Born and raised in Chicagoland, Stephanie fuses storytelling with imagery as a graphic designer, image maker and writer. Her work ranges from branding, print design, photography, motion graphics, film editing and event planning to travel writing, poetry and large-scale communication initiatives. Offline in her studio where she prohibits the use of a computer, Stephanie explores relationships between found objects to discover new forms and movements for still and moving imagery. In 2013, she founded the Chicago Literary Map, a platform exploring the intersection of experience.

    What's the most underrated destination in your opinion?

    One’s own backyard. Whether it’s a metropolis or a small town there could always be something new to discover and new people to meet. Or at least a new way to look at your surroundings.
