Graphic Design | Professional Writing | Art History

I am a student at Kutztown University majoring in Communication Design with a dual minor in Professional Writing and Art History. My work is influenced by artists such as Henri Matisse, Andy Warhol, and Swiss designers. I believe that form follows function in design. I look to the past for inspiration, collect design and modern art books, and love hunting for mid-century furniture.

Dry Goods Magazine

For my Honors Program Thesis, I am in the process of designing Dry Goods Magazine, an interior design magazine focusing on modern interiors. The magazine focuses on what makes an object a dry good by taking a close look at the materials. Each issue would highlight a section of interior design: the wood issue for furniture, the clay issue for modernist pottery, and so on.

To reflect the magazine’s goal in the nameplate, I used ink and a dry brush technique to create a tactile feel. Below are selected spreads from the wood issue including the cover, department page, and two feature articles.
