A brand breaking down barriers

For nearly four years, I worked as a Senior Designer for the world’s largest private educational company, EF Education First. EF’s mission—to break down barriers of language culture and geography—is an easy one to get behind and brings on some exciting work. Since I started my own business, I have been fortunate to continue working with EF to help promote a subject I'm very passionate about—travel.


Meet the Client 

Go Ahead Tours, an EF Education First company offers travel experiences for adults of all ages. They're dedicated to providing exciting and enlightening cultural experiences all over the world. A leader in group travel experiences since 1990, Go Ahead Tours’ broad range of trips and excursions includes something for every traveler.

About the project 

I worked closely with this fun creative crew, to produce dozens of emails and materials to get adults of all ages to want to jump out of their comfort zone and go explore the world on a Go Ahead Tour.


Meet the Client 

EF Foundation for Foreign Study is a nonprofit committed to promoting global awareness for over 30 years, the leader in high school exchange, bringing more international students to the United States than any other program of its kind. Their mission is to promote international understanding and global awareness across the United States, and to do so with the highest levels of program quality and participant support in the exchange community.

About the Project 

I worked along side a small but mighty team of marketers and creative folk based in EF's offices in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Lucerne, Switzerland. This work included both design and photography for booklets, their newly launched newsletter, and presentation materials.


Meet the client 

EF Explore America is the domestic division of EF Education First—they provide the expertise and support that comes with nearly 50 years of experience. They are the world’s largest private educational organization and were the first tour provider to be accredited. Now, they're accredited by six prestigious organizations that have recognized the educational value their tours provide. 

About the Project 

As the lead graphic designer, I worked with the marketing team and collaborated with a copywriter, junior designer and occasional freelance designers to tackle just about any and everything this growing brand needed. I spear-headed the design of a plethora of projects including, but not limited to: website & social media, email marketing, packaging, booklets, travel brochures, educational materials, posters, event banners, direct mail pieces and videos.
