Hello,

I'm a freelance designer working and playing in 3D & motion graphics, print, branding, and interactive design.

Featured Projects

UCLA Centennial 2019

Projection Mapping

On May 18th 2019, to celebrate UCLA turning 100 years old, Royce Hall was transformed into a canvas for a projection mapping show highlighting many of the people, moments and memories that have shaped UCLA over the past century since its founding.

I was very fortunate to have had a small part in working on this projection mapping show with the awesome team at Be Grizzlee. I came on the project towards the end to help with some design explorations for a couple remaining sections, helped finish up some design frames, and helped create many of the final assets to pass onto the animation team.

It was a great collaborative effort between many people including all those at Be Grizzlee, NoSLATE Productions / Kommune LA, the UCLA 100 committee, and many others.

I'm grateful to be a small part in making it, and beyond honored to be able to help celebrate UCLA’s incredible 100-year history.

RPS Entertainment

Website

Rock Paper Scissors Entertainment, one of Elastic's partner studios co-founded by Angus Wall and Linda Carlson, is the production company behind many notable and award-winning films like 13th, Icarus, Winter on Fire, and Strokes of Genius. For their very first website, Rock Paper Scissors Entertainment wanted a simple but bold website. In the process of designing the website, I also cleaned up and refreshed the logo.

Turning Point School

Branding & Website

Turning Point School is not just a great educational experience, but also a great community of teachers and families, all working together to create a positive equation. Dr. Laura Konigsberg, the Head of School, constantly draws from research in the fields of positive psychology and childhood development, along with her nearly 25 years as an educator herself, to provide unique insights and best practices on how to raise children in Preschool, Elementary, and Middle School.

As a school, the faculty and staff were confident in their teaching philosophy, but how does a school translate and communicate this abstract philosophy of a well-rounded education based in positive psychology research into a visual brand identity?

No single logo, symbol, or tagline on its own could really fully do the school justice in communicating their deep, enriching educational experience and philosophy. Together, we realized that we needed an entire Table of Elements system to breakdown and explore all the different elements of the Turning Point School education.

For most people, the website is their first introduction to the school and the new brand. With that in mind, we designed the front page to start introducing the idea of the elements and its categories before seeing how elements can combine and build upon each other from the very beginning of preschool until their eighth grade graduation. Then, they are finally introduced to the complete Table of Elements and invited to learn more about each individual element.

Within seconds and minutes, prospective families should have an idea of what makes Turning Point School unique in the competitive LA private school landscape.

The elements and education at Turning Point School are flexible and modular in order to adapt to different students and changing times, but everything they do is still based in rigorous scientific research. To reflect that, the branding as a whole, including the website itself, is designed to be flexible and modular in its layout while still being based on a rigorous grid system.

IBM Watson Experience Center

Multi-Part Immersive Experience

As part of the new IBM Watson NY Headquarters, Mirada was hired to create an immersive interactive experience to walk their various clients—from telecommunications companies to doctors, to CEOs and customer—through and show them how Watson can specifically help their company and industry. We created modular interactive experience that could be used to provide an individualized experience for each type of potential client.

I worked with a team of several amazing designers, animators, and programmers, under the creative direction of Jesús de Francisco, Craig Smith, and Vanessa Marzaroli, as well as the design lead of Stephen Lee.

My role ranged from exploring navigational UI and UX, typography & layout designs, icon designs, animation storyboards, and general production work.
