Hi! Nice to meet you, I’m Mackenzie —
Busy bee, coffeeshop enthusiast, plant mom, and design strategist.
I work with sustainably-minded, female-focused entrepreneurs and small biz founders that are looking to step up their styling and strategy with intentional planning and design. My process is grounded in building context and genuine understanding. I’m obsessed with the styling and strategy needed to build out your big visions.
I’m also finishing up a Bachelor of Communications - Information Design at Mount Royal University (and working on about a dozen side projects). Information design combines visual and communication design — with a healthy dose of human-centred design. Basically, it’s about communicating well in every form, with a user-centric focus. I’m especially interested in service design, sustainability initiatives, and the intersection between people and the spaces in which they live. In practice, I thrive when I am thinking strategically, executing, and making connections. I also believe in the power of action plans, prioritizing, and coffee — lots and lots of coffee.
Right now, you can find me:
freelancing with some super fun humans
connecting people and design with in form studio
designing information at Trico Changemakers Studio
pilot project-ing with the Near Here team
planning events and coordinating volunteers with Plastic Free YYC
loving my day job as ActivateYYC Coordinator with The Federation of Calgary Communities
Booking new projects for January 2020. Send me a note to connect, I’m always up for a coffee date.
