This custom sloth baby shower invitation is inspired by my client's favorite animal and her love of bright colors.
SDSU Holiday Collection
The 2017 SDSU Holiday Collection showcases the SDSU Bookstore's merchandise in a fun and festive style. I worked with our photographer to arrange products in precarious positions for this campaign, as well as designed emails for digital marketing.
The 2016 SDSU Bookstore's "Out of this World Sale" is inspired by the world's renewed interest in space exploration.
As the lead designer for this project, I was responsible for all design assets including the print, production and installation of signage. Marketing assets consist of display windows, tall signs, stanchions, fliers, mezzanine banners as well as digital screens, splash pages and email marketing for the web.

Snow Globe Display
I designed and built this center display for the 2016 SDSU Bookstore Holiday Campaign. The snow globe was made completely in-house, with all objects cut and assembled by hand.
The snow globe and palm trees were made out of foam core, vinyl, and paper. To add lights, I drilled holes into the foam core and secured the bulbs in place before covering them with a backing. This project was challenging, fun, and sometimes frustrating. Luckily I was able to collaborate with my manager, Ricardo Rojo, to problem solve the trickier parts of snow globe construction.

This project was commissioned as a gift to Station 57 of the Sacramento City Fire Department. My clients wanted to pay tribute to the station motto, "Soldiers of the South Pacific," by recreating Iron Maiden's "The Trooper" with the iconic Eddie depicted as a firefighter.
I studied Station 57's turnouts carefully in order to recreate them as accurately as possible. Eddie, his tools and the American flag were all drawn by hand and vectorized in Adobe Illustrator.

Arts Alive Benches
This bench design, created as part of an Arts Visibility Campaign for San Diego State University, features an interactive puzzle-like pattern that invites the user take a closer look. These benches give the user a pattern to interact with, which helps them relax as they take a break from their busy schedule. The design represents the unique, yet similar, struggles and experiences each university student undergoes while obtaining a degree. All the lines come together to form a complex pattern, much like the way individual students at SDSU form a strong academic community.
Role: Lead Designer • Painters: Elizabeth Brozek, Adrienne Stefano, Robert Felizardo, Steven Baquial, Briana Connolly & Erin Cameron
