Some cool headline comes here
In the fall of 2008—with the help of the Ohio State Design Department and the Sara Jane Pyne Memorial Scholarship—I spent an unforgettable Semester abroad at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Schwäbisch Gmünd Germany. There I broadened my design experience through new culture, design courses taught in a foreign language, life drawing and other unexpected encounters while studying and getting lost in unfamiliar countries.
I put these new “getting lost” experiences to use when I returned to OSU, and won “Best of Category” for my senior thesis which focused on Pediatric Wayfinding: Creating subconscious and friendly directional hospital signage for children.
Since graduating from the Ohio State University in the spring of 2009, I have worked daily designing websites, print materials and everything in between. I am lucky to have had the opportunity to work with such clients as: IBM, the Georgia Aquarium, Rand Worldwide, The Ohio State University, Sunday River Ski Resort, Vistaprint, Bryant & Stratton College, Curaspan Health Group, Proctor & Gamble (coursework) and more.
Look, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess.
I have had the opportunity to work with a broad range of clients and companies; from the Georgia Aquarium to Proctor & Gamble, Care.com and more. I’ve highlighted some of my favorites for you below. Click the buttons below the projects to view more comprehensive images of each.
