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.
Chronicle Books Fellowship Poster
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.
Postcards were printed to send out to art schools.
Give Books Campaign
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.
Various email and website banners
Postcard iterations I did for an Everlane and Poketo collaboration.

Work I did over the summer of 2016 at Poketo.
RISD Orientation 2016 Branding
"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. The project includes branding, logos, posters, way finding, social media assets, banners, and other design collateral. It was a four month project done in collaboration with May Kodama.
RISD 2017 Yearbook
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.
The Museum of Weather
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.
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.
