Here are some screenshots from my first official launch as a professional designer @WeberShandwick. I designed and concepted this Facebook Tab for the @RadioShack #SchoolOfSmart Fall campaign—intended to help smartphone users determine their mobile lifestyle, and match them with the three best possible phones for their usage.
A Good Critique
In a perfect world, a good critique would consist of a completely objective suggestion, unbiased by personal desire or stylistic tendency, that is intended to further the probability of successful communication of the content.

More to come.
These hand drawn letterforms were created during a participatory (conditional) design workshop at MICA. Each individual letter was passed around an auditorium, allowing every student in the senior class of 2012 to participate in the drawing.
The time has finally come for me to begin researching and developing my final independent study at MICA. I’ve decided to focus on exploiting Hobo culture of the American Great Depression by utilizing a faux “branded” survival kit as a teaching vessel. Let me begin the process with an image of the items collected so far.
I just walked into a record store called Sound Garden in Baltimore, and was surprised to spot a colorful album cover with a custom typeface I drew last spring. Pretty cool, pretty random.
Here is the final, complete version of the BAM: Next Wave Festival newsprint publication.
It feels great to have finally completed this; it’s a fairly old project that never went into production. League Quarterly is a news/culture rag geared towards world unification through technology, psychology, and science.
This is a poster for a pop up store, called Pure Power, that sells organic LED lighting.
