Shorebreak is a fictional surf brand, sold in local surf and skate shops. The company decided to gather their best selling and most essential beach day items into a single and convenient tote, perfect for a long day of surfing, or just hanging out.
"Support Your Local Girl Gang" is poster created with the intention of raising awareness regarding the violence against women in India and a group of women aiming to ameliorate the situation. The Gulabi Gang is a group of women dedicated to rescuing child-brides and victims of abuse, education, and self-defense. For this poster I drew inspiration from the beautiful, delicate patterning on traditional wedding fabric and juxtaposed it with the abrasive aggression of graffiti.
Starry-Eyed is a fictional cosmetics line geared towards young women age 17-28, ideally sold at Sephora, Ulta, and department store beauty counters. Each seperate product revolves around a different constellation (Andromeda Liquid Eyeliner, Cassiopeia’s Waterproof Mascara, Noctua Eyeshadow Palette, etc). The company tagline “You are stardust.” is pulled from a quote by physicist Lawrence Krauss.
"Take Me To Your Dealer," a comic I created for my Sequential Narrative final. For this project, I created the plot, story board, illustrations, everything. I thoroughly enjoyed the freedom and creativity I was able to employ for this project, and utilized that freedom with the quirky and off-beat subject matter.
Over the summer, I was contacted to aid in the creation of a menu for Baker’s Crust, a restaurant in Virginia Beach. Given a set of vague guidelines- “incorporate social media,” “use earth tones but make them vibrant,” etc.,- and an overabundance of menu items, I developed this menu.
Told to create a continuation of a project from earlier in the semester, this website is the second volume of my zine from Intermediate Graphic Design II. Theoretically featuring the submitted art, poetry, and playlists of it’s readers, my aim is to create a space for girls to find inspiration and encouragement. Though I cannot consider myself a coder by any means, I am proud to have come as far as I have in my web design class, and reasonably satisfied with this site given my coding competency level.
Creating this zine was a joy. As the first project for Intermediate Graphic Design II, I was initially rusty and overwhelmed with too many concepts. However, I finally drew from what I personally am interested in- stickers, girl-centric art, and making lists. It is intended for circulation among other girls looking for a little inspiration, creativity, and empowerment.
(All art used was cited on the last page of the zine itself, as well as my process book. No money was made off of this and was purely for education purposes.)
Created Fall 2013 for Intermediate Graphic Design II.
For this assignment, we were to choose a word out of a hat, then pick a related song. I drew “birth” and knew immediately what song to choose. “First Day of My Life” by Bright Eyes provided a fitting and stimulating theme, supplying a serenely eerie inspiration. Drawing upon multiple plays on “birth,” everything has meaning, from the sunrise to the sea.
