An offbeat food truck, obsessed with oddities. The pigeon follows the traveling circus from city to city.
the pigeon experiments with type treatments and layouts. The goal was to create a cohesive brand that had a tool kit that could be pulled apart and used in unique ways.
Type was used as a substitute to imagery to represent imagery. The pigeon logo is broken in the same fashion as the illustration. Words circle the pizza box like a chef would roll out the pizza dough. The word “coffee” is stacked like a pile of coffee beans. An eye chart represents how vision is blurred the more a person drinks.
Blend is a seasonal line of juices that can be mixed and matched to create custom variety packs for consumers. Each season they send out a special edition flavor with a limited edition illustration.
Inspired by the genuine notion of a handwritten postcard. Sincerely’s Senior Show branding focuses on the classes “send off,” our last school event before we graduate The University of Kansas.
Students have a stamp that represents their personal Meyer’s Brigg acronym.
On February 20th, 2014, KUDW united four disciplines, Visual Communication, Industrial Design, Architecture and Photo Media for one week through a wide variety of events. Programing of events will be designed with hybridized themes that will be welcoming to individuals of any major.
One of three lead designers/coordinators for the first KU Design Week. After establishing a brand and guidelines, we expanded our team to four other designers who followed our brand guidelines to create event posters.
Our team worked with eight other students from different majors to plan and coordinate the week of events.

Last semester Kiosk celebrated 25 years and 50 printed issues of Kiosk. This edition of Kiosk wanted to create a nod to their rich history and recently completed milestone by exploring the satirical theme of “print is dead.” This edition uses augmented reality to combine print and digital design.

Toursi is a farm to table product whose goal is to elevate how pickles are perceived. Pickle juice is full of the probiotics and electrolytes that cure a variety of health issues, Touris' goal is to upscale the pickle market by showing pickles are more than just a side dish at random parties.
Toursi aims to use as little resources as possible with their packaging. They have created a paper bag system that allows them to eliminate any toxic adhesive or bleached paper. The paper bags are 100% recycled and can be reused to take individual pickles on the go.
The Station looks at the typography of fire stations. Photographed and designed by myself.
The concrete floors of fire stations inspired the grey foundation of the pages. Type was built on curved paths, similar to the unique type structures around fire trucks. Repetition of paragraph titles represents the flash of sirens. They're visible for a second, disappear, and reappear as the truck speeds by.
Since the early years of the Chronicle Books Fellowship program there has been a promotional poster produced semi-annually for each Fellowship session, designed by one of the current Fellows. Each fellow presents an idea/concept to the managers and heads of department, to have one direction selected.
The brief asked for a gender neutral, type-based poster. (In the past, poster have been very illustrative and on the feminine side.) I thought this would be the perfect project to experiment with type. Bellow are the explorations leading up to the final poster.
Concept: A poster that showcased the word "Fellowship" emerging from stacks of paper/books to represent recent students going through the program to be emerge with a better knowledge of publication design.
Hooptie: “a car, especially an old or dilapidated one.”
Typeface based of a 1972 Land Yacht. The typeface comes in two styles and ten weights. Five“rounded” and five “sharp,” weights. The difference between rounded and sharp are the seen through the interior enclosures.
As the years progress the interiors wear away (line grows).
The Noun&Noun Challenge is an ongoing personal project of combining two random objects into a cohesive icon/logo set.

Granny Sue has been making sauces and selling them from her kitchen window for over 50 years. She hand paints each label on doilies and bottles them with an extra pinch of love. Often times you’ll find her 1st place county fair pies cooling in the window, next to her bunny, Susie.
From Granny's kitchen to your cupboard.
