About

Welcome to my portfolio site! I'm Mary McDonald, a graphic designer and have an extensive background in design ranging from editorial to marketing and branding. Most recently I worked at Standard & Poor's as a Senior Designer in Marketing and Brand Management providing design services for various business units in the U.S. and abroad. While I come from a traditional print background, I have had the opportunity to work on web-based products as well, with focus on user-interface and integrating the brand across a wide range of materials.

Having recently relocated to San Francisco I'm currently freelancing and looking forward to new opportunities and projects. If you would like my resume or to contact me please email me and I can provide more in-depth information as needed.
