A variety of lettering from recent personal projects.
Raise Funds Raise Hope
Raise Funds Raise Hope, a program for getting youth involved in Unbound, needed a new look. (The original marketing materials involved crayola markers and stick figures. It was time.) I created a new visual identity and worked with our video producer Jon Lim on an informational video.
I previously worked as a graphic designer for the communications department at Unbound, an international nonprofit. I worked with the brand to create captivating design that tells the stories of the people they work with, and accurately represents the Unbound mission. A 35 year old organization with a very fresh rebrand presented an interesting challenge for the design team. I had the opportunity to develop and interpret the young visual brand as the company continued to grow and change, including creating identities for programs and publications, brainstorming new marketing strategies, and building their library of icons, patterns and illustrations.
Podcrastinate is a podcast all about sound, podcasting and radio. With energetic hosts, a lighthearted tone, and lots of laughs, it's a half hour every week that any audiophile would be hard-pressed to miss. I came up with a fun identity that attempts to capture the spirit of the show, using bright colors and a cheeky tagline: "We're all ears".
I created a campaign design for Greenpeace's fight against the Japanese illegal whaling practices. This concept was all about stirring up conversation about the issue by creating an image with impact that grabs attention and also translates across different mediums.
The Otto Museum of Art
The Otto Museum of Art is a new museum concept in the heart of San Francisco's Marina District. Sharing a location with the historic Palace of Fine Arts, the Otto contrasts the setting with a modern, open approach to art appreciation and education. I developed an identity that would express the Otto's devotion to modern art as well as fuel the welcoming community surrounding it.
I designed an interactive tour guide app that would allow the user to travel through the museum on a guided tour, or skip around to different pieces and create their own museum experience. The guide features audio content as well as a full transcript and complete info on each piece and its history as well as the option to share their experience through social media.
Keep Books Trending
Keep Books Trending is a collaborative public awareness project put together by myself and fellow designers Derrick Weishaar and Abby Kallenbach. Our goal for the project was to get our collegiate community excited about reading books. We used our knowledge of design and the power of social media to put together a successful interactive campaign on the K-State campus.
Citizen 2020 was a prompt focusing on the future. We were to create something that showed our ideal vision for the world in 2020. I created an illustration to portray the idea of religious freedom--different forms of worship coming together to create a lotus flower which in some religions signifies peace and harmony, and a moth which in some eastern religions signifies change.
Jason Scuilla is an internationally known printmaker, professor, and a good friend of mine. In the Spring of 2016 he held a series of shows in Italy, and he asked me to design a series of showcards that were both cohesive and related to the branding of the different galleries. It was a fun challenge to design around the work of one of my favorite artists.
Kansas State University
A selection of work done for different departments and on-campus groups at Kansas State University
The Kansas State Collegian is a student-run publication that puts out 10,000 newspapers daily. Over the course of two years I created numerous illustrations for op-ed articles as well as covers for special edition issues, generally under super tight deadlines.
I provide headshot photography for emerging actors and professionals. Currently scheduling headshot sessions in Kansas City, MO and surrounding areas.
I fell in love with printmaking my freshman year of college, and it became an escape from the stress of my other studies. I became especially enthralled with etching and relief, it felt good to get my hands dirty. This is a selection of some of my favorite print works.
