What is Takenotes?

Takenotes is a freelance design studio focusing on branding, web design, and creative strategies for Real Estate, Mortgage Institutions, and Small Businesses.

As an enthusiastic and multidisciplinary designer I approach problems with intelligence, research, and experience.


I conceptualize and create designs with a clean and reductive voice specializing in branding, web design, interface and some front-end development.


I believe in partnering and collaboration with clients to produce work that helps deliver beautfiul experiences and build stronger organizations, companies, and small businesses.


I thrive with businesses and people who share the same passion to raise the bar. I aspire to not only do good creative work, but to build good products and services that have a positive impact on people.
