Wildcat Handbook

2017 & 2018

The Wildcat Handbook is a guide distributed to each incoming student at Davidson College during orientation. The Handbook helps newcomers familiarize themselves with fellow first-year students, resources on and around campus, and the traditions of the school.

I led creative direction, layout, content sourcing, and copy updates for the 2017 and 2018 handbooks with revisionary oversight from the production advisor. 

Made in Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe InDesign.
Iconography was sourced from free graphic design resource sites, then modified to fit the purposes of the project. Factual information and photographs were provided by departmental sites and contacts, library archives, and incoming students at Davidson College.

Precinct 206 Democrats

While attending Davidson College, I was commissioned by the local democratic precinct to create a logo and a number of branded deliverables for their organization.

Diversity & Inclusion Graphics

2019

As part of a freelance project with a diversity & inclusion consultancy, I created a set of vector illustrations that would live on the company site’s services page.

Knowing how little diversity is represented in typical corporate stock imagery, I designed a set of characters that embodied a larger range of skin tones, hair types, body types, and dis/abilities.

Hiatus

2018

To pass time while recovering from elective surgery in 2018, I created a poster in Photoshop every day for six weeks.

Made in Adobe Photoshop. Select quotes are attributed to Gilles Deleuze (center paragraph) and Jenny Odell’s How to Do Nothing (left and right verticals).

Dear [Decontextualized] Data

2019

I culminated 2019 by creating a set of visualizations that told a story of my year through disjointed datasets. All data were sourced retroactively. Some were passively gathered throughout the year by financial trackers and health apps, while others were the direct product of my own habits: fervidly leaving digital trails in calendars and logging my media consumption each month.

I omitted select metrics on the graphs to reclaim control over the numerical narrative that is usually determined by the corporate bodies that harvest our online footprints. In the data economy, decontextualization is a tool of subversion that obscures the profit potential of our behavioral metrics.

This project is inspired by the eponymous Dear Data, a series of analog data visualizations published by renowned information scientists Giorgia Lupi and Stefanie Posavec.

Three of the original six visualizations are shown here.
