about me

Lisa Burford sitting near a pool

I have been in the professional design world since 1999. As a young kid, I was interested in illustrating, having picked up on my mom's artistic talents, and my passions and drive — for as long as I can remember — have been based around creative outlets. I can say without a doubt that this was the reason I chose to explore the many areas of print, digital, video, and tech that I have.

I am always pursuing concepts that push the boundaries of visual communication and experiment with different mediums, always driven to try new things. Living in Joshua Tree, California, I am constantly inspired by the desert nature that surrounds me including my garden that's full of cacti and flowering plants.
