I interrupt regularly scheduled programming to let you know that, as part of a class project, three of my images will displayed in the student gallery at Loyola. The Why Art Matters exhibit opens this Thursday evening. One of the photos I’ll be showing is below. I also made the logo for the exhibit (above). As a class, we attempted to show why art matters to the Loyola community and to each of the class members. There is also an interactive display where exhibit-goers can express why art matters to them. So, go! Express yourselves (:

For more information, you can see the full flier (designed by moi) here, or read about the exhibit on the Department of Fine & Performing Arts’ blog here.


No! Don’t actually stab the books!! But DO learn how to make your own books, using this way cool stab binding technique. The most recent awesome thing I’ve been learning during my internship at EPPS. We had so much fun making these that they’ve decided to offer a one day workshop, December 18th (psst… they make great holiday gifts!). Um, and you get to design your cover using vintage wood type and then print it on the fancy old Vandercook. Am I the only one drooling here?


{another class project}

Classes started a few weeks ago. Between classes and interning, I may not have as much photography to post here so I thought I’d supplement with some of my class projects. I have no idea what else to do with them, so why not, right? Feel free to leave honest comments – I’m always looking to make things better and I am very aware that my design skills and style need honing. Hope you enjoy these little graphic design installments!

Well, actually, while I was on vacation I found out that I won TWO contests! Not too shabby, eh? The first was a design contest for the cover of Loyola University Chicago’s continuing education catalogs for Fall 2010 and Spring 2011. Continuum is in it’s 5th year, so I decided to focus on that milestone in my design. Here are the winning entries:

And here is the final version of the Fall/Winter catalog, with Loyola’s changes (the Spring version has not been finalized yet):

Tomorrow I’ll tell you more about the other contest I won. It was more of a luck-of-the-draw type thing (:


I had a lot of fun doing engagement photos for Taylor & Kyle, so I was thrilled when Taylor asked me to design their save-the-date postcards using one of the images from their session. And now the cat is out of the bag – I do custom designs upon request! Let me know if your interested in hearing more about my graphic design services… including logos, save-the-dates and other cards, etc…

This particular design is a 5.5×4 postcard so it’s easier and cheaper to mail, and is more environmentally friendly (no envelope!).
