Original Music Workshop
Original Music Workshop is a performing arts venue located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn currently under construction. The space will be darkly colorful and very open with lots of dramatic angles, and I wanted the site’s design to reflect
this vibe while not distracting attention from the beautiful renderings provided by the architecture firm, Bureau V.
Curated promotional e-mails for StyleList, an AOL property focused on fashion and beauty.
sunday morning films
Sunday Morning Films creates unique documentary-style wedding films and wanted their brand to communicate that they are not a cookie-cutter wedding film company. I created a logo that incorporates a stylized infinity knot and
applied this identity to client-facing collateral. Building upon the identity, the website and blog are textural, ephemeral, and romantic.
aka is an entertainment advertising agency based in London. Their New York office had been open just shy of a year when I joined the team and did not yet
have a proper web presence. I designed and developed a responsive showcase site that feels bright and clean, allowing most recent work to take center stage.
wolf springs chronicles
Random House asked me to create a site for their property Wolf Springs Chronicles. It’s about teenagers and werewolves and love and such. I combined the key art with aged paper and leather textures to create a dark 19th century-
style mysteriousness, the period in which werewolves were most rampantly involved with teenage love.
scholastic book clubs ecommerce
At Scholastic, I’ve had the opportunity to work with well-known and well-loved properties such as Harry Potter and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. These pages, nested
within Book Clubs’s e-commerce site, create an immersive experience in which to explore the entire offerings of a single series.
The Coif is a beauty/grooming blog for guys, because guys like being pretty, too. The Coif’s mark is masculine without taking itself too seriously.
The website designs carry through a gentlemanly vibe, with photos of well-groomed guys front and center.
scholastic reading initiative
I proposed this design for a Scholastic reading initiative wherein children post what they are excited to read next. I designed the ‘Pledge Your Love of Reading’ mark to resemble an official yet playful badge. Since this is a spring program,
I wanted the site to feel bright and inviting. The sky and clouds background create a sense of imagination while the vines represent growth.
Seraphina is a YA novel in which author Rachel Hartman created an alternative-medieval world (to quoth Amazon) where humans and dragons walk amongst
each other and hang out. I designed the site to be contained within a parchment scroll against a medieval-style tapestry.
LuAnn Claps is a makeup artist with over 15 years experience working in films and is super-talented and knowledgable in her field. More importantly, she did the makeup for the movie Center Stage. I grew up figure skating and was
obsessed with that movie. Anyway, she was looking for an identity that was both feminine and a little sexy. I created a logo for use in print and a theatrical, smokey treatment for her website.
The Lyons is a Broadway play about a dysfunctional family finding the humor in dark, shitty situations. For the website I developed a torn paper theme to surface a sense of being ‘rough around the edges’. To contrast this roughness, the colors
are bright and cheerful. This site is responsive, which I believe was a first for a Broadway show. Work done at aka. Creative direction: Bashan Aquart.
the book of mormon
The Book of Mormon has won nine Tony Awards, some Grammy’s, is on a national tour, etc etc. It’s really popular. It’s hard to get tickets and they’re expensive. So the aka team developed an iOS app in conjunction with other
marketing initiatives that functioned as a lottery registry so that people could enter to win some coveted BOM tickets.
Rob Monohan and Neil Alleva know more about chocolate than anyone in NYC. Probably. The first Professor Chocolate book covers shops in downtown NYC and Brooklyn. We wanted to imbue the book and related blog with a sense of adventure and craft, so I built a curiosity cabinet for the cover.
The cubbies within the cabinet hold the book title and information as well as items that speak to the book’s themes. This visual language was carried over to the Professor Chocolate blog, where Rob and Neil write about their latest adventures in chocolate.
a streetcar named desire
A Streetcar Named Desire is a classic southern play by Tennessee Williams that has been on and off Broadway for nearly 70 years. This latest revival is a sexier, jazzier take starring Blair Underwood. With this in mind, I developed an
attention-grabbing website with rotating cast photos, critic quotes, video, and a news feed. Work done at aka. Creative direction: Bashan Aquart.
