Design work from courses for the Communication Design major at Washington University in St. Louis.
Tasked with creating a brand that fills a gap in the market, I developed Herbose, a system of herbal remedies for chronic but non-life threatening afflictions such as acid reflux, insomnia, anxiety, fatigue, and tension headaches. Struck by the prevalence of reported side effects of prescription drugs, I conceived of products that would seek to ameliorate common maladies in a more preventative, holistic, and natural way. Departing from clichéd associations with herbs (hippies, incense, folklorish practices), the brand seeks to fill a niche with a modern, customizable, and therapeutic approach to treatment. The brand is named Herbose, a melding of the words "herb" and "verbose," and includes tinctures (alcohol and herb concentrate) and dried herbs for infusions.
Typefaces: Courier Prime, Ingra
Boxes for tinctures
Each infusion or tincture box would come with an accompanying card with a set of directions and health benefits of the herb.
This is a sample business card for an herbalist. Consultations with local herbalists would be optional add-ons to an Herbose subscription.
Snapshot of a Florentine Street
Poster making meaning out of a street in Florence, Italy.
A tagline on the website of the Uffizi museum in Florence, Italy reads: "Where the long lines are almost as famous as the masterpieces." With this in mind, I designed an app meant to be used while waiting in line and visiting the galleries. With curated, customizable itineraries, a search feature, maps of the museum, a calendar of events, and a streamlined way to buy tickets, the app seeks to alleviate boredom, assist in navigation, speed up wait times, and encourage attendance at future museum events. Detailed descriptions of each artwork augment the visitor experience beyond the gallery placards.

Assigned a concert featuring Beethoven's Second Symphony, I designed an exclusively typographic poster describing the score's second movement. Scale shifts call to mind lumbering base notes contrasted with the repetition of a tinkling flute. The color scheme represents Beethoven's sited pastoral influences.
