A separate identity created for myself. Identity includes a Thank You card, a set of buttons, and a business card. The Teddybear Mafia represents my desire to great good work without seeking praise or attention.
A process book documenting my thinking and production process for Connected Isolation, a set informational material celebrating the 2005 Pritzker Prize Winner, Thom Mayne. Book includes a hand-sewn spine and pages. The back of all pages are snippets from my sketchbook during the project. Small messages are hidden within folds of the book.
A set of twelve double-sided cards designed for 20th century typographer, Jan Tschichold. Body copy is composed of a self-written two-page research essay. One side of the cards make up my interpretation of Tschichold’s workspace in the 1920s and the flip-side, an interpretation of his 1940s workspace (after his move to Switzerland.)
A set of six informational cards, an eight-page book, a 20 by 80 inch poster, and a box to fit them all in. Pieces are designed to celebrate 2006 Pritzker Prize Winner, Thom Mayne and his architectural philosophy. After reading an essay of his titled Connected Isolation, I was strongly inspired by his ideas of giving people more social opportunities through architecture, to give people more opportunities to “connect.” Mayne’s essay became the title of my project and every piece aims to exist both individually, yet also be a connected piece in a bigger whole.
A 30-page, 5.5 inch by 4.25 inch zine documenting my relationship (or lack thereof) with my family. Covers are made out of pages I ripped out from a programming book from the eighties. Spine is hand-sewn with deep red and white embroidery thread. Pages printed on 20 lb Domtar Earthchoice Grey paper.
A collaboration project between two designers. A project made with paper for a six feet tall window designed to celebrate the 2013 Pritzker Prize winner, Toyo Ito. My partner and I chose to re-interpret Toyo Ito’s architectural philosophy about embracing organic forms because of humanity’s instinctual draw to nature. We chose to play with the natural inclination for humans to be curious with slightly open “windows.” Both designers worked with one another throughout the project, from conceptual research to production.
