Branding + Campaign Strategy for local non-profit organization and concept for the Lincoln, NE area
Homestead Hamlets is a self-sustaining neighborhood concept based on the idea that neighbors share space within their houses or blocks to build a garden and grow produce in efforts to preserve the environment. The goals for this branding strategy and concept were, educating the public on the benefits of starting their own hamlet, persuading community members to work together in order to save money and preserve the environment, and to provide Homestead Hamlet communities with references to help them begin their own gardens.
Mission: Create an affordable campaign to raise awareness and educate the Lincoln Community on the values and benefits of a self-sustaining neighborhood.

While working in a team of designers, the visualization of information as a cross-disciplinary art form is rooted in data visualization and the design of infographics, a field which has been transformed by technology and encompasses discursive thinking and the practice of design research. Projects included long-term field based assignments and collaborative projects. Various presentations and projects introduce methodologies for working with data visualization: maps, diagrams, charts, timelines, infographics, interfaces and video narratives.
For my final solo project, I chose to create a Children's Illustration book for the children of Tanzania to support healthy eating and help lower risk of malnutrition among Tanzanian youth. The illustration book was researched and designed over a period of 6 weeks. Finally, the steps of the process of the project was documented into a book, which I authored and designed.

Capstone installation project for the College of Fine Arts, Graphic Design program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. This installation project focuses on the Fast Fashion Industry and the demand for clothing manufactured in mass quantities, leading to the contribution to pollution to our earth.
“Be the change you wish to see in your wardrobe.”
Over the past 5 years alone, consumer demand for cheap clothing in mass quantities has more than doubled over, making Fast Fashion the second most polluted industry in the world. We now consume more than 80 billion pieces of new clothing each year and in return, throw away 82 pounds of textile waste. Corporate greed is slowly destroying the environment and the consumer is the only one to blame. We are constantly influenced by the ‘fast, inexpensive and easy’ approach society has pushed onto us through clothing advertisements, which is influenced the most by design aesthetic. Advertising has evolved into a form of communication that can persuade the viewer to see and feel subconsciously, things we otherwise wouldn’t. The distortion of our values, concepts of material possessions and our identity within society can be changed and lost through our exposure to advertising. Through use of distorted images, overlaid color and typography, comes a skewed view of the consumer’s buying identity. What if advertising wasn’t so misleading, but let us know exactly what we are buying when walking through a store, and swiping at the end of a purchase? We can change the Fast Fashion Industry by empowering consumers to be inquisitive about the brands they seek and just exactly who and what is paying for our bargains.
