Maine College of Art is a fully accredited, degree-granting art college in the city of Portland, Maine.
As a junior student at MECA, I worked collaboratively on a team of seven design majors and Pentagram’s Eddie Opara to create a logo for MECA. As a senior student, I completed an internship in the Marketing & Communications department and assisted in building an identity and encompassing applications.
I now work as the Digital Media Specialist & Assistant Designer at MECA. I am in charge of the digital presence: social media, website, email marketing. I also collaborate with the senior designer and project coordinators around the college to develop and execute marketing campaigns and visual components ranging in size, scope, and complexity.
In early 2016, I worked closely with EriDesign, web design and app development firm located in Boston, MA, for MECA's website re-design.

Recently, I have delved into Scandinavian folklore. The personalities and actions of its mythical creatures are fascinating to me. These desires, combined with an interest in branding, led me to imagine a dinner theatre called Folkesagn. Folkesagn hosts performances based on Scandinavian folklores and serves Scandinavian cuisine.
Within the identity, I explore folklores being retold over generations and morphing within that time, along with the plays being communicated through abstraction. By creating and establishing a visual language and guidelines, the pieces of the identity for my dinner theatre will be cohesive and evoke a sense of visual storytelling.
“Casco Bay Lines is a ferry system that provides year-round passenger, freight, postal and vehicle ferry service to the islands of Casco Bay from Portland, Maine.”
The current brochure for the ferry schedules is static and hard to read. Redesigning the visual language, the ferry schedules are now much clearer and easier to navigate through. Using an icon system, I provide the new visitors to the islands to see what activities are available on each island.
Along with the brochure, a cell phone app was created to provide an interactive schedule, see route delays, find out the weather, tides, times for the sunset and sunrise, and an interactive “island match” feature to figure out what destination would be the best fit for the visitor based on their preferred activities.
Peaks Island: Overheard, Discovered, and Perceived is a series of four books documenting my different trips to Peaks Island, Maine. Using the elements of photographs and recorded conversations that I saw and overheard allows me to exemplify the life of the island.
The series plays with experimental design, the idea of “overhearing” and pixellation: if you’re focusing on a conversation, will you truly realize the image in front of you?, and connections through timestamps of the photographs and conversations.
