This is a stamp sheet that I designed for the San Francisco Aids Foundation as a project for one of my classes. Each individual stamp features a person of significance that fell victim to the epidemic of AIDS. Instead of using portraits, I wanted to show the viewer who these people were with one glance at the pictures and a small descriptor. I kept everything black and white so to emphasize the red of the ribbon and remind people that there are many who have succumbed to such a disease and that with the purchase of these stamps, they are helping to fund research for a cure. This project proved challenging because of the extremely small space allotted to design something legible and aesthetically pleasing.

- All I know to be is doing what I love, and what I love to do is art. From graphic design to photography to fine art, I love to do it all. My experiences as a student has taught me many ways to create better design as well as more expressive art. From learning the intricacies of Adobe Creative Suite to the delicacies of letterpress and silk screen printing, I find myself to be a more well-rounded, ambitious, and creative individual. With all of this at my disposal, there is no limit to what I can create.
