Viewbook Numerals

Interestingly, our team for the Viewbook project reached out to my Type Design class to create a set of numbers to be integrated into the alumni book we are designing. So while also working on the project, I was also designing in class for it. Work really follows me around!

Homeless BBQ Mobile/Web Interface

This project was to select a non profit organization that would benefit from a smart user interface experience. Elevate Detroit is an organization comprised of young adults who have a passion and heart for the homeless in the city. The main functionalities of this system are to directly connect those involved with this ministry to each other, while also leading up to and documenting the experience, as well as making it easy to receive information and share between the user's mobile devices and Elevate's main outlet which is Facebook.

A book series on diversity

This is a series of three small books on cultural, genetic and personal diversity. The theme was on the word ‘hybrid’ which was selected at random and then transformed into three visual directions based on a scientific article, a piece of short fiction and my own personal story. I speak on plant and cultural hybridization which eventually combine to show how diversity is positive and is embraced in community through the use of color, type, grid structure and illustration to represent the mergence of these ideas.

As a side note, the coptic binding style was the most challenging method I've encountered. I've never bound a book the same way twice and this was my first all-nighter hand stitching.
