The Boston Globe


For six months I did a co-op at Boston Globe Media Partners as a Brand Marketing Designer. I worked with a small marketing team to create print, digital, and on-site promotional materials.

To advertise a virtual cocktail class hosted by Boston.com, I made an instagram ad, a facebook ad, and a video slide.

I made ads for GlobeDocs events that were printed in The Boston Globe's newspaper, as well as created weekly GlobeDocs subscriber emails using HTML.

To promote a vitual town hall for Boston students, I made a series of digital ads that appeared on The Boston Globe's website.

I designed a background screen for panelists to sit in front of at a Globe event.

The Boston Globe has a section on its site as well as two newsletters dedicated to cannabis related news stories. I designed a set of stickers promoting these newsletters that were distributed at the Northeast Cannabis Business Conference.

Mediator



Mediator Management Group LLC is a small company based in Troy, NY who hired me to design a logo as well as business cards and merchandise. Mediator is named after the British warship HMS Mediator, and the client requested that the logo and branding reflect that naval heritage.

Abbastanza


Abbastanza is a start-up based in Flagstaff, AZ that provides fitness classes and other health services through a body positive perspective. I worked alongside a web developer to create Abbastanza's website, newsletter, and online store, and also designed Abbastanza's logo, Instagram ads, and merchandise.

Magazine Spreads


Artistry Magazine is Northeastern University's arts publication. I was provided a written article and created illustrations as well as the spread design for the print magazine.

The Avenue is Northeastern University's fashion and culture magazine. I was provided written articles as well as photographs and designed spreads to go in the print magazine.

Book Design




I formatted the novel Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and the play Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller.   After designing both books as a series, I had them published in one volume with coordinating covers.

I set Cat's Cradle in 12 pt Mrs. Eaves (with 14 pt leading and a -10 tracking). In the chapter title pages, I added a small caps treatment to first line and the chapter title (which also had a -200 tracking).

I set Death of a Salesman in 11 pt Adobe Text Pro (with 13.2 pt leading). I added a margin between the characters and their dialogue, and set the running heads in 9 pt italics.

I also worked on a picture book by formatting The Nursery Alice (the abridged version of Alice in Wonderland) by Lewis Carroll and illustrated by John Tenniel.   Later I printed out the book and bound it using saddle stitching.

I set the book in Bodoni 72, with 11 pt font and 14 pt leading. I added color to the pages by using purple for the chapter titles and editing the black illustrations to be gold.

Fun Home Poster


I made a poster advertising the play Fun Home by Lisa Kron and Jeanine Tesori.

I began by taking photos of a model wearing men's dress shoes while standing next to women's sneakers. From the photoshoot I chose this photo because of its carpeted domestic background.

Next I used Adobe Photoshop to edit the photo. I enlargened the men's shoes and made the women's shoes pink to match the model's socks. I edited the model's feet and legs to make them appear smaller and more child-like, then I adjusted the lighting of the photo.

I finished the poster by adding the title in Adobe Caslon Pro.
