Graphic DESIGN & 
Illustration Portfolio

Working remotely, I partnered with Springhill Construction in Chapin, South Carolina to develop and design a marketing brochure. My responsibilities included writing and editing the text, creating the layout and coordinating production with a printing company in South Carolina. 

The strategy for this brochure is to mail to it prospective clients along with project bids.




These illustrations were created for a professor at the OSU campus in Wooster for her workshop in summer 2017 on growing wine grapes. 

After conducting visual research on the stages of grape growth, I created these illustrations using Adobe Illustrator. They were printed on a card (top image) for students to use in the field to identify different stages of grape growth.



These goat soap wraps were designed for a small business owner. The color palette was created based on the scent of the soaps. Brand relevant typography and an image were also chosen. 

All these elements came together into a cohesive branding for the soap packaging. This project was completed in partnership with a printing company.



My client Barbara, who lives in Alabama, contacted me to request custom illustrations for a T-shirt to promote a fundraiser for the Children's Hospital of Alabama. The proceeds went to fund their research about congenital heart defects. 

The theme of the fundraiser was "Will You Be My Champion? Save Lives. Spread CHD Awareness." The fundraiser took place in February 2017 and over $3,000 was raised for the Children's Hospital of Alabama.



This project was completed in partnership with a printing company. The Wooster Chamber of Commerce requested a map to welcome tourists to the area and help them find their way around. 

The map includes street indexes for Wayne county, Wooster and Orrville. Points of Interest are indicated on each smaller map and each sponsor has an icon on the maps to show where they are located.



While employed at The University of Akron Wayne College in Orrville, Ohio, each semester I produced the schedule book. The layout was made in InDesign. For the classes list, I utilized the table function to accurately present the course facts in an organized way.


Back to Start

Another piece I completed while working at Wayne College is this "Why Wayne" brochure. It highlights the advantages Wayne Colleges offers to students including student activities and academic excellence. 

The admissions counselors gave this out to students visiting campus and also mailed it to potential students.
