The internet can be an overwhelming place, filled with an infinite amount of information as well as distractions.
Time seems to slip away when you find ten new blogs to follow, or see what your friends are up to on a certain social network. It's so easy to browse for hours at a time online, not knowing entirely how that time was spent, losing perspective as well as valuable links within your flat internet history.
Now there's a new way to look at your own complex relationship with the web.
Lynda.com is an established leader of online learning in the creative industries and beyond. This is my reimagination of their website and brand elements.
Serving Women Across Nations is a nonprofit connecting women in the states with women in developing countries through micro-loans, changing the lives of women everywhere. In creating a rebrand for SWAN, my goal was to create a logo mark that transcends obvious avian iconography while being strong and feminine. The resultant hand-painted logo turned out to be a playful exercise in gesture and implied form.
START (Street Art) Magazine is the premier resource for current and emerging artists within urban art culture. For this project, I approached creating an identity for a quarterly print-based entity in a holistic way, starting with a logo mark and extending that through the system. By creating a strong grid and form, I was able to allow for a system that could change it’s colors based on the quarterly issue, or by department.
Evolving out of the ‘drifts’ that came out of the Fluxus movement in the mid ‘60s, Psychogeographic Mapping is a way of exploring ambience and emotion within urban spaces.

Designed as a portion of the Washington State Tourism website, Experience WA is a way to connect users with everything Washington has to offer. As an exercise, I went about creating an alternative view of Washington that was whimsical and hand-made, all of the collateral revolving around the 10 second motion piece I created.

The following collection of black and white photographs are from a book I created called Lucky. Silly. Happy. which told a visual narrative of a day in my life during my Junior year at Cornish. All of the photos were taken with a Cannon AE 1, developed by hand and scanned. I use visual puns and strong compositions to explore where I fit in the city and the environment around me.
These are a smattering of posters I've created during my time at Cornish.
