Designing a cafe that is opening in the newly re-designed campus rec center is one of many client projects that my visual communications cohort is working on this semester.

“Create a subversive advertising campaign. Choose ad campaigns and create 4 ads that are a mutation of the original advertisement. You can subvert the advertisement by exposing the underlying logic of the ad, or contradicting it.” When I saw this Gatorade ad, I realized that all Gatorade did was slap their logo on a photo [...]
In my ceramics class, our final project was to create a ritual involving clay. I eat oatmeal every morning, so I suppose that’s a ritual for me. I carved a cup of oats out of clay and let the clay dry until it was leather-hard. Then I made a time lapse video of the clay [...]
