I was selected to design the posters and exhibition graphics for the UMichigan BFA thesis show titled "Close Encounters."
Visual Identity and Branding
I created a complete rebrand and visual identity sytem for the Washtenaw Bicycling and Walking Coalition. The organization focuses on policy and safety and advocates to make the roads of Washtenaw county easier to navigate for bikers and walkers alike. I changed the name of the organization to Bike Walk Washtenaw and created a book portraying my process throughout the rebranding. Below are a few selected spreads from my process book.
I created publications materials for an exhibition showcasing the work of Stefan Sagmeister including a catalog, a brochure, invitations and banners. I chose Sagmeister as the designer for my publications because I admire the risks, uniqueness, and honesty he encompasses throughout all of his work. Similarly to Sagmeister's Things I Have Learned In My Life So Far, I laser-cut a cover sleeve and turned my exhibition catalog into interchangeable booklets. The booklets are composed in dialogue with Stefan and me as our narrative unfolds through different weights of Futura and conversational layouts.

For my senior thesis I embarked on a year-long exploration on how to more effectively present the issue of gun violence. For my final installation I created an interactive environment with floor typography and transparent posters that brought passersby in the gallery into the haunting scene. I accompanied my piece with booklets portraying my year long process as well as gun violence statistics, facts, and powerful quotes.

Feed The Addiction
This typographic installation portrays college student's addiction to caffeine while they work. For this interactive art piece, I set up in the lobby of Central Saint Martins and spelled the word "addict" out of cups filled with coffee. I then put up a sign reading "Free Coffee" and filmed as the coffee disappeared, proving that caffeine addiction is prevalent in college students. The sound in this video is meant to be aggravating and irritating to the listener - enabling the viewer to feel similar symptoms to a coffee addict before he/she gets their "fix." The sound fades as the cups disappear just as the symptoms of coffee depravation disappear as an addict intakes caffeine.
I have recently installed CNN breaking news notifications on my phone. I notice that when I open my phone after receiving a breaking-news alert, the notification disappears without expanding on the information. This leads to me subconsciously forgetting about the breaking news alert entirely within minutes. I am now challenging myself to create pieces responding to each disturbing breaking news update I receive. I created this visual in response to recent Florida mass shootings.
Stefan Sagmeister posted and reviewed my piece on his public instagram account (posted below.)
Recipient of Irene Bychinsky Bendler Award in Design 2017
In the summer of 2016, I interned in the Cover Design department at Penguin Random House under the guidance of Paolo Pepe. Throughout my internship I created a cover design for Sophie Kinsella's upcoming book My Not So Perfect Life, a reinterpretation of the Wizard of Oz book cover, and a cover design for a past project where I explored my grandmother's Alzheimer's.
