WHAT I BUILD, I AM

As the daughter of an architect and furniture maker I grew up tinkering around a wood shop from a young age. Whether it was for a school project or something that I had dreamt up on my own, I was taught that all ideas were valuable and worth experimenting with. In addition to shop safety my dad showed me that the process of creating was just as important as the final product and should be treated with the same care. All of these lessons have stayed with me and continue to influence the way I work and the way in which I see design. I have always been very handson in the design process, from initial sketches to the production stage. I pride myself on my interest in a variety of techniques and skills. Knowing my way around a wood shop has helped me more than I ever thought it could, but ultimately what has impacted me the most is the way I was taught to see a problem and solve for it in a creative way. Please enjoy my work and the portfolio that I have built.

RY UCTION N o. 01

BUILDING A 100-POINT WORD

The goal in this project was to recreate packaging for an existing board game. Whether it was a collector or anniversary edition, the packaging needed to be compelling and show a new direction for the company. Inspired by vintage, handmade games, my goal was to bring a nostalgic quality to the Scrabble lover. There is a good amount of planning and craftsmanship that goes into building a game like this, not to mention patience. Laser burning into the wood and leather was a way of using a modern version of an old technique to get a similar result. My favorite thing about this project is that the care shown by handcrafting and laser etching the box mirrors the love and affinity people have for family board games.

NER LATION N o. 02

BUILDING CONTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE

Shipping container architecture is a new trend that has not only been used around the world but is also a creative way to recycle unwanted containers. For this project the objective was to research an eco friendly topic and construct an e-newsletter based on the findings. As a graphic designer I am always drawing inspiration from other forms of design, including architecture, industrial design and interior design just to name a few. I used this project as an opportunity to expand my knowledge on

new

technologies

and

ways

of

combining

environmentally conscious living with structure and building materials. There is an architectural theme to the design and I made an easy to understand infographic to show the economic advantages as well.

BUILDING A COLOR CODE

Finch Paper Co. is located in Glen Falls, New York where they own and operate their own forest at the base of the Adirondacks. The forest is there to supply the paper mill with sustainable and well treated wood to keep the mill going strong. The respect that this company has for the forests and wildlife around them shows in the way they give back and keep new generations of plants and animals alive and thriving. I wanted to communicate the pure practices and beauty of the environment this mill sustains by using fresh colors and a bold type system. This company uses no frills or tricks to cover anything up. Instead they pride themselves on an eco friendly system and superior product. The identity demonstrates all of what they stand for with its regal pose and beautiful color.

BUILDING AN APPETITE FOR DESIGN

For this project the goal was to repackage or create a fresh design for a delicatessen of our choice. I chose

to create a fictional deli from Portland, Oregon that used sustainable and healthy practices in harvesting their products. With a farm located outside the city, Woodstock Deli raises and butchers their own livestock for a fresh and local product. I chose a signature color for the deli to build their brand from and used creative typography and icons to easily display labels and an array of packages. Growing up in Portland, I was taught early on that it’s important to know where your food comes from, so I made sure every package explained the history and process of making the product. With easy to understand type and stickers, this place could easily be a reliable and friendly neighborhood deli.

BUILDING A CONFECTIONER’S COMPANION

Roland sugar is a product of Mauritius, an island nation off the southeast coast of the African continent in the southwest Indian Ocean. Sugar has been produced here for over 300 years and is commonly known as some of the highest of quality around the world. The island used to be governed by the English but was made an official democracy in 1968. Today, Mauritius still uses a similar political system to the UK including a parliament and is also known as one of the richest nations in all of Africa. After doing my research on the island and uncovering the deep history, I wanted to bring that feeling across in the packaging design. The incredible mix of international peoples on the island also inspired a foreign currency theme that shows in the details and lettering. This project was featured in the Art Director’s Club Show in New York City in 2011.

BUILDING A STORY THROUGH SONG

Camera Obscura is a band that was first brought to my attention in the summer of 2009 and the quirky lyrics and inspiring talent made them an instant hit in my mind. With a mix of male and female vocalists and the hint of Scottish brogue, this group appeals to a wide audience. In my Print 1 class the objective was to create a tour book for a band of our choice and represent the music and feeling in a graphic way. I instantly knew the band I was going to choose and immediately started immersing myself in their work. Their lyrics are a mixture of real life events and whimsical fictional characters so that is exactly what I created. Using a sort of collage technique, I brought together photography, illustration, and other mediums and combined them by using color and texture as a common ground. Overall the design creates a energetic, melancholy and emotional tone for all fans.

