I worked within the marketing team as well as cross-functionally with both the programs and development departments to support social media, email marketing, print + digital advertising, marketing collateral, website development projects, educational materials, b2b materials, etc. Designing in a professional, fast-paced environment among a team of creatives and brilliant thinkers has been an extremely rewarding experience that has encompassed life-saving work, touching millions of young women's lives every single day, which I am so incredibly proud of. Here are a handful of projects I worked on.
This is a collection I created for the Not On Paper show I participated in showcased at The Hokin Gallery in Chicago. I wanted to create a collection of items a child could bring along with them to a sleepover! This project gave me the opportunity to bring my love for animals, research, and illustration together and create tangible items someone could enjoy, and love forever!

I had the opportunity to work within the marketing and creative department during the summer of 2015 at the Chicago Sun-Times as a graphic design intern. Here is some of the design work I produced and that has been published. It was such an amazing opportunity and experience, that when the internship ended I stayed on and worked on some freelance projects.

A personal project about my experience of working at the very colorful & tasty Chipotle Mexican Grill.
A personal project about breaking the boundaries of what illustration can be. I chose the RedEye because I not only enjoy getting my news from the publication, but it is also something that is ALWAYS in my everyday life. I wanted to transform the RedEye Box and implement my style in a three dimensional way.
The project took off and got picked up by the RedEye itself, took over their social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook), and then led to a feature online written by Shelbie Bostedt.
