Major Accomplishments

Franz Ferdinand Fan Club (Graphic Designer) – 2006 – Present

Since 2006, I’ve worked with the official fan club for the Scottish band, Franz Ferdinand. I designed the membership card, the cover for every issue of the fan club magazine, the cover artwork for the fan club-only 7″ single (“Swallow Smile”), promotional fliers, and various layouts within the fan club magazine.

Theatre Pro Rata (Graphic Artist/Web Designer) – 2007 – 2012

From 2007 through 2012, I designed the promotional materials for every Theatre Pro Rata production, including postcards, posters and web ads. In 2009, I created a new corporate identity for the company and completely redesigned the company’s website. I was also responsible for designing any additional graphics or printed material, such as season bookmarks or programs.

I designed one of the pages for Helen’s fantastic biography of Franz Ferdinand. It’s the page accompanying the “Lyrics” section.
