Check out my piece about color psychology for CodeCondo!
 
McDonald’s, Burger King, Pizza Hut, KFC — what do all these restaurants have in common, besides cheap, greasy food? If you guessed the color red, you’re right. Their logos and the inside of their eating establishments have been carefully designed to include red. According to color psychology, red stimulates your appetite by exciting you and drawing you in.

Story
Tagline
Freelance writer and designer. I like to make stuff.
Introduction
My name's Adrienne, and I love writing about all kinds of things, from social media to culture to travel. You can find a good collection of my work on my blog Design Roast.

I've written for a few places you might have heard of - such as Content Marketing Institute and MarketingProfs - and I regularly contribute to SiteProNews, Starpulse, and Search Engine People, among other places. I am always looking for great new places to contribute.

When I'm not writing, you might find me engrossed in a true crime novel, speaking French at a conversational meetup, or attempting to cook delicious Asian cuisine in my tiny kitchen. (I also have a blog about my love of food - check it out!) I also love wandering around cities and going on spontaneous roadtrips.
Bragging rights
Offerpop named me one of their six must-read social media marketers.
Education
  • Kenyon College
    Studio Art, 2008 - 2012
    As a studio art major, I did all kinds of things, from charcoal drawings to cut paper animations. If my school had offered a French minor, I would have been one. Also took courses in French, history, and C++ programming.
  • Sarah Lawrence College in Paris
    French, 2011 - 2011
    Semester study abroad; took four French courses: French language, history of French film, France and the European Union, and Engraving.
