Locating Place

This video was to represent the a certain section of the East Side of Austin. I chose to display the changes made as a person got closer to I-35. Cesar Chavez changes as it gets closer to the high way and I wanted to show that through this video. The photos that are in front of the video recording are things that a person sees instantly and the photos behind are things that a person must look for or that they do not see instantly.

Locating Place


This book explored the different sections of Austin: East, West, North and South. The text given was about discovering a city and what makes a city. My book reflects the picture and the text throughout. The position of the text and images are a reflection of which side of the city the pictures were taken.


This is a link to an mini project in Interaction Design. The project was to find a recipe and use Dreamweaver to make a website for that recipe. Instructions included: Roll-over image, link, picture link, and pictures.

Research Paper


The project was to write a research paper and then design it in some way if desired. My topic was Typographic Principles in Advertising, so I designed a magazine that contained my research paper. The picture examples are what I believe are good typographic principles in advertising.

Research Paper Cover

This is the cover for the research paper I wrote and then designed into a magazine. The research topic was Typographic Principles in Advertising.

Field Guide

This project is still in progress. The project is to design a field guide to something of choice. I chose a field guide to patterns, in which I explore the different kinds of patterns that are in downtown Austin. This is an accordion/poster, in which the viewer initially looks at it horizontal and then opens it to reveal a poster for display.

Instructional Design

This project was to show the steps for a daily chore. My topic was How to Wash Dishes. I chose to design packaging for a potential product that could be sold in store. The product shows how to clean dishes using earth friendly products.

Concept Map

This project was to choose one of the topics given and basically break down the topic. We were to describe the topic in order for the viewer to completely understand what it is. I chose the S.E.T.I. program which is The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence.



This project was a presentation about an art movement. My art movement was Analytic and Synthetic Cubism. The guidelines were to discuss the movement and how it influenced graphic design today.

This book was study books for kids to learn about Fair Trade Chocolate. Each week the child has a new topic to learn about and they get a certificate at the end of the book.

Image Analysis

The project was to find an image that was published in the last year and find different artistic movements within the poster. The movements came from the ones studied in the class.


This poster was for buttons that were created for the Blanton Museum of Art. The poster was to sum up the whole idea of my buttons that were different movements of Bauhaus.
