A brochure I designed and had printed while completing an internship at the Convention and Visitors Bureau of Portland Maine. This brochure highlights many shops and restaurants in downtown Portland and was given to visitors as a guide of sorts.
I was very involved in this project having to travel around to all these businesses to see if they wanted in on a 10% off deal that patrons would have if they showed this brochure.
A poster designed to promote a show by the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra.
I chose to use vibrant colors to convey the emotion that come out during a orchestra performance.
During my time at Boston Magazine I had the chance to design the employee newsletter. It was a monthly printout, few page booklet created by some of the interns at the Magazine, copy done by the marketing intern team and the design and layout by me. Designed to be fun and easily digestible, while informative. It highlighted up-coming events, employee birthdays/anniversaries, and had a few fun sections that vary per month.
A typeface designed by me, called Amy Winehouse. Included with 3 examples of subject sheets.
I chose to keep x-height low and the weight thin. The subject sheets I chose to keep 3 colored and create two intricate patterns that show off the possibilities of the fonts curves and forms.
A poster I designed while on internship at Boston Magazine for a food event. It was used for email blasts as well as well as at the event itself.
An interactive portfolio book I designed, printed, and put together myself to supplement this portfolio site to bring and show off my creativity. It features some work that is not on this site.
I inserted children's book like "pop-out's" to give it an interactive quality as well as show off my work in a bigger size.
It was featured on a blog dedicated to design portfolios No Plastic Sleeves.
I had the privilege to do some design work for some great friends of mine who have set off on a musical journey together. The duo calls themselves Now For Ages, and they asked me to create a logo as well as some cover art for two singles off an upcoming Ep.
During the sketching process water and nature was a reoccurring theme, I tried to explore, as well as trying to create various patterns, but didn't manage to find any that were interesting enough to run with.
As a fun project/exersize, I decided to reimagine moder-day companies' logos as if they around years ago.
I chose two companies, Apple Computers, and the app Tinder.
I designed them both to have a woodcut/illustrated aesthetic.
Inspired by the work of Jessica Hische, for 26 days made a single letter used for a drop cap. I tried not to repeat anything too much in order to get a diverse set of characters
A poster I designed for a model UN team representing the country of Portugal.
Many posters were produced for the conference. All printed in 24x36 inches, this one dealt with the idea of information technology and cybersecurity.
The blue circle and white i is the international symbol for information, and the binary in the background refers to the the threat of cyber crime which is done online and with computers, as well as ads texture to the poster.
I chose to include some preliminary sketches so you can try to follow my thought process.
Given the task to illustrate a quote or phrase only using the words and letters found in it.
I chose the clasic passage from the first Apple tv commercials.
Watch the original and inspiring one here.
A typograpic self portrait made in 2012.
I decided to depict the two extremes of existance, LIFE and DEATH.
I spelled out the 4 letters in life and the 5 in death by hand, scanned them into illustrator, and repeated them along both sides of my face.
And incase you were wondering...I had longer hair at one point.
A promotional piece I designed and printed which features my logo slapped on some recognizable faces as well as my contact info on the back.
The intention was for these postcards to be sent out to potential employers to get my name out there, also intended to be fun and memorable.
PS. If you have any ideas for more people to slap my logo on shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and maybe you will see one!
A movie poster for Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown. This was done in a minimalistic style, which I've been into recently.
A subject sheet I designed and organized for the famous Baskerville typeface, showing the full capabilities of it and its variations.
I chose to keep it in a black and white color palate to keep it simple and keep the focus on the letter forms. The subject sheet I made into a pattern by repeating the letter V, replicating the type of effect that happens when two mirrors face each other. The pattern shows off the sharp angles Baskerville is known for.
I like to redesign some of my favorite albums for fun, this one for Boston's self titled album.
