Babe Vibes

I founded Babe Vibes, a media company, in 2014. On our multimedia site, we made one-off publications, interview babes through our popular visual interview series, and promoted women artists and designers in our online store. We typically made work around topics like identity and self-care.

I acted Babe Vibes’ editor and creative director. I conducted, wrote, and designed the interviews, managed social media, art directed and designed all of the publications and projects, ran a busy online shop, and developed most of the site.

Block is a zine I co-wrote and created with Danielle Sullivan (of Wild Ones) for Babe Vibes. It’s about work, creative block, and how we make. I designed the print zine, along with large-scale and pull-out prints. Digital prints can be purchased on Babe Vibes’ shop.
