This set of posters visually interprets the music of the band Foxygen. Their sound is funky, with dramatic crescendos and key changes; nostalgic of the the 1960s. Such qualities are reflected through dynamic typography and color choice.

WWIS Podcast Identity
What Was I Saying is a podcast produced out of Rochester, New York. The logo embodies the meaning of the show's title, captures the energy of the hosts' ambitions, and reflects the fast pace of social media by which the podcast is rooted.
Although the nature of social media is immediate and temporary, the bold quality of this logo provides followers with consistency from week to week. Every episode is accompanied by an Instagram post which includes a related photo and the speech bubble element from the logo. Instead of the title of the show, the title of the new episode is encased by the speech bubble.

These visuals represent the earliest stage of a creative project; an idea, epiphany, sketch, or mark. The symbols were created by experimenting with a variety of art supplies.

Thesis – Abstract Expressionism Revisited
Abstract Expressionism Revisited is a thesis researched and designed for one school year. It identifies the politically and artistically euphoric, yet complicated period in the United States following World War II. It discusses this era as a turning point for art, focusing on the lasting impact of Abstract Expressionism. Whether this era laid the groundwork for an innovative future or hindered the growth of art and American society is in question. Artist Robert Longo’s 2014 exhibitions “Gang of Cosmos” and “Strike the Sun” is a lens in which to examine this question, recognizing the parallels between the post-war era and present American society.
The project originated as a thesis paper. The subject was further explored through the design of a book, poster set, and video.

As the balloons are blown up, the circular elements on them take new form. Although they are the same circles, they have grown into something new. Within every balloon is another balloon, revealed after it is popped. It then takes on the same process as the one before it.
Art movements are similar in that as they grow, they change, always referencing the same origin. New art movements are born in response to older ones. The cycle continues endlessly. Abstract Expressionism is the result of the status of the world in the 1940s and 50s, and continues to be referenced and recycled
