As part of my fellowship, all the fellows were tasked to create a poster that would campaign for next years fellows. I decided to start with a simple book and scan the edges of the pages. I really wanted to play with the form and bring out the essence of book without instantly recognizing it as a book. As part of Chronicle Books saying, "see things differently", I want future fellows to catch a glimpse of what working at Chronicles is like.
Every year, Chronicle Books updates their branding to keep the image fresh and relevant. My design was chosen to be the 2018 brand that will be used company wide as well as in marketing materials.
I had the privilege of designing RISD's 2017 yearbook. The theme was Connections and Conversations. Every student had a full body photo with an object of their choice (people brought everyday items, food, pets, and even people). A thin line connected across all pages of the book along with abstracted color illustrations. The result was fun and whimsical with students writing messages next to their photo page. The cover also folded out into a double-sided poster.
This books was designed in collaboration with May Kodama. Portraits photographed by Lizzie Gourlay. Illustrations by Jean Wei.
"Hi" is a branding project done for RISD's Center for Student Involvement (RISD CSI) and was used in RISD's 2016 Summer and Fall Orientation program for Freshman and Transfer students.

This is a video that experiments with motion, texture, and type as image and the project was also to learn the program, Blender 3D. It is a space to play with typography when not in a 2-dimensional space and see how graphic design can work when using a tool that is not meant for graphic designers.
During my internship at Poketo, I was able to gain hands on experience at how designers worked with other facilities of a company and how a designer fits into a business. I worked closely with Senior Graphic Designer, Sally Alvarado, as well as the Art Director and Co-Founder, Angie Myung, on proposals for product lines, making patterns and look books, as well as create emails and website banners. Photographs were taken by Emily Suzanne.
This is a 5 week branding project of a hypothetical museum: The Museum of Weather, a museum that demonstrates the science behind different weather conditions. The museum is meant for young children and families. The colors are divided into seasons as well as primary and secondary color sets that is meant for a varied and flexible system that is similar to the weather.
What would commercial space travel look like in the 1800s? Based on the 18th century movie space adventure movie,Voyage Dans La Lune, this travel guide is a pseudo marketing campaign for commercial space flight. The project had a 5 week turn around that included designing a brochure, ticket, stamps, and postcards.
1) An infographic about Greece that was done with markers. It was a test to create intricately detailed graphs with a lot of information using a "rough" medium. The results turned out unexpected and would not have been able to be replicated by the computer.
2) This is a data visualization of three trips I take starting from my home in Providence, Rhode Island to 1) My Studio, 2) My home in California, and 3) Helsinki, Finland. It includes things I say throughout my trip (including a phone call to my father), how I spend my time on the plane, coffee breaks, music I listen to, how many times I look at my phone, and other routine activities that occur when I travel.
