Development of a Typeface at Stevenson University's School of Design Gallery chronicled Baltimore typographer Tal Leming's process as well as the creation of Balto, one of his newest typeface designs. I created the exhibition design and graphics as well as the accompanying collateral materials.
Several interactive typographic displays were created for the exhibition, including a basic kerning exercise and an oversized flip book visitors could use to compare adjustments made during the typeface's development.

My wife, Jenn, and I met in a foundation level drawing class in college. We used this point from our past as our inspiration to develop a series of collateral for our wedding. We mailed guests a custom laser engraved pencil as part of our save the date and each subsequent collateral piece utilized the pencil in some way.
The invitation folded out to a 12"x18" poster and contained an illustrated connect-the-dots portrait of us. On the RSVP cards, we asked guests to draw (or write) a message, which we displayed at the wedding reception. Lastly, the thank you cards featured an intricate maze that spelled "Thanks" once finished. At the wedding, guests helped put the finishing touches on our pencil illustrated guestbook poster by applying their fingerprints.

The Draw of Lettering, a sweeping survey of contemporary posters, prints, logotypes, and packaging that embrace the tactile and expressive qualities of hand lettering, was an exhibition at Stevenson University's School of Design Gallery. I organized and curated the work for the exhibition from some of the finest letterers from around the world. I also designed the exhibition, print collateral, and publicity materials.
Additionally, I worked with Colin Tierney to hand letter the title wall of the exhibition with paint markers and Sharpies. The process took nearly 8 hours to complete.
