AUDIENCE_ Everyone, from first-time wine consumers to long-time connoisseurs. Primarily, male and female consumers in the 20's and 40's range.

AUDIENCE_ Generation Y. Primarily men and women in their early 20’s to late 40’s. Travelers. Those who enjoys the sun as well as gadgetry. CONCEPT_ We are aware that our most powerful resource is the sun. We know that many technology materials are going to waste and destroying the environment. An innovation combining skin care and technology in the form of a lotion with the use of the sun as the main source, we are helping ourselves by using energy more efficiently, at the same time helping rebuild the environment. EXECUTION_ Solar panels and the sun work as the main idea to introduce the brochure, as the inner content explains what the product is about, what it contains, and how consumers use it to the full potential. Scientific elements, warm photography and color palette are incorporated to communicate skin care and the primary source of power—the sun. TYPEFACES_ Chaparral Pro, Abadi MT Condensed

AUDIENCE_ Earliest baby boomers. Generation Y (Millennials). Primarily modern women who are also single mothers. CONCEPT_ In a mission to elevate Kmart ahead of Target and Walmart as the leading department store, we wanted Kmart to appeal to a larger demographic by bringing well designed products into their stores. Kmart will be known as a design within reach company that still proves to be a leader in low prices. Our house of brands will be inspired by the theme of "the good life." EXECUTION_ With the use of contemporary and fresh colors, Kmart is revamped with a new logo along with a creation of its tiers: heritage brand of affordable basic products featuring $1 sample items, boutique brand of high quality and sophisticated products, as well as a Kmart endorsed bistro that are designed revolving our theme and design objectives.

AUDIENCE_ Graphic Designers. Printers. Advertisers. Educated individuals. CONCEPT_ Based on a theory I researched, we are provided with factual evidence that human vibrational energy, thoughts, words, ideas and music, affect the molecular structure of water. With this in mind, I chose to expand this concept further to enlighten people that water not only has the ability to visually reflect the environment, but it also molecularly reflects the environment, and is explored through typographic experimentation. EXECUTION_ Abstract graphics and soft, pastel colors are used to convey the message and provide meaningful narrative with its imagery. The typography flows with the elements surrounding it to allow for an increased learning and engaging experience to the readers. TYPEFACE_ Univers, Orator, Courier

AUDIENCE_ Male and female in their 20’s–30’s. College students. Engineers. Soldiers. Fighter pilots. Those who have interest in future technology. CONCEPT_ Knowing that electronics are getting smaller and smaller, eventually what will exist is something as small as a contact lens that helps you see beyond reality. With a recent research I did, a prototype has been made and experimented. This project is to promote its capabilities, push the boundaries of technology, and inform the possibilities of future technology. EXECUTION_ Perfect bound book with die-cuts of circuitry from metallic paper gives a textural appeal and makes for an interesting exterior that communicates directly to the viewer. Put together in a story, illustrations and graphics are made bold and clear, with a touch of humor to show the capabilities of the contact lens. TYPEFACE_ Akzidenz Grotesk
