A Book to commemorate the work of the Architect Pierre Koenig. My focus was in Koenigs geometric and simplistic use of materials. This project was a test of articulate typography and editorial experimentation.
Typeface created using fonstruct. Named Dragoon after the british cavalry regiment. The reason behind the name is its similarity to the word dragon and the thought of muskets or carbine fire (breathing fire). I took from this meaning and displayed the typeface with natural or historic imagery, to harken at the mythic nature of the dragon.
A project for the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art's Sculpture Park Celebration. This year's celebration is Fiesta themed, in relation to the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera Exhibition. We were asked to create a design artifact that would lead the users (children and their families) around selected sculptures in the park. The primary source of inspiration for this project was surrealist paintings as a means for appealing to the children's imagination, tie in the featured exhibition, and facilitate creativity. Each sculpture was poetically conceptualized and visualized, along with a corresponding activity that would teach or allow the user to engage with the meaning of the sculpture.
Poster designed to welcome the designer Nigel Holmes to the Kansas City Art Institute. It is a mock lecture and the objective was to gather attributes of the building that the lecture was being hosted in and compliment the designers skill portrayed in their design.
An online presence to organize a collection , of which I chose vases or "vessels", in a clear and cohesive manner. I found Vessel an appropriate name not only due to a vases function but as well as the sites content. Consisting of a selected few. Ves-sel Sel-ection
We designed a dimensional monument which allows for the user to physically interact with and commemorate the synthesizer. The monument offers the opportunity for collaboration of multiple users to depict the importance of all of the elements of a synthesizer, how they change wave forms and how they work together to create one sound. The overall focus is how influential the synthesizer has been on music over the years and honor the shift from analog to digital forms of making sound.
A spatial experience created around the admiration of Art Nouveau. This would be a proposition for an event held at the H&R artspace in Kansas City, Missouri. My team and I decided to focus on the organic likeness of the movement and compare it to the work that was created to furnish and decorate everyday life. Because of this, we chose the name Anatomy and Opulence. We picked different colors and typefaces that we felt represented the time and carried that over to a invite for the event.
Prints and Posters made on the side.
This campaign was a project that me and a group of diverse professionals developed at an intern program in Kansas City, Bernstein Rein. This is one of the two campaigns proposed to the client. Although the campaign is purely hypothetical, we invited a prominent member of the company and we presented financial, social and creative strategies to further the companies success.
OVERVIEW OF STRATEGY
While seemingly casual, Baldwin has vested a great deal of passion into crafting its clothes. This level of dedication is evident in the tactility of the clothing and, when worn, creates an extraordinary experience. Baldwin appreciates sharing their talents - this needs to be more evident. To elaborate on this, the campaign aims to show Baldwin’s mysterious existence in Kansas City and provide a solution for Baldwin to live outside of the store in an other than ordinary way.
