NATIONS VOL. 4

LAYOUT DESIGN

This was a collaborative effort where I worked with Dorothy Huynh to provide the layout for two articles in the making of Nations Vol. 4, 'Emissaries At The Edge' & 'Civil Righteousness'. It was great to be given the opportunity to be a small part in such a beautiful and uplifting magazine. Click the button below if you would like to learn out more about Nations Media.

CROSSFIT 12 STONES

LOGO DESIGN

A couple who recently started their own business together wanted a logo to stand apart from the typical crossfit logos that are currently out there. Not so aggressive. Strong, but neither too masculine or too feminine: well-balanced.

    A.W

    Logo Design

    This was a logo made to help brand a fellow graphic designer. Limiting myself to the use of only the letter "A", I was able to create an identity that focused on the essential elements of the letterforms.

    Knives OUT

    Screen Print

    Knives Out was a small business I started to help local artists become more established. I designed posters, shirts, logos, etc. and managed merchandise for store fronts and online shops. This shirt was designed to raise awareness of the Ukrainian-Russian conflict that is currently taking place. 20% of shirt sales were donated to HELPUA.ORG

    Just Roll With It!

    Iconography

    My friends and I hosted a monthly Dungeons & Dragons podcast. I took on the task of branding our show, and wanted our online presence to be playful and welcoming to match the style of our show. I decided to focus on using flat design with bright colors to support the atmosphere of the podcast.
