An ongoing series of illustrated portraits of various writers and artists from time. A dichotomy is represented by the combination of the ornate portrait style and the superimposed images from their works, done in a more modernist style. More to come soon, as well as prints in my shop.
A personal illustration that I turned into several products to sell. A run of stickers has sold about 250 units and a second production is planned. Also planned are enamel pins coming before the end of the year. Further applications of the design and being planned based on popularity.
Visual identity redesign for the Texas Astronomical Society. Based at the University of Texas in Dallas, the T.A.S Serves to promote the discovery of space, observation, star watching and all cosmic-related fields to the entire state of Texas (although primarily the northeast region). However, even though the society’s aims were to promote this learning, their public image seemed to be stuck in the early-90s, effectively becoming less inviting. Due to my interest in space and astronomy, and because ultimately the aim of the society is education, I decided to pitch this work to the society for free. The main logo features refined, classical type, paired with a rosette image. The rosette was created from 8 circles, representing the orbits of the planets, and a central star created from the circles’ overlaps representing the sun. Along with the main visual identity, advertisement boards were created to promote the existence of the society and encourage people to join, as well as advertising various stargazing and astronomy events open to the public. Every month, the Society produces The Spectrum, an astronomical newsletter updating members on previous and upcoming events, astronomy news, research papers and writings from other members. To help maintain a cohesive and total brand, The Spectrum was also updated to make it more of a magazine and less of a pamphlet.
An ongoing project that started almost a year ago. I created the Dallas badge as a personal project at first, but after gauging interest within the Dallas area, a production of Dallas badge stickers and t-shirt was created. Over 300 Dallas stickers have been produced and the t-shirt design had a successful run on Cotton Bureau, as well as an initial run in my shop. The Dallas design has been running as a Snapchat city filter for several months by now. The Baltimore, Taos and Austin badges were created as a way of expanding the project, and all have been made into Snapchat city filters as well. More badges for cities across the nation and the world are in production right now.
An ongoing series of illustrations of state and national parks around the US.
A self initiated campaign to restart interest in space exploration and science funding. America was build upon the legacy of pioneers daring to go out and explore the lands. Now that humanity has conquered our planet, it's our duty to reach for the rest. As Americans, we must channel the bravery of our founders and dare to explore new horizons.
Over the course of 30 days, I developed a daily logo as an exercise in quick idea development and execution.
A collection of editorial illustrations created for The ReMarker, 13-time CSPA Gold Crown winning newspaper of the St. Mark's School of Texas. During my time on the paper, I went from staff artist to graphics director to creative director, and led a team of artist to create illustrations and designs for the monthly-run paper.
