I participated in #Keyjam2018 by Baidu and Facemoji. Designers were challenged to create a new keyboard which would work on the facemoji application. The targeted age range is 16-25 and the challenge I participated in was retro.
I decided to choose a typewriter as my inspiration and looked at all the small details including the bevel and shine of each individual key. I decided to use the numbers above the keyboard versus built into the first row to simulate an actual typewriter.
My keyboard won the retro theme.
Ritani is a fine jewelry company that specializes in handcrafted engagement rings. As the company’s only graphic designer, I created a variety of digital and print assets across all our channels.

I have selected some items below to show the broad range of projects I worked on.

A conceptual project showcasing the poetry of Langston Hughes’ at the Neuberger Museum of Art. This project took three forms, postcard, brochure and poster. The Brochure is foldable and invites patrons to learn about the mission and works at the Neuberger.
Primary colors were a focal point of this brochure in order to demonstrate that race or one’s color-is just that, color. Underneath, everyone is human and has their own passions, talents and struggles. However, these circles also showed the darker truth which is despite being human, sometimes all some people saw were color, not a person.
In order to increase awareness on the consumption of plastic bottles at SUNY Purchase College, a series of posters were created. The bold personified posters were aimed to grab the attention of busy students to learn about their role in plastic consumption, but also to show statistically how this is affecting our environment. The posters showed to be very successful with their design captivating the student body and becoming a collectible poster in dorm rooms.
Direct mail, post cards, mall ads and email campaigns were created to promote an annual fall season event. This yearly event promotes the biggest discounts to winter clothing and is the company’s opportunity to increase sales to their existing customers. Direct mail was targeted to new customers in the U.S. to increase brand awareness.
