Poster for the show Citizens for Optimism, a small exhibition that took place in Brooklyn in 2011.
We picked a sentence and illustrated it, and my chosen phrase was a quote from one of my favorite songs by The Smiths.
The illustration was featured on the book Playing With Type, Rockport 2013.
This poster was completed while I was working at Hardcuore. The tagline of the studio is The Power of Love, so the partners asked the designers to come up with visual ideas for the tagline. I thought the idea of fruit growing from a tree was a good metaphor.
Book cover done when I was still at SVA, attending Louise Fili's portfolio class.
My idea was to design a city guide to NY and use the subway tiles as a reference.
