Magazine about the history of black and white photography. Each section is designed based on the conceptual and formal explorations of the featured artist.
Rubin Museum of Art
The Rubin Museum of Art’s mission is to preserve and display the art and cultures of the Himalayas and its neighboring regions. The proposed identity approaches the museum as the temple of Buddhist art in New York City, giving it its own official seal and a color palette inspired by prayer flags.
The Heart Index
I was invited by Craig Atkinson and Grace Bond to contribute The Heart Index, a not-for-profit design compendium raising money and awareness for Heart Research UK. The book showcases a collection of hearts, designed and interpreted by a host of contemporary practitioners, including Adrian Shaughnessy, Spin, Studio Makgill and Wim Crouwel.
Rebranding proposal for a record store in the West Village, which sells used and new albums, DVD’s, posters and t-shirts, with a strong emphasis on punk and metal. My idea for the brand was for it to be constantly vibrating and emiting sound, through sharp black and white graphics.
Citizens for Optimism
Citizens for Optimism is a collaboration created and curated by Ali Eng and Virgilio Tzaj. New Yorkers were asked what words or feelings they associated with optimism. The long list was narrowed down and each designer was given one word along with a simple brief: to design a type dominant poster that promoted optimism.
Cover design for a series of books by
Ernest Hemingway that review aspects of his experiences in Europe during the first half of the 20th century. I decided to focus on the author’s bold personality and the gravity of the conflicts taking place in the continent at the time, with which he was involved. Weighty art deco inspired typography runs across all covers in order to unify the books.
Cultural History Book Series
Series of books by the renowed Oxford scholar Theodore Zeldin, narrating the cultural history of different countries. The design celebrates the power and importance of printed media in preserving and disseminating our history. The covers show overprinted blown-up halftone patterns, each layer carrying a different color of the country’s flag.
