Web & Digital Media Design

After spending the past decade working as an emergency veterinary technician, I found myself longing to express myself creatively. Having tinkered with Photoshop as a hobby since high school, studying web and digital media design felt like a natural next step, so I took a leap of faith and enrolled. What I didnʼt predict was that I could learn to apply the empathy I honed in my previous career to user-centered designs in order to communicate visually, and that has been a dream come true.
The Golden Man

The goal of this title sequence was to create a gender-flipped James Bond-style opening sequence. The title design was inspired by the classic film “Metropolis” due to its tonal and thematic similarities to the short story “The Golden Man” by Philip K. Dick. Artdeco inspired illustrations implying character motivation were superimposed over digitally-altered photography of classic statues and animated to create the feeling of a desperate pursuit.

What Your #StabucksIQ?

This social media campaign marries the timeless, elegant style of the Starbucks brand with the carefree, irreverent fun of the 90s through a series of Instagram stories. Bright, saturated colors and a silly, low-stakes questionnaire stimulate engagement with the brand and highlight the breadth of products Starbucks offers. Through this approach, the campaign engages the social media audience of Starbucks from the casual to the die-hard by posing the question: whatʼs your #StarbucksIQ?
