Graphic Design & Illustration

An eye for design, a passion for creativity - nothing drives me more than the endless possibilities of creative problem solving. I pursue new challenges, and wish to meet them head on with a broad skillset. I am a huge nerd for great branding and eye-catching typography. Good design gives me hope for the future, and I'm eager to collaborate and learn from all my fellow creatives out there.

Sartori Cheese Ad-Series

For this ad series, I wanted to create visuals pairing selections of Sartori’s cheeses with their paired beverage. I wanted the wedges to be incorporated in each photograph. Minimal images were used to focus on the product and to highlight the typographic elements. I chose a slab-serif font to best display the headline while I chose a script font to create a sophisticated feeling for the description of each cheese variety.

Vintage Brewing Company Branding

In rebranding Vintage Brewing Company, my goal was to elevate the brand and create a more contemporary identity for a well-known brand in the Madison area. I wanted the brand to appear modern and refined, yet approachable and classic. A fusion of different influences, complimenting one another to create an identity that is bold but inviting. The hop icon is a vector graphic that is used throughout the branding, and is key to their new modern identity. The bold, sans-serif typography lends itself to Vintage’s new clean and contemporary image. More branding applications are showcased on my personal website, including printed materials, apparel, and a homepage design.

Adler Planetarium Poster Design

I envision my poster designs to represent an exhibit showcasing and educating its audience on each of the planets in our solar system. I wanted to instill a scientific and calculated aesthetic that featured a film-inspired color palette. Each piece is meant to convey the relationship between our home planet and others, continually developing our understanding of our stellar neighborhood.

Grampa's Pizzeria Homepage Design

When designing the home page for Grampa’s Pizzeria, my main goal was to build upon the brand’s reputation for a family centric atmosphere with fresh, quality dining options. I intended for the page to feel more like an experience instead of a static web page. I wanted the typography to have just as much of an impact as the images, and wanted the two to compliment one another while communicating the brand’s identity. While I wanted each section to contrast from the one before, I wanted to ensure a sense of visual harmony from top to bottom.
