Based on the text by Georges Perec, "The Page", this book was designed to explain the meaning of his words through typography and imagery. Typography is used in a way that creates texture and movement while bringing Perec's words to life. Though The Page can be interpreted in many ways, I have decided to represent it in a way that is straight forward and logical through specific text formatting. I have chosen to use complex typographic images to offset the described simplicity.
"The Page" was also translated into a mobile application meant to serve as an interactive productivity tool for word processing, sketching, photography, and sharing.
This concept comes from the ideas that Perec set forth in his text; the possibilities are endless when given a blank page.
"Object Translations" is a two part study, resulting in two books bound by hand. Book one is titled "Object Translations" and book two is titled "Skeleton Key".
"Object Translations" is an object study of a single skeleton key. Through different processes, I discovered how to look at the same object in several different ways. As I used different mediums to document the object, I noticed how different it looked each time I studied it. By representing the object in different styles, It opened my eyes to how different you can see the world when you reject your prior notions of an idea or object and free your mind. It's all on how you look at something; nothing is static.
"Skeleton Key" is second study where I tell the story of the object itself and how it came to be, (which is just as important as its form and make-up.) With different representations of the key itself used throughout the spreads, each composition explains something about the skeleton key and what it means to me and its place in this world.
TOOTH CREATIONS BRANDING
TOOTH CREATIONS BRANDING
This project was a rebranding for Tooth Creations, a family owned company and laboratory that specializes in dental work. The new brand was set in place to expand the company's client base across a larger area while making sure a sense of family and tradition were represented. This is one of the last dental laboratories to use traditional methods while integreting up and coming,industry approved technology. A post card listing the lab's prices was sent out to both current clients and potential clients.
Potential clients recieved an envelope (made from recycled materials) with a mini business card, a hand crafted note from the owner and lead technician, and the main lab services postcard. Both the postcard and introduction packages were labeld with foil address labels and blue matching stamps.
