Mixtape: Visual Guide to Listening

Graphic Design, Imagery

I aimed to create a sensory experience by combining music with a booklet of curated images. I selected an image (often an art piece) that I felt matched the mood of each song . I then added facts about the image and/or the respective song to the coordinating page so that the sensory experience could even become an informative one.

I named the project “Evocative. Movement.”. “Evocative” since both the paired song and image are meant to evoke a common mood. And “Movement” because many of the songs explicitly describe movement in the lyrics.

This is definitely the most elaborate mixtape cover booklet I’ve ever attempted to make.

One Bookshelf. Two Portraits.

Graphic Design, Illustration, Imagery

I love to read and I love to design. I combined these interests and attempted to make an interesting portrait of the last 5 books I’ve read. Two versions emerged from this exploration. The more illustrative version came naturally and the diagram came from further simplifying and refining.

Astrology Diagrams

Graphic Design, Illustration

I’m a huge fan of astrology and wanted to create some interesting diagrams to stretch my research and graphic design legs.

Each of the 12 astrological signs are grouped into 4 bigger groups called Elements (Fire, Earth, Water and Air). These Elements have common qualities. Here I broke the Elements into diagrams and showed the characteristics that are both shared and individual to the 12 astrology signs.

Overall, Water signs are emotional and intuitive, Earth signs are practical and hardworking, Air signs are intellectual and curious, and Fire signs are dynamic leaders.

Pop Culture Poker Pieces

Graphic Design, Illustration

A recent project I worked on endlessly as Holiday gifts for my friends. This specialty deck of cards includes my first ever digital illustrations of my friends as Queens and Jacks, pop-culture laden Aces, Jokers and Kings, and King’s Cup drinking game instructions on the rest of the deck. I designed a crest of symbols for the card-backs. Included in the deck was a guide to decoding the crest and instructions on how to play a favorite drinking game. The reverse of the sheet features hypothetical monologues I wrote for each of us.
