Self Intro Type Poster

Last week was the beginning of Semester Two of the never-ending MFA program I got myself into (why do I do this to myself!?). I am a little more organized this semester. I bought a 3-subject, college-ruled notebook with dividers and pockets. And I revamped my blog so I can try to share what I’m up to with my 2 followers–one of whom is my mom, Hi Mama!
Our first project was pretty simple. A warm-up for the punishment that is to come, I’m sure. We each prepared something to introduce ourselves, using only type.  So … I designed a poster, featuring my scarf collection… tada!

Dust Jacket Book Cover

As part of an introductory typography course at Texas State University, Stephanie designed a dust jacket book cover. The assignment was to use only type to illustrate the content of the book. Stephanie found that most existing covers for this particular title are far too mild for the content, so she created a cover that reflects the darkness of Toni Morrison’s award-winning novel, Beloved.

Publication Design
