Overview A multipage annual report created for GNOME Foundation to be shared with foundation and advisory board members.
Project Design the annual report for the 2018 fiscal year. This report has existed in various styles and formats for many years, but was lacking cohesion and visual interest. When I was asked to help with the design and layout of this piece I chose to go for an entire restructure and redesign to help elevate the look of the report, create more structure in the content order, and allow for more graphic treatments to be introduced. Pulling from a triangular motif used in other GNOME work, I created additional geometric patterns and tied them to colors that would separate the content themes through out the report. These also allowed for additional photos to be included—featuring more of the GNOME community.

Overview A multipage brochure created for Chaminade University in Honolulu, Hawaii that will be mailed out to newly admitted students.
Project Design a booklet that would showcase the university and let newly admitted students know why Chaminade is a good fit for them. I was tasked with adapting and elevating an existing style and my goal was to make this piece feel like it belonged in with Chaminade brand, but still conveyed an excitement and energy that would speak to new undergraduate students.
Overview A folding business card created for UC Davis Undergraduate Admissions recruiters to hand out at newly admitted student receptions.
Project Design an easily transportable piece that is engaging, visually interesting, and informational. My solution to this was a folding business card that could contain important community and contact information on one side, while including an interactive list of college traditions on the other. Formatted like a poster, our intent was to give this piece a life after the reception.

Overview Sacramento RiverTrain and Sierra DinnerTrain are two of Sierra Railroads tourism trains. They’re both located in Northern California and each feature similar on-board experiences.
Project Both trains underwent massive renovation projects in 2016 and their branding needed style updates to support the new looks. As an in-house designer at Sierra Railroad, I developed an updated look and created a suite of collateral (brochures, rack cards, boarding passes, merchandise, advertisements, billboards, etc.) to showcase the trains and their experiences. I was also responsible for designing the exterior paint scheme for both trains. I developed over 100 paint schemes and mock ups to present to stakeholders. One was chosen to use on both lines, updating the passenger experience while referencing the historic nature of the trains.

Overview Simply You was created as a BFA project at Eastern Washington University. It is made up of a series of 16 cards and a web app and is intended to promote personal growth and insight.
Project This project uses personality theories from Myer-Briggs and Keirsey but presents the information in a more user-friendly, interactive way, focusing more on the character of the personality type and providing a smaller sample of information to pique the viewers interest in the topic.
For this project I developed 16 icons to represent each personality type, combined photographic imagery for each card, and wrote the content for each card based on research from multiple sources. I also designed and coded an accompanying web app.
