I created this set of publications in response to the objectifying nature of American Apparel advertisements. The publications are divided into two parts, one typographic and one photographic and separate the ads headlines and images.
When the text and images are isolated and removed from their environments it becomes unclear as to what American Apparel is selling- clothing or women.
This is a direction for a pitch for a Google Play campaign. The idea is to take the Google Play symbol and create an isometric grid out of it. With this grid you can draw anything from 3D-type, to patterns, to shapes.

At your age is an interactive book that explores the transition into "The real world" after graduating college.

When mothers try to return to the work force after taking time off to raise their child they are often left with gaps on their resume for how ever long they took maternity leave. These gaps tend to leave mothers overlooked when being considered for jobs. The pregnancy pause is a company created to solve this issue, by allowing mothers to put this on their resume and let employers know that they took time off for their kids. This project was created in collaboration with the designers of Mother Design.

This is a set of 3 publications, each one exploring 99 variations of the phrase "keep it simple" a single line and the combination of both.
I believe that good design is born out of a balance between work and play. As designers we must play, discover and experiment and find new sources of inspiration while also remaining structured. This playful alphabet is a representation of the interaction between work and play or structure and experimentation.
ROAR is the annual Pride Party hosted by Callen-Lorde. The party takes place in the Central Park Zoo and marks the start of Pride Month in New York City. The festivities are suited for all ages and families alike. This project was created in collaboration with the design team of Mother Design.

These icons are a re-design of the current G-mail icons. The challange was to create a set of icons that did not represent something that existed in the physical world (ex: envelope, paper-clip, etc.) yet still have these icons communicate what their function is.
