As part of  Flex Design workshop I created a layout for feature article about Project Censored in Baltimore’s ‘City Paper’. Provided with  ads and copy  and I created all other components of the layout.

The “Before” posted here is my original thought process which I built my following sketches on. The current logo of the organization can be seen at their website:

I sought to change the logo of the organization City Blossoms. Their current logo is very illustrative and I wanted to take a more minimal approach when changing the identity. My intention was to create something the donors would really respond to.

After visiting the gardens it was made clear to me that their was a need for signage especially at the school, CentroNia. With that in mind I created stamps of vegetables, herbs, and fruit grown in the garden that would be used to brand plant markers. I wanted to make something that would activate excitement and curiosity within the kids as well as being an integral learning tool. They exist to be customized by the kids, decorated however they want. Being the children at the school are biingual, english and spanish appear on the materials. I want these to be things they are able to use on there own and on a regular basis.
A definite challenge initially was figuring out the best method of creating the stamp. I decided on linoleum and was pleased with my choice. Since they had to be hand carved the mark of the stamp was less rigid and clean. It really tied into the the aesthetic of the materials used by the kids being they are usually recycled or hand-crafted.

Launch was the title for the 2010 Paper Show in Baltimore hosted by the Production club of Baltimore. For the event they hoped to incorporate engaging and compelling graphics (print and interactive) that would marry together their key concepts of the word launch. Through a design workshop headed by artists representing PCB I produced works aimed at being included in the paper show, and chosen through juried vote. This  t-shirt was the chosen design to be screen-printed and distributed at the Paper show.

For one week I recorded stats about the music I listen to, broken down into relative categories. I logged the genre, artist, time of day played, along with the frequency of plays within said categories. The data is contualized through an infographic.

This poster is for The Walters Art Museum for their exhibition of Japanese Cloisonne Enamels. I created an identity system, typography within a vase form, that would be utilized for different collateral pieces. Functioning as an essential source of information, it is a folded pamphlet as well as a poster. Listed information include workshops and conferences integral to the exhibition.

Here are some stills for a game I did a while back. I chose an australian theme. You follow Burnu on this journey through terrain I intended to resemble the Outback. You collect seven precious stones for a ceremony that will bring peace and prosperity to the land.

I made a change in color choices for this business card that I previously posted.
