Sleep is an essential part of all life. As essential as healthy eating or exercise, yet it receives much less attention. When was the last time you heard someone say their New Yearʼs resolution was to sleep more?
The concept for this poster was to simply, and accessibly, state how important sleep is to good health. I was inspired by the phrase “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”, a widely understood rhyme, that has been in use since the 1860s, which communicates the importance of healthy eating.
I used hand-drawn imagery associated with sleep- an alarm clock, and nighttime sky with a crescent moon- and a rhyming phrase to communicate the importance of sleep in an easily understood, and remebered way.

Two color screen print on French Paper- Manila Yellow Kraft-Tone Edition of 25
Sundays spent riding mountain bikes with friends is a crucial part of my routine. I can’t remember which pal started calling it “Dirt Church”, but it’s the term, I think, best describes the importance of the ritual. The stained glass window was designed to celebrate this church without walls.

The concept driving the idea and design of Welterweight Brewing Co was to create a beer brand that brews great beer in smaller quanity cans (8oz) than is currently available (12-16oz). Smaller cans cuts down on food waste, and resources used during production and shipping.
The name Welterweight was inspired by the concept that a person who can’t handle alcohol, or is new to drinking is often refered to as a “lightweight”, a boxing weight class. Following the boxing metaphor, the welterweight designation is a class above lightweight. This beer is for people who appreciate a good beer, but who don’t want to drink a full can. The figure on the logo, the typography and the colors were inspired by the Victorian era of bare-knuckle boxers.
