Healthline is the number one leading health information site in the U.S. with 72.9 million

unique monthly visitors (as of early 2020). The brand has grown to become more empathetic and authentic as design grew in importance for our users.


Healthline is dedicated to making health and wellness information accessible, understandable, and actionable so that readers can make the best possible decisions about their health. 




Being a part of the editorial team, I worked with a handful of designers and photography editors to work and continue to enhance and engage our audience.

Hybrid Photo Collage & Illustration


Collage and Photo Illustration is a way to create art that is new, stylized and original.

Utilizing clean backgrounds, subtle textures, cut out of objects and hand drawn elements,

that put a new spin on stock photography and give an original and personal touch to get the complex idea, accurate point or emotion across.
