Strong Towns

Video Editor | Motion Graphics Designer

 

"Mercedes was a joy to work with. She responds quickly to feedback and has an excellent artistic eye. She's been able to take complex ideas and communicate them thoughtfully in a variety of different video formats—from short-form promotional ads to longer-form lectures and webinars. We have worked with her on several projects and would be glad to work with her again."

Rachel Quednau, Program Director, Strong Towns 

As a video editor for Strong Towns, I re-engaged my student brain. It's one thing to watch and understand a video covering complex concepts. It's another altogether to  create the video to explain those ideas. Working with Strong Towns opened my eyes to a whole world of urban design I never would have considered on my own. From topics ranging from how to design a good street (not the same as a road!) to the concerns and considerations surrounding gentrification, these videos stretched my brain to create graphics and animations that fit the topic.
