In my first typography class we were asked to create magazine layouts for the cover and centerfold. I chose BBC's Music Magazine with Josh Groban as the feature. This is not my original piece as I decided to completely re-design this after I graduated from college. I do very much like how this one turned out.

This was one of my favorite class projects where we were asked to design a Video/Computer game or DVD box/jacket. I really liked the theme of this computer game and thought it would be fun to re-design the existing box and make it more intriguing and less cheesy.

I got the opportunity to design my best friend's bridal shower invites. Her theme was Pixar's "Up". (Please forgive me, I omitted private info like phone numbers and addresses and added a watermark to prevent my design being used by others.)
My friend wanted everyone who attended the shower to give her their favorite recipe so I also designed these adorable recipe cards for her to keep. (watermark also included)
As an extra gift for my friend, I made here these matching Thank You cards to send out after the shower.
Business Card I designed for my friend. She just graduated with a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. She told me she wanted a design that included a tree, flowers, and/or birds. I secretly designed the tree in the image of a brain, since she's now a therapist.

Victoria's Secret PINK Website home page - We were instructed to design a website layout for a company of our choosing. For this I went with a 'sweatpants' theme, since that is what is most popular among the PINK collection. If you have ever bought PINK sweatpants, this will all look very familiar to you.

This is a brochure I created to positively encourage adoption. The green square would be on the back and the pictures of cute kids would fold to be on the front. the words on the sides actually interlock and form a heart which together reads "Transformed by Love".

Adoption Brochutre (inside) - This is the spread inside the brochure. It gives a couple successful stories of adoption, a poem, and brief description of the importance of adoption. Once again, meant to be positive, not guilt someone into adopting.

If I were to design a cover for this magazine, I would design it as such.
