The advertisement goal was to show how the Surface is capable of handling software such as Adobe and detailed enough to become artist's creative platform. Although these were not picked, I was excited to merge my design and illustration skills.

Crystal Glass Studio
I had the honor of being part of the small crystal glass studio located in Portland, OR. I was able to work and design some plaques, murals, digital displays, and sculptural works of art for hospitals, universities, corporations, and museums.

t-shirt for pets
Bag for the expo
student project: Packaging design
Objective: Make packaging for anything of your choice
Object: Aromatherapy bottle
Problem: too feminine
Solution: Tone down feminine-esque type, and graphics.
I noticed that many aromatherapy products are geared towards females. This is why I wanted to make a unisex design that both genders will be comfortable using.
Too angular and focused on color. Not relaxing looking like aromatherapy should be
Too busy with the type, and the type face for the number is not working
Changed font and color
Still very busy: must simplify
Final design: much cleaner look
