Roam is a fictional quarterly travel magazine that focuses on one state per season, the location varying on the north, south, east and west of the United States. This summer's edition focuses on a southern state, Florida.The compass within the O in the banner changes direction according to the state the issue is focusing on.
Roam features 3 posters per issue. These posters are perforated for the user to tear out and hang on their wall. I also designed 3 covers for preceding and following issues focusing on Montana (N), New York (E), and California (W). This issue was printed and bound by yours truly at MassArt.

Boston Children's Museum
Client: Personal Year: 2014 Role: Graphic Designer Discipline: Branding
Wanting to create a more elegant system that would attract both parents and adults to the Boston Children's Museum, I decided to take on the challenge of a rebrand. My system is mature enough to get the attention of a parent, but still playful enough to capture the interest of a child. Overall, the museum needs both of their approval.
I Love You I Love You!
Client: Personal Year: 2014 Role: Conceptual Designer, Graphic Designer Discipline: Artists' Book
I Love You I Love You! is a book using a letter accompanied by a secondary source. It uses ex-Nirvana member Kurt Cobain's suicide note, as well as his wife, Courtney Love's commentary on the note played at his public vigil.
The beginning of Courtney Love's commentary starts with "He always said he was gonna outlive everybody and be 120." Because of this, I used 120 pages in my book. 27 content pages (the age of Cobain at his death), and 93 blank, black pages. The rest of the back matter of the book, including end pages and book jacket, are black as well.
Kurt Cobain hated being famous. In respects to him, this book is designed to be the most average book size. Using "bad photocopy" textures, I attempted to tie in the look and feel of grunge zines from the time. This book was printed and bound by yours truly at MassArt.

Newly independents have it hard. Moving into a new apartment, living on your own, paying bills, the stress of work and/or school, as well as trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle is a lot to juggle. SAVR is here to help.
SAVR helps relieve you of one of these stressors by helping you take control of your grocery shopping. How many times have you come home to find food that has gone bad in your fridge and left you with nothing to eat? You won't have this problem anymore thanks to SAVR's virtual pantry feature that organizes all of your food in order of expiration date by simply scanning a QR code at the bottom of your grocery receipt.

Room No. 237
Client: Personal Year: 2015 Role: Conceptual Designer, Graphic Designer Discipline: Research, User Experience Design, Interface Design
Room No. 237 is an online interface that allows a user to dissect Stanley Kubrick's The Shining through multiple linear timelines.
Since The Shining is so complex in terms of plot and film form, the interface allows for many possibilities. Through color, soundtrack and tension, the user can select a 30 second interval on the top three timelines to view information about the film at that point. Then, the user can view particular information for each character in the film, including dialogue, screen time, and name mentions. This information can be compared to other characters as well as the top information.
With the task of creating a dynamic logo, I decided to imagine up a fictional haunted house to brand. Howl is a particularly scary haunted house which takes the pitch and volume of the screams coming from the inside in order to create a logo that changes with the scream. I created an animation to show the different stages of the dynamic logo, as well as business cards for the characters inside the house.
The business card backs are photo transferred onto velour: a creepy, velvety material.

Just Desserts is a website concept created by myself and another designer, Megan Riley. We came across a dataset on prisoners on death row and their final meal requests, and found it ironic that so many of them felt that they deserved a dessert after their meal. The website puts the user in the place of a prisoner trying to decide what to have for their final dessert, and compares the information inputted with the information from the dataset in order to help the user decide what to enjoy. The user can also filter through all the prisoners in the database to see what their murder weapon was, how many people they killed, what their secondary crime was and what they chose for dessert.
We also put together an infographic which takes a look at each prisoner in graph form.
