Every year, Maine College of Art partners with Geary’s Brewing Company to host a contest for their Summer Ale packaging design. The first concept features six different sunglass personalities. These personas are meant to be a playful way for people to have fun with their friends while enjoying Geary’s. The second concept aims to attract a younger demographic than their current market. The design features handwritten type and playful illustrations.
Student Work, 2013 A5, Perfect Bound
Using stories and illustrations by fellow MECA students, I designed a print-on-demand book. Specific attention was paid to the typography and image treatment, and I worked to create a classic story-book look and feel. The illustrations featured on the cover were physically cut out and then photographed in order to bring a more tactile quality to the cover.
Eyes On Owls
Student Work, 2012 12 x 18 in. Poster
Working with the Maine Audubon Society, I designed posters used to promote an upcoming children’s event. Using original illustrations, this poster was meant to be attractive to both young children and their parents, promote awareness and attendance of the event, and help create brand recognition of the Maine Audubon society.
Lessons From Granddad
Student Work, 2013 16 x 10.25 in. Spreads
After writing an essay on my grandfather’s impact on my life, I designed a magazine spread using photos from his personal collection. I wanted to create a traditional typographic layout while keeping the image treatment playful, reminiscent of his personality. I pulled the red-orange color from his legal robes as well as a plaid winter jacket I always remember him wearing.

These spreads share the recipe for my grandmother’s banana muffins. Since baking is a finicky process, the design shows the proper texture, color, and consistency for each step of the recipe.
Student Work, 2012 11 x 17 in. Posters
The goal of these posters was to get out the vote during the 2012 presidential election, while remaining non-partisan. My first concept explored relevant issues such as the economy, healthcare, gun control, and education, while remaining unbiased on the subjects. The second concept was intended to inspire viewers to have their voices heard and stress the importance of each individual vote.
A Day In Cyberspace
Student Work, 2013 30 x 20 in. Poster
This poster maps out my internet use over the course of one day. My design concept was inspired by flight maps, and I was interested in seeing the visual pattern my web use would create as I moved from site to site.
Maine Rivers Posters
Freelance Work, 2013 24 x 36 in. Posters
I was approached by the Maine Rivers Association to design a series of posters promoting community awareness and involvement with the Mousam and Kennebunk Rivers. Using imagery from local photographers, I created a series of informative posters that were displayed in a local Patagonia retailer.
