I have set up this section for students to use as a resource for each class I teach. A prospective student can read an overview of the courses and view past student projects as well as see objectives and outcome goals for the semester. Current students taking a course will have all project handouts as well as a schedule for each project all available here.

2022 Spring Semester


Brand Identity - 310.02

Branding is the visual application of a companys mission and narrative. Through the design process, the visual needs to tell the clients story are identified and applied to a range of formats starting with a logo system. Students then expand this brand concept and design into a series of practical applications including, but not limited to, stationery, standards manual and potentially web interface, packaging, menus & brochures, or even environmental components. Students should expect to develop multiple brand solutions and applications during the semester. (3 credits) Spring

My overall passion for teaching is equal and will at time surpass my passion for the work I develop as a professional designer. Working with clients demand a certain set of skills that compliment my teaching methods. Teaching demands a degree of execution that amplifies those design skills. Both of course have design as a common denominator yet can be placed on a different spectrum of design. I have always felt for me to be a successful teacher, my methods as a professional designer must work themselves into my lessons and projects I have developed throughout the years. While completely understanding the importance of a ‘bubble‘ placed around the education and handling of a student and their work, it is vital to to understand what they will face once outside the confines of the classroom. I work to carefully create this space where a student is exposed to real world environment problems while still giving a certain amount of leeway that allows for a student’s ambitious solution to work well beyond what may be allowed under stricter guidelines and limitations of a client.
