Maryville University 2013 Graphic Design Senior Show

This year, I was asked by my teachers to design Maryville University’s 2013 Graphic Design Senior Show signage. Every year, the graduating seniors of the program get to show off their portfolios. I chose to illustrate type in a decorative and fun way to create an inviting and intriguing display. I first sketched out my design, taking reference from Victorian era typography and signage. I wanted to create an energetic, lively design with movement. The curling banners and ornate designs in the back aid to this, as well as the showy illustrated type especially in the “w”. I spent a lot of time on the refinement of the letters and layout. I was challenged with making the 3 connect to 201 and the overall weight and balance of the piece. Overall, I am very happy with the way this turned out, although it took quite a lot of time out of my other projects. This graphic is for the postcards, however, I still have to create the poster.

AIGA Vote Poster

This poster was designed for my student AIGA chapter at Maryville University. We were asked to design posters that would incite people to go out and vote in the 2012 elections this year. I chose to take a more dramatic approach by combining a quote from Alexander Hamilton into the shape of a swastika. By doing so, I hoped to reference the potential dangerous outcomes that could develop if citizens do not vote or do not choose their candidates based on facts but rather on smear campaigns that use fear to promote their agendas. Voters need to be informed before they vote because an ignorant vote can be just as dangerous as not voting at all.
