I designed this infographic for a digital article about the effects of snow amount on seasonal earnings of several Colorado ski resorts. Rather than subject viewers to written statistics, I used illustration to make dry information interesting and fun to take in. I used ski resort topics to stand in for graphs, ie: mountain heights represent snow fall amount. To the left of the moutains is the ski lift that heads up or down depending on the depth of snow. The clients were happy with the results.

Having a fine arts background allows me to illustrate my own spot illustrations. I have a range of styles both drawn by hand as well as digitally. So often I will be in need of illustrations showing specific subjects and can just draw them myself. This skill really comes in handy for sketching ideas to show clients and creating story-boards to show user flows, etc. So much faster than describing, especially to stakeholders who might not understand what you are proposing.

Sketching is the most important part of the process because it allows superfast ideation to focus on concept and not get bogged down with details. Shown are sketches for a logo I did.

I usually start with typography when designing identity. I feel that typography can represent enough of a company or product's brand while still allowing the viewer to take part in the interpretation – unlike when using a literal image.

Sometimes a client will come to me for help with visual design that collectively support the company's image while also standing alone as a product. In this project, a series of DIY kits needed to convey the individual products while holding together as a series. I worked with the client to create a template for all forthcoming kits. The challenge was taking into consideration the varied title lengths and diverse subject matter to find relevant imagery.

Each kit looks the same, with the text only changing when the title is long, like in the mochi kit.

Colors are important as well to convey the subject matter yet hold together when all kits are seen together.
