SOOP Strategies provides Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) Services in the Mining Industry. I worked on their Inaugural Sustainability Report for 2022. They didn't have too much of a brand so I referenced some elements from their previous website to create a design system for the report. Once that was completed I worked with SOOP to update their old site since it had some organizational issues with it, and they found it difficult to update.

Company description
I'm a multidisciplinary designer who has worked in all kinds of industries by specializing in all things design, but with a focus on health, well-being, and sustainability.
Why am I an RGD?
I'm an RGD because for so many years I have benefited from being a member and giving back in this community as well.
What is my most memorable RGD moment?
I have a few memorable moments, but the main one was going to my first RGD social night where I met other designers and just talked about all things design-related. After that, I tried to go out to as many socials as I could and I eventually organized a few myself!
Why am I a designer?
I'm a designer because I believe that sharing stories and information through visual mediums can help teach audiences and allow them to grow.
Why should you hire me?
My aim is to connect forward-thinking organizations with their audiences through captivating creativity. I'm engaged in uplifting the well-being of all people by taking an in-depth approach to design. Every company is unique in what they do and why they do it, and I can provide the visual solutions your plans require. I explore tough questions and build relationships to creatively guide and support your organization. Together, we’ll make peculiar but wonderful connections that perhaps we can’t see alone.
Where do I see myself in 5 years?
I see myself working successfully and sustainably as a freelancer and business owner. I also plan on expanding my skills into new areas of design that can elevate creativity further for the people I work with and for myself!
