The client hired me to redesign his logo for his recording studio. My solution was to simplify the original logo and draw attention to elements that were the most important to the TRU.Family brand. I decided to make the shield and crown the focal point of the solution. I placed the word "Brotherhood" at the bottom because it is the foundation of TRU.Family and placed "Truth" and "Honor" because they are above all else. I slanted the ends of the T and F to suggest forward, positive movement.
The Helix Magazine is a student run literary and art magazine at Central Connecticut State University. The magazine is known across the United States. It accepts submissions not only from students, but writers and artists around the world. My challenge was to bring the magazine up to professional standards in terms of design while still maintaining an edgy underground feel.
The Central Activities Network at Central Connecticut State University wanted a poster and accompanying invitation created for their annual semi formal dance called the Snoball. The the theme of the dance was 1920’s and “Great Gatsby” based. My solution emphasized art deco design elements of the era.
The Green Team Initiative is an organization educatin the public on as well as promoting the use of alternative sources of energy. The organization requested something fresh, youthful, and trendy. They wanted something that was eye-catching and attract a younger audience. I chose a blue and green color scheme to go along with the ideas and concepts they are promoting.
Java Mama Coffee Company came to me for a logo design as well as package design for their line of coffee. The client wanted each flavor represented by its own color to easily differentiate them. The target market of the brand are women mid twenties to early forties that follow trends and enjoy the morning cups coffee. That information influenced my solution for the shape of the package. The packages are short and purse shaped to help attract their desired consumer.
This portfolio piece was an independent project for my third year graphic design course. The objective of the assignment was to create a book exemplifying everything we had learned so far in our design education. I decided to create a graphic design style manual focusing on the elements and principles. When it came to design I reallly wanted to display my appreciation for Swiss Design. Simplicity and elegance are key for me. I took an ambitious route and hand-bound the hardcover book. As for the copy, I wrote that myself as well. This book, from to content, to design, to creation embodied everything I had learned.
