Between the whirlwind of finishing school and the glory of summer in Chicago, a lot of work I was really excited to share slipped my mind, I hope to catch up a bit!
For my bookbinding final I created an edition of six of this small book about pancakes. A collection of recipes and antectdotes, this personal project is a joyful celebration of the sweet family my parents built. View it at
Behold, the power of the internet. This spring I worked on a logo for London-based florist Sarah Purchase. It was a lot of fun, and I'm grateful they found me!
I've worked with the friendly folks at bake for a few years now. They make really excellent traditional American desserts with no unnecessary frills. Earlier this summer we worked on some fun lettered illustrations to print on tshirts and totebags. These are for sale at the bakery, be sure to have a jam scone for me if you stop in.

An addition to Grip's identity system developed for Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School (BZAEDS for short) on the north side of Chicago, this illustrated mascot and custom lettered solution was a really fun project to work on. It was important to make the eagle friendly and approachable to the school's younger student while establishing a legitimate mascot for the older students' athletic teams.
Submission for STA's student scholarship competition (type as meta communication). I explored so many concepts and arrived here. This piece was added to the collection of the Chicago Design Archive.
The line comes from Mumford & Son's song "Awake My Soul." Today is the day you become a fan.
This concept wasn't chosen (sad face), but it was such a fun project to conceive and execute during my summer at BMDllc.
So this is in no way a recent project. Back in the spring of 2009, two dear friends were about to burst with newborns. Both ladies served as mentors and friends, and the impending arrival of their daughters was so exciting. Because I respond best to projects I can invest myself in, I decided to overlap a semester final with my "Welcome to the world little girls!"
Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown has long been a favorite in my family, and it was a joy to revisit. It's in no way a portfolio-quality piece, but a personal one I wanted to keep track of.
