A handful of covers I designed over the years for the business publication. This one, for a story describing Yahoo!’s last ditch effort, is my personal favorite.
What I love about this is that the whole image is a riddle!
It breaks away completely from the conventional formula of Headline ⇢ Image ⇢ Description.

(Watch eps) I created an animated graphic identity for Season Two of Internetting With Amanda Hess. I made so many assets! From Twitter promos to YouTube-only end-title sequences! Why is digital media so faceted! I am glad I did tho because now the season looks totally unified across so many platforms!
In 2017 Alicia DeSantis hired me for a number of illustrations for Amanda Hess’s column about internet culture.
(PDF) This floppy, self-covered, self-published magazine uses the form and pace of a children’s storybook to tell the story of power on this planet: from the way it exists in nature to the way humans use it, one big chunky spread at a time.
With subject matters such as securities fraud and quantitative easing, oftentimes imagery was scarse or shitty, and it was difficult to create a magazine with sustaining visual interest.

Seems like this was also the moment when I realized that having genuine fun while creating something is a quality that you can see and feel in the finished product.
Honestly this issue was the opposite of fun, and that is fine too.
This issue is hard to show in a portfolio context but I learned more from making this and watching co-workers make this than going to design school. Not so much the visual aspect of design but a way of thinking about narratives and topics.
2016 was extra special because we had the designers of the magazine live-design the venue as “human singage”. We carried out a set of programmatic routines that mimiced the typographic animations on the event website.
This was one of my first features at Businessweek!
(Launch site) A play on service-y type editorial pieces that showcases shoppable frumpy looks.
I am just pleased that I snuck in some classic and snazzy early 90s Martin Parr photographs for a story about dads because previously I have noticed that families in general and especially dads-at-leisure is something of a theme in his work.
