A logo I created for a fictional craft beer company. I chose Rad to be made in Burlington VT because of Vermont’s thriving craft beer scene. My approach for the design was to have a laid back style to represent Vermont's culture. Imagery was made in Adobe Illustrator.

UI/UX & RESPONSIVE WEB DESIGN
The Red Barn is one of the top collegiate climbing gyms in Western New York found on RIT's campus. Generally, people who attend have nothing but praise for the Red Barn's facilities and atmosphere. However, they have little online presence and don't offer many resources to new, timid climbers or people who have never been before. We wanted to focus on the less experienced climber, but also provide relevant resources for those who are more familiar with the Red Barn and climbing. This is a responsive website created for optimizing people's user experience and comfortability when utilizing the Red Barn's climbing facilities.

FINE ART, MIXED MEDIA, WOOD BURNING
This project was based off of the film The Beautiful Losers. The film focuses on the careers and work of a collective group of artists. During the 1990s an artistic movement began using D.I.Y aesthetics. Skateboarding graffiti and underground music like punk rock and hip-hop were very influential.

This poster focused on transmitting meaning + visual and verbal synergy. For this project I chose 12 random words to create a poem and then turned the meaning of the poem into a poster. My poem was, “There are thousands wanting only gorgeous pictures, but sordid juices spray delirious whispers of chocolate”. I interpreted this as, abstract art isn't always a classical beautiful picture, but from its imperfections lies beauty in itself.
FINE ART, SAGGAR FIRING
Some pieces I had made back in the day.
