User Interface / Experience

Design (UI/UX) Desktop

I chose an existing non-profit organization and created a web design for the desktop browser in Adobe Photoshop. This design utilizes what sections/facts the current WATER IS LIFE website includes. However, the main inspiration derives from how I would pitch a new web design to the organization should they decide to change their current platform. All images were released under a Creative Commons License or approved for use by the visual artist.

Design for Mobile

Designed for smartphone browser.

Magazine Cover Design

I picked a story from an online publication and used it to design a feature magazine four-page layout (two spreads) with words, pictures, display, type and graphic elements. I didn't use any pictures from the original article and I credited the original photographer. Background image and effects done in Photoshop, utilized InDesign for the typeface.

Opening Spread

Opening spread for the article. Created a new headline and deck (different from the original article). Utilized content-aware scaling feature on original image in Photoshop to allow for better visibility of the typeface and multiply blending option to darken the edges.

Jump Spread Design

Included drop-caps, pull-quotes, a fact box (bottom right) and captions for images. Utilized original article as body copy and modified pull-quotes for design purposes. Established my own indents, margins and column grids in InDesign.

Jump Spread Design 2

Included a side-bar story which was not in the original article. Those were my PERSONAL Top 5 tracks of that month.

Back Cover Design (ad)

Based on actual merchandise sold on Mija's artist website.


11x17 Poster Design

Created a one-page vertical poster/advertisement with type and an image which is intended to attract people to a specific event of a localized non-profit organization. I chose a non-profit with which I have strong feelings about. Included a primary visual element, which in this case is an illustration based on a picture of my dog. Utilized pen/pencil tool in Adobe Illustrator. Auto-trace of artist logos in Illustrator and created typeface design in InDesign.
