Changing Travel Editorial Publication Creative Brief
The objective of this project was to design a full-length
magazine targeting young enthusiasts seeking to explore the world while making a positive difference along the way. Specific targets include those seeking to travel, the vacation volunteer, missionaries or just the curious adult seeking adventure. Changing Travel sheds light on many different organizations all over the globe, what they are doing to make a difference and how you can get involved.
2 After the Happily Ever After Pantone Promotional Posters Creative Brief
The objective of this project was to create a series of
promotional posters for Pantone, a company that develops ink and color matching systems so that designers (interior, graphic and web) can match colors across platforms. To promote the use of Pantone colors, I created posters using the theme of the Disney Princesses. The goal of this poster series is to imagine the life of three Disney Princesses, translating their skill sets into modern day society.
3 Cowboys & Indians Typographic Playing Cards Creative Brief
The objective of this project was to design a full deck
of playing cards using variations of a single typeface. The theme for the deck of playing cards is Cowboys and Indians, and the selected typeface is Baskerville. I used the classic American red and blue and accompanied it with a rich tan to help further the western feel.
4 Nordic Ski Resort
Branding of a Mountain Ski Resort Creative Brief
The objective of this project was to design a mountain ski
resort that could compete with those found in Lake Tahoe, California. Nordic Ski Resort is Norwegian inspired and targets young enthusiasts. The goal of this project was to design the Nordic brand and develop it across all platforms necessary to further the identity. The sub-brand for this project is Spro, the village market. It would be located in the main village of the resort and be the source of fresh fruits and vegetables, like a farmerâ€™s market.

5 Black Star
Beer Repackaging Creative Brief
The objective of this project was to reinvent the identity
for an existing beer company, repackaging the beer bottles and six-pack carrier case. Minottâ€™s Black Star Double Hopped Golden Lager is bottled at the Great Northern Brewing Company in Whitefish, Montana. In reinventing Black Star, I wanted to give it a new identity that better represented their company. Using Montana as my inspiration for the design, I envisioned a rustic and textured sticker with a simple type box. The goal was to create a masculine feel, but with qualities that women can find appealing as well.
6 Superheroes Eat Their Veggies Childrenâ€™s Book Publication Creative Brief
The objective of this project was to create an illustrated
childrenâ€™s book. The goal of this book was to encourage children to eat their vegetables. By creating each vegetable into a superhero, young children could be encouraged to eat their vegetables in order to grow up tall and strong like superheroes. Alongside each Veggie Superhero is a rhyme describing the entertaining types of adventures each vegetable superhero does with their super powers, while only using words that begin with same first letter as its vegetable.
7 Let’s EAT
Allergy-Friendly iPhone App Creative Brief
The objective of this project was to create an iPhone
app to help people with food allergies. Food allergies are becoming more common and learning to live with them can be difficult. The goal of this app is to help the consumer find allergy-friendly grocery items, restaurants and bakeries and also provide helpful facts and terminology. Let’s Eat would partner with successful apps such as UrbanSpoon, iCanEat and the iPhone’s built in map and directions. The inspiration for this app came from my own personal struggle with food allergies.
8 Greeting Cards Illustrations
The objective of this project was to create a series of
greeting cards for various occasions. Using an illustrative style, the hope is to explore the use of black and white pen illustrations, displaying the beauty of clean lines and elegant patterns.
9 Heinz CSR
Corporate Social Responsibility Report Creative Brief
The objective of this project was to reinvent the
Corporate Social Responsibility Report for Heinz. The goal was to highlight Heinz’s commitment to giving back and in turn, showcase the positive effect Heinz is having on local communities and impoverished nations. The redesign of Heinz’s CSR breaks up the heavy amount of text and supplements it with photography. The goal was to make Heinz’s CSR more visually appealing so that consumers would want to read through it and therefore gain a deeper respect for Heinz as a company.
