My name is Esme and I am a freelance slasher: art director / designer / superwoman. My work is driven by an inevitable desire to join a political call to action through design. I love fashion, drawing, branding and tumblr. And because I couldn’t choose only one discipline I chose them all and I accidentally became an art director.
