I had the pleasure of working with Make-A-Wish America as their Graphic Design Intern during Summer 2018. I designed a variety of print and digital projects that help tell the non-profit’s powerful story and mission.
I explored my childhood fascination with drums by translating percussive sounds visually.
Working with Moiré patterns, I created sequences that show how a specific sound evolves over 10 distinct stages.
Pioneers of Modern Typography
Book cover design for Pioneers of Modern Typography by Herbert Spencer.
After settling on a main direction, I explored possibilities working with rules, fields, and color.
This information graphic explores the Japanese concept of Karoshi (death by overwork) and its connection to population decline. The first two spreads show one solution, while the second set show a denser, more editorial layout.
Note: The text used in the second set of spreads is taken from several different news sources.
My task for this project was to design an innovative symbol combining a randomly assigned letter and number.
Once the symbol was designed, I created a fictitious company name that connected the norms of my chosen industry to the look and feel of the symbol.

A typographic business system for my academic and personal use.
I had the pleasure of designing convocation documents for several of Arizona State University's Student Coalitions.
Final Review Poster
I was asked to design a poster announcing my cohort’s final review.
The solution had to be typography based with no additional images or illustrations.

Leaf Gradation Study
While working with found leaves I gained an understanding in the areas of hue and value within color.
After collecting hundreds of leaves around Arizona (not the easiest thing to find in the desert) I began to organize my findings by hue and value.
Eventually, I settled on making a double radial gradient for my final composition.

This project helped me continue to gain sensitivity in letterform design with lowercase letters. Starting with an uppercase "H", I made the letters necessary to write the word "ground."
All letters were first drawn with graphite, then painted and later, after many adjustments, digitized in Adobe Illustrator.
