I collaborated with singer Grace Weber on art direction for her upcoming album The Refinery, due out in the fall of 2014. After designing her logotype and agreeing on an album design, I applied the same treatment to the visual for her single Perfect Stranger.
I designed these zines as my promotional pieces. In the months following college graduation, I sent them out to respected designers, studios, and publications around the world. Each issue had a takeaway element that further communicated the issue's concept and overall message.
The Social Intelligence Report covers current trends in social web publishing. It's sent to over 200 publishers in the digital media industry every month as well as every quarter. I was asked by BuzzFeed's Director of Partner Development to create a consistent and unifying design across all of the materials.
The report is laid out either by myself or with my art direction. The graphs are provided by a BuzzFeed Data Scientist, and must also be redesigned so that they adhere to the look and feel of the materials.
I've laid out various educational materials for BuzzFeed. They all follow a similar structure and unifying type treatment.
This is a selection of my collage work. A sincere passion of mine, I pursue my collage projects in my spare time, and I create all of my work by hand.
I make an effort to incorporate my love of collage into my design work by digitally scanning projects and treating them as illustrations. I would love to pursue more of these projects as they present themselves.
BuzzFeed collaborated with condom company Durex to create custom sponsored content that people in relationships would want to share with their partners. I worked with one of BuzzFeed's creative strategists to conceptualize, research, and write the copy for a series of four custom infographics. I illustrated and designed each graphic while integrating assets provided by the client, and the finished products were housed within BuzzFeed posts to make social sharing easy for our users.

Adult Swim had two shows they were promoting with BuzzFeed: Children's Hospital and NTSF:SD:SUV::
The client commissioned an infographic that communicated just how much the comedy careers of actors Rob Corddry and Paul Scheer overlapped.
