Doris grew up on the colorful Texas/Mexico border which helped shape her vision of finding beauty in things mundane yet authentic. From the Texas border to the heart of Texas at UT Austin, Doris then made her move northeast to pursue a Masters degree in graphic design at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. She spent the following few years working at Seymour Chwast's acclaimed Pushpin Studios in NYC before founding her own company, Twinpop Design. There she developed her branding skills with large clients, among them Dr. Seuss and Barbie. After 9 years in NYC, the road back to South Texas beckoned, and Doris expanded and refined her branding skills at Giles Design in San Antonio. She worked collectively on a variety of projects including The Esquire, Bohanan’s, Il Sogno, Can Plant, and Melissa Guerra. Today, her main pursuit is sparking the internal fire of her students at the University of the Incarnate Word and helping clients express their vision through selective freelance projects like The Special Projects Social, Minnie’s Tavern, Peeler Farms, Uncommon Fare, Tim the Girl and The Fairview.
"Doris is the most talented designer I have ever worked with. Not only does she have an uncanny sense of style and taste, she communicates clearly and seems to be able to read your vision. I can not recommend her more highly."–Tim McDiarmid, Tim the Girl
“One of the best. In every way.”–DK Holland,
Teaching Notes: As a design educator, I have the privilege of working with students and seeing the inspiring work they do. Below are just a few examples of some of the award winning work our UIW student’s have accomplished recently. These reflect skills in expressive typography. I will post and rotate more as they come. Visit soon to see more inspiring work.
