tongue twister

  packaging / branding  

Tongue Twister is a fantastical and whimsical hard kombucha brand created using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.  Kombucha already has naturally occurring alcohol, so why not add more? These fun drinks not only contain probiotics for your gut, but natural, bold flavors that will get you...twisted.


the wake

creative direction / layout design / photography / creative submissions

The Wake is a student-run magazine at the University of Minnesota. I had the pleasure of interning on the multimedia team for a year from 2020-21.

As part of the multimedia team, a fellow intern and I took initiative to create merchandise to promote the magazine. We creative-directed the project; starting with ideating at the beginning and creating several iterations of possible designs for a sweatshirt. Then, we selected a final design and moved on to working with local vendors to produce and sell the merchandise. I organized a photoshoot of the final product, and with those photos, designed advertisements to be printed in the magazine and additionally used on social media.

I photographed 40+ staff portraits in 2020 and 2021 using a portable background setup with lights.

Apart from working for The Wake,  I have also had artwork and photography featured in the magazine.
