The Review is Westminster College’s biannual alumni magazine. With the school’s rebrand in the Spring of 2017, the magazine needed an overhaul to match. Some of the stand-out elements of the magazine remained the same: stunning photography and great storytelling. My job was to redesign the whole look of the magazine, including the masthead, all fonts, sections, and choose new paper and a new printer.
A lot of the design work I did was to eliminate unnecessary design elements, to make it stand out on its own but still meet brand guidelines, and to deliver a clean and minimalistic look that enhanced the storytelling.

UACPA Logo Redesign
The UACPA logo is bold, modern, and it reflects the future of the organization, while also honoring its connection to the state. The up-trajectory line is a symbol of growth, and also of the mountainous Utah landscape.
This was a logo redesign project in which I worked closely with the organization to brainstorm and refine the logo. Collaterals included: logo package, visual branding guidelines, and business suite.
Official launch of the UACPA logo: October 2019.
I run a side business with an editor and friend, where we help authors self-publish their books. While the editor handles the written word and helps our authors tell their story, I design a book cover that will grab readers’ attention and get them to buy the book. We work with one client at a time, and it’s a long process (eight months to a few years) to get a book from manuscript to the kindle store, and we are happy to partner with writers to get their words out into the world.

The invitation for Westminster College’s 19th president inauguration was kind of a puzzle to put together. There were six different mailing lists with different combinations of RSVP cards, four different types of paper, embossing, die cuts, and it all had to be put together by hand to mail. In total, a few thousand pages were printed to make up 900 invitations.
On opening the envelope, the invitee would find an approximately 6x9 packet, wrapped together with a band embossed with the college logo. The first page of the packet was printed in thick vellum, and you could peek through the image of Westminster’s newest president. The next pages included information on the various events happening on campus, RSVP cards (all inserted into a copper page with die cuts to accommodate the reply cards), a business reply envelope, and a campus map.

To promote Westminster College’s graduate programs to a targeted mailing list, we created a set of three different mailers, each focusing on common areas of study: business and communication, nursing and health sciences, education and community leadership.
