Custom wordmark and icon design for a local Charleston business where real food meets real fitness. The script development was a great challenge, with some iterations looking a little too metal/ rock band - esque and some looking too soft. I'm very pleased with the result and the geometric icons that provide a nice contrast.

The Jewish Community Center of Pittsburgh is an inclusive environment for people of all ages to enjoy a variety of community activities. For their fall digital program guide they reached out to me to illustrate an animation! I was of course thrilled at the opportunity and as an extra bonus I got to collaborate with fellow Charlestonian David Stanfield who did a fantastic job animating everything from the characters to the scene transitions and all of the subtle touches in between. Combined with the sound design of Isaac Levine that really makes the finished piece come to life and art direction by Todd Smith of the JCC, this was a really awesome project that I couldn't be more proud of.
Illustrations created for ProStart to teach student chefs proper etiquette. This was incredibly fun to work on! I sketched every single page, sometimes presenting multiple concepts, before creating the final composition.

This is a tribute to some awesome family history printed by the Newspaper Club. I had a lot of fun delving into the past and creating some baller icons and lettering for this breaking old news newspaper!
When my grandmother died we found all of these letters that started with "My dear sweetie..." from my grandfather to her while on his trip to (drumroll) - CUBA! From New York! Read the full story (so far!) here, and read one of the adorable letters from my grandfather to my grandmother!
Commune. is a local dinner series that pairs super fresh food with unique dining locations - like eating on the boat that literally just caught your dinner. I was asked to illustrate a number of icons that worked in a modular system with the brand identity. This was quite a fun - and delicious! - project to be a part of!

Every now and then I get the itch for a personal project, and there's nothing more inspiring than walking around the city I call home. Putting my wanderings to paper I created this travel guide for Charleston.
I love my adopted city so much, and I hope this gives you a taste of what Charleston has to offer.
Trust me, it's delicious!
Lazy Supply Co. is my side venture selling pins, prints, and patches! Designing for yourself is a blessing and a curse, as always! I'm pleased to have an outlet for all my bold rainbows, for now of course :)

Some kicked lettering for a music festival but I loved it too much to let go! As an aside, how many gifs are too many gifs on one page? This project also afforded me the opportunity to justify buying this awesome book - The Do-It Yourself Lettering Book
New brand assets for a local band around town. Especially loved playing with style and texture in these elements.

These nature signs were commissioned by Sea Colony Resort in order to create more awareness about the wildlife found in the DelMarVa area.
Frankenstein movie poster created by photographing letters cut out of raw meat. To create the necrotic effect I added drops of hot sauce and let the meat sit out in room temperature under hot lights for about 3 hours. And no, I did not cook and eat the letters afterward :)
This identity for South Carolina's official Restaurant Week needed to be extremely flexible and recognizable across banner ads and billboards. Everything in between was a delight to design, especially the stickers that participating restaurants put in their windows.
To address those challenges we created a system of distinct illustrations that covered everything from meat, to fish, to salt & pepper. Using a limited color palette also unified the system and made it easy to spot around town.
