  • I was pleasantly approached by Dwell Magazine to create custom lettering for their Made In America issue, to represent the Midwest.

  • Just finished a logo design for New York representation company, Fresh Artist Management. Here’s a snippet of the system.

    Also, very happy to announce that I recently signed on to be included in roster of representation by Fresh Artists Management, for illustration and design work. Thrilled to be a part and excited to see what great work comes of it!

  • Each year the AIGA puts on Portfolio 1-on-1 in which design students come in and get their portfolios reviewed by working professionals. During the weekend, there are also workshops. I was excited to be able to co-host my second P1-on-1 workshop, along with Chank Diesel.

    Last year we held a font-making workshop. Students created letterforms from cut-paper shapes which was then made into a working font called Particulate. We also made a video to go along with, animated by Adam Tow.

    This year, the workshop was based more on process, collaboration and challenge in creating letterforms. Piles of material were provided – such as pins, tape, string, post-its, stickers, rope, wire, etc. Students were formed into groups and had to collaborate and plan out what their assigned letter would look like and with what materials they would use. When it was time to create, together they would get one minute to produce the letter on an easel while we documented the process through video.

    Our focus for the workshop was more on the creative process and planning collaboratively to create something. A process video of the students creating the letterforms will be releasing soon, which will be produced by Adam Tow.

    For now, these are some photos from the event.

    A bit more about my poster:

    TItle: Gold bicycle

    Inspired by architecture and sculpture, this poster embodies the concept of the bicycle as a sculptural and kinetic art form that transports the character and essence of our city and environment.
