I created this book to document my collection of vintage shoes from my YiaYia. (Greek for grandmother) It is light on text and heavy on photography. Former mentee, friend and Ink contributor Ashley Grove shot the photos for me while I art directed. This meant I positioned the shoes all over Baltimore’s Bolton Hill neighborhood and then let Ashley do her thing.
I recently became a member of the smart phone team. That’s right. For the past 10 years I diligently updated my Samsung every two years for free. Until about a month ago it was impossible for me to receive e-mail on the go. But now, in honor of my new found freedom to tweet anywhere 3G is available, I designed a series of iphone cases from my letterpress and screenprint work.
Today I organized the newspaper pages I have designed/illustrated over the past 6 years. But first I spread them all over the floor. Then, forced my roommate to listen to all of my deadline stories.
You can never get enough advice from Alice! This spin-off of my original postcard concept, turned into a series of 30 screenprints and a Mother’s Day gift. The prints are 10×13 on French Paper – Construction/Steel Blue/80 cover.
Graphic Design Thinking is now available for pre-order on amazon.com. I wrote and designed the above chapter about sprinting, a technique I use to create a large amount of design solutions in a short amount of time.
The Visualization Marathon 2010 was a 24-hour student data visualization competition, that took place in New York City on October 23. The challange, hosted by Visualizing.org, was to visualize the impact of humanity’s footprint on Spaceship Earth. I worked with my peers Lauren Adams and Beth Taylor to develop an infographic that shows how human actions effects climate change in six steps of separation. We supported our findings with statistics about population growth, deforestation, transportation, water, biodiversity and the ozone.
