Design Book Club


In January of 2020, I founded Design Book Club—an experimental platform for participatory creative research. What started as a simple discussion group, has grown into a community organization that facillitates and publishes cross-disciplinary conversations about the intersection of design, ethics, and social change.

I currently lead community outreach, programming, and am the principal designer. Visit the website︎︎︎ for more information.


Co-founded with Kris Blackmore.
Programming and administrative
support by Harrison Krohne.

This project would not exist without
the participation and support of so many
other people. It's truly a collaborative,
community led effort.

For You (and Us)


I collaborated with my friend, Tia Kramer, to create a visual system that represents her ongoing social practice project in which she crafts a series of performances for specific people, often involving entire communities and sometimes performed over several days or months.

The booklets are reminscent of playbills, yet communicate the varied, organic nature through risograph print process and hand drawn elements by Tia. I devised a flexible typographic system that will accomodate various forms of poetry-inspired layouts and interviews for future performance booklets. Participants recieve customized versions of the booklets with expanded interview inserts, and a clear plastic box to hold the collection.

Together/Apart


As we transitioned to a life of isolation, art + design mentoring community, Friendtorship, needed a new way to connect college students with k–12 students. The site has a flat navigation system with multiple entry points, allowing a diverse range of users to interact with the content in ways that make sense to them.
