Alexis Rockman is an accomplished surrealist painter, and it was my mission to advertise one of his lectures to display a sampling of Rockman's work to my audience. I chose a parallelogram to frame portions of the artist's work within the poster. This ensured that cropped pieces of the artist's paintings were not misrepresented to mimic their entirety. The eye is attracted to the unconventional crop and the mind is certain that the pieces they are observing are but a sample of the fuller, greater work of the artist. This shape, combined with the vertical aspect of the poster, lends a kinetic quality that guides the onlooker from imagery to type. As a final binding touch to the subject matter, the posters were printed on gessoed canvas paper.

Oftentimes my generation struggles with deciding on a major and/or career path. You are expected to decide and commit, essentially putting all your eggs in one basket, in a short span of time. Sometimes this can lead to feelings of uncertainty and regret.
This concept is represented in this piece most notably by the dangly thing on the cap you wear while graduating (that's what that's called right... the dangly thing?) You are thrown into the real world, dangling, nervous, bushy-tailed and bright-eyed only to find that the real world isn't always served on a silver platter (cue moments of panic and regret).
You might have to back-track, or even start over before you find your way. However, if you find yourself dangling with a dumb-ass look on your face after graduation, don't fret... you will figure it out.

Fossil has always been one of my favorite companies and not just because I love watches, but also because they always have a sleek, colorful design. I showcase, within this book, a series of Fossil watches categorized into sections. Each section is broken up with witty quotes about time and pictures showcasing the watches and their detail in actual size.
Dietrich Wegner is a professor and local artist in the Edinboro, PA area. His main concerns with his current portfolio website were the navigation of the artwork sections and consistent focus on the work. The goals for the team were to redesign his site with these concerns in mind as well as developing a fully working site that Dietrich could easily maintain himself. He described his ideal site as "clean, simple, and sophisticated" a basis from which the team began working on the visual design.
