Roles / Co-Founder, Co-Director, Lead Visual Designer
Description/ Project C sits high on the list of things that mean the most to me. During my junior year of college, two friends and I founded Project C, a community multimedia initiative that informs, inspires, and calls its audience to become more aware of positive growth in their community. Project C tells the stories of nonprofit organizations in Athens, Ohio using video, writing and design. It also facilitates fundraising on behalf of the organizations.
Over two years, I managed over 30 Project C members, including the visual design and user experience teams. I'm thrilled to say Project C is now in its fourth year at Ohio University, having involved more than 70 students and raising over $4500 for Athens nonprofits.

Description / I created Form + Functional in 2012 as a place to share my ideas and opinions about a broad range of design and usability topics. So many bloggers focus solely on design or functionality, so I wanted to appeal to an audience who appreciated the importance of both.
I built this site in Drupal and continue to write and photograph for the blog. And of course, guest bloggers are always welcome! Email me :)

Description / As the lead designer on the Ohio.edu website redesign, I worked with a strategist to create three options for homepage wireframes. From there, I built a the selected UI concept, revised with an associate creative director, and designed the home, landing, and content pages. I also led the design for the mobile experience.

Engagement Party Invitations
Description/ An engagement party nestled in the trees of northern Michigan – what better way to represent this than with Jackpine stock and modern-minimal pine tree illustrations. I concepted, designed, sourced the paper and printed these engagement party invitations.
