In an effort to learn various graphic programs and work on my graphic presentation, I started designing events for anyone who would let me. I even got paid for some of them!

A visualization project for the Sauna Pavilion by Artifact Design & Construction, located in the Berkshire Mountains.
Located toward the end of a meadow overlooking a pond, this 600 sq foot sauna
house uses materiality to delineate program pieces. The main materials include
copper, timber framing and cedar siding for the sauna. The copper cladding
makes the building appear warm even on a cold day. In order to preserve the
copper during expansion and contraction, expansion joints and thermal joints were
In the summer of 2011, I worked with a Landscape Professor at Philadelphia University to help graphically render the vision for the Park West neighborhood of West Philly.
Located at the intersection of E. river drive and Midvale Avenue along the scenic Kelly Drive is
‘LUNCHBOX’. An urban kitchen that is intended to extend the pedestrian activity that exists in
the East falls neighborhood into Kelly Drive, LUNCHBOX is modeled after the concept of a produce
stand, with operability that enforces the casual nature of a temporary produce stand.
LUNCHBOX also employs tectonics that make it adaptable to other locations.
The intended users include joggers and bikers along Kelly Drive, as well members of the East Falls community, particularly those traveling by bus.
The object of this project was to create graphics for an exhibition centered around the word “Politics”. From this, I decided to create and exhibit titled “Politics of Freedom”, that would showcase memorabilia that define American Freedom. The color palette was derived from the Obama 2008 campaign’s rendition of the American Flag colors. Graphics developed include, the Entrance wall, postcard, poster, and object labels. All text, including the didactic text, was developed by me.
Azerbaijan Artifacts is an online (virtual) exhibition that depicts and explains aspects of Azerbaijani culture using artifacts (“objects”) as its basis. The coins section of the exhibition was designed, prepared, and produced in conjunction with the Karabakh Foundation using Foundation archival materials as well as images of materials from other trusted resources. The exhibition includes scans of visuals, interpretive labeling and text.
The feeling of reading a book was the driving concept behind the design of the exhibition’s interface. The design incorporates interactive elements, allowing the user to see both sides of the coin with half the space. The web version features a header and footer, meant to guide the reader through the exhibit as well as link to external resources.
The exhibit is also translated to a print version, incorporating coins, maps, and photographs in both the design and content.
