SENIOR CAPSTONE

OHRIN TAROT Creating an experience around tarot cards in a way that fosters learning and highlights inclusivity. The Ohrin Tarot deck’s goal is to put a spotlight on our differences. With genderfluid figures and a wibe range of body shapes, and races, the hope is to give the younger generations of tarot readers a deck that they feel represented in. Along with a sample of the Major Arcana cards, the project’s deliverables also included branding, packaging, and a fully prototyped guide application.

KINETIC TYPOGRAPHY The inspiration for this kinetic typography lyric video comes from the single’s cover art. “Robbery” by the Australian pop-rock duo, Lime Cordiale, is gritty and up beat which was then translated into this minute long snippet of the song. This description isn’t done or good. 1st Place Positive Space Winner

Accepted into Positive Space Show

ILLEGAL ACTIVITY In the 1940s, a gas station owner named Irving Reingold offered lower prices to customers willing to pump their own gas. As more and more states around the country began to offer self-serve gas stations in the 1970s and ‘80s, New Jersey stayed put. The illustration depicts just that, a man breaking the law in the least suspecting way.


I L L U S T R AT I O N
