Hello ­čĹő

My name is Dakota Berg.

I am a -year old designer living and working in New York with a passion for branding, product design, business and technology.

Professional Experience

My professional experience includes a wide variety of freelance work spanning over the last years, working directly with a variety of clients, along with working alongside some amazing designers and art directors at various top design agencies including BHW1 and Kl├╝ndt Hosmer. I currently lead design at SportsCastr and PANDA Interactive in New York.

From a multi-million dollar investment bank in the heart of Manhatten to innovative tech startups in the Pacific Northwest creating disruptive products & services, I strive to provide clean and iconic designs that elevate my client's brand image to the next level. I have had the pleasure of working with clients such as SGI Merchant Banking, SportsCastr, LimeLyte Technology Group, Advantage Taxidermy, Torxen, Genium, Unite Family Services & countless others.

Education

I attended the University of Washington (UW) between 2011-2012, before finishing my Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communication Design (VCD) at Eastern Washington University (EWU) in 2015. I was awarded the VCD Faculty Outstanding Student of the Year in 2014. I also graduated with a Minor in Business Administration which helped me hone my business acumen, a skillset proven invaluable to my clients and my own entrepreneurial ventures.
