freelance jobs here and there, plus opportunities for photography shoots or assisting! Additionally, I recently wrapped up a 3-month contract position as Senior Graphic Designer at Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) where I got to collaborate on very important issues like freedom of speech and internet privacy! (Check out eff.org).
