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.
Together, let's make a spectacular impact. You can find me here: hello @ lisabermandesign.com It would be swell to hear from you.
DESIGN / ART DIRECTION EXPERIENCE :
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). Before that, I spent 2+ years working as Associate Art Director on cookbooks at Weldon Owen Publishing in San Francisco—mostly in collaboration with Williams Sonoma. I love the combo of photography, design, the written word, and delicious meals!
My clients also include: The Exploratorium, Andrews-McMeel Publishing, Freight & Salvage, Roots & Shoots Photography, Bill Graham Presents/The Fillmore, 3 Degrees Inc., The Gap, Banana Republic, Brooks/Cole Publishing Co. + Wadsworth Publishing Co. (Cengage Learning), The Cook & Her Farmer Restaurant, Nepenthe Restaurant, Kyle Publishing, Rev One Design (with Genentech), San Francisco Bluegrass & Old-Time Festival, Jewish Music Festival, Sony Records, Olde West Audio Replication, countless music festivals + musicians, and many more.
