Experience, focus, and innovative thinking

I’m Courtney Lord, a web and graphic designer with six years of professional experience. I graduated university with a BS in Computer Graphics & New Media. I then went on to work as a Graphic Designer at Sonalysts Inc. Currently I’m living and working in Boston as Lead Designer at Emerson College as well as filling my spare time with freelance projects. I am driven by user-centered design and a fondness for simplicity and detail.

As well as design, I’m into collaging with vintage National Geographic magazines, bike rides, punk concerts, vegan food, Brooklyn, minimalism, and my adopted pomchi, Lena.
