About Danielle Reynolds

My name is Danielle Reynolds and I am a Game Designer living in the Chicagoland area. I started making games when I was a kid for fun but recently took up designing again in August 2017 after my first GenCon. My background is in graphic design, marketing and social media. I currently work full-time as a Marketing Coordinator for Williams Architects and part-time as Social Media Coordinator for the NF Network, a non-profit for Neurofibromatosis. My dream is to be a published designer and work full-time in the industry I love. My passions include design, playing games, charity, travel, networking, superheroes, friends and family.

What advice do you have for someone who would like to incorporate gaming elements in their learning environment?

Kids have shorter and shorter attention spans today, incorporating something like gaming that will capture their attention, imagination and creativity is invaluable.

Is there a current project or anything you are working on that you would like others to check out?

I’m always working on new games and the best way to track their progress is on the DMR Creative Group Facebook Page or my website at www.dmrcreativegroup.com/games.
