Hand lettering that was inspired by the combination of a snide comment I had heard and my matroyshka doll dress.
Kappa Delta Phi National Affiliated Sorority
I am the Public Relations Officer of my sorority, Kappa Delta Phi N.A.S. As the Public Relations Officer, I function as the graphic designer of my chapter. I make posters for all of our events, I create letterheads, official documents, and promotional material for my organization. Additionally, for recruitment season, it is my task to create a cohesive package for that season's theme. In this package is our t-shirt, posters listing our activities and their dates, invitations, social media listings, and anything else that is considered pertinent.
River Keeper is an organization dedicated to keeping the ecosystem of the Hudson Valley clean. Every year, they host the River Keeper Sweep, in which volunteers help clean the Hudson River in locations from Albany to New York City.
I was selected to work with River Keeper through SUNY New Paltz, and with their guidance I created a poster to promote the Sweep.
Rivera House is a living-learning community on the SUNY New Paltz campus for LGBTQA+ students. I was asked to create a logo and a brochure for the program during its creation in 2015.
A class assignment. I created a magazine spread for people trying to transition into vegetarianism. In addition to the layout of the spread, I created the illustrations that are featured in it.
I created a task for myself to keep myself busy in between assignments. I came up with a wine label that appeals to my needs as a young adult trying to get through my last semester of college. The result was a bottle appropriately titled "Mental Breakdown & Midterms Merlot".
La Casetta is a hypothetical Italian bakery. It is located in Middleton, Connecticut and was recently rebranded with the remodeling of the bakery.
The logo was hand-lettered and hand-illustrated with the small coffee cup, and was then edited digitally for the final outcome.
Let's Talk is my senior thesis project. I believe that design can be an effective tool for education and social justice and created a website about comprehensive sexual education because of this. Aimed at middle and high school students who want to get more out of their sex ed than what the school system provides them, it offers a resource for anything they might need to know. From the basics of anatomy to learning about birth control, STI'S, relationships and gender and sexuality, Let's Talk know there are no stupid questions.
Additionally, there is a New York State map made to help young adults find resources in their area. Family planning offices, STI clinics and LGBT resources are the businesses the map locates, and provides one with the address, phone number and the website. One can sort by the kind of business they're looking for, or by county.
