Darsey Landoe lead designer
Concepting. Though not technically a real word, it's the term best used to describe what Darsey does at Amani Global. Darsey concepts campaign themes, design motifs, even copy and photo direction. She honed her skills working through college, then at an ad agency in the south, and later in development at a non-profit. When she's not concepting, she's likely restauranting, house-fixer-upping or making up words.
