Banner Design During the summer of 2010 I interned at The City Gallery at Waterfront Park where I worked as a docent and house designer. Two of their attractions this summer were Samantha Magowan and Charlie Bidwell. To create this banner I merged two of their images together. This banner was hung outside of the gallery and also turned into a poster, which was hung around downtown Charleston, SC.

Vinyl Album Design I designed this album for my Digital Page and Web Graphics Course in 2010. This album functions as a triptych.

The lid functions similarly to an old-fashioned hatbox.
