As a freelance designer for Daniel House Studio, I work as their Production Manager. At the end of 2017 we launched their first quarterly issue for Daniel House Studios. I was in charge of the layout and content design, some photography and print production. Below are some spreads of this issue.
These were digital prints of about 300. As demand grows, we will move on to offset printing.
Collaborating with Peter Spalding from Daniel House Studios, I turned his fine art illustrations into textiles on tableware products. Extensive research was also done to find paper packaging manufacturers who would print tableware products with a bleed.
Illustrations and Sketches
Portland. My homeland. I've incorporated little details unique to this beautiful little city. I highly recommend traveling here - especially if you are an adventure seeker.
Seoul, South Korea. This is the first place I would consider moving to. I've incorporated little details popular in South Korean culture and a few of my own favorite experiences from visiting. I highly recommend traveling to this beautiful country.

As the story goes... There once was a boy who had set out to sea with his father. A storm came and he was tossed overboard - but a mermaid saved him from drowning and then disappeared. Now as a young man, he has his own restaurant on the seaside and named it after the mermaid, Delicia. Every evening he watches a lone rock in the ocean and sometimes there he can see the shimmering golden hair and scales of his mermaid.

What do the classic tales of Peter Pan, A Christmas Carol, and The Little Mermaid have in common? The Embercede series tells us just that. Love and Sacrifice. Just as any ember has the ability to start up a new flame, every heart has the ability to rekindle a new love. But life is never set with easy choices and sometimes we find ourselves faced with needing too make a decision between personal happiness or to cede a personal desire for the sake of another person's happiness.

The objective was to design a cat food line that would stand out from other on-shelf brands. Kitty's Kitchen embodies the idea of fresh meals made with love in the safety and comfort of home. The image-dominate design is relatable and the character, Kitty, becomes a trustworthy face sure to be adopted into any household. The typographic detail running along the sides of the packaging acts as an interesting aesthetic as well as a useful resource for tips on caring for your cat. Throughout the packaging, Kitty is seen interacting with different products in a fun way which helps give Kitty’s Kitchen a sense of character and life.
Kitty's Kitchen mixes up the best fresh meals for every feline inside and outside of your home. We offer delicious blends of organic free-range ingredients and the perfect play toys that will keep your cat entertained and active for optimal health. Preparing any meal of the day with Kitty’s Kitchen will prove to be an easy and enjoyable experience. Have fun cooking in the kitchen with Kitty.
