One of my favorite projects at The Jacob Burns Film Center is to design the posters and key art for our wonderfully curated series. In December 2016, Victoria Fuks and I, under the art direction of Susan Kineke, showed the entirety of the 2016 curated series posters in the Jane Peck Gallery.
This year I have had the pleasure of creating fun illustrations for underdog.io. We envisioned the adorable french bulldog mascot (designed by Justin Pervorse) in fun settings and holiday themes! These are a few of my favorites.
Fonts.com Hero Image
During the month of May in 2015, my design for the font Roihu was featured on Fonts.com as part of their rotating Hero Image. I created a simple, colorful graphic that was inspired by the local food movement.
Movie Quotes For Instagram
The Art Department of the Jacob Burns Film Center was tasked to create original art for movie quotes submitted by fellow employees for Instagram. Here are some of my favorite's that I created in 2016.
To thank the members of the Jacob Burns Film Center for their continued patronage, we sent out a cookbook before Thanksgiving of our favorite recipes! The staff submitted recipes are a mix of family favorites, cook-off winners, and crowd pleasers. I designed and illustrated the 18 page collection.
Dutchess County Farm To Table
In 2015 I began working on my Thesis project at SUNY New Paltz. The project, Dutchess County Farm to Table was aimed at getting local residents of Dutchess County to be involved with their local food movement. The project consisted of a live website that I developed in Wordpress complete with a shop, farm finder, blog, restaurant listing and events. I wrote all of the content and produced all of the website visuals. At this time I also ran social media accounts that were updated daily. I designed handouts for my thesis show showing the harvest schedule of many fruits & veggies as well as designed resuable grocery bags that are for sale on Zazzle.
Halloween Office Event
Halloween is my all time favorite holiday. Ever. In 2016, with the help of a co-worker, we organized a staff party complete with a costume contest, potuck lunch, and screening of Tim Burton's classic, Beetlejuice. I created the save the date, invitation, potluck dish card and prize buttons featuring the work of illustrator, Nicole Testa.
Silver Screen Dinner
Several times of year the JBFC hosts events for it's top tier donors. In November, Matthew Broderick came to the Jacob Burns Film Center to preview a screening of the film "Rules Don't Apply." I designed a menu, table signs and gift tag as well as helped coordinate the colors and centerpiece for the evening. Photos by Lynda Shenkman Curtis
I really enjoy creating invitations and printed ephemera for parties and events. Here are a few favorites that I have done for family, friends, and co-workers.
