Booklet cover designed for the Martin Luther King Jr. I have a dream speech. I decided to give it an antique look while keeping a more modern design.

For this poster I made the cardboard figure. I then used a spotlight while I was taking pictures to get the distinct shadows/highlights in the cardboard. Then  manipulated the image in Photoshop. For the title, I used a cardboard texture to fit inside the typeface that I chose for the title font.

LightBulbInfographic copy-min

Infographic made for a course project portraying lightbulbs and their different effects on usage. A 24in x 18in poster showing multiple charts and graphics.

Typeface_Final2_Solomon copy-min

Alien Typeface Alphabet created as a course project. Our challenge was to create an alien and make them their own typeface. I chose to make a supernova alien and based the alphabet around shapes but taking inspiration from stars and constellations.

Passages was an art exhibit that featured 24 visual artists that illustrated choice literary passages. To achieve this look I let run ink down a sheet of paper. I then scanned the image into my computer and in Photoshop I adjust the color values. This was my finished product.

Fleck Coffee_V52-min

Fleck Coffee Shop is a local to the Boston area. This layout was created for POLISHED Magazine, a Lasell College student produced semester made fashion magazine. I decided to place all the photography mainly on the second page rather than spreading it out throughout the entire layout. I chose to use the dotted line that runs through basically the entire layout to tie the piece together.

NEW_Vows FINAL draft-min

Vows Bridepower is a bridal shop the the Newton, MA,  area outside of Boston. POLISHED Magazine (Lasell College’s fashion magazine) decided to do a segment on this particular bridal store. I decided to go with a cursive font for the title of the article and added the lace texture around the title of the article. I added in the drop cap for some extra flare.

Moss Graffiti is a topic that I chose for TARNISHED Magazine. TARNISHED Magazine is a student run magazine put together by Graphic Design students at Lasell College. Carly Schmitt was the moss graffiti artist that I interviewed for a feature in TARNISHED. I did the design as well as the writing for this article. I used a mint green color palette for my layout. The photos I arranged to add dynamic. The use of angles also adds dynamic to the layout.

I was given the challenge to come up with a design for a brochure that would display what Lasell’s Graphic Design program has to offer potential students. I took to InDesign and started making the basic layouts with the background shapes. I added in the photos that were provided to me by my client. I went with a simple design with negative space on each page. On the front cover I made a pattern with the shape that I created. On the back cover using the same shape to create a cutaway effect on a photograph.
