Using sustainable practices in architecture is crucial to our future. By pushing for “green” building we can reduce waste, save water, and conserve resources.
Sustainability and architecture are two topics that go hand in hand. I decided, for my thesis project, to design and curate a seasonal magazine that would appeal to a niche crowd; those who are interested in sustainable architecture.

Mock Branding | Spring 2015 + Summer 2017
Branding of a made-up company that creates paper products, specifically, an organizational set that includes an agenda, calendar, and to-do lists.
The idea was developed in 2015, currently in the "work in progress" stage due to an overhaul. This time around, I am creating an agenda and calendar duo.

Wayfinding for Assembly Row
Wayfinding | June 2017 – present
During Phase II of construction and new development, Assembly Row was in need of temporary signage for customers to be able to navigate around the property. I was tasked with utilizing brand guidelines and creating a "bread crumb" trail to lead customers and office workers around Assembly Row.
As well as temporary wayfinding, we also promoted our events in large banner layout. Riverfest is the next big event, slated for September.
Assembly Row Icons + Illustrations
Icon Refresh + Application | August 2017
Assembly Row is known for it's trusses that are left over remnants of Somerville's old assembly plant. They act as the neighborhood's icon. I wanted to refresh the hand drawn truss icon we use for collateral and create something a little more modern and contemporary.
Along with refreshing the beloved truss icon, I created an illustration for holiday purposes highlighting one of the prettier residential and retail buildings on the property.
Work in Progress
Freelance | Spring – Summer 2017
Contracted digital book design for Frank Mruk, the Atlas of Strategy and Innovation for Architects.
Making Her Mark
Poster + Postcard + Label Design | Spring 2017
As a part of my Art History Senior Seminar Capstone class, we curated an exhibition focusing on women artists in the Providence area that were not given proper recognition in their time. We titled the exhibition, Making Her Mark. The Providence Art Club generously donated all of the pieces.
Myself along with two other designers, Jonathan Alumbaugh and Meaghan O'Neill designed all promotional materials and labels.
Design Studio at CVPA
Student-run Design Studio |Spring 2016 + 2017
During two semesters, I was apart of a studio class at UMass Dartmouth that was tasked to help clean up and re-brand our College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA).
One of my assignments was to re-design the dull, outdated curriculum sheets with a modern feel that would appeal to design and fine arts students.
My second assignment was to add in the college's title, CVPA, to the logo a classmate of mine had designed already, Frankie Romeo. My job was to "marry" the two. In addition, I created business forms that would help our class track projects.
