Concept: This was my final for Graphic Design Level One. 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 reinvention, creativity, self acceptance, trust, love and patience. Goal: The concept of my movie poster was to capture […]
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. […]
Concept: Wealth Bar This was a concept I came up with in 2011 when staying at Hotel Andez near Wall Street. It’s call Wealth Bar. The concept was taken from Apple’s Genius Bar where the company emulates Jobs’ passion for putting customers first. “And the more time customers spend in the branches, with the bankers in an “advisory role,” the more likely customers are to sign up for additional banking products (rolling over their IRA’s and 401K’s for example). Which doesn’t […]

Class icebreaker. Instead of introductions each person was to make a self portrait collage. Once finished portraits were collected and randomly redistributed through out the class. Each person was to interpret and share with the class what they could gage about the person from the portrait they received. I got sophisticated, natural, elegant, organized, coffee lover, bold.
Website for streamlining processes. The company I worked for at the time had no computer or internet in the office before I join the company. As I slowly changed things (remodeled the office and set up a computer) I later inquired with management about bringing other people onboard to let me focus on big picture items. Transfer work from the CEO to me. I also approached management about having an online presence for recruiting and efficiency. Out of the phone calls made […]
Bare’ is biomimetic bra. Different than biometrics as you’re not collecting data. The design mimics the antagonistic muscle structure for a better support and lymph/ fascia movement as the breasts sit on top of the muscle and move in a figure-8 motion, and lymph (stored toxins in the body) are milked passively through muscle movement. One theory behind breast cancer is that the bra under-wire restricts the function of muscle moment to drain lymph. “Fascia is a thin layer of connective tissue that […]
