Anagram International - Studio Next had the opportunity to design a Party City booth at the Hello Kitty Convention in LA, California this year, celebrating Hello Kitty's 40th Anniversary! I had the opportunity to help design graphics for our Hello Kitty booth for Party City. The booth included graphics, Sanrio graphics, a handmade Hello Kitty that was given as a raffle prize, raffle boxes, and Anagram International Hello Kitty balloons (not pictured).
Picking a winner for the Hello Kitty sculpture!
I didn't win.
Frost Bites is a cupcake shop that would be located in Duluth, MN.
to create a delicious cupcake shop
Duluth needs a boutique cupcake shop available to them for all of the families with children, and all of the college kids. A cupcake shop that carries delicious bites of flavor, a friendly vibe, and a family tradition will be a successful place in Duluth.
People can stop by and have a coffee with a cupcake, buy them for parties or a get together, or have them available for a late night treat. Frost Bites will appeal to families and children because of the traditional and home sweet home feel, filling your sweet tooth craving, but also giving healthier cupcake options as well. Late hours will appeal to college students, and the shop’s uniqueness will appeal to the city's tourists.
My idea is to make my own “Worcafe”. At this special cafe, you will be able to satisfy your thirst and taste buds while being in a great work environment to get tasks done in your busy life - on the computer or you can even just read a good book. This cafe is one of a kind because you will be able to get work done while you’re here, and there is also a daycare in the back that will allow you to have your children play at while you work, if that is your situation. The idea of this Worcafe is to make it possible for parents to get work done in their busy lives without distractions, while having a bite to eat or just a coffee. This also allows their kids to have fun at the daycare while their parents get work done. The Worcafe isn’t just for parents, anyone is welcome to come hang out!
As a member of ADMAR, the Advertising and Marketing Group of UMD, I worked with the creative team to rebrand Walmart's paint line and competed against other schools for the final rebrand. I was responsible for sharing ideas and help with the designing and rebranding of our campaign. It was a great opportunity to work with a smaller creative team and also collaborate with a larger advertising and marketing team to come up with our best final outcome based off of their research and our design skills.
Within is an awareness organization, drawing attention to the reality of women dealing with insecurities and internal struggles.
For women to confront physical insecurities and struggles in a liberating and unashamed manner, through wearing a bracelet that communicates the fight against eating disorders and body image issues within our society.
Transparency: ability to open up
Boldness: seeking means of help through loved ones and resources
Perspective: of oneself and purpose
Growth: making progress towards defeating the issue at hand
Within was created to help you embrace the strength within the struggle. If you are not someone personally struggling with this issue, Within is an encourager to be aware of everything around us. Raise awareness by wearing your own Within bracelet, which communicates the fight against eating disorders and body image issues within our society. Join us to create strength, support, and awareness to women around us.
This video was made in hopes to show that women dealing with eating disorders and/or body image issues are not alone. Two beautiful women open up and share their touching stories, and we hope to spread awareness and support through our organization, Within.

My idea is to create a campaign to make sure you get up and go outside every day. Spending time outdoors is extremely beneficial to your life, and it can even be as little as five minutes. Being outdoors can make you feel energized and alive. So many people in our generation live busy, on the go lives, and forget to spend time outside with natural sunlight and nature. Being outside a little every day can better your health, help you gain independence, mental clarity, improve your attention span, and boost energy. It can also decrease tension, stress, and depression. Why not better your life and take at least five minutes to go outside and live the Light Life?
