The Delta International Film Festival takes place every year at Delta State University in Cleveland, MS. While I was a student there in 2012 I took on the extra responsibility of designing their branding for that year.
Album cover design and packaging layouts for "...Again" by The Ellie Badge. The album's themes revolve mostly around the passage of time and cycles played off of how each stage of growing up feels in the moment. The idea was to make the design look a lot like a stained glass window or an illuminated manuscript while also stressing the themes of time, cycles, loss, and exuberance. The CD is based off of an old calendar with each track title in place of the months of the year.
The cassette release proved to be a challenge. I had to adapt the square design to a rectangular template and so I had to make a few adjustments. I feel as though the reflection-style layout reinforces the themes of the record. I also used hand-written type for the lyrics in order to really nail down the sense of a personal journey (i.e. a diary or a journal).
In the end, I'm extremely happy with the results.
During my time in graduate school we were tasked with creating an ad campaign for a social issue. At the time it was nearing the one year anniversary of a friend of mine's suicide so I decided to take on the heavy subject of suicide prevention.
Posters for the Electro Acoustic Barn Dance in Fredericksburg, VA. I've been designing their posters for the past 5 years and every year I try to change it up a lot. Ever since the first they like to keep the robot in there. It's become somewhat of an unofficial mascot.
For the past 6 years or so I've been on and off writing a musical. At some point I decided to make it a large multi-media project and create a comic book-companion to go with the music for whenever I got it all done. This is the first of three issues of that comic book. Enjoy!

As a graduate component to my History of Graphic Design class I designed a series of ads for lightbulbs resembling different eras of marketing and design.
I did a series of informative posters in the study of retro schoolhouse info-poster in order to address cyber bullying. Not only is cyber bullying just as bad as regular bullying in the right context it also has a very strange effect on the one doing the bullying...
The University of Memphis's This Is Memphis music festival is becoming an annual event and I've been fortunate enough to design the branding for their first two outings. Their original designer fell through so this was designed on extremely short notice and came out way better than I thought it would.
While studying modernism and post-modernism I was tasked with creating posters that exemplified all of the things we were studying at the time.
I designed a series of crests that revolved the idea of apophenia, which is essentially people finding meaning and/or patterns where there wasn't really any to begin with.
