While I was in the post-Bacc program at MICA, I learned how to screenprint. Screenprinting posters was a great introduction to both craft and communication. Poster design, similar to book cover design, is so much about conveying a complex idea with minimal type and imagery that sets just the right tone.
Leading up to StoryCorps' Great Thanksgiving Listen, I created ten typographic squares to generate interest in the project and encourage students to ask their elders questions that they'd never asked before. I often create images for social media and this is a favorite series of mine. These were posted on facebook, twitter, and instagram.
Easy Food Stamps postcards
I worked with Propel to create these postcards which encourage Philadelphians to sign up for food stamps. Along with the design, I also shot the photo for this postcard. Easyfoodstamps.com is an amazing project—check it out!
I've worked on 6 books (novels, poetry collections, and short story collections) with Bridle Path Press, including Stone Harbor Boundby Madeleine Mysko. I work with the authors and editors tolayout the interiors, create covers, and format the books for print and kindle.
In this Chance/ Choice themed exhibit, heat-sensitive paint obscures one word in each line of W.S. Merwin’s poem "Separation." Heat from the viewers’ hands reveal the missing words and their synonyms. The piece is a visual representation of how we choose words from our personal vocabulary banks.
I worked in an art direction role with illustrator, Isaac Kestenbaum, to create these promotional postcards for StoryCorps' fifth book, Callings.
Wedding Invitation Suite
For a Block Island wedding, I created a classic, simple suite ofletterpressed invitations, menus, programs, and maps.
