The poster needed to convey a sense of childlike wonder while still conveying informa- tion, appealing to kids who might not yet know how to read as well as their parents. The poster also featured a revised Zoo logo, a bold but simple design conveying a new, improved Zoo.

To complement the photographs I chose to exhibit I created several pieces of collateral, including identification tags for each photo and an “about the artist” introduction. The collateral reflected my design sense, with swirly, organic background elements and clean, playful text.
  9. 9. the purlwise knitter Graphic Design Graphic Design Portfolio Study Portfolio Study The Purlwise Knitter, a hip, urban yarn store in Pacific Heights, wanted a new logo and accompanying bro- chure to help generate new business leads. The client wanted a hip, cute design that would bring in 18-40- year-old women with disposable income, with copy that was friendly but gave off a degree of exclusivity. The resulting logo was friendly & stylized, and the pocket-sized brochure doubled as a small poster.
  10. 10. city of beaverton, oregon Graphic Design/Cartography Graphic Design Portfolio Study Berkeley Geography UC I am a professionally trained cartographer, a niche in design that I am passionate about. In this project, I researched and created a map that clarified a controversial annexation proposal in my hometown, after existing maps proved too confusing. This type of map is called a chloropleth—it uses shades of color and proportional measurements to convey statistical data and variability across a region. Here, blocks of color represent existing county land and planned phases of annexation, while graded circles are proportionate to population. Together, these sets of data effectively communicate relevant details about the city’s plan. The sparsely placed landmarks keep attention on the data and do not convolute the message by adding unnecessary detail.
