Ball State University School of Art Visiting Artists, Designers and Scholars Lecture Series poster design


Design a poster to position throughout campus showcasing 10 artistic disciplines, 13 speakers, bios, dates/times, and locations. It should be eye catching but also informative. The copy cannot be reduced and all details must be well-represented.


Because there is so much information, a unique column-style calendar layout allows for visual chronology. By not using a grid, the reader has to take a moment (but not too much as to irritate) to find where the chronology begins. This gives more exposure to the events as a whole while conveying a feeling of discovery and creative flow indicative of art. The event images are varied and small so a simple black and white color palette brings them into focus and aids readability. Lastly, the white-on-black main title with disjointed letters attracts attention despite a small space.


Augmented Reality Children’s Book

The Planets: An Interactive Journey

Educational picture book for readers K-6


Research, write, and design a book about the planets integrating augmented reality technology that can be printed and distributed for educational purposes using only public domain or license free content.


All of photography used to design this book (and infographics) belong to NASA or the Jet Propulsion Laboratory which falls under the United States Public Domain. Additionally, the AR video content was created by NASA or other non-profit organizations that do not require licensing for educational purposes. The AR support is offered by ZAPPAR who offered a 30 day free membership to create the book and it is free for anyone to view in the ZAPPAR app with no expiration date.

Art Direction

DVD Box Set Packaging
Universal Studios Home Entertainment
Creative Services Art Direction Team

The Catalog Division of the DVD Creative
Services department is the most fun to be a part of because it covers the entire history of the studio. Overseeing teams of designers, we were tasked to direct artful aesthetics, but also, to research all the facets of beloved shows and movies from original photography, production notes, and behind-the-scene stories. The goal was to produce a beautiful physical collection that told a story.

Volunteer Work

Paperback Poetry Books Authored and Illustrated
by 2nd Graders

I was fortunate to work with two second grade classes at Burris Laboratory School to help them create actual paperback books, with the generous cooperation of the BSU School of Art. The students wrote poetry dedicated to a loved one and an accompanying illustration. Students learned how a books are made from concept to completion. Each student was given their own copy to give to the subject of their poem.
