I am Steph D'Aurio, a multi-disciplinary Design Director seeking to engage with purpose-driven brands that support positive change.
I have 14 years of industry experience as a designer and brand strategist and spent the last seven years in various creative leadership and people management roles. I'm well-versed in building brand identities, delivering marketing campaigns, and designing digital products for major global brands. In 2021 I earned my Master's in Branding from the New York School of Visual Arts, where I learned from and worked alongside many industry icons. The graduate program broadened my approach to brand strategy, rooted in formal design training and critical thinking.
The skills that set me apart, and have helped me deliver award-winning work, are my ability to apply deep curiosity and empathy, my creative intuition, and the application of human-centric research to connect with customers from many angles.
