MY PROFESSIONAL JOURNEY
In one of my more serious articles (my contribution to "They Didn't Ask for Fentanyl"), I showed the facts behind one of America's most serious current problems: fentanyl and drug poisoning. Through these graphs and charts, I was able to demonstrate stories without using any words and show how serious this issue has gotten in the past few years.
Design for Highlander Magazine
In my first spread for The Highlander, I chose to highlight an issue important to every teenager: driver's education and getting a license. I was able to express this by designing and implementing a road-like style, experimenting with new software such as Adobe Illustrator and InDesign.
In my second spread for The Highlander, I chose to highlight the importance of the continuation of masks as a means to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. In doing so, I was able to explore a new method of design by using Adobe Photoshop and creating colorful silhouettes.
In my third spread for The Highlander, I chose to highlight the student body; more specifically, I wrote about students' summer plans and where they were planning on traveling. I was able to express this artistically through a postcard design and implemented a vintage-look to emphasize the travels.
