FBGM “Dog Collar / Fan” Vinyl Record, 2017

FBGM is my band – a songwriting duo with my friend D. Orxata. I’ve wanted to release music on vinyl since I first started playing in bands in high school but for one reason or another I just never could make it happen… until now! We are 100% independent and completely self-funded. This means we wrote, performed, recorded, and mixed each song ourselves. We spent months working on them. One of the fondest memories I have is recording D’s vocals for “Fan” in our rehearsal space very late on Christmas Eve 2016. It felt good to be working on music…

When Particles Collide Logo, 2017

When Particles Collide is a rock duo consisting of Sasha Alcott and Chris Viner. As a fellow touring musician, I’ve played shows with them over the years and when they approached me about creating a new logo for them I was psyched. They had an idea to do something with the letters “WPC” and a lightning bolt and from there we developed a hot pink blot as part of the P – half inspired by Bowie and half inspired by the band’s signature pink and black style.…

Ex Libris Exchange Catalog, 2016

Ex Libris Exchange is an international collaborative art project sponsored by the Boston/Strasbourg Sister City Association (BSSCA). The project includes 26 artists – 13 from each city who have created original Artists’ Books and artful maps based on a common theme. The thematic content of the artwork was inspired by an elaborately illustrated 18th century journal created by Georg Daniel Flor, a member of a French brigade that participated in the American Revolutionary War. My job was to create a catalog of this work for an exhibition that was held at the French Cultural Center in Boston during the fall…

Motown, Miniskirts, and the Moon Landing, 2013

In 2013, the Arsenal Center for the Arts held their annual benefit at which they gave the Charles Mosesian Award for Support of the Arts to long-time supporter, John Airasian. Honoring Mr. Airasian’s fondness of 1950’s-1960’s music and fashion, we created the theme Motown, Miniskirts, and the Moon Landing. I came up with the design for the printed materials, which were also utilized in the decor for the evening. I was inspired by polka dots, mod design, vintage black & white photography, and chartreuse, which together said “yesterday and today” to me. We printed invitations, posters, postcards, and a 40-page…

Big Band Meets Broadway, 2012

The theme for the Arsenal Center for the Arts’ 2012 Annual Benefit was Big Band Meets Broadway, where a big band would be playing Broadway favorites. I started with the colors that the Center had been using for their latest run of education print materials (primary red, blue, yellow, plus green) and channeled a bit of big band with the dancing color blocks, then added the silhouetted images of jazz instruments, which seemed a bit Broadway to me. We printed invitations, posters, postcards, and a 40-page program book, all of which I designed and saw through from concept to completion.…

Loeb Fellowship 40th Anniversary, 2010

Harvard University’s Loeb Fellowship celebrated their 40-year anniversary with four days of programming on October 6-10, 2010. The theme was Urban Futures: Opportunities and Challenges for Transforming the Urban Landscape. I was asked to create a design and complete the layout for all print materials. I took inspiration from minimalism, urban planning, a fall color palette, and I’m also a huge SimCity nerd, which I somehow think relates to this design. I designed the logo, a 16-page booklet, several large 20×30″ posters, postcards, and even tote bags for their event. The design was created using Adobe Illustrator and InDesign.…

Arsenal Center for the Arts Education Catalogs, 2009-2015

The Arsenal Center for the Arts offers year-round art & theatre classes, and it has been my role to put together this catalog twice a year (Spring/Summer, Fall/Winter), which showcases all classes and events. The books are two-color, ranging from 24-36 pages. The cover illustration of the building was created by me in 2008 and the design has become a staple in the organization. We print and mail 10,000-12,000 catalogs per session. The layout and design is done using Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. We’ve recently added online registration, which has brought the contents of these books to the web…
