While the world has become ever more connected with the number of social networks and ways to communicate increasing every day, the ability to share contact information in the real world has not kept pace with online communities. Fliq uses magic to send contact information between two phones or devices, without WiFi or cell data, instantly.

Jepson Center for the Art's new visual identity reflects the details of the architecture and contemporary artwork displayed in the space. The logo represents the beautiful lines of light that shoot through the museum on a daily basis. A holographic foil was used considering the light in the space, as it would give vistors a new experience everywhere they walked in the museum.
Tessellate is a clean, modern, display sans serif typeface characterized through a combination of a geometric circle and 'rivers' flowing off select characters, inspired by organically formed channels that branch off of deltas. The typeface was sketched by hand, rendered in Adobe Illustrator CC and then finalized in Glyphs.
Direction After exploring a historical, sans serif and serif direction, learning calligraphy, studying systems of successful typefaces and dissecting glyphs, I decided to take the typeface a more modern, sans serif route. The system was developed by a consistent geometric circle and two kinds of rivers that break off the ends of select letters.

Opportunity Create and brand an interface with business value to help people find local "hidden gems".
Solution/Concept Localite aims to help our users save time by allowing them to find local, small business places or "hidden gems" that are not easily searchable or do not show up on broad Google searches. It also provides a spotlight for businesses and attractions that most people would be unfamiliar with. Localite helps you discover these places from your friends, view featured places based on your activity, search for places in new cities filtered by your interests, and plan future adventures with the itinerary function.
Visual Identity Based on our target audience and user testing, the interface was created to be clean, colorful and easy to navigate. With the amount of information being presented to the user it was important that the app felt calm and organized. The logo is made up of 4 'send' icons and assembled in a way that reflects a compass. With Localite, the possibilities and places to try are endless!

Opportunity Create a resource center for creatives that is inspiring and holds venues to help them get through creative blocks including an App used solely to seek out help and receive feedback from other creative professionals and manage your schedule.
Solution/Concept Wilde is a fictional creative resource center that provides our members with the most inspiring space to work and access to an exclusive app to get feedback and help from other professional creatives. The space is open 24/7 with multiple rooms and venues offering up creative necessities ranging from iMacs to light tables. Feeling stuck on a project? Visit the bar, grab a coffee or step into the music venue to see a concert! Feeling a little cooped up? Go to the courtyard to catch a breeze! (Yes our wifi still works out there.)
Visual Identity The identity for the center was inspired by the book Where The Wild Things Are. The book is an accurate representation of how important having an imagination is. A lot of times creatives suffer due to the lack of an inspiring space. The idea of imagination was paired with the creative process and the importance of iteration and doodling/sketching.
Blokus starts with 21 pieces. The players try to play as many pieces as possible by connecting the corners. The other players are in turn supposed to block you in so that you are stuck and can't play anymore pieces. The player with the fewest squares left is the winner! The blokus app lets you send your reactions through emojis to the other players when they block you in, challenge and compete with your friends and see where you rank up against other people's score.
Visual Identity The app was intended to feel sleek and elegant but also friendly. The colors where chosen keeping color blindness in mind so that everyone would be able to tell their pieces apart.

Oppurtunity To create a campaign that empowers women to be the boss of their own life while leading them to a site that can help them accomplish their dreams.
Solution/Concept #GirlBoss is a campaign aimed to empower women to lead creative, independent lives. #GirlBoss grants women money in different creative fields to get them on their way to being a powerful entrepreneur. I created a series of posters, guerilla packaging and a website that would help keep women feeling empowered on their journey to owning their future. The propaganda is used in an invasive way in urban areas to constantly remind women of their worth and keep them motivated to be the boss of their own life. The hashtag ultimately leads them to the website and encourages them to apply to the foundation. If chosen, the women would receive a financial grant to help her creative dreams come true.
Visual Identity The posters were created from bleach and india ink which was a combination that came about after trying multiple different liquids such as acetone, water and oil. The goal was to reflect the process of becoming an empowered creative woman. It's not always perfect or easy but it's always worth it and beautiful. You have to be fearless in your pursuit of your goals, and not be afraid of trying something new.
