Vectorform          Despite Vectorform’s high technology focus, I have always been a
                    fan of the vintage and handmade aestetics. Taking cue from my own
2009 Holiday Card   interests I created this email holiday card for the company which
                    was sent out to various clients as well as internally. The focus of the

                 school, to design her business and appointment cards. Working
Business Cards   with the idea that her job revolves around the adjustment of bones, I
                 chose to go super literal. From there I collected images of Halloween
                 skeletons and collageds and layered the bones. To avoid making it
                 look too spooky and make it a bit more soothing, we went with the
                 baby blue for the color.

Skate Stadium     A concept designed to revitalize the area occupied by the former
                  Tiger Stadium before it was torn down, Skate Stadium was an idea
Identity System   to turn a large unused parking lot at the corner of Michigan and
                  Trumble into a skate park. This would help bring people to the area
                  who might not usually come to the Corktown neighborhood of
                  Detroit and help redevelop the area. The identity of the park was
                  designed with the heritage of the area in mind, using the image of
                  the tiger and also referencing its close proximity to the expressway
                  with bright colors and diagonal lines to represent street signage.

Personal Project   One day while drinking out of the plain white coffee cups at the coffee
                   shop that was downstairs from my studio, I realized that the lids of
35 Coffee Cups     the cups kind of looked like hats. From that point on I drew a new face
                   on every coffee cup I got for a little over a month. What I ended up
                   with was a whole wall of 35 different cups at my desk at work.
