These advertisements promote the fictional movie marathon event, Monster Movie Marathon, run at the Tampa Theater with credit to Universal Studios. This series includes 6 movie posters, an outdoor billboard, and a social media post, all without showing the monster itself. I also created a program including movie times and synopses that would be provided at the event.
These are the pages of a pocket calendar that offers information about 12 of my favorite hiking trails in beautiful Rhode Island. The information includes trail location, type, length, difficulty, and access points. Keep this on you and you will never run out of scenic spots to visit.
For this project, I created an exhibition catalog dedicated to the artist, Heather Polk. “Art C.U.R.E.S All” is Polk’s brainchild. “C.U.R.E.S” is an acronym for Creativity Unleashed Rewards Every Soul. This exhibition will be held at The Hirshhorn and display her artwork centered around supporting caregivers in creating with their own hands and being vulnerable.

Type specimen books are collections of typefaces, printing graphics, and design layout examples assembled by printing companies, graphic designers, and type foundries to demonstrate their printing capabilities. Using research, I created this volume which explores the use and origins of the “Interstate” typeface created by Tobias Frere-Jones between 1993-1995.
This is a logo created from the random combination of three words: JUICY, JOKER, and HAIR SALON. I created a logo that would represent the adjective and noun, while also embodying the feel of the service.
This corporate gift is for the clothing brand, Nature Backs — a brand that “strives to inspire everybody to be adventurous and wander into the unknown.” The cards and packaging are cohesive, with a travel backpack filled with inspirational phrases and graphics inspired by nature. This gift will be distributed out to the consumers, who are made up of travelers and explorers, as a thank you on the company’s 6 year anniversary.
This concept was created for a unique exhibition event based on a “lost art.” I chose to celebrate 80 years of the classic film, Bambi (1942) while helping to protect Maine’s wildlife in a fight against climate change with a museum installation at the Portland Museum of Art. The designs are based on Disney Animator Jake Day’s art from the original film, inspired by the state of Maine. Designs include a poster, event invitation, indoor and outdoor gallery mockups, and an assorted gift box for guests.

After an initial brand audit it was determined that the City of Boston needed a new brand identity that places more focus on the distinctiveness of historic architecture of the city.
The city currently uses a color palette of bright red, blue, and a grounding white, to represent their “certain boldness.”
I believe that it is possible to carry out this same level of boldness and efficiently represent history using different colors. In my work, I rebranded the city of Boston using the colors, dark teal, brown, and burnt orange. I also used typography that reflects beautiful scenery and old history in a rustic style. My design deviates away from the well-known sport scene and places more focus on Boston’s historic architecture.

This poster series shows opposing perspectives of a topic/issue I am interested in. The middle poster will raise awareness or start a conversation about the topic as the left and right positioned posters will be the two opposing viewpoints.
These posters focus on the concert experience and how people decide to either hold up their phones to videotape, or put them away to enjoy the live experience. They are designed to grab the attention of teenagers and young adults, as they are most likely to share the smartphone videos with their friends or on social media. The center poster includes quotes of famous performers (Bob Dylan, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Roger Waters, and Jack White), discussing their opinions against phone use at their concerts.

“In My Life” a warm-hearted and nostalgic song about looking back on life as a whole, remembering the people and places that have made an impact on my life. The song also expresses a love to someone more important than anything else, so for me, that someone is my family as a whole. The song reminds me that people come and go, and that I should appreciate and focus on the present because the memories will have a lasting impact. To reflect the song’s significance to me, I painted and collaged a life journey on a series of canvases.
