Price Modern wanted an organic, motion-like pattern to redesign building facade of their Baltimore office furniture store. Modeled after local water reserve, Jones Falls.

Designed while working on Price Modern team at Gensler.

The Survivalist Essential Kit was created for my alter ego persona, Suri A. Preppers. Channeling her design aesthetic, I crafted and curated a 14-essentials item kit along with a booklet, poster and logo stamp for those eager to make the leap.




The Community Map is the first step in getting to know and understand a neighborhood and visually documenting those findings in order to begin to establish relevant and useful connections. While interning at Gensler Architecture firm, one of my main tasks was to design and build their Community Mapping process.

For the design and build of the maps used Mapbox's TileMill to provide a vector-based, zoomable method to output the maps. The TileMill process was also employed to make the maps more portable to a web or mobile interface. I also used Adobe Illustrator to future customize the maps for print.
