Trailblazer is an identity for a proudly feminist bicycle brand. Inspired by the role bicycles played in the women’s suffrage movement, the Trailblazer brand is bold, strong, and revolutionary. 100 years ago, trailblazing women were fighting for the right to vote. Today, trailblazers are fighting for the right to make decisions about their own bodies, for equal pay, for the right to be safe in the streets, and for the right to ride.
Alchemists was chosen as the concept and design for branding the 2019 Spring Portfolio show. Alchemy is the premodern pursuit of transforming base metals into gold, and an excellent metaphor for the creative process. As design, photography and visual communication students, we take raw elements, like color and light and time, and transform them into cohesive projects that communicate with the world. Four icons represent each of the programs in the portfolio show. I wanted Alchemists to feel fresh, magical and otherworldly, and have a strong presence of the hand.
Full Spectrum Solar
The Madison based company, Full Spectrum Solar, installs solar electric systems in homes and businesses. I created a responsive website design that focuses on the home as the soul of a family. Playing on the Spanish word for sun, which is “sol”, I make a connection to the soul of our homes and our lives, the people we love. I wanted the website to feel simple and clean, hopeful and full of light.
I Will STEM
This is a PSA poster series designed to attract teen girls to careers in the STEM fields. 72% of girls want to pursue a job in which they can help the world, but only 20% realize they can do this through STEM. I targeted teens by creating personas that are paired with a social problem, connecting the STEM fields to helping the world. I focused on a proud, intelligent, and strong feel for this campaign.
The Drain Millipede Hair Clog Tool

Sold with the product itself, this booklet tells the story of Benjamin Krausky, a lonely plumber who has a history with hair. Far from a conventional brand book, Benjamin Krausky inspires brand loyalty for the Drain Millipede Hair Clog Tool in an unexpected way.
