Miscellaneous

To infinity and beyond.

During my senior year at Northwestern, I was lucky enough to land a design internship at SPACE, a new music venue in Evanston. After school, I continued to do freelance work for them, and after 5 years, I’d designed thousands of print pieces. Most of the work was promotional postcards for upcoming shows. I would get a spreadsheet with just the band names and show dates and scour the internet for assets and any sense of the band’s aesthetic. A fun design challenge for sure, and a great way to practice building a look and feel quickly and with minimal resources.

Designs that never saw the light of day.

Sometimes you work on a project that doesn’t make it out the door for whatever reason. Here’s a couple that I had fun with regardless.

Free love. Free work.

This project was one of many I did in college for free. The student theatre community at Northwestern is one of the strongest in the world, with hundreds of student produced shows a year, all needing marketing, of course. I still get compliments on this design I did for a production of Hair (that I also performed in). It was one of the first projects I was really proud of and I’m touched it still resonates with people to this day.
