A publication that I designed and edited which compares the work and approaches of Jan Tschichold, who literally wrote the book on modernist typography, and David Carson, who set out to break Tschichold's rules before even bothering to learn them. The content and design of the publication seeks to reconcile the differences between them through essays, interviews, an image section—which puts page layouts of the two designers side-by-side, and a fold-out cover—featuring a directory of their cover designs which correspond to the image section.
Making Room was an outdoor installation that doubled as an exhibition space built and curated by Tom Bierlein and Ian Hanesworth in association with Minneapolis' Greenway Glow project. I created an identity system for the event which included signage, invitations, and booklets.

Foodways was an exhibition at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design that highlighted how contemporary Minnesota-based artists use the subject of food to reveal patterns of consumption, processes of acculturation, and the power of memory. For Foodways, I designed the exhibition signage, invitations, and posters, as well as special road-side banners that ran down 26th St. in Minneapolis alongside the artwork Consumed by Rosemary Williams, which takes American food packaging without any of its original text and displays them as banners in public spaces. I took insipiration for the design from signage on the many small grocery stores that neighbor MCAD along Nicollet Avenue.
New York Film Festival Kinetic Signage
This was a kinetic poster that I made, meant for the NYFF. It would be used on site to show the film schedule to attendees. I enjoyed the opportunity that motion gave me to play with overlapping elements within the layout.
A type specimen for a typeface I designed using prototypo.io named FT Foundational. The typeface features wedge serifs that occur only along the baseline of the letterforms. In this piece, I enjoyed playing with the concept of a type specimen— designing for the type to function as text, but also to put individual characters on display simultaneously.
An exploration in recursion, div.in/divs explores the qualities of the HTML element, the Div. Divs are HTML elements which designate a division within an HTML document and are often used as containers for other HTML elements or to define segments or sections of the page. divs.in/divs collects 38 studies which utilize jQuery to infinitely populate divs inside of eachother. Slight changes in the CSS or scripts create variations ranging from subtle to dramatic.
A web-based interface which allows users to add various signs to a page which can be moved around to create messages. Users can interact with each other in real-time, to communicate and create messages together. This application was written using socket.io.
This is exhibition signage that I designed for MCAD's annual juried student exhibition. I was tasked with creating an identity for an exhbitition which had not yet been curated and would feature work from students of all different disciplines and backgrounds. I tried to make the work as abstract as possible to best represent a group of students who defy to be categorized.
