Visual Design, Games, and Photography

What's Your Story?

My name is Aven, and I deal in design. Through the course of my career I have developed a passion for effective communication through visual storytelling and branding. I’ve logged just over 15 years of experience creating visuals and products for brands of various sizes. From small local vendors to some of the biggest names in entertainment, my focus is always on getting to the heart of the story and working with my clients to find their voice.

I often scale as needed to meet the demands of various projects by teaming up with talented freelancers in my personal network of design and video production professionals. If you have a surface that needs art, we can help you get it there!

Tabletop Game Design

Since 2016 we’ve made a bit of a name for ourselves as a top-notch board game design group. Tight mechanics, best in class art, and relatable themes enjoyable by all ages. Cantankerous Cats was our first breakout hit, with Prosperitea to be released as our follow up title. We have also been commissioned to work on games for other publishers.

I specialize in architectural and commercial photography. Wide angle lenses, dramatic angles, and cinematic flair are my defining traits as a photographer. I usually shoot for commercial clients requiring razor sharp, marketable images that sell a product or location. I am consistently cited as being ego free, easy to work with, and I allow you to keep your RAW files for use by your own creative staff.
