"Moments" is a journal or yearly planner that is navigated by the measurements of moments, which in the medieval times was defined as 40 moments per hour and, or 960 moments in a day. This publication to meant for the user to start appreciating all of life's precious moments, no matter how small. Each month is introduced by a quote pertaining to life moments, and a picture of a moment that one may often take for granted. Following that are two more images, one half way through the month and another at the end. These images are on vellum and a natural card stock. The days are numbered by the moments that have passed and equal to 348,480 at the end of the year.
This project was a part of my Publication Design studio. By taking J.Crews 2015 financial report and images from their 2017 collections I designed a 56 page annual report that could be distributed to employees and customers. My aim was to create a publication that maintains J.Crews existing visual language and also keep it simple and contemporary. I wanted to brake J.Crews stereotype of "preppy-ness" and make it personable to all demographics. I added persona's to all models so the audience could connect more with the brand and its versatile personality.
DKOR is a aesthetically pleasing packaging solution for office supplies. These cement containers with wooden lids (engraved & painted) are meant to house your office supplies and once the supplies are used you can either refill them or reuse them for other knickknacks. Most office supplies come in cheap acrylic containers that one usually does not want to display on their desk. Which is why I created DKOR, desk decor. The magnet on the underside of the lid is a functional aspect to help grab your supplies. The purchase packaging is a transparent paper stating quantity secured by a color tab with an illustration of the supply inside. These are removed after use and the colored tab correlates with the interior color of the container.
This is a zine I made that gives a glimpse of my personality - this piece may not be the most portfolio worthy but hopefully a few laughs! It is called Real Housewives and takes quotes from the reality TV shows "Real Housewives of ..." and combines them with fitting pictures of housewives from the 50's. This piece was not as easy as it looks though as the use of a computer and printer was prohibited. This zine was made using hand cut magazine letters and words, a photocopier, and scissors and tape. The images were photocopied from library books.
During Summer 2016 I completed an internship with Charleston Magazine (under Gulfstream Communications), based in Charleston, SC doing photography and graphic design work. While predominately working on Charleston Magazine, I also contributed to Charleston Weddings, WNC, Grandstand, and House Calls. The spreads and pages you see below feature photos I photographed, sourced, and or edited as well as contributed to layout design.
As part of my typographic design studio, I was assigned to create a product that cannot function without type (ex. calendar, deck of cards, planner). I chose to make a 12 month calendar reflecting a girly, sophisticated, and charming personality. You can find my mood board inspiration at the bottom of the gallery. The decorative leaf ornaments are illustrated and watercolored by myself. All layouts have been designed from scratch. 6 quotes throughout the planner are featured on transparent paper. Planner was perfect bound and then wrapped in white leather, with a pink cardstock lining, all bound by myself. The planner is named "Me, Myself, and I" as it focuses on setting goals and bettering yourself.
