ORIGEN MÉXICO

This book originates from the most profound love of land and identity. It is a convergence of talents, passions, thoughts, textures, flavours, creative forces, and unique sensibilities with an innate character, inherited from the indigenous cultures that have formed and illuminated Mexican culture.

From the materiality of carbon paper—the nearly discarded—to the impossibility of a typeface that has yet to be launched, ORIGEN MÉXICO reaches across time and space to deliver narratives that are multiple, rich, and authentic. This book honours the inherent beauty of the country and gives immense gratitude to those who have moved us to see further and deeper. All of the profits from the book support accessible education in Mexico.

Selfish Archive: Poster Series

An exercise in relinquishing control over digital graphic expression. Poster series made in collaboration with an old, busted Epson. Overprinting onto a mixture of white and green-lined office paper, the Epson would sometimes stop printing in turn creating interesting cuts in the compositions.

Featuring a collection of symbols, typography and iconography pulled from various forms of visual research. Starting as a small project to stay concious and aware of communication in the present has bloomed outward, sparking an art practice for myself to work with (as well as within) these bounds.

Think8 Global Institute

The Think8 Global Institute (T8G) trains individuals and organizations to fully understand their True Worth and with it create the New Possible for themselves, society and a world in need.

We designed an identity and custom typography that would reflect T8G’s divergent thinking and unique approach. Additionally we created a multipurpose piece, a publication/poster, mirroring their acute approach and fluidity of thought.

W CC / Womens Creative Collective

Women’s Creative Collective is an inclusive space for women with diverse voices to come together in order to share, reclaim, expand and challenge ideas and experiences that will enrich our uniqueness, our communities and cross borders.

The design draws from this core, finding the space in an intentional expression of opportunities to come and multiplicity of voices in a constant state of becoming through geometric shapes that build new combinations and a logo equipped for expansiveness.
