Posters

(Left) This poster, for the Oscar-winning film Black Swan, was done in the Swiss Modern style and pays homage to Armin Hofmann's "Giselle" ballet poster. Featured in Remarque, Visual Annual of FAU (Issue 4, 2015).

(Center) The assignment here was to create a concert poster using only text.

(Right) After discovering the brilliant (and often surreal) landscapes of photographer Mikko Lagerstedt, I knew I had to create a poster for a hypothetical exhibition of his work. The gallery name comes from the 1984 comedy Top Secret! and the image is part of Mikko's "n i g h t" series.
Logos

(Left) This is the logo for a fictional record label. As far as the name goes, we have PolyGram and Polydor Records (and This is Spinal Tap had Polymer Records). So I went with Polyglot, which is an adjective meaning "knowing or using several languages."

(Center) This is the logo for a fictional company (similar to Criterion, Twilight Time, et al) that specializes in deluxe home video presentations of films both popular and obscure.

(Right) This logo is for a fictional company specializing in gift packaging with a retro-futuristic theme. Featured in Remarque, Visual Annual of FAU (Issue 3, 2014).

Jewish Association for Residential Care

I wanted to rebrand this particular non-profit because of their chosen acronym. To handle their unwieldy name, they employ the acronym JARC, which hardly rolls off the tongue.

It all started with a circle. JARC is home to mentally-disabled adults so I researched artwork by autistic people and found that many of the works featured interesting circle patterns. So one circle became two, two became four, and so on. It was also a challenge to not have something too solemn: this facility is ultimately a celebration of life.
