2020 | Maps are an interest of mine—I’ve always been fascinated by the display of information in the most efficient way possible. The London Underground map, originally designed by Harry Beck, is a perfect example.

This London style has inspired countless tributes. The idea to do a version of this map following the major roadways and intersections of my home in Northwest Arkansas came to me during my daily commute. Although a rail system doesn’t quite yet exist in this area, it’s fun to think about if it did. This project inspired me to troubleshoot, research, and, finally, to create in a way that features the many highlights of the area where I live.

2020 | Screenprinting has been a passion of mine from day one. During high school, when my interest in design had only freshly been piqued, I had the opportunity to do a summer internship at a local Nebraska print shop, T-Shirt Engineers. The following samples highlight gig-poster design, hand-cut prints, 7-color layering, and other personal projects to continue my interest in the field.
