Poster design for Melanie Noel, poet laureate of Redmond (WA) and the city of Redmond, for Melanie's project titled "ABOVE/INSIDE: a wave occurs at the edge or surface." The poster is 2-sided, 19"x19", folded in quarters, printed with silver ink, and includes Melanie's poem "River Aviary Culvert" on one side, and a map of Redmond's river park on the other side, and 3 short poems written by Melanie's workshop participants, each assigned to a specific tree in the park (each marked on the map). Collaborative design with Melanie exploring the concept of waves of various types — sound and energetic waves, gestural waves, hands.



Neon Speaks program 2019

For two years I have been designer of many things for the Neon Speaks Festival & Symposium in San Francisco. This festival program's trim size is 5.5 x 8.5 inches, and was a collaborative design effort with Randall Ann Homan at SFneon.

Neon Map+Poster of Portland 

This keepsake map and poster of Portland Oregon’s best neon signs was developed in tandem with my first neon walking tour of Portland. The map was diligently researched and as up-to-date as possible. The poster side includes images from signs around town, each marked with corresponding numbers to signs listed on the map.

Belltown Paper

One of the first publications I had creative control over was the Belltown Paper, a neighborhood paper in Seattle, of which I was also the editor from 2000 - 2004. 

The masthead is my design, and I did all the photography and created an icon for each monthly edition, usually from photos of architectural details around the neighborhood.
