Plume is a self initiated project which allowed me to explore patterns and textiles. The logo illustration set the tone for style and branding. I drew the patterns, had them printed on fabric and fabricated bow ties, pocket squares, scarfs as well as the packaging for this project.

Inventing in America
This gallery focuses on work I did for the National Museum of American History at the Smithsonian. The exhibit showcases notable American inventions and patents. The challenge was to bring a humanizing element to the graphics, as the exhibit content celebrated inventions and patents, not the inventors themselves. Another consideration was the space in which the exhibit content was to be displayed. The body of the exhibit is located in the 1 West Corridor of the National Museum of American History. The space was transformed to house the exhibit but still needed to function as a pathway for visitors to engage other exhibits. The graphics needed to be eye catching, but not so bold that they over shadowed the exhibit content or created congestion in the corridor. I hand drew this illustration of an iconic Edison lamp.
Initial Poster Proposal
This is one of many iterations I worked on before settling on the final graphic for the poster.

Woodtick Farms is a specialty wine producer located in Wisconsin. They are makers of honey, strawberry, raspberry and rhubarb wine, all of which have a light infusion of honey, harvested at Woodtick Farms. The client was interested in rebranding which utilized hand lettering and had a country feel. The wine, jam, and honey labels were entirely hand drawn.
This book cover was the result of a typography class project. The challenge was to create a cover that was typographically driven. I chose Balfrey, a display font, which was used on posters and ephemera during the WWII era.
This illustration served as the inspiration for the direction of the book cover. It depicts a family of Eglantine roses (Eglantine is also the name of the protagonist.) Although the story bursts with imaginative characters, talking animals, spells and magic, the real story is about the non traditional family that is formed by Miss Price, Professor Brown and the three orphaned children from London.

Downtown College Park
The following series of images depicts a branding and identity package created for Downtown College Park. The client was interested in a more current, less corporate looking, logo and identity. It was also important for them to create a distinct brand and not be viewed merely as the college district on route 1.
The second batch of images illustrates the clients desire for an increased emphasis on the downtown aspect. They also expressed an interest in gateway signage. I encouraged them to consider a signage system that tapped into the look and style of the neighborhood, charming brick sidewalks, turn of the century vintage industrial street lamps, but a system that would also look towards future growth an expansion. Gateway signage is geared more towards motorists and Downtown College Park was already establishing itself as a pedestrian friendly destination, which made it distinctly separate from the other districts of College Park.
SeeMe is a student targeted campaign designed to foster greater awareness and dialogue about diversity on UMD's campus. The University of Maryland's Student Government Association wished to give exposure to their recently formed branch, the Diversity Committee. The campaign involved months of data collection and research, via in depth student interviews, polls, questionnaires, and interactive methodology. Some of the challenges faced during this project included the limited budget (under $1,000) and time constraints. After several rounds of research, data collection, design solution and implementation, re-testing design solutions and final implementation, the client agreed that an exhibit style campus event would best serve as an introduction to UMD's student body. I was primarily responsible for the exhibit content, although this was a class project which involved the collaboration of approximately 20 students. I also created an infographic for the SGA-DC. Students who participated, by posting a selfie from the event on social media, received t-shirts and entered a chance to win campus redeemable gift cards. This project was a wonderful opportunity to utilize Graphic Design for an important cause.
