About Me

Art is in everything we do and see in our lives, whether it is human made or produced in nature. Art and design have always inspired me and I have been an avid creator since I was very young. I became a graphic designer to work to bring clients’ vision to reality. Design is essential to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the messages we share. I begin my process with a loose concept that continues to shape and mold it until it clearly represents the feelings and ideas behind the design. After the first draft is approved by the client, the editing process begins as I take away the unnecessary parts of the design or add to it until it fits their needs. I am a well rounded designer who actively explores various design opportunities that give me the chance to work on different types of projects to enhance my skills and abilities.

Pronouns:
Respect Them

PSA Poster Series


Graphic Design I | Fall 2018

This is a poster series of a public service announcement about respecting pronouns and gender identity. This PSA series is meant to help start the education process and act as a stepping stone for people who want to learn more about gender expression. A set of three posters cover the most commonly used pronouns; she/her/hers, he/him/his, and they/them/theirs. Each poster uses colors that are stereotypically assigned to specific genders, pink for feminine identities, blue for masculine identities, and green for gender neutral identities. Using a sans serif font to help send a clear, straightforward message such as the different ways that individuals use pronouns to express themselves in our society.

Letter History: Just in Time

Poster Series


Typograpy | Spring 2019

This poster series is an exploration of the evolution between the letters i and j. J was the last letter to be officially added to the English alphabet. The bright red used in these posters evokes a sense of urgency and high energy. The angles throughout the posters add on to that urgency and provide a forward motion that represent the divergence of the letters i and j. Hierarchy is also used to further emphasize the shift and changes that occur over time as i evolves into j. The final poster also uses this angle to represent a finish line, as the letter j is fully recognized as its own individual letter.
