Orientation Hall | Client: Delaware Art Museum | Art Dir. Amelia Wiggins
In Spring 2018 I created a series of large-scale illustrations for the Delaware Art Museum to communicate the museum's history, significant collections, and contemporary programing. This series will be included in the Society of Illustrators 61st Annual Exhibition and Book. Here's a quick interview I did about the project, which includes shots of the prints installed in the space. I also worked with Greenhouse Media to create animated hand-type for a new museum welcome video.
AMPLIFY Disability Poster | Client: NYC Dept. of Transportation | Art Dir. Liz Jackson
A poster for the New York City Department of Transportation Art Program and The Disabled List, an organization that is creating pathways into design for disabled people. To create the illustration for the poster, I was paired with Jerron Herman, a writer and principal dancer for Heidi Lasky Dance, a company comprised of physically disabled performers. Mr. Herman has cerebral palsy, and our conversations focused on his experience of achieving asymmetrical forms of harmony and grace while navigating constructed environments that are not usually designed with his range of motion in mind. The poster reflects this by placing Mr. Herman in the formation of the golden ratio, a pattern that appears in nature and design and creates an asymmetrical sense of balance in the eyes of viewers. Mr. Herman then created a written description and poem inspired by the piece for the visually impaired. The back of the poster contains information about the disability rights organization, as well as an op-ed written by Disabled List founder Liz Jackson advocating for improved design made by and for people with disabilities.
The posters are installed in DOT art display cases in Manhattan’s Financial District and in Harlem, and last year were included in a poster exhibition at the Museum of Arts and Design.
