This was a website that I created for class using Wordpress with the Divi Builder plug in. The assignment was to create a website for a designer or artist of our choice that showcased their work and gave information about them. I chose illustrator Mark Conlan. This was the final product.
These illustrations were part of my final journalism project. The story was about the pollution in the Quinnipiac River and how local communities were coming together to fix the problem. I created each illustration in Adobe illustrator. You can view the full story here.
I was hired to create this poster for the radio station at Quinnipiac University. They wanted a concert poster for their 2018 spring concert. This was a very difficult project for me. Due to a miscommunication, this poster was a complete redesign of a previous design. I was challenged with two indecisive clients, but in the end created something everyone was happy with. The image was created in Adobe Illustrator and the layout was created in Adobe InDesign.
These illustrations were all created for my senior journalism capstone class, HQ Press. Every Friday, we highlighted a famous person who was from Hamden, CT, the town that we publish from, and posted these illustrations on our social media channels. I created all the illustrations in Adobe Illustrator.
This was a video infographic that I made for my motion graphics class. I have always been passionate about the planet and the environment, so I wanted to bring awareness to pollution. I illustrated the entire project in Adobe Illustrator and added motion to it in Adobe After Effects.
This was a project that I completed for my web design class. Although I did not end up coding this site, these are the mockups that I created in preparation for the site, which I was still incredibly happy with. The site was a one page design, which used an anchor navigation. I felt that this site was out of my comfort zone and very different from anything else that I have created so far.
This app was created as a redesign of the Metro North Railroad App. I edited the app to be more directed at commuters based off user reviews. I also redesigned a logo for MTA and created a more in depth color palette. I created the mockup and prototype in InVision Studio. You can view the whole prototype here.
I created this poster in my Typography II course. The assignment was to create a calendar design for a business/organization of our choice using our own photography. I decided to take the assignment a step further and incorporate hand drawn type. The poster was designed in Adobe InDesign, and the type was drawn on paper and refined in Adobe Illustrator.
This was my first project from my typography class. It was a simple task; we were meant to design an interesting layout of a basic recipe. I experimented with fun letter placement that bled off the page. The fish illustration was created in Adobe Illustrator.
I created this brochure for my typography class. I was given only copy and was meant to turn it into an 8 page booklet. The artwork/imagery was created in Adobe Illustrator, and the booklet itself was created in Adobe InDesign. My biggest challenge with this project was determining the hierarchy of the information. However, the rest of the project was straightforward and the final product was unique and creative.
The process of creating this poster was a long one. I began by outlining the basic shape of how I wanted the poster to be laid out. Because the quote was about speech, I wanted to create a large mouth. After I had the illustration drawn out, I drew out the letters. I photographed the letters and brought them into Adobe Illustrator where I refined them and added color to the whole piece.
This project was created during my time at Colby College. It was the project that I was most proud of from my time there, because I completely redesigned the previous year’s booklet. I started with 16 blank pages. After completing many image searches within the College’s image library, after implementing character and paragraph styles, after designing two infographics, and even after using some of my own photography on the cover, the booklet was a complete success and was entirely my creation.
This was a quick stop motion animation video that I made by cutting shapes out of construction paper. Every frame I would gradually move the pieces to show motion.
I created this project for my data visualization class. The assignment was to create a day in the life infographic about the topic of our choice. I chose to focus on a very specific colony of flamingos in South America. This infographic went through many revisions of art styles, information, and layout but in the end this was the final product I settled on. You can view a more detailed look at my process here.
This type specimen poster was created for my typography class. This project was fairly difficult for me. I had no problem coming up with designs, but I struggled in incorporating the history of the typeface in the design. After some more in depth research, I decided to highlight the fact that Gill Sans drew inspiration from the original typeface used for the London Underground. Therefore, this design incorporates elements from a vintage map of the Underground system.
This poster and info card were created for my typography class. The purpose of this project was to shrink a design down to a significantly smaller size (in this case from an 11x17 poster to a 4x6 card) and maintain the information.
This infographic was created in Adobe Illustrator for the Colby Magazine. It was meant to accompany an article about Colby’s new computational biology major. It’s purpose was to visualize the growth of data. It can be viewed on the Colby website here.
This was a project that I worked on during my time at Krative, a brand marketing and design agency in New Haven, CT. The company needed to identify their brand, and therefore I created this logo and collection of print collateral to best represent them.
This website was also created during my time at Krative. Although I wasn’t the sole creator of this site (I worked on a team with another intern), I played a very large role in the layout and organization of the information.
This was issue 19 of QBSN: The Magazine. I was very heavily involved with the creation of this magazine as the vice president of QBSN. I was the photographer for the cover shoot and the women’s ice hockey shoot. I also designed the feature article spreads, and numerous others throughout the magazine.
