creative direction



events & curatorial

A little bit about me

Hi, I’m Alana — Creative Director and co-founder of The Foundry for Art Design + Culture. I’ve had a wild ride in the advertising and design industry working with regional, national, and international clients in industries ranging from finance to fashion. My areas of expertise are creative/art direction, brand development, strategic marketing, event design and curatorial.

All told, I’d rather be in the studio or event gallery. I live an artful life and channel my love of art and community into the Foundry, my organization that serves to inspire economic opportunities for individuals working in the arts and creative sectors.

Do you need creative direction, a strategic marketing campaign or a place to find a great gluten-free doughnut? Give me a shout and let’s see if I can help you out.
