Hullo! I’m Fern of The Contagious Fern and I’m based in Los Angeles (though half of my heart is still in NYC).

I’m a multi-hyphenate creative with over a decade of experience across the globe spanning a multitude of industries from entertainment to healthcare fintech. I began my journey as a graphic designer, expanded into copywriting, branding, and visual identity, then UX/UI design. (Long live Figma!) After a wonderful run as Head of Creative at the startup Rivia Health, I’ve returned to my freelancing roots! What’s it like to work with me? Hear it straight from 10 years of clients and collaborators since 2011 on LinkedIn. (Scroll down to Recommendations.)

When I’m not designing, I write a newsletter about the little things in life, bicycle around LA in a watermelon helmet, and get audibly gleeful every time I see another ad for live theater. (I’ve missed it so much!)
