Stick It is an outdoor climbing app that provides users with information about off-the-charts outdoor climbing places. Users can view routes on a map based on their current location, add routes they’ve created to the route database, and contribute a rating and level after climbing routes. Stick It helps climbers discover outdoor climbing places created by their fellow climbers that aren't featured on websites. With the GPS and map, users can explore unknown climbing places and share their discoveries and routes with other climbers.
Longfellows is an arts and stationary shop in Massachusetts. It is named in homage to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, poet, writer and educator. Longfellows sells high-end writing and calligraphy tools as well as handmade stationary.
This is the branding project I completed for Longfellows. Their new identity reflects the beauty of hand skills, yet remains professional and high-end.
Seeds is a hypothetical earth inspired art festival conceptualized and designed by me and a partner. The festival takes place in a different big city each year, although this year's website is specifically for the Seattle festival. Seeds features local, national and international artists, music, performers, art walks, environmental exhibits, workshops and a art area for kids.
The website encompasses the organic and creative vibe of the festival while allowing users to view upcoming activities, pre-order tickets and see the three day schedule. Due to its responsive layout, users can browse the site on their iPad or iPhone
This website is designed for the hypothetical client Farm to Table, a restaurant in Vail, Colorado. Users can view the mission statement, read about the history of the restaurant, view the special of the week, make reservations and read about the chef and dining atmosphere. The website aesthetically and verbally communicates the organic, locally-grown, carefully crafted and richly flavorful focus of the restaurant.
This is a collection of spreads on the topic of the Turkey Vulture for the hypothetical scientific magazine, Hypothesis. I completed three variations catered to different audience profiles: a professor, a student doing research and a middle-aged mom looking to further her knowledge.
This opening spread and continuation spread were the final chosen spreads for the magazine. The two spreads that follow are catered towards the student and the mom, respectively.
These layouts began with a confusing chart I found in a textbook. I redesigned the chart and in a more effective layout and added a headline, body text and image. These layouts were the two variations I submitted. Beneath the two designs is the original textbook chart.
I have always been fascinated by birds. In this project, I captured the freedom of flight in a whimsical and storybook-like way. This series is a three part illustration of Leonardo DaVinci's quote that reads, "For once you have tasted flight you walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will return”. Each compositions is a combination of digital drawings, texture scans, images and typography.
This adorable Sasquatch was originally printed on a card for the collaborative Washington themed booklet. After the production of the booklet, I added the type and background to make it a poster that can stand apart from the booklet.
Faculty Appreciation Dinner Invitations
I designed these formal dinner invitations for the Annual Campus Christian Fellowship Faculty Appreciation Dinner. The invitations reflect the elegant yet comfortable after-work dinner party hosted by the CCF community in honor of the WWU faculty.
