As a communications associate for ISPU, I created this infographic using Canva to display the impact the organization made in various areas over the past year. Featured both in a national mailing and in the annual report, this display allowed donors to see what their money helped accomplish in 2016.
Social Media Graphics
As a communications associate for ISPU, I created these Facebook graphics using Adobe Photoshop for our mid-year fundraising appeal. These graphics elicited a positive reaction from many people and reached a wide audience. The first reached over 3,000 people, the second over 70,000, and the third over 10,000, helping us reach our $75,000 fundraising goal.
These flyers were created for events hosted byExceptions Journal, a creative journal that publishes work by individuals with visual disabilities. Exceptions is highly involved in the MSU and Lansing communities and hosts biannual events to celebrate inclusivity in the arts. As the Exceptions managing editor, I created these visually appealing flyers in Adobe InDesign and Photoshop in order to advertise for these events.
As an editor for agnès films, I worked with director Alexandra Hidalgo to promote Vanishing Borders, a documentary that tells the story of four immigrant women living in New York City. These flyers were created in Adobe Photoshop and InDesign for Vanishing Borders screenings in Ohio. I designed two versions of the flyer: a color version for online promotion and a black and white version for print purposes.
As a web editor and social media specialist for agnès films, I presented this research poster for MSU's 2015 University Undergraduate Research and Arts Fair (UURAF). This poster catalogued the yearlong social media work I had done for agnesfilms.com on Twitter and Facebook. I created the poster in Adobe InDesign and Photoshop, making sure the design was consistent with the branding of our website.
Book Covers & Interiors
As a freelance designer for Grailstone Press, I created the following book cover and interior designs in Adobe Photoshop and InDesign. In these designs, I applied principles of design and color theory that I had learned in past courses to create cohesive, visually appealing layouts.
In a print design class, I designed a magazine cover (top right), timeline (top left), and cover story spread (bottom) for an article topic of my choosing. I chose to center my design around a study abroad trip to London and Paris that I had just returned from. In Paris, I conducted a participatory memory research project focused on the physical spaces created to memorialize Princess Diana. The photographs in the cover story spread are my own, images of messages for Princess Di left by admirers at the Flamme de la Liberté. All designs were created in Adobe InDesign.
