I was given the opportunity to design a marination sauce bottle that will be sold in restaurants and grocery stores. Many people may know of this sweet and savory sauce from a Seattle favorite, Monsoon restaurant. But what they don’t know is that it cooks well with meats and veggies. After talking to the client, I formed the moodboard below. The look is modern, distressed, and connected.
During this last week, I researched as much as I could on Generation Z to guide the direction of my infographic. I learned about their spending habits, technology capabilities, future thoughts, and what others are saying about them. They are large in number and some are entering the workforce, making it important for retailers and marketers to understand their habits and values. Some things I learned: $200 billion influence. $600 billion influence indirectly. They have the attention span similar to a goldfish – 8 seconds. Mobile banking is important to…read more
As my last Specials Topic class project, I’m choosing to work on something I’m always been interested in – infographics. For a visual learner like myself, I enjoy how information and data can be represented in variety of ways with shapes, scale, direction, and color.

For this project, we were told to use brushes and to paint with those brushes. The brushes are symbols – can you tell which ones?
For the last few weeks in our typography class we were given the task of designing a magazine article spread and one ad. I chose the article on Upcycling, which is when you reuse materials to create another product of higher value. We’re seeing this more in more in fashion and household goods. This particular spread would live in a lifestyle magazine.
In our New Media class this week we had a week to direct and film a short thriller film. We filmed at Volunteer Park and an apartment in Cap Hill. Enjoy!
Sicario is an action crime thriller directed by Denis Villeneuve. In Mexico, Sicario means hitman. From this shot, it looks like police officials will be raiding the home of someone or multiple people who are armed and dangerous. They most likely have been planning this raid for a long time considering the number of people and equipment involved. The policemen are crouching and armed ready for anything to happen. The surrounding land is dry and desert-like which could mean Arizona, New Mexico or areas outside the US. This opening scene…read more
There is no shortage of dining options in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, and the list continues to grow. As Seattle expands, so do the number of restaurants, and if you’ve noticed who is opening these restaurants, you will see a lot of them are owned by the same few people: Tom Douglas, Matt Dillon, and Ethan Stowell to name a few. It seems to be a trend in Seattle to own multiple restaurants and their continued success shows that Seattleites are enjoying it. We were interested in learning more about…read more
Looking for fuchsia colored items for a project in color theory and I found this beautiful photo.
We scavenged for things around our homes to put together this found color wheel!
