I have created event posters, album covers, Op-Ed illustrations, and marketing outreach materials.
Utilizing a cross-disciplinary skill set involving illustration, Adobe Creative Suite, and sometimes even Text Edit, I focus on expressing brands, events, and essays in an engaging original way.
This design for the University of Minnesota's AEGIS combines both the topic of the speech using the helix with the area in which the research was done. Bold red contrast was used to engage the eye in spite of a great deal of text.
This illustration for the Streets.MN article "Building a Better Bike Community" by Tessa Cicak explores some of the absurd features of the Minneapolis bicycle community and how that absurdity can be intimidating to new riders..
Promotional materials for the In the Groove Music booth at Bauhaus during Art-A-Whirl combined the In the Groove branding and the Bauhaus branding to speak subtly to both the location of the event and the partnership between the two companies.
This hand painted show poster is designed with an aggressive red color palette and news clippings to indicate the powerful social message of the band.
These quarterly marketing cards for In the Groove Music are hand drawn with comical animals on the heads of known cultural icons. With cohesive company branding and an original style, these outreach cards have already resulted in new business in a crowded B2B marketplace.
This poster for Augsburg Fortress's annual Gather Committee Potluck combines themes from old country records, The Red Green Show, and bad church basement Text Edit design to create engaging humor. Attendance at the event following this poster set an all time record.
All of the Toni Wolff's Dream Wedding show posters utilize collage in order to have cohesive branding and a humorous narrative. The goal is to empower young people to be open to jazz, an art form often encased in nostalgia.
The design for the Toni Wolff's Dream Wedding cassette plays off of a visual joke in order to insinuate the band's name. Toni Wolff (one of Carl Jung's mistresses) is taped over Emma Jung's face in the Jung's wedding photo.
