Here you'll find out a little bit about me and my design work. Feel free to take a look around.
These patterns are not a collection; they are individual patterns I created for practice and experimental purposes. Because they are experimental they consist of a wide variety of themes and color palettes.
For this school project, my assignment was to design an ebook cover and illustrations for a public domain book. Along with this, I also wrote the code for the ebook content in Adobe DreamWeaver. If you would like to purchase a copy of this ebook, you can find it here
Mini Watercolor Collection
The inspiration behind this mini watercolor-based collection came from exploring antique stores for unique finds.
I designed this postcard collection for a school project with a focus on typography. I combined typography with illustration to convey the meaning of the words on the postcards more clearly.
Walk in the Woods Collection
This pattern collection was inspired by the changing of leaves during autumn and walks in the woods in the crisp, cool air. The color palette reflects the rich, warm colors of Fall.
This fun project challenged me creatively to come up with a cohesive design that followed the story of Mr. Whale from the cover to the back page of the book.
Lovely Things Collection
This collection of patterns reflects just a few of the things I love about Spring time; simple pleasures, like bike rides and succulents sitting in a windowsill.
Hand Lettered Sign
I began this fun typography project with a rough sketch, and then inked over it. In Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, I added texture, colors, and gradients.
These patterns are a tribute to the charming trees, flowers, and creatures of Summer. The variety of objects and textures that I used in my patterns gives them each a unique look of their own. The color and similar subject matters tie them together to create a spread of summery designs.
For this school project, I chose an object and sketched it over many times. I slowly began to define the key visual elements and deduct the unnecessary ones. After refining the object in Adobe Illustrator, I chose a letter and manipulated it to fit with the look and feel of the object.
For this project, I combined illustration and typography to create two matching posters. I learned about color usage, handwriting, and illustration through this exercise.
Design History Book
The outcome of this project was twofold - I learned about the Art Nouveau movement as well as how to convey the key elements of that movement through the design of this book.
National Park Poster
The goal of this school project was to create an eye-catching poster about Yosemite National Park. I chose to focus on the figure of John Muir because he is used less frequently in advertisements for the park, hoping this would add some interest to the poster.
