The existing website for Denver based Moroccan-style restaurant Mataam-Fez does not effectively represent the beauty and authentic ambiance that the physical space offers (belly dancers, guests sit low to the ground on beautifully adorned pillows, no utensils available, etcetera). I feel that in order to attract new customers and maintain a strong public image, the restaurant badly needs an updated webpage. Here I have included more effective and consolidated navigation, improved typography and warmer, more authentic imagery.

The challenge for this project was to successfully create, design and illustrate a fictional narrative based upon a patient treated at the J.C.R.S. Tuberculosis Sanatorium in Lakewood, CO. We were given access to archival patient files stored at the University of Denver. We researched into the life of whomever we had chosen and developed a story about their stay at the J.C.R.S. Once we created a written narrative, we got to work designing a book for which to incorporate various photographs and written documents, providing the story with a rich visual sequence of events. My story takes place in the early 1900s about a young girl named Bessie who was recently diagnosed with tuberculosis and her experience as she overcomes her disease only to meet her unfortunate fate as she is accused of starting the famous Triangle Silk Waist Fire in New York City.

When people are summoned to serve as a juror, they are seldom excited or willing to participate. Our mission was to change that. From the moment a summons is received in the mail to the morning that the recipient shows up at the courthouse, the juror should feel at ease. During a semester-long course, myself and a small group of designers collaborated with the Denver Jury Commissioner to propose a redesign of the entire jury process, creating everything from an informational website to environmental signage within the courthouse to an automated check-in system. As the first piece of information the prospective juror sees, we felt the existing summons fails to easily communicate what a juror needs to know in order to be comfortable with their experience within the jury process. The new version would cost roughly the same to distribute while disclosing the same amount of information within an intelligently designed hierarchy creating efficiency while reducing confusion.

Working as an intern at ripcord llc., the assignment here was to concept, create and produce an intriguing and cohesive theme for the 2011 Business Marketing Association (BMA) Gold Key Awards Ceremony. ripcord was charged with leading people to the event as well as enticing them to enter their work into the show. This was achieved by promoting the event through the use of online, print and video mediums as well as environmental design displayed at the ceremony. Because the Gold Key Awards Ceremony is recognizing the best work throughout the business and design communities, we thought the theme should communicate just that–Displaying The Best. Within this theme, the BMA is embodied as an eccentric millionaire who is hunting to find the best, the most valued and sought after ‘species’ out there. The species are the recipients of the awards. He is proud to have them displayed as head trophies–awards in his Victorian mansion.

These magazine spreads are designed to accompany an article about the very nature of the body and its unconditional relevance to virtually every aspect of society, religion and the family. The body, whether consumed as a ****** object, labor-commodity, or natural landscape establishes the foundation of nearly every social and economic construct of both the past and present world. The beautiful, simple forms of the type, accompany the raw, and uncontained illustrations alluding to the complexity and duality of the subject matter.

This was a semester-long collaboration in which three graphic designers and three interior designers teamed up together to design and brand a culturally themed restaurant and retail venue. Each of the Graphic Designers were charged to create a comprehensive identity system from business cards to interior posters while the Interior Designers were to design the physical space of both venues. The restaurant would be featured around ‘Celtic Cuisine’ while the retail venue would sell handcrafted sculpture of the Celtic style. We chose the word ‘Deo’ (meaning life in Gaelic) for the name of the restaurant venue and the word ‘Gova’ (meaning the forge) for the retail venue. A vital part of our process was staying true to our five core values and our mission statement which subsequently influenced every design decision we made. ‘Enjoy modern Celtic cuisine in a rustic yet elegant atmosphere alive with laughter and good company.’

This poster was designed for George Bernard Shaw’s play based upon the alleged ignorance and indifference exhibited by the upper and upper-middle classes within Britain during the First World War. Since Heartbreak House employs dark humor, the typography reflects a certain distressed and imperfect aesthetic, while the imagery in the background expresses a sense of despair and thoughtlessness. The deep shades of blue contrast with the glimmering red hues help to communicate a dim and dismal atmosphere.

This piece is an exploration into the relationship between the individual and the ways in which death and physical trauma are viewed and accepted within western society. Printed on newsprint (in the tabloidian spirit), I have attempted to visually illustrate what, exactly, sparks such fascination with death, trauma and suffering as depicted within the spectacle of popular culture. Because the provocative nature of the imagery presented within its pages, this piece has the potential to deeply strike nerves within the human psyche. It sears into the viewer, and provides a personal experience, evoking at once fascination and revulsion, inspiring self-identification and realization.
