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.
To thank the volunteers of the Jacob Burns Film Center, we threw them a lunch complete with movie trivia, entertainment, lunch (of course) all with the theme of Perfect Pears. I designed the logo, table cards, trivia cards, and the printed pieces that accompany the thank you gifts as well as helped to coordinate the decor and flowers.
Film Series Posters
In December of 2016, myself and co-worker Victoria Fuks under the art direction of Susan Kineke, designed posters for the curated film series at the Jacob Burns Film Center.
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.
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.
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.
B23 Restaurant Branding
During my final semester of college in May 2015, I was tasked to create a full brand identity for a fictitious restaurant. I chose to create an upscale French brasserie set in Rhinebeck, NY.
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
