West Coast Cook Book

  • West Coast Cook Book Redesigning a title by hand and machine
  • Type treatments of Helen Brown’s “West Coast Cook Book”. The first treatment, rendered entirely on the computer, uses a blend of playful typography and bold graphics to illustrate the title. For the second treatment (created entirely by hand), I used native west coast spices, such as garlic, cinnamon, and curry powder, to create a unique typographic illustration.


Gourmet Typeface

  • Gourmet Typeface A delectable typeface for an edible project.
  • Gourmet is a typeface that I designed during my sophomore year of college. Inspired by the proportions of the Roman capitals, Gourmet is an elegant font that uses exaggerated stroke weights and varied crossbar heights. The first two posters are computer-rendered promotional pieces, one structured and one playful. The last two are handmade experiments with the typeface on cupcakes, since the font was intended for use in restaurants, bakeries, and food packaging.
