-Society: A person who communicates via modern technology.

History: The latinized form of “Weber,” a surname of German origin. Derived from the noun “Weaver,” one who binds and forms textiles, taking pieces & constructing a greater design.

Self: This is who I am, a weaver & communicator. Composing the fibers that make up our complex ideas, in order to create tangible and recognizable forms. It is my goal to utilize design as means of weaving together form and function.

02 Being a die-hard fan, I launched into a re-design of The Settlers of Catan. The game is normally packaged in a large cardboard box w/ blister pack. I sought to re-create the board using only one sustainable material, while reducing setup time & turning the game into one unified experience. The

game now comes with rules and storage all built within itself.

06 The Orvis brand is an American staple within the world of fly fishing (competitive and recreational); however, their current graphic voice

OrVIS

doesn’t speak to the roots of this great sport. I re-designed the packaging to show off the great outdoors, using small graphic details to hone focus around the reels without obstructing content.

07 Choosing an already established identity, we had to re-vitalize this brand for a new day, making it much more accessible and attractive to a growing customer base. By re-envisioning a cargo giant stuck in the early 80’s, I set out to re-brand Containers International for the modern day.

Without leaving your smart device, we wanted to create a minimal & simplistic approach to keeping track of your day. After consideration, the conclusion was made that the best approach would be to create a simple list. Nothing fancy, just what you need to do & what you’ve already accomplished.

With the rise of the computer age, the internet has become somewhat of a digital warezone. As important information is strewn throughout cyber space, it is necissary to develop adequat protection for users and their content. The development of nkr.pt was a neccesity, by offering users a place to securely share and browse content, simply by logging in through the web portal.

-The last five years have been an incredible ride, enough so that it would be impossible to formulate into a few simple words. Without the support of my friends and family, I would have never gotten to this point. The sheer amount of knowledge and awareness that I’ve developed has me ecstatic to push into the real world, in order to make more discoveries & continue to grow as a creative individual.
