While Dani’s accomplishments in the music industry were fulfilling, she felt a growing desire to make a more significant impact. Motivated to effect change on a larger scale, she founded The Beacon Design Collective Inc. This company aimed to create buy-in for clients in social justice and emerging sustainability technology sectors by producing clear, attractive, and functional design assets. Dani and her team became values-aligned partners, utilizing their expertise to empower clients and communicate their values effectively. Dani’s journey showcases the relentless pursuit of her passions and her unwavering dedication to creating a better future. She has consistently combined her artistic talents with her deep-rooted environmental values to drive positive change.
