Work

All About Coffee

Spring 2010

SYPNOSIS

I wanted to break away from the traditional infographic and create an interactive design that a viewer would have to look through. I settled on creating a table top scattered with imagery and facts. The text is placed to subtly organize the information.

PROCESS

This project included a lot of vector work and coffee shop visits for reference.

Photoshop, Illustrator

Moulin Rouge

Summer 2010

SYPNOSIS

This is a digital collage I made to test my photography lighting skills. It was also the final project in my digital photography class.

PROCESS

I recreated the lighting of one of my favorite Henri de Toulouse-Latrec paintings At the Moulin Rouge, and photographed my beautiful friend Amanda, to composite this collage. Thanks Amanda!

Francis Fox

Spring 2010

SYPNOSIS

Francis Fox, a local sculptor and professor at Boise State, commissioned me to build his website and create his brand.

PROCESS

After reviewing several logo ideas, Francis and I settled on a simple and bold logo. We agreed that white, black, red were the most effective colors to represent his identity. We continued these colors on his website which contrasts nicely with his photographed work.

Genius Book

Fall 2010

SYPNOSIS

Genius is a conceptual class project, where the prompt was to take something precious in our lives and put it in a ‘vehicle’. I decided to take an aesthetics paper I wrote in philosophy, and make it more accessible and fun to read in a pop up book!

PROCESS

I did my best to shorten my twenty two page paper into a concise reading on what makes a genius. I even bought a few pop up books. Overall, one of the most difficult but rewarding projects to date.

Tunnel of Oppression

Fall 2011

SYPNOSIS

The Tunnel of Oppression was my first committee project, and I worked with the Multicultural Center at Boise State. The Tunnel of Oppression is an annual event held on campus where students go through a tunnel of reenactments depicting oppressive scenarios. The colors are always limited to black and white.

PROCESS

To capture the emotion of oppression, I made aggressive brush marks and evocative silhouettes to create a tunnel /grave-like form.

INPC promotions

Spring 2011

SYPNOSIS

These materials were designed for the 2011 Inland Northwest Philosophy Conference held by Boise State’s Philosophy Department. The department wanted something comic book inspired to move away from the traditional old faces often associated with philosophy. The conference title was Aristotelian Themes in Contemporary Metaphysics.

PROCESS

The department chair traced a picture of Aristotle’s bust in our first meeting, and I eventually carried his idea into the final branding mark.

Student Org Fair

Spring 2012

SYPNOSIS

This material was designed for the Student Involvment and Leadership Center at Boise State University this spring. They enjoyed my previous Bronco Block Party design and requested a similar look.

PROCESS

I vectorized provided imagery and texturized the background in photoshop. I referenced old fair posters and signage to create the final shield.

Spring 2010 - current *in progress

SYPNOSIS

This box set contains three feature stop-motion films directed by Henry Selick. Each design features hand made elements against custom illustrations to recreate the edgy and eerie themes amongst the three films.

PROCESS

All logos and illustrations were drawn and created by myself. Pictured is the dvd mock up for Coraline (cover and interionr) and original sketches. Wallpaper textures were borrowed the film website. This project will be published on my behance profile in the near future.
