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 ads
I worked with Propel to create postcards and digital ads which encourage Philadelphians to sign up for food stamps. Easyfoodstamps.com is an amazing project—check it out!
StoryCorps Marketing Brochures
I worked with the Marketing Department at StoryCorps to create these brochures which encourage people to record their story with a loved one.
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 also created annual report for StoryCorps in 2013 and 2014.
Wedding Invitation Suite
For a Block Island wedding, I created a classic, simple suite ofletterpressed invitations, menus, programs, and maps.
For StoryCorps' 10th anniversary, I created infographics for digital posts and for screenprinted tote bags.
