I've always been in awe of the mystery and power that the Kraken commands through its legends and tales.
For one of my classes we had to create a museum based around any character of our choice, so I found my guy 20,000 leagues below.
Presented is all of the branding and designing for "The Kraken Museum" as if it was being pitched to a client.
All of the branding and signage was hand drawn, keeping with the fact that throughout time that is how the Kraken is represented.
I am a huge fan of Shepard Fairey.
His works, specifically his hands on ones (posters, murals, canvas, and etc.) have always been a source of inspiration. When I was tasked with creating a typeface after someone influential to me, it was a no brainer.
The typeface "Fairey" was designed with the intent of it being easy to use as a stencil typeface.
The final product is a handmade book and a canvas piece similar to what Fairey himself makes.
Urban Wildlife Rescue is a non-profit wildlife rescue and rehabilitation organization.
I chose to rebrand this organization because I'm passionate about nature and its critters.
I created my own identity system to rebrand their current one. This identity system included everything from a new logo, color scheme to even my own proposed tag lines
I was tasked with creating an infographic for any topic and I chose to create one based on anxiety in America.
After countless hours of research, I discovered that shockingly our own media and use of technology is the source of America's anxiety rather than other assumed things such as our economy or health.
The final outcome is a 30in x 44in poster.
I have to admit, architects are pretty cool.
This book was created to document and analyze the life and works of famous architect I.M. Pei. The grid and stylization of the book itself is based on I.M. Pei's own unique style and philosophy when it came to creating his buildings.
This book is part of a 3 part series: Foundation, Exploration, and Execution.
This was a quantitative data/statistic design exercise that required me design 10 different squares for a topic. Each square was to show some statistic in relation to the topic.
As addicted as I am to coffee, it made sense to do what I brew.
As it was an exercise I challenged myself to not spend over an hour in planning and creating each square.
The squares are wrapped up in a burlap sack and packaged in a wooden box. I filled the box with coffee beans so the oh so familiar smell of coffee would be part of the viewing experience.
I like drawing a lot, so here are some pages from my sketchbook.
