Eve SimonCreative Director


A lapsed Philosophy major with an MFA in theatrical lighting design and 16 years experience in the web industry, Eve is either a quirky dinner party guest or a source of random knowledge. As the Creative Director at Beaconfire, a web design & development firm that works solely with nonprofit organizations, she has brought her pixel-driven leadership and unyieldingly conceptual eye to projects for The Ad Council, The American Lung Association, Feeding America, Wildlife Conservation Society, AFL-CIO, and the American Museum of Natural History.
When not helping make the world a better place (one website at a time), Eve rocks South by Southwest Interactive as the creative muscle behind The Beacon Lounge, blogs for the Huffington Post, is a frequent speaker about design communication for nonprofits, and wears an inordinate amount of black.
