All Projects

Ugly Crows

LCreated for Scott Zukowski’s Image Making class, this project involved creating a set of 12 images of a single animal inspired by a particular style or technique. I referenced Robert Crumb, Ralph Steadman, and Chloe Cushman to create a collection of Ugly Crows.

Symbols Zine

The Symbols Project encompassed the creation of over 100 symbols with the purpose of developing conceptual understanding and technical abilities to make meaning with images. I chose a giant squid and my symbols were based on the words: Giant, Fast, Amorphous, Camouflage and Aquatic. This zine explains the methodologies I created to develop my final symbols.

Type Publication

For my Publication Project for Type II, I researched typography used in built environments. I split up my magazine into three sections: type for exhibitions and installations, signage and identity, and architecture.

Ugly Crows

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
