And welcome! Here’s a little glimpse into my work. I’ve been designing and art directing for over 20 years. I began my journey in print and television motion graphics, and quickly moved into web, UX design and branding.

I’ve always loved to create and am happiest finding inspiration in the little things around me. I feel so grateful that my art obsession turned into a career and that I truly love.

My main objective when starting a project is to connect with my clients…listen, learn and provide a solution that will not only look awesome, but clearly communicate the message they are trying to convey. I often collaborate with other designers and developers to make the magic happen which delivers unparalleled results.

When I’m not designing, I’m most likely doing yoga, hiking, whipping up a new recipe, or goofing around with my 3 kids.

    MPD was an absolute joy to work with. It was time for me to take my yoga business online, yet I was having trouble articulating the aesthetic I was going for. Marla took her time listening and learning about my teaching style and the message that I wanted to give to my client base. Not only did she create a logo that I am so proud of, but she gave recommendations on how to brand my business so that everything from my website to my social media has a cohesive design.  A good logo says everything and I cannot thank Marla enough for materializing my vision into a brand that sells. I would recommend MPD to anyone who wants to bring their brand and business to the next level!

    Working with Marla was a dream.  Although my knowledge and language of logos and web design was limited to say the least, Marla was able to effortlessly translate and transform my concepts into the most perfect solution for my needs.  I could not be happier with her work!  She is extremely easy to communicate with, and readily accessible.  If ever I asked for changes or revisions, Marla always took my feedback professionally and was never defensive or precious about her designs, which was not my experience of other designers I had worked with in the past.  I truly felt listened to and supported in all aspects of our association.  Marla is a creative visionary.  Her cleverness and imagination were a constant source of inspiration, and from them sprang a well of ideas I could never have dreamed, let alone believed would be actualized.  I have referred Marla to numerous people over the years and all have been thrilled with the ease of her partnership and her dedication to excellence.  I cannot recommend her more highly!
