Coffee Cann Cafe Identity
Coffee Cann Cafe Identity

As a start-up business with no pre-existing branding, the Coffee Cann Cafe's request for a logo came as a welcome challenge. Keeping in mind its many applications (collateral, signage, web, t-shirts, etc.) the client was looking for a "modern, professional, but slightly crunchy" logo. Despite their tight three-week timeframe the end product did not disappoint.

The Music of Letters

This book explores the relationship between the principles of music and type. Rhythm, melody, harmony – all things that can be represented through both mediums.

Limited to a minimal number of copies, the "hand-sized" dimensions and thick, toothy surface of the paper added an unexpected tactile dimension.

The idea of "motion" in a printed pieces is often a moot point, but that's precisely what this piece addressed.

With a hybrid approach of photography and digital illustration, this book achieves that.

2011 Enterprise Bank COS Book

Each year Enterprise Bank holds a Celebration of Success to honor its hardworking employees, and each year an accompanying "program book" of sorts is created. Bringing a less formal and more "friendly" feel to this piece, the book was designed with a scrapbook theme, chronicling the people and events that made 2011 one of the client's most successful in recent years.

Abracadabra Spread
Abracadabra Spread

A personal excercise in "expressive typography," I was experimenting with the idea of non-standard layouts and typography that visually represented the message of the text. The central ideas and existing emotions are brought to the reader's immediate attention through variations in type size, placement, baseline and linelength.
