During my Internship at treebranchDESIGN, I was able to work often with the Maryland State Child Care Association, or MSCCA. In addition to photographing events and making Facebook posts from the images in real time, I also made their winter holiday post for Facebook.
Using Illustrator, I researched and arranged the names for almost every winter holiday into the shape of a present, and completed the image with a hand drawn bow and a cheerful message.
When my mentors at treebranchDESIGN started a new program called LEAF (Learn, Explore, Art, Fun) they had me make a logo for them.
I created the logo in Illustrator, and drew the oak leaf image myself. In addition to creating the logo, I also created flyers for the various events they would be hosting through their new organization. To make this process as efficient and uniform as possible, I created a flyer template for myself and my mentors to use.
Made during my Internship at treebranchDESIGN, I digitally painted this image in Photoshop, as well as put a stock photo in the picture frame, for a winter holidays Facebook post.
I painted the entire scene in Photoshop, searched for and added in a stock photo from my Mentor’s favorite stock website, and incorporated the Synergy logo into the image (following their brand standards).
This is artwork I made for a Facebook post for a client I worked a lot with during my Internship at treebranchDESIGN, Kin-nect.
I digitally painted this scene in Photoshop for a Thanksgiving Facebook post. It was also resized and edited slightly to make it a Facebook cover banner by me.
During my Internship at treebranchDESIGN, I made many graphics and Facebook post material for this client. Here, I made a Facebook ad for a contest they were having to win tickets to a Navy game.
Using stock images I found from my Mentor’s favorite stock image website, I combined type, the Synergy logo, and the images together in Photoshop to make this ad.
From August to December of 2017, I worked as a Graphic Design Intern at treebranchDESIGN. This is one of the logos I made for a client during my time there.
I redrew their original logo artwork, since they wanted that to stay the same, and then presented them with several different arrangement options for the name, tagline, and colors in the artwork, along with the names of the typefaces I used and the color codes . This was chosen and will be used by them!
In September of 2017, I went with my Best Friend and her Husband’s family to take photos in an apple orchard. Her Nephews were as cooperative as children going apple picking can be, and I took some pregnancy photos of her and her Husband as well. I think a lot of personality shows through in this set, and in the whole shoot itself! All images are also on my Flickr.
In May of this year I was fortunate enough to be the Maid of Honor in my best friend’s wedding. Of course, I brought along my camera for the event! These were taken with a Nikon D3400 and a fixed F1.8 lens.
All my photography can be found on My Flickr.

For this we had to make an infographic on the state of our choice, I chose Montana. This assignment was very difficult, as we had a certain amount of facts we had to incorporate in an 8.5 x 11″ space. I think the typeface in this, Mrs. Eaves, works very well for the “country” feel associated with the state without being overpowering. I created the artwork in Illustrator as well as arranged the type. My professor suggested incorporating more color into the type, but in the end it either clashed with the background blue or faded into it. There are some arrangement changes from when I submitted this for class, but I think I could take it even further and plan to continue working on this in the future.

In what turned out to be my favorite assignment of the semester, we had to make up a high end clothing company and design a type-based logo along with 3 different hang tags and one design for the back of the tags. I am proud of every part of the design, from the logo I made, to each tag, and even the back. At first I had each design very similar, but after some peer reviews and critique from my professor I varied the designs more but still kept the overall feel that they belong to the same company, as I thought a luxury brand should be easily recognizable regardless of gender or age. We needed to come up with a background story for the company or some kind of statement or tag line, and I thought the best way to display that across all the tags was to put it on the reverse side of the tag design (shown all the way to the right) and keep the fronts of the tag designs relevant to what the clothing item was. Overall I think it’s edgy and modern, but still very relaxed and laid back like the beach-y lifestyle conveys.