BUILDING A STRONG STATEMENT

The AIDS virus has plagued the world for decades.

The objective of this project was the bring attention to the epidemic and create a poster to accompany the message. My first thought was to bring in a constructivist aesthetic to the project by taking inspiration from Soviet posters of the 1920s. Of course these posters were creating awareness about a much different cause but they were bold and powerful nonetheless. The fist represents fighting for the people and creating a strong campaign to stand behind. The basic symbolism of the red for AIDS and the golden colors of victory and triumph are what make this poster stand out. AIDS is not limited to a certain race or gender and this project aims to bring everyone together to fight and unite for one cause.

BUILDING A LUXURY IDENTITY

The objective in this identity class was to rebrand an existing airline or create one from scratch. I took this as an opportunity to be creative and come up with something that nobody had thought of before. The idea behind this airline is to combine the experience of private flying and commercial air transportation. The planes would be divided up into sizeable cabins that people reserve opposed to a small congested seat with little leg room. Depending on the customer and destination the cabin would be customized to their liking. For example, a family of four flying to Disney World would be equipped with board games, family friendly movies, snacks and popcorn. The bachelor party to Las Vegas would come with a bar, bartender, and poker table. The logo needed to be reminiscent of the class and attention to detail the airline provides. With a silver, black and white color scheme, it is definitely going to stand out.

Dear Mister Clark The problem was you had to keep choosing between one evil or another, and no matter what you chose, they sliced a little bit more off you, until there was nothing left. At the age of 25

most people were finished. A whole god-damned nation of assholes driving automobiles, eating, having babies, doing everything in the worst way possible, like voting for the presidential candidates who reminded them most of themselves. I had no interests. I had no interest in anything. I had no idea how I was going to escape. At least the others had some taste for life. They seemed to understand something that I didn't understand. Maybe I was lacking. It was possible. I often felt inferior. I just wanted to get away from them. But there was no place to go. Sincerely,

BUILDING A BRAND FOR A BREW

Portland, Oregon is a city of close-knit communities

and friendly neighborhoods where the people love meeting new friends. When the suns out in the summer, people love barbecuing, walking their dogs and enjoying a cold beer. Lucky Labrador Brewing Co. saw an opportunity to combine all of these things in one fun-loving restaurant. With four locations around the city, most Portland natives have been to, or at least heard of, this place and enjoy a beer there whenever the sun comes out. The brewery is slowly growing but as of now they don’t have much of a packaging system to sell their beer. My goal was to create a friendly and inviting packaging line for them to introduce into local Portland supermarkets to continue to grow and expand. With a bold yet fun color system, I used strong type and the unique names to create something that fits right into this neighborhood watering hole.

BUILDING A TEAPOT AFTER A CHAIR

My appreciation for all areas of design helps me to continuously expand my knowledge and skills. For my final semester at the Academy of Art University I chose to take a model making class in the industrial design department, and our assignment was to make a teapot inspired by a famous product designer’s work. This experience allowed me to learn and create through a much more hands-on process. After first sculpting the basic teapot shape out of foam, the steps to follow included vacuum forming, resin casting, air brushing and sanding. Even though there was a slight learning curve, I was able to bring my graphic design knowledge to the table and use the principles I had learned to create a strong final product. I researched designers Charles and Ray Eames and used their simplistic and creative solutions as an inspiration for my final product.

BUILDING AN IDENTITY

Identity design is one of the most important and

influential forms of graphic design. Being responsible for putting a face to a name and communicating this connection clearly and effectively to an audience can be as simple as designing a wordmark, or as complicated as creating an illustration. The most important thing is to remember who the audience is and what will be most impactful when connecting with them. Another important thing for a designer to take into consideration is the goal of the client and to keep their needs and priorities at the forefront of the project. The following identities are from a range of projects and clients, all possessing a unique style and feel.
