When Harry Met Sally...

When Harry Met Sally...

Create a typography-based poster for a friend to give to her fiancé as a Christmas present. Pulled inspiration from Jessica Hirsche and had a load of fun doing it. The final design was screenprinted on heavy paper & framed.

Flat Mat Yoga

Flat Mat Yoga

Created a logo for a Seattle-based yoga instructor looking to start a new business focusing on inspiring roller derby players to practice yoga. Working together, we decided to produce something super clean and influenced more by beer labels instead of “traditional” yoga graphics.

Two Suns Over Thebes

Two Suns Over Thebes

Created a poster for the Annex Theater's production of Two Suns Over Thebes – a unique re-telling of Euripides' The Bacchae. The co-directors requested no "stereotypical" imagery depicting Greek tragedy be used. The final design instead relied upon a bright color palette and hand-drawn elements influenced by the electronic-pop music in the show.

Marat/Sade

Marat/Sade

Created the promotional illustration for The Annex Theater’s production of Marat/Sade, a 2014 Best of Baltimore winner. I wanted to make something completely unconventional to the usual imagery associated with the play, and so I decided to imply the French flag through water, a bathtub, and blood. After I realized the direction, using watercolor seemed like the natural choice.

 Finalized logo for the Baltimore Rock Opera Society's  MURDERCASTLE  – an original rock opera set in the 1893 Chicago Worlds Fair.  The original concept behind the logo was to convey a sense of duality: to have a beautiful classic Victorian Gaslight-era font overlapping a gory twisted font, both reading "Murdercastle." This was to symbolize  H.H. Holmes' actual Murder Castle in Chicago , which on the outside looked like a simple hotel, but on the inside was a horrific death trap.  Over the course of the project this idea transformed and simplified; I took a major element from the show, the Ferris Wheel, and made it a focal point in the logo. The typography was created based off of an alphabet I found in a book from 1900 on  IAMPETH , or the International Associate of Master Penmen, Engrossers, and Teachers of Handwriting.

Murdercastle Entry Tickets

Murdercastle Entry Tickets

Murdercastle takes place during the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, also known as the World's Columbian Exposition. With this in mind I created show tickets modeled after the original 1893 entry tickets, with some show-specific changes.

Othello

Othello

Illustrated the promotional poster for the Mobtown Players' production of Othello. I opted to create a spraypaint stencil effect in order to create a sense of rawness and tension, juxtaposing the background image with negative space.

Emerald's First Life

Emerald's First Life

Illustrated the promotional artwork for the Mobtown Players' reading of Emerald's First Life – an original play based on the idea of living a double life inside a computer. The main character envisioned herself as a princess in her online persona, hence the fairytale imagery and typography.
