Outside Magazine Iconography

I created a set of icons for the website redesign of Outside Magazine. The icons represented the Gear Shed, Escapes, Bodywork, and The Current verticals.

The Daily Beast Refresh

The Daily Beast homepage, article page, and wrap pages were redesigned for desktop, mobile, and tablet devices with a team of five in-house designers.  

Role: I contributed to all parts of the re-design process for all three devices. Sketching, animating interactions, prototypes, user testing, and A/B testing were all apart of my design process.

Team Members: Daniel Boguszewski, Bronson Stamp, Dair Massey, and Quinn Ryan.

Interpreters of Tragedy
Evaluating the presentation of tragedy in design. View the publication here.
When a tragic event occurs, a call to action will be effective initially, but there also must be more lasting forms of communication. By engaging with both the cultures of the victims and the audience, the designer can create a more meaningful connection. Designers have the opportunity to bring a richness and new outlook to the event through expressive interpretation, unexpected juxtapositions, and metaphor.

Sense International Design Museum Concept

Sense International Design Museum is an environmental design campaign that showcases work of designers and photographers from around the world. The wordmarks reflect how artists are stimulated by their environment and technology. The building was designed to blend in with the environment around it and is covered in foliage. The building has large windows so visitors can experience the changing of the seasons. The collateral and application of the brand reflects the architect’s original intent. The museum includes a Gift shop.

The Embassy of Finland is located in Washington, DC and was designed by Heikkinen-Komonen Architects in 1994. The building has a close connection to nature with its large windows and workspaces.The minimalist building is consumed with spheral shapes and a curved staircase. Heikkinen-Komonen Architects are known for their elegance, simplicity, and transparency.

Better Mobile Experiences

NEXT at the Corcoran

I worked on the website development for NEXT 2012 from wireframe-completion. The site carried the concept of “interweaving connections”. The infinite scroll and background image allow for the user to follow a path and create new paths just as an artist would at the Corcoran. The user becomes immersed in a community and network.

Branding, invitations, and interior & exterior signage were also completed with this project.

The Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design presents NEXT at the Corcoran, a dynamic, interactive, and innovative present-ation of work by the graduating students of the Corcoran College of Art + Design. NEXT includes both an exhibition of the thesis work of the Bachelor of Fine Arts class of 2012 and a showcase of the Masters of Arts degree programs at the Corcoran

Morning Rush

A typeface made of coffee grounds, Morning Rush displays a fight to recover a sleepless night. The type is organized chaos, it is unpredictable but repetitive just like a morning routine. Each letter relies on accidents but still holds an integrity of a historical typeface. The typeface has natural undertones allowing the typeface to be interpreted as different objects.

Bodoni is a bold and robust typeface that lends well to the natural aesthetic of Morning Rush, capturing the bold taste of a cup of coffee. The Morning Rush has thick contrast between strong brews and sweet moments.

Creer Es: Join Our Conversation

creeres.org

A completely non-partisan and student-run campaign, Creer Es is Spanish for “to believe is.” We aim to encourage and empower citizens by talking about beliefs, community, family and how they relate to voting. 

I chose a handcrafted aesthetic for the Creer Es logomark, reminiscent of the visual language of Hispanic signage. This friendly and approachable type treatment evokes a sense of nostalgia and engenders an emotional connection between our intended audience and the Creer Es brand.

Designed for the Corcoran College of Art & Design, in Junior Studio 2012.
