This is a logo that I designed for URMIA Risk Management conference which is being held in Minneapolis summer of 2015. I wanted to represent Minnesota by creating a reflection of the city and Minnesota’s famous north woods.
MCAD Continuing Education
The CE Mailer I designed was to promote the Continuing Education classes at Minneapolis College of Art and Design. In making this postcard I learned how to follow strict branding guidelines, making sure that the logo never went smaller than 20% and using MCAD’s strict color and typography style guide. In production I used a spot UV varnish on the circles to enhance the design.
MCAD M/lab Invitations
This is a set of invitations I designed celebrating MCAD’s new M/Lab construction, inviting donors to have the first new look at MCAD’s new renovation
MCAD Letter Press
This is a promotional project I designed for the design department at Minneapolis College of Art and Design. I used the MCAD intersection and created a pattern that would connect to the back of the card. This was an opportunity to work with Studio On Fire to learn about letterpress and experiment with overprinting
Public Radio International Annual Summer CD
This is a CD case I designed for Public Radio International. PRI sends out annual summer CDs with their show as a thank you for all the people that donated to the radio station. The theme was based on conversations from around the world. I used imagery that reflected each track that ended with PRI’s tag line “Hear a different voice.“
Public Radio International
I designed a postcard for PRI’s radio show The Take Away. PRI wanted to thank their listeners for participating in sending in photos of their radios. I ended up using the actual photos that the listeners submitted and tiled them in a pattern.
Wealth in America
I designed an information graphic about the wealth distribution in America. I wanted to visually show the vast inequalities between each class. I choose to create a repeating pattern to emphasize and isolate each quadrant so that the viewer could easily read and understand the information provided.
Public Art Review Magazine
This is a spread I designed in the Public Art Review magazine. I added structural forms throughout the spread to reflect the story which was about public housing.
I started this project by just collecting and creating different forms by scanning and photographing office materials. I then collaged them by hand and created a poster for an MIT event called Dark Machines that showcased photography of dangerous equipment at MIT.
The calendar system set I created is a book and a poster that is for users who want to fill in their own content. The calendar book is designed to be more personal, each day is displayed on a page for users that like to record events. The calendar poster is designed to be less personal. For example the poster could be used in an office setting for everyone to view. The poster has a space for little note reminders that are written underneath the months. I designed this system that could also be used internationally, there are no holidays included so that the user can add their own content.
Cubet was the product of a prototype class that I took at Minneapolis College of Art and Design. The goal was to create a product that was designed for Generation Y that could be flat packed and inspired by origami. I collaborated with three other teammates, two of which where furniture designers and the other an advertising major. Together we developed and created a working prototype for 3M.
Through a long concept process we decided on making an acrylic cube that can attach magnetically to metal squares that are then attached to your wall by using 3M’s Command wall adhesive technology. This prototype provided low voltage LED lighting that could be recharged using a docking station, making this system ideal for an environmentally conscious generation Y our hypothetical consumer.
