Steph Salerno | Art Direction & Design

Hello, I'm Steph Salerno, a creative director & designer that partners with purpose-driven organizations to craft thoughtful visual solutions across print and digital media. I strive to transform brands, inspire positive change, and improve the conditions of world and its inhabitants through strategic design.

For over 16 years, I have been helping brands of all sizes across an array of industries communicate with their audiences by conceptualizing and designing thoughtful visual solutions, including: branding and identity systems, storytelling through comprehensive print and digital campaigns, and developing accessible user experiences and responsive websites.

My approach is tailored to each project and client, rooted in research and open dialogue to understand the big picture of an organization and what problems they would like to solve. Careful consideration is given to ensure vision and narrative are represented appropriately in order to produce work that deepens engagement and drives results. If you would like to find out more about me or discuss potential collaborations, please say hello.
