"What's The Rush?" was the first ever project I worked on with Joey. He was looking for an artist would could understand who he was and his poetry, and turn that into art that his readers could relate to. I was up for the challenge!
I sent him initial sketches of my ideas to make sure I was the right one for the job and once those were approved I was given the creative freedom to illustrate whatever I thought would represent his poems.
We ended up using 40+ of my gestural illustrations in the book, and I was also asked to create the cover. I brought Joey's idea to life and helped him format the cover for printing. Many other projects came after the books release such as an audio book cover and a lyric video for a song based on the book.

As a designer, I am committed to continuous growth and development. One way I achieve this is through practice projects. Recently, I assigned myself the task of creating a Pitch Deck for one of my favorite eco-friendly makeup companies, "Elate Cosmetics."
To complete this project, I thoroughly studied the brand and determined their brand guidelines, which I closely followed. I also utilized all of the assets available to me through their website and used Illustrator to create additional icons that were needed for the project.
Maintaining consistency and cohesiveness across all of the slides was crucial for the project, as well as carefully selecting the key initiatives and unique qualities of the company to showcase. I believe that a potential investor or customer would quickly learn about the business and its values through the use of these slides.
I have included some of the strongest slides I created for this project. These slides demonstrate my ability to understand a brand, use assets available, and create additional illustrations to achieve a cohesive final product.
