Roald Dahl's books were an important part of my childhood: they sparked my imagination, entertained me, and shaped my dreams and desires.

Fleet Foxes CD Packaging
A redesign of the Fleet Foxes' self-titled album. The group's music is powerful, yet the lyrics and character of the song is sensitive and delicate, which reminds me of the nature of a deer. The design features found illustrations, hand-made watercolor textures, and original typography.

ABM Print Campaign
The Caprola Squad, an advertising agency in St. Louis, MO, asked me to design publications for its client, ABM. In 2013, ABM, or the American Building Maintenance Company, launched a point-based discount parking lot program for patrons who park in the parking lots it manages.
ABM's new campaign had to speak to two target groups: customers and parking lot managers. Parking lot managers needed to be introduced to the program as well as learn about how to serve customers. Customers needed accessible materials that help them learn about how to save money while parking in ABM's parking lots.
I designed a booklet with a removable poster, trifold brochures, large posters, pins, and several two-sided brochures. I was also responsible for writing most of the copy for the printed materials.
Two-sided promotional brochures for customers.
Promotional buttons, 1-inch and 2-inch, intended to be worn by parking lot workers.

This hand-drawn poster advertises a punk show at The Aquadome, Kirksville’s independent student-run entertainment and arts venue. The Aquadome is dedicated to entertain students in a unique and often eccentric way. When I was asked to design this poster, I kept the independent spirit of the Aquadome in mind. This poster was hand-painted using brushes, bamboo pens, and india ink.
Locks of Love Rebranding
Often, charitable organizations lack the financial resources to develop an effective visual identity and branding strategy. I chose to rebrand Locks of Love is a charity that provides wigs made out of donated hair to young people who have lost their hair because of medical treatment and disease.
The design is friendly, feminine, caring, and promising. It provides a sense of balance, normalcy, and care, something every young patient needs. You can learn more about Locks of Love on their website.
While at Truman State University, I have designed posters for various campus organizations, including KTRM, Truman's award-winning student radio station. This poster promotes the radio station to students on campus. I wanted the poster to be informative, eye-catching, and intricate - something students would want to rip off the walls for their own.
HAIM all the Time
Had fun putting together this one! This vector portrait series was created using customized calligraphic brush settings in Illustrator with the aid of a Wacom tablet.

Art Gala Poster Series
To promote an on-campus art show, I designed a series of three posters that would encourage all creative people to consider submitting their artwork. The design of the poster is dynamic and eye catching, bold and brutal. Ultimately, I wanted my audience to understand that sharing artistic talent is good for the development of the self and the culture of a community.
A fun personal project I put together over the course of a few days while at home for winter break.
Toucans! Okapis! And jaguars! Oh my! Created this fun self promotional desktop wallpaper series. You can download the series here.
