Website Strategy and Design for Finished Art, Inc.

Objec­tive Fin­ished Art was con­sid­er­ing cre­at­ing a blog, but the com­pany was not sure whether it was worth the effort or how the blog would actu­ally work. Dur­ing some free time, I decided to sit down and think about whether a blog could be a good idea for the com­pany and what ben­e­fits and challenges […]

Ethnographic Study of Art Supply Buying Habits

Overview The pur­pose of this study was to exam­ine the habits of dorm-dwelling stu­dents in search of art/design sup­plies in order to under­stand how impor­tant loca­tion is in rela­tion to price and other con­trib­u­tors to the idea of value. We explored oppor­tu­ni­ties that one store in Savan­nah may have in over­com­ing the dis­ad­van­tage of proximity […]

Building a New Brand

Building a New Brand

Set­ting the Foun­da­tion With my back­ground in Graphic Design, I have designed visual iden­ti­ties for exist­ing brands, but I’ve never had the oppor­tu­nity to develop the frame­work for a new brand from the ground up. At SCAD, I was able to work with five other stu­dents from dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines in a spon­sored col­lab­o­ra­tive design class […]

Coca-Cola Packaging

16 oz PET 4 pk Car­rier I was asked to design graph­ics for a new 16oz 4pk car­rier for the four core Coca-Cola brands. After receiv­ing the die guide, I cut, folded and glued to cre­ate a full-size pro­to­type that I could fit over four 16oz bot­tles. This allowed me to see exactly how the […]

Texting While Driving Infographics

Idea Visu­al­iza­tion The first phase of this research project involved col­lect­ing var­i­ous sta­tis­tics related to tex­ting while dri­ving. After rec­og­niz­ing pat­terns in the data, our team clas­si­fied the infor­ma­tion into seman­ti­cally appro­pri­ate visual mod­els that show rela­tion­ships with mul­ti­vari­ate data. These visual mod­els were pre­sented in a poster.

Working Title Design Launch

Knowledge Sharing Network

Cur­rently, Design Man­age­ment is rep­re­sented so incon­sis­tently that there is both an oppor­tu­nity and a need for Design Man­agers to define our field and chart a course for the pro­fes­sion. The devel­op­ment of a cen­tral net­work entity is the per­fect way to allow Design Man­agers to share their knowl­edge, projects and expe­ri­ences. This forum of […]

What’s Under the Kitchen Sink?

Overview In the twenty-first cen­tury, orga­nized liv­ing spaces are more preva­lent than ever. Orga­ni­za­tional sys­tems have been designed and redesigned in an attempt to make spaces more accom­mo­dat­ing. The scope for this project was to step back and ana­lyze why cur­rent sys­tems are not work­ing to their full poten­tial and cre­ate a solu­tion that would […]
