13 Reasons Why Dust Jacket
For this redesign I took the key elements of the story line and integrated them into the overall cover design. I mostly focused on the concept of the cassette tapes and what they represented. The hand written note describing the synopsis represents one of the reasons why she took her own life. The title is custom hand lettering to look like the black tape of the cassette because her message, all the reasons why, are translated through the tapes. All of the individual elements seen on the the cover were individually made, and then staged together to take one cohesive photo that required minimal editing.

Feeding Them Lies
Feeding Them Lies was a collaborative project about the lies and myths of the food industry. During this project my parter Megan Seirra and I took all original photography, made original illustrations inspired by satire/political comics, and created a custom type face called “Meatface”. The type was created by shaping raw ground hamburger meat into letter forms and glyphs which was then photographed and vectored. Part of the education section of this book we conducted our own guerrilla marketing of sorts by changing labels on products at the store, making new signs, or posting signs for awareness. These were set up, photographed, and left so that the public could find them and become aware of the hypocrisy and myths of the food industry. We also promoted these on Instagram with #feedingthemlies.

Metro Playing Cards
The Metro playing cards were a collaboration between myself and Savannah Gibbs, as well as a crowd source project for and by a non-profit organization. Each illustration used was created by the youth group at the Metro House in St. Petersburg, FL. We wanted to create something that represented the teens and what is important to them and their identity such as their makeup, wardrobe, music, and hobbies. They are a fun loving and energetic group of kids that love to play games; a perfect fit for playing cards.
Trouble Monster's Alphabet
Trouble Monster’s Alphabet is children’s book I have been working on as a personal project. I wanted to combine typography elements with illustration to teach kids the ABC’s with a graphic design twist. I have been drawing these monsters since 2008 and have come back to them through out the years for different projects. The name trouble monster is derived from the term “trouble makers”. These characters create chaos from being naturally curious and not having any self-control, much like kids.
The following are various poster designs I have done during my time at USFSP in the Graphic Design Program. Some of them were for the student AIGA group events, which were styled based on the speaker, their company, or the purpose of their visit. Others were done for assignments. The Yale Poster, designed by using a unique grid based off the Dali Museum windows, and the 16 Candles movie poster remake designed to be minimalistic, but still convey the iconic scenes of the movie.
