Here are a few clients already making it happen.
Teach For America finds outstanding leaders who commit to expanding educational opportunity, beginning with at least two years teaching in an under-resourced public school. Working shoulder-to-shoulder with students, educators, and community members, corps members go beyond traditional expectations to support the academic and personal growth of their students. The impact corps members have in the classroom fuels a lifelong commitment to their students and shapes the trajectory of their lives and careers.
We stand proud having designed annual reports, billboards, and multiple branded assets to elevate the impact of their work in the Greater New Orleans region.
The 2017 Ace Hotel New Orleans "Queens of New Orleans" calendar was developed and designed with young creatives from YEP Design Works, during my tenure as Lead Design Mentor. The calendar's popularity produced overwhelming demand and sold-out two print production runs.
Calendar introduction: these are the living, breathing queens who resonated with the creative youth in our design studio in the month of October, the year 2016, on the corner of Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard and Terpsichore Street. Some you know; they have earned a public title of “Queen.” Many are mothers, caretakers, advocates - mighty and too often minimized roles traditionally held by women in our society. We celebrate them and a future where women, girls, and all who identify in between have all the power and choice they desire.
Silicon Valley Rising sought to build a national movement and galvanize drivers and app workers who were fighting for living wages, union membership, and essential benefits from gig corporations like Uber and Lyft.
We created a logo and brand identity for Gig Workers Rising that symbolized the upward mobility and necessity of their campaign. We collaboratively developed a recognizable brand that clearly embodied their work and allowed for massive brand asset production. Their work is recognized nationally and continues to be a force in the fight for the rights of gig workers in California and across the country.
Project Peaceful Warriors (PPW) provides trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness programming to schools -- equipping students and educators with tools they can use to reduce stress, combat burnout, and lead happier healthier lives.
We created a logo and brand identity that might offer those who engage with it an experience akin to their work. We designed branded apparel and retail products that communicate their core values so that staff and supporters could share by wearing.
Be Loud Studios is a 501c3 non-profit that exists to amplify kid voice in a time where too many youth are silenced. Kids have things to say. Be Loud gives them the platform to not only share their stories, but to confidently broadcast them to the larger community. In the belief, that by doing so, youth will feel affirmed and confident to become more active changemakers, listeners, and culture bearers.
I built a fun-to-engage-with, modern website to invite the community to participate in their efforts, feature Youth-created, SoundCloud episodes, and better communicate their work to the public. I encourage you to visit their new website, and check-out their great work giving young, local voices the mic.
Church Alley is a New Orleans business expanding to meet the demands of their customers. Church Alley is making the shift from purely brick and mortar coffee bar and café to providing customers anywhere with their house-made products and curated Louisiana goods.
I built a custom designed website that brought the best of their physical location online. We created a UX / UI + online experience that felt familiar to their existing customers and invited new customers to explore. We implemented a POS solution to manage in-store and online products in a synced inventory system. We designed a CMS blog platform that was simple to update and easy for readers to enjoy.
Every year, New Orleans hosts a new edition of the Love Your City Awards Gala. Over the last eight years, over 122 awards have been presented to businesses and organizations for environmental and social impact achievements and to empower change-makers to take on the next steps in their sustainability missions.
2020 has been unlike any other year. The Love Your City Awards team aimed to meet the year's challenges head on and wanted their website to reflect their intent. From a global pandemic to the fight for racial justice, the event encouraged attendees and award nominees to RISE UP together, and we were honored to work with the Love Your City Awards as they recognized New Orleans changemakers and supported local musicians, artists, restaurants, and families in need.
College Beyond exists for the “forgotten middle majority” of underserved students. Their students may not be eligible for selective schools, top-dollar scholarships, or application-based success programs, but they are academically dedicated and committed to earning a college degree. College Beyond serves Pell-eligible students enrolling as first-time freshmen at partner campuses like UNO.
I had the privilege to design their new website and support their mission to get students to and through college and beyond.
