This is a trifold invitation I designed for St. Pius X Catholic School when I freelanced for ADG. When I heard the theme was "A Night Out in Emerald City," I immediately started sketching- I couldn't wait to get started! I went with bright pop tone colors, glamorous type, and playful illustrations to pull this look together.
Moto X at Sprint
In the fall of 2013 Sprint began to carry the newest smartphone from Motorola, the Moto X. Motorola boasts about the phone’s customizability (in both color and make) and our obstacle was to make this phone stand out in a store full of similarly branded smartphones. We used color and personality in the phone display case along with simplicity on the way-finding wall panel to make sure it stood out.
This is a transportation map I redesigned for the Zurich S-Bahn train while studying at SCAD. The original map utilized a zone system as well as a series of train routes to get passengers around in Zurich. The original map separated the travel zones and train lines onto two pages to prevent them from looking cluttered. I combined them by using a neutral color scheme and brightly colored train lines. The project also entailed recreating the logo and developing a series of pictograms for places of interest. Map is not geographically correct.
Mother's Day Cards
Mother's Day Cards I sent to the ladies in my life this year. I printed the black ink on textured white paper, and hand embossed the gold detail on the front. The liner was a repeating floral pattern I designed.
The objective of this student work was to find an interesting topic backed by an assortment of facts and statistics, and then design a magazine spread around it. My interest was caught by an article I had recently read about centenarians, or people who live to 100 years or older. The central theme was to use the concept of age and birthdays, and include a birthday cupcake and dotted lines (symbolic of milestones) as repeating motifs. The data on centernarians is very postitive and encouraging, many of them are in good health and the numbers are expected to rise in the coming decades. This inspired me to use a cheerful color scheme and attempt to remove any negative ideas behind growing old.
Typographic Playing Cards
A few years ago I created a deck of playing cards using the typeface American Typewriter as the main design element, with a color palette inspired by summer. The typeface was so fun to work it, I was able to create lots of patterns and designs to get the look I wanted. These make me wish I was outside soaking up some sun and not in an office everytime I look at them.
