The images below are from one of the first projects that I completed in a graphic design course at Plymouth State. They were designed in the Fall of 2009. The purpose of the project was to create patterns in black and white using a single letter and a single typeface per pattern.

The images below were taken from a student project that I completed in the Fall of 2009. The purpose of the project was to create a calendar page design that could work in grayscale or in color. Each student was assigned a month and instructed to create a calendar page.

The images below were taken from a project that I completed in the Fall of 2009. The purpose of the project was to create two typographic pieces that represented words. The objective was to add as little as possible to the word and still convey the message. In theory, people should be able to read the words without actually reading the letters.
The images below were taken from a project that I completed in the Fall of 2009. The project involved creating a 15″ x 15″ grid composed of nine squares. The squares were all designed in grayscale and based on three initial designs.
Each square was created using a series of three letters and various shapes. The letters and shapes were laid out using a grid structure. I then rotated each square and changed the fill colors as I moved them around the grid.
The images below were taken from a student project which I completed in the Spring of 2010. The purpose of the project was to take one item and depict it in as many different ways as possible. This study of form and composition resulted in the creation of 30-50 different representations of the glove. Several of the best results can be seen below.
The Spring Fling is a yearly tradition at Plymouth State University. For this project, students were asked to create a spring fling poster for any band of their choice. I chose to design a poster for The Black Dahlia Murder. The band is known for their wild antics, which include running around on stage in an ape suit.

The images below are taken from a student project that I designed in the Fall of 2010. The purpose of the project was to create a holiday catalog with a cover and three spreads. I chose to design for a Two Guys Smoke Shop, a local cigar and tobacco store based in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
