Sort Later: RISD GD Senior Show

Identity Design, Exhibition Design  |  2023
Design is a form of sorting. The designer takes disparate elements and strings them together; remixed and recombined. Charged with the unending task of forging new connections, the designer tediously aligns type to page, gathers content for books, and compiles assets for websites. Sorting becomes a way to retain control. It implies a tangible end to the process. So often, each design decision leads to some envisioned ‘end.’ Sort Later is about letting go of ideas of finality and instead celebrating the work in progress, the liminal, and the unanswered. The exhibition is a celebration of excess, community, and growth.

Identity Design  |  2022
The objective of this project is to express the content primarily with type and audio, pushing typographic relationships while considering the potential of form. By exploiting the poster form as a stage for performance, we become more conscious of how type is anchored and oriented to the surface of the poster.

The song I chose to work with is called Sanctuary by Joji, part of his Nectar album. In the track, the music features lo-fi ballad sounds with a mix of R&B. Inspired by Sanctuary's music video, this dynamic typographic poster offers viewers an euphoric and explosive experience as if they are in space.

Ducati Model Series

Experimental  |  2022
A poster is a transformative window through which the viewer can experience almost anything—a place, an idea, or a point of view—in a new way.

The Ducati Model series investigate the role of the poster frame, testing the potential to reshape a poster’s meaning. This serie explores the dynamics of the complex of two-dimensional composition.

Knoll is a constellation of design-driven brands and people, working together with clients to create inspired modern interiors. Since 1938, the company has been thinking about how people interact with their environments and how their environments impact what they do. While collaborating with the Knoll Workplace Research Library, the project aims to create a sub-branding system for Knoll.

The logo design is inspired by one of the most important concepts of Knoll—a cycle of innovation. Each new chair design is propelled by the innovations of its predecessors. The changing logo form echoes the silhouettes of Knoll’s past chair designs, embracing the company’s growth, history, and legacy.

Gérard Uféras: The Fabric of Dreams is a photographic book containing selected works from the renowned French photographer, Gérard Uféras. With a focus on high fashion, couture, and life backstage, these black and white photographs are jarring in their graphic nature and beauty.

Process Image
The first step of designing this book was to pair up the photos according to their axes, narrative, visual texture, values, and balance.
