Fruit CBD Seltzer

august 2020 


 To begin this branding project, I started off with using Pinterest to gather inspiration. I included imagery that inspired me for the mood, color pallete, illustration style, and typography for my imaginary Seltzer brand. I compiled my findings into a mood board so I could reference it throughout my design process and use it was a method to make sure I didn’t stray from my original concept.


Below documents how I ended up with the final design. I played with scale, color and layout all while mocking up the design on a can to see it in practice. In these steps you can see I am playing with balancing all the elements that come together to be the final design.

Final Branding

My initial idea was I wanted to create a seltzer that someone would stumble upon in a bodega and be excited to try. FRUIT’s packaging is bold & colorful, just like the beverage inside the cans. For the logo I created two iterations, one focusing on the ambiguous fruit icon, and the second a bold typographic logo incorporating the icon into the dot on the letter I. For each flavor profile I included an additional accent color, and blocky illustrations of the fruit.


I designed wheat pastings that would be put across a city to market the product. I chose to include fruit puns to add to the brand’s fun tone of voice.


Beginner’s Guide to Reducing Waste & Saving the Planet

Full book
fall 2018

Book Design

We all love the planet earth and want to do the best we can to take care of it. But that can be hard and overwhelming. This book is for girls ages 10 - 14 to read and learn about how to take care of the planet, even if they don’t already see themselves as young environmentalists. It covers topics from recycling to personal care, and everything in between.

I designed, illustrated, and hand-bound this book for my capstone project at Northeastern University in Fall 2018, taught by John Kane.

I started off my project knowing I wanted to talk about sustainability. I then worked on sketches of what I was invisioning for my book, and brainstormed the kinds of content I wanted to include. Through that, I was able to determine who my audience was.

After coming up with the overall concept, and brainstorm what specific topics I wanted to cover, I did thumbnail sketches for the full book, which I used as a guide throughout my writing and design process.

KIND Snacks

Graphic Design Co-op
january 2017 - july 2017

Bar Bar
At KIND I redesigned the Bar Bar, a booth that is brought to live events to sample bars. I designed 5 chalkboards, one for each product line sold at the time. I updated the design by adding food photography and the banner illustrations.

Web Order Insert
Using brand guidelines, I designed three different printed inserts that were put in deliveries from online web sales. The insert on the left was a double-sided print that included information about the KIND Snack Club, and a check list of the different product lines. I designed and prepped all files for printing.

“High Five” was designed for repeat customers and “Thank You!” for new customers.

Kjaer Weis Shade Finder

UX Design

Summer of 2021, Kjaer Weis launched its online Shade Finder, a tool for customers to use to be virtually matched with their foundation shade. Our tool had 3 components. 

  1. The ability to submit a selfie to our Pro Artists, who would then match you with a shade.
  2. A Competitive assessment, that would match you with a shade based off of your foundation shade at a different  beauty company. 
  3.  A quiz you could take that would pair you with a foundation shade.


I designed the experience of this tool for both Desktop & Mobile. My process began with viewing other Shade Finder tools, and seeing what they did well or not so well. It was important for me that the tool is efficient and easy to use. This means making sure all your options are clear and that there is no need for excessive scrolling no matter your shade.


The design of the tool on mobile was especially important, because most people who come to the KW website, visit on their phone. I made sure that on mobile you do not need to scroll to see any of your options, that the text is legible, while still not sacrificing the beautiful design.


I designed a few emails used to support the launch of the tool. The first email announces the launch of the tool, and the 2 additional emails support our complexion products and have a footer that drives to the tool.
