This project uses both design and photography to follow one brain’s journey through panic. Using shapes and bold colors, it relies on abstraction to capture the calm mind through the chaos of panic and back again.
This is a system created for Berlin-based DJ and producer, future:remnants. Because his personal work is made primary from found sound, I wanted to the visual identity to play with the idea of what is hidden versus what is found. To accomplish this, I inverted the circular vinyl-on-solid-background motif - one that is seen frequently in electronic album art - using colored spheres to obscure both found and personal images.
This project, which is still ongoing, is a collaboration with Casper Van Westhausen. Together we have created both the concept and the identity system for a new educational platform, “Center”. Center exists in two parts. First, it is a free digital database where users can learn from a variety of different media covering an unlimited number of creative, technological and developmental endeavors. This content, uploaded by the Center community, is free for all users who are encouraged to in turn upload their own educational content and the growth of the boundless resource that is Center. Second, Center exists in the form of events happening all over the globe where knowledge and skills are shared in a series of talks and public exchanges.
Libauer & B.U.O.Y.
The following project combines type design, photography, and graphic design. Libauer is a type family of four fonts: regular, tweaked, lowercase and roulette. Made for the fashion designer B.U.O.Y. (whose clothes are featured here), the typeface is playful, experimental, and dynamic. When working with libauer roulette, the letterforms are generated at random - creating a varied combination of the other three fonts. This allows for a feeling of play and a relinquishing of control.
Yayoi / CAMS
This system was made for a fictional “dream exhibition” that would bring Yayoi Kusama’s work to my hometown, Sacramento. The system takes inspiration from Kusama’s pattern work as well as relies on a graphic typeface reminiscent of Pop Art.
Assorted Client Work
The following are samples of work I have done for clients in the last months - from wedding invitations to identity systems for new businesses.
