VCU Institute for Contemporary Art, Richmond Magazine feature
I worked closely with the editor to develop a dynamic layout including callout boxes and infographics that I created. Imagery was challenging because the building is still under construction, but I used renderings to show the finished product and photos of the planning process to add a human element.
R•Health, Top Dentists issue
I worked with one of the winning dentists and a photographer to create an approachable cover photo. I also collaborated with an illustrator for the opener image and designed the layout for this issue.
Fall Arts Preview, Richmond Magazine Feature
I designed a cohesive look throughout this feature's many sections. I pulled certain paragraphs from the main stories and expanded them into graphic elements for a more interesting layout.
Museums, Richmond Magazine Feature
This feature had several long sidebars to incorporate with the main story. I used color to separate blocks of text so the reader can easily distinguish the different sections. I also worked with the editor to visually interpret some of the facts and figures from the story into an infographic.
Dine, The Spice Issue
The food editor and I worked together to create an entire issue centered around one theme. I carried colors and typefaces throughout to unify everything. I also illustrated the "Weird Science" tongue infographic.
Busy Bride Survival Guide, Richmond Bride feature
After seeing the story, the editor and I decided on a "survival guide" look full of highlighters, sticky notes, etc. I communicated often with the illustrator to incorporate spot illustrations into the design.
Top High schools, Richmond magazine feature
I came up with a light-hearted design for what could have been a boring feature full of charts. I paid close attention to organizing and highlighting content to help the reader sort through all of the information. I incorporated elements from the creative director's cover concept (the small doodles and the "Top High Schools" title text).
Richmond Region Tourism Visitors Guide, 2016
This publication had been stuck in the same stale look for years. I worked with my editor and the marketing team at Richmond Region Tourism on a complete design overhaul.
Richmond Region Tourism Visitors Guide, 2017
Richmond Region Tourism rebranded their website in late 2016 and wanted their marketing materials to match the new look...so I completely redesigned this publication again! Their request this year was more dynamic layouts which I accomplished through spreads like the music soundtrack and fashion "mood board."
