The majority of municipal candidates who have used her designs have won their elections. Additionally, she has created social media content for gubernatorial and secretary of state races.

Seeing Red

They say one should write about what they know, with this project I took it one step further and designed what I knew too. Given the assignment of a magazine spread, I took my inspiration from my sisters and their red hair. The article reads about what it was like growing up with two redhead sisters and informs the reader about interesting factoids about the genetics of red hair. The design brings those factoids to life with a dash of fun.

GSAFE Rebranding

This project was to re-design a brand from a local non-profit, and I randomly drew GSAFE whose mission is to serve LGBTQ+ youth in our schools. When the project was complete I ended up designing a logo, stationery suite, annual report, outdoor advertising, tote, and apparel mock-ups. This was one of my favorite class projects.

Wedding Suite

This is a wedding suite I designed for a friend of mine. The color was chosen to coordinate with the bridesmaid dresses, and the hexagon shape coordinates with the diamond in her engagement ring! I sadly did not take the engagement photos.

In my Design Project Management class, we worked in teams to develop products to sell at the annual Printer Wonderland pop-up show. My team was assigned screen printing tote bags, and we chose to go with a Wisconsin theme with the knowledge that this theme usually sells well at the event. I developed two designs (seen here) that went up for vote on the Madison College Design and Illustration Facebook Page, and the winner was "Ope!" It sold out.
