The Department of Design Spring Show is an annual exhibition hosted by Sacramento State University which highlights the best work of the graduating seniors as well as many undergraduate students from the programs of Graphic Design, Interior Architecture, and Photography. The design collateral is inspired by the gathering of the three programs, featuring simplified abstract symbols to represent each group within the Department of Design and their coming together to form the yearly exhibition.

The Ghost Town Rebellion is a band from Sacramento, California that defines their music genre as grit rock. The target for this project was to create a hand crafted and gritty visual system using various paper textures to simulate a ‘ghosting’ effect through the typography. The value in this work was developed through the process of physically crafting and experimenting with numerous layers of assorted textural pieces and materials.

Refraction_ is a personal project that acted as a daily exploration into animation within Adobe After Effects. It focuses on the theme of RGB color and the effects that can be created when using it within a work of art. The title of the series is representative of the colored waves of light that occur during refraction. By setting basic guidelines as a foundation such as a color palette, mood, frame rate, and aspect ratio, the main purpose of Refraction_ was to explore, expand, and practice techniques.
