Had some time on my hands and designed a fun card for a coworker's b-day golfing bash.
"All style has a timeless content
and a transitory appearance."

Answering the design prompt: illustrate the weather outside the office.
“As a young person I had no clear perception of my future —
I only knew that my professional career depended on my energy,
self-criticism, discipline, and a permanent desire to learn”
— Josef Müller-Brockmann
Poster design for a fictitious exhibition, built off of a found Polaroid, in the Swiss style of Müller-Brockmann.
An illustration from my walk home: the moment when you break free of the neon signs and gritty side streets and look out over the skyscrapers downtown.
I've been knitting since I was ten, a hobby I find both calming and captivating. A simple motion, repeated again and again, transforms a strand of yarn into a finished pattern. When I knit, seconds turn to minutes and fade to hours. A bus ride becomes a blink. A train journey boils down to the number of rows I've accomplished or the scarf length I've finished. I savor the dawning joy of creation as the brim of a hat, the collar of a sweater, or the arch of a sock emerges into life on my needles.
I'm experimenting now with bringing the texture and patterns of knitting into my graphic designs, hoping to impart some of the same craftsmanship and attention to detail from my favorite hobby into my profession.
