museum of immortality

Vampires & Werewolves & Ghosts & Dragons! The Museum of Immortality uses the ampersand as a conjuction to construct the frame logo. Very appropriate for a museum, as they commonly frame artworks, but keeping the center of the frame empty & ominous to keep the mystery and maintain the idea of the unkown being scary.

jello magazine

With 6 weeks to create a Broadsheet magazine,
I was instructed to find a subject to work with that
I can use to demonstrate fluency with typesetting, image relationships, and complex layered elements. After doing some research, I came across many articles, recipes, and even fashion inspired by
Jell-O! While learning a lot about the history of the gelatin dessert, I was challenged to utilize a much larger page that I had worked with before, as well
as finding a way to bring through the movement and enjoyment that comes with Jello. The project was very fun in the end to assemble together and showcase to my peers!

*None of the articles or images belong to me and all credit is given in the publication.*

if cards

What if we used our imagination more when having conversations about social issues that impact all of us? I was challenged to find a way to combine seriousness and play. I wanted to design bite-sized ‘what if…?’ statements to spark friendly conversation about important political issues in a way that incites using the imagination to think about what the future might look like based on the political decisions we make.
