My work looks at the relationship of typography through space. All of my pieces were influenced by my marketing and branding background. Because of my background, I am drawn to clean lines with lots of structure. I also wanted to keep all of my pieces black and white to keep that sense of structure and unity.

I have always been fascinated with typography when working with logos and different branding projects. I wanted to look deeper into how different letters interacted with each other outside of creating meaningful words. To do this, I played with creating counter form pieces to focus on the letter’s design instead of the meaning. I also combined letters to make various shapes and lines. Lastly, I played with letters overtop of photos and finding letters within a natural environment.

The viewer is given a polished and new perspective on typography.
