BREAK IT DOWN
TYPOGRAPHY CARD SERIES
50 front and back square cards. Photos are a combination of images taken by me and ones found from Unsplash.
My Break it Down card series includes 25 different designs that have images of important figures in my life with typography that states the lesson they've taught me in my life. Although this project was done nearly two years ago, I wanted to include it in my portfolio because it was the first project I completed where I felt as if I had finally found my voice as a designer.
I wanted to include bold colors, typography, and create something that would inspire others. I have two copies of each design, so over the years I have been leaving one set of each card around different places in hopes someone sees it and feels inspired. Although my style and skills have evolved, looking back I wouldn't change a thing about this series because it has lead me to where I am now.

Created with Adobe Illustrator and After Effects
I've always loved character design, especially those with funky colors and proportions. I created Rebecca and was inspired by style in the 80's. This animation tells the story of a young girl flirting and falling in love at first sight.
AND TO MY HERO
Video created using Matthew McConaughey's acceptance speech
This video project was designed to bring Matthew McConaughey's bold personality to kinetic typography. Through a variety of textures, colors, scale, speed and pattern, the viewer get's a feel for his passion as he speaks. And To My Hero was made in Adobe After Effects.
