A Kids Co. is a company that was created to start conversations with kids about life's most important stuff. Challenging and empowering stuff like emotions, climate change, money, racism, and empathy. I was lucky enough to spend over 2 years as a senior designer with this awesome mission. I was the 3rd employee hired at A Kids Co. (and only designer!) and feel privileged to have helped craft how we tell stories and push what was possible with the books we were making.

I workshopped with authors and debated with editors to help craft the best books possible. I was an illustrator (A Kids Book About Imagination, Emotions, Climate Change, A Kids Newspaper, etc.) and worked with illustrators (A Kids Book About Shame, Boredom, A Little Book About Ideas, Justice, etc.). I designed artwork for a bunch of podcasts (one of which, Worth Noting, has been frequently featured across Apple Podcasts website and emails). I spearheaded A Kids Newspaper. I put together our product catalog. I made swag. I designed emails and social media posts. I crafted web landing pages and tinkered with product pages. I did more copywriting than I probably should have. I photographed (and edited) products and authors. And I got to design a book by LeVar-freaking-Burton!
A Kids Newspaper was a pet project of mine. It leveled-up the value of our monthly subscription and worked to tie together our themes and product verticals. We took deeper dives into subjects, had interviews with authors and kids, contests and kid spotlights, engaging activities, and chuckles. It was also an opportunity to speak directly to kids without their grownups!
