With AIGA SC: Charleston I created the identity design for Design Graveyard, an event to celebrate the untimely death of well loved logos. We created a series of illustrated skulls and skeleton hands along with a completely custom display typeface to use on everything from social media posts to event signage. It was a really awesome evening spent admiring all the lost souls from the design community. We were also able have Moo sponsor a print run of our designs on their letterhead and turn those into a huge banner, table top decorations, and party favors! It was a delightful night all around.

I love living in Charleston! The Holy City has so much to offer and I started this self-initiated project to especially highlight all of the places that make this a really vibrant and bright city. Featuring colorful illustrations and catchy typography, I wanted this guide to delight visitors and locals alike.

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.
Good Eats & Treats is a collaborative iMessage sticker pack illustrated, animated, and designed by Sarah Ferone and I. Plan your good eats and fresh treats through fun phrases and images to help you decide what’s for dinner, what to pick up at the store, and even what to do when you don’t feel like cooking (pizza night anyone?). These charming stickers will spice up even the sweetest recipe list.
This was such a fun project to work on! We have additional sticker updates planned and I'm so excited to see where this project goes next.
Also, I drew every single letter that appears in this pack! The text face shown is the one I designed while at Type@Cooper.
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 :)
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!
Custom wordmark and icon design for a local Charleston business where real food meets real fitness. We wanted the brand to feel as energetic and authentic as the business itself. I'm very pleased with the result and the geometric icons that provide a nice contrast to the organic forms of the lettering.

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.

Cedar Rowe Partners is an investment advisory firm located in Atlanta, GA. Once we had developed a direction of focusing on the tree, I experimented a lot with classic ink and brush to emulate the same attention to detail that they give their clients. We were also able to create icons and design a refined website that reflected their brand values as tailored as their work.

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.
