DANTE'S INFERNO: STONE OVEN PIZZA PUB
Dante's Inferno is a project completely fabricated by myself. The assignment was to choose an area of design and complete a comprehensive project. I chose to undertake creating a branding and identity package for a stone oven pizza pub. The deliverables for the project include logo development, microwbrew labeling, a promotional poster, social media campaign, identity book, and supporting printed collateral.
WEGMANS & AMERICAN PACKAGING CORP. DESIGN CHALLENGE
In this multidisciplinary project, graphic design, industrial design, and packaging science students came together to rebrand various Wegmans food market items. Our Project: barbeque sauce. This project is competition–based, and sponsored by Wegmans. I served as team leader for the project, and our group ended up winning the competition.

POSITIVE NEGATIVE MAGAZINE
Positive Negative magazine is an annual publication created in the winter quarter's editorial class. The project is a multidisciplinary showcase of photography and design. I was fortunate to have all four of my spreads chosen for the final print, and I was also asked to create the interior covers, symbols for the middle division of the magazine, and a thank you poster for those who donated money to production. Shown here are the interior covers, interior symbols, thank you poster typography (inspired by the handywork of Adam Hayes), and two of the four articles.
Magazine released Fed 25th, 2012.
I have been a member of the Reporter Magazine team for one year. Reporter magazine is the nation's only full color weekly student magazine, and recent recipient of the pacemaker award in the 'best overall' category. The experience has been very beneficial to my design work in general, as I have noticed a significant increase in my typographic skills. The 'Rings' page of the magazine typically shows the personality of the magazine, and has been the most popular page for many years. *Covers designed by others, except for the cats cover (which was stopped at press, not the first time this has happened...)
WWII TECHNOLOGY IPAD APP
This application was created using, Quark Express 9: App Studio, a newly released plug–in for the quark publication suite. I also had the benefit of learning Adobe inDesign's newly released plug–in for application design. Through this experience I became much more familiar with layout design for tablets.
Illustration is one of the things that sets me apart as a graphic designer. I have a love for typography and sleek branding, but my illustration is where I feel the most free to be wierd, and do as I please. Featured here are personal illustrations as well as works for print publications, and various other applications. I generally work with Adobe Illustrator, sometimes implementing outlines from photoshop.

CORPORATE BRANDING/INFORMATION DESIGN/BRAND DEVELOPMENT
These are various projects I have created for several different types of applications. The first being the large scale dry-erase menu boards at J&L's pizzeria in Fairport, NY. The client wished to have a bigger, more legible menu. They also wanted the menu to be easily adjusted. After tossing ideas out such as velcro, tape and other intrusive options, we decided to go for dry-erase. After researching different papers we made our decision and the menu boards have going strong for almost a year and a half.
Other projects include brand development for a medical image data company HealthTech Imaging, in which logos, multi-use web banners, and a website were created. Also, brand development for Chris Wells Metalsmith, including an identity, as well as sophisticated and minimal stationary.
