Vanessa Duff

Associate Creative Director

Go ahead—tell Vanessa it can’t be done. Then stand back and watch her turn water into wine. Vanessa thrives on creative challenges. She can cook a feast with bare cupboards, transform a living room into a wedding-worthy venue and pull dazzling design out of a chaotic whiteboard sketch. The stiffer the challenge, the more brilliant the outcome.

Vanessa has worked her magic for a wide range of clients, including AHA itself. One of her favorite projects: helping local heater firm Cadet overhaul its brand with a new look, feel and logo that emanate warmth and humanity. She was also part of the creative genius behind the design of our award-winning PRAXIS14 app.

Her appetite for pushing boundaries, stretching resources and exploring what’s possible extends beyond her design work. She’s passionate about all things science fiction, science fact and the nuances of spatial design.
