Graphic Design Samples
The following is a collection of logo designs created for clients of various sizes and industries. Some serve as the starting point for new branding initiatives, while others represent customer growth into new programs, events, and services.
UNM Graduate Art Association Website and Collateral
Designed from the ground up, the UNM Graduate Art Association identity, website, and marketing collateral serves as part of a newly implemented rebranding and marketing strategy. The campaign brings the GAA in line with other student-led University organizations, heightening awareness of the graduate art program. The new materials serve as informational resources and a way to implement new fundraising initiatives.
BEAMS : Blue Emergency Alert Mobile System
The BEAMS user interface and user experience prototype was created as a course demonstration, providing students with a reference to begin their research into UI/UX design, prototyping, and associated prototyping applications. It is conceptually based on the emergency telephone systems found throughout campuses across the country, with the idea of bringing the emergency support provided by these systems directly to user smart phones as a mobile app. (Note: due to a bug in Adobe’s web cacheing, please run the app twice to get the correct preview of the apps proper animated transitioning.)
Sometime Julie Logo Design and CD Packaging
Logo and debut CD release design for the San Diego, California-based indie-Americana rock band Sometime Julie.
Smart Papers and International Paper Envelope Guides
National Envelope, a wholesale envelope supplier and partner to top paper manufacturers, provides envelope sample guides to resellers in the printing industry. These Smart Papers and International Paper envelope guides act as companion pieces to the manufacturers paper sample guides.
Clark Bros. Capabilities Brochure
The design of the Clark Bros. capabilities brochure, along with a logo design update, serves as the foundation of a company-wide rebranding campaign.
Alleo Research Group
The Alleo logo, stationery, and identity reference guide was created to serve as supplemental design course material, demonstrating to students the creative and technical processes involved in brand design projects.
Pratt Precision Metals
Serving as an educational sample, this project was created as a teacher-lead collaboration with students. Provided with a mock design brief, I work with the class through the many steps of a logo design process and how it can expand into supplemental design materials.
Filling Station Cafe
Filling Station Cafe serves as another classroom demonstration example, this one executed specifically for a logo design course. This project includes the process of custom die cutting as an alternative to the standard rectangular business card.
George Pearl Hall Brochure
The George Pearl Hall brochure was created as demonstration material for students beginning the process of applying grid systems within their design. It also serves as a reference file for those new to page layout design applications.

In collaboration with a colleague specializing in traditional printmaking, suites of custom wedding invitations were designed for customers wanting bespoke handcrafted invites printed in the letterpress and lithographic tradition.
As a professor of graphic design, I help faculty and staff with many departmental design needs. These samples represent promotional projects I volunteered to create in order to lend my support to the College of Fine Arts and in promotion of graphic design course offerings.
Healing Sun is a woman’s boutique specializing in natural products and essential oils that promotes holistic wellbeing. Labels were designed for the various handcrafted oil mixes and supplemental products. Other design services include identity, branding, website, signage, and environmental design for the store space.
Six Flags Bus Wrap Advertisement
The Six Flags bus wrap advertisement campaigns were created to bring awareness to new park attractions and events. These buses traveled throughout the city of Chicago and surrounding suburbs.
The Digital Graphics Primer was initially created to aid customers in the use of digital graphic files. It now serves as an educational resource for students to familiarize themselves with how to create and utilize the large variety of digital file formats. As a follow-up to the graphics primer, the Logo Design and Typography Primers were created to serve as introductory and reference guides for students. They highlight the many aspects of logo design and typography, from best practices to conceptual approaches.
Illustrations, Photography, and Photo Editing
My services as a designer cross many disciplines, with illustration, photography, and photo editing being examples. The following samples were created to complement client design work and educational resource materials.
