I create print material, websites, signage, and more for non-profit organizations and other amazing clients whose missions and work I believe in.

My work for clients frequently involves everything from content strategy and writing and editing, to design and production.

Website design

Website for Hudson Valley Blooms. I’ve been designing websites since 1996, when I designed the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s first website. Our photography budget was so limited that I scanned live flowers and ferns for site navigation images—a “naturalist” approach at a time of blinking web graphics.

Signage design

“Green Trail” signage for Queens Botanical Garden. I conceived, designed, and oversaw fabrication and installation of more than 28 signs about the Garden’s sustainability practices. The interpretive signage project was undertaken with Janet Marinelli / Blue Crocus Consulting, who developed the signage content.

Writing & more

I’m also a writer and editor. My website work often includes content strategy and writing, including for sites on recycling and reuse for the City of New York. I have written books on activism (Women Activists, The Feminist Press), and food safety and the environment (Safe Food: Eating Wisely in a Risky World, written with the Center for Science in the Public Interest; For Our Kids’ Sake, Sierra Club Books, written for NRDC). I edited gardening handbooks for the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and wrote sections of the Gardener’s Desk Reference (Henry Holt & Co.).
