A few of the exciting media projects I've most enjoyed working on:
A feature-length profile of Jean Lin and her just-launching design collective, Colony, a shared showroom for independent designers on Canal Street in Lower Manhattan.
Originally published on the cover of the C77 Design Daily (Vol. 1, Issue 2) which was distributed during New York Design Week 2014. (Images by Core77).
A multimedia editorial project looking at gender through the design of domestic spaces, experiences, and relationships in New York City and London through long-form, edited interviews with women practitioners. I also designed the logo and set up the project's Tumblr.
Recipient of a 2014 NYSCA Independent Projects grant and one of ten editorial projects selected for Abitare's online editorial residency.
Served on the curatorial committee to help create an art show, design mart, and panel discussion at New York's Eyebeam. Edited a special issue of Womanzine (inspired by the Emoji issue we published in March 2013) with pieces by Roxane Gay, Clive Thompson, Jenna Wortham, and more.
Highlight: Clive Thompson telling me IRL that I was a good editor. I had read his work for many, many years, and it was a thrill to get to edit him.
A feature-length look at how Fort Greene, Brooklyn's cultural community has flourished by leveraging its legacy of artistic production in the face of intensifying real estate pressure and outside influence and interest. For a series on Naturally Occurring Cultural Districts for Urban Omnibus.
Created an interactive map of local landmarks using Google Maps Engine.
An experimental space that provided more than 1,600 digital journalists an immersive learning experience with the latest technology and innovators in the journalism industry.
I invited startups, major tech companies, and mission-driven projects to engage, teach, and even user-test their products on the crowd at ONA12 and ONA13. I took The Midway from conception to a live event, including development of its logo and graphic materials.
Worked as the production editor for a 60-page supplement to Metropolis magazine's April 2012 issue, a look at Steelcase, an innovative furniture design company, on its 100th anniversary.
Working both with track changed Word documents and directly in InDesign, I made the last pre-print editorial decisions and oversaw copy editing, quality control, scheduling, and proofreading.
Though my first job was as a graphic designer, these days I mostly use my design skills as a complement to my work (see above). Sometimes, though, I put on that hat for an entire project:
I recently designed a new logo and corresponding visual identity for Keystone Millwork, an architectural millwork company in Texas.
I created the identity and design for my wedding, including a save-the-date animated gif and invitations (with the floral pattern from my wedding dress).
Twice a year, I lay out the newsletter of the Gustav Mahler Society of New York. I cleaned up the design when I took on the project and continue to improve its look.
