Design all night.

Hello, I’m Neal. My almost 20 years experience as a designer ranges from working in the architectural industry designing signage and wayfinding systems, to working on branding projects in agency settings, and in recent years working as an in-house designer, art director, and manager. I have worked full-time with large global brands, freelanced for small fast-paced agencies, and helped build and grow start-ups. I’m currently working full-time at the B2B company Vistra in their Boston office helping align the branding globally and rolling out their International Expansion division in the Americas.

I’m available for freelance opportunities.
