This was a typography level one assignment. The goal was to create a magazine layout from an article of our choice. I took the assignment as an opportunity to visually test an idea I had been sitting on. Amazon Prime Sustainable. The article I chose was a New York Times profile of Stewart Brand. The Man Who Changed the World, Twice by David Brooks. In addition to the magazine layout (typography) I was trying to capture a style and color palette […]
For the past few months I’ve been sitting on a “visual design” concept that allows me to track progress of my health. Specifically lesions on my brain and spinal cord in relation to symptoms. The 3D visual of the design concept was taken from Microsoft Garage Project InnerEye.

As a medium to communicate I saw Project InnerEye as a […]

Children use their fine motor skills when writing, holding small items, buttoning clothing, turning pages, eating, cutting with scissors, and using computer […]
Different assignments and sketches for typography class. Typography matters because it gives visual character to how you want to be heard.

Below are sketches for the first week assignment to create a drop cap. I worked through a few letters then settled on D. That drop cap assignment was the first time I understood how the intention of […]
This was my final for Graphic Design Level 1. The assignment was creating a movie poster. The movie I chose was Burnt with Sienna Miller and Bradley Cooper. The movie is about a young prodigy coming back for redemption. As a young chef not knowing how to handle success he lost control both of himself and his community. The movie is about him coming back and creating a space and community for himself. It’s also a story of trust, love […]
This was my first design. Rich Soil Bank. The concept was a retail bank that operated on the basis of functions instead of rights. The design framework was biomimicry. Could a bank operate on the cellular level that life does? 2011 – 2014. I got a few things right and a lot of things I didn’t. And that’s okay. What I learned from this personal project was project management. That as a designer you have to consider business model and engineering constraints. […]
