I'm Marie Rayma, designer, photography enthusiast, and all-around creative type. I graduated from the 4-year York University/Sheridan College Joint Program in Design with a Bachelor of Design Honours.
I focus on information design, typography, and visual identities & customized Wordpress websites for small companies. I get my thrills by solving problems and figuring things out—whether it is the complicated draping on a dress from Titanic, just what makes the perfect lather in a bar of soap, or which typeface is best for communicating your message to your target audience. I enjoy deconstructing concepts, understanding elements, and building it all together into something new.
I belive design is a fantastic tool for breaking down information and helping people understand complex issues. I'm passionate about helping people understand the products they use in their day to day lives (from shampoo to salsa), and helping them avoid artificial and potentially harmful ingredients. Through design, I want to empower people to examine their lives and make wise buying and lifestyle decisions.
What I've Been up to Lately
November 28, 2015 Just moved the site to a new server! I'm still having lots of fun with my blog, Humblebee & Me, and my first book Make it Up: The Essential Guide to DIY Makeup and Skin Care will be released Fall 2016 by Running Press. Exciting!
