Most of these design projects in this portfolio are from class projects that are based on some real life professional design projects such as branding, resort branding, packaging, logo design, illustration, poster design and page layout. I always had a unique way of expressing myself with drawing pictures more than words, because I am a visual person. Now it is all about expressing myself or my client with typography in order to make their company stand out. My drawing style has always been a good tool to make a client stand out because I think more creatively when I draw.

Branding: First logo design in the graduating class for the design sequence classes.

Resort Branding:

This project is a rebranding of and existing resort. This resort is family friendly so I created a fun friendly non-expensive logo that can descibe fun by the sea.

Adding a Little Creative Play into Your Research Herald/Soho Chris Butler Evolve Collaborative; Paul Backett Evolve Collaborative

This workshop encourages you to think of research as an iterative act of discovery and decision-making. Empathy is essential in designing any successful product, service or experience. Whether your research is generated using a formal, large-scale approach or something more hacked, understanding how to approach your research when to use it, why to use it and how to use it effectively will help you build momentum for your big ideas faster and earlier.

Manhattan Ballroom Mori Taheripour Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania This workshop provides a conceptual framework to diagnose and situations. Effective negotiation underlies most successful business and personal encounters. Whether negotiating with a client, colleague or family member or in a house sale or a commercial transaction, there are measurable differences in results achieved by those who negotiate well and those who don’t. But effective negotiation is about much more than knowing the numbers or the facts.

My idea for this project was to let Annie Leibovitz a famous photographer women themed work standout with quotes from Annie on top of each spread.

“In school, I wasn’t taught anything about lighting, and I was only taught black-and-white,” she told ARTnews in 1992. “So I had to learn color myself.” Annie Leibovitz

Annie Leibovitz’s Classic Portraits of Women, Now in Expanded Form

“A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.” Annie Leibovitz

done work and just thrown it up: It’s a little daunting to me.” -Annie Leibovitz



Sontag helped to develop the initial list of subjects, but a reoccurrence of cancer prevented her completing the (nevertheless searing) accompanying essay, which was published in its fragmented form. “Her words were so beautiful,” says Leibovitz. “I wish she was here today to see what we’ve done.”

own rickety stairs in an old red-brick power plant in the East End of London, images from Annie Leibovitz’s 1999 “Women” project pulse on two giant screens. They alternate with more recent portraits: an image of the late L’Wren Scott lying across a chair, a tableau of New York’s female gallerists — even the Kardashian-

Offered a carte blanche commission in 2015 from the Swiss bank UBS to create a body of work for their collection, Leibovitz chose to revisit the series, this time enlisting Gloria Steinem as a collaborator. “She’s been working on the front lines in this regard for over 50 years,” she says. While the 1999 series made studied inclusion of “everyday” women, here the portrait of Denise Manong — a health-care worker at a pediatric AIDS unit in South Africa — stands alone within a constellation of well-known names from the worlds of business (Sheryl Sandberg), politics (Aung Sun Suu Kyi) and pop culture (Taylor Swift). Now, too, she has included Caitlyn Jenner, in an unpublished shot from the Vanity Fair cover session.

in formal pomp. Running the length of the room is a board, covered in photographs stuck with pushpins. On one end are old favorites and personal shots, including a picture of the artist’s mother. On the other are 22 more recent portraits including the primatologist Jane Goodall, the artist Kara Walker, the Senator Elizabeth Warren and the singer Adele at her piano. Stuck to the bottom right of the board are three Post-it notes marking subjects to come: “Malala,” “Marina Abramovic” and “Serena + Venus” (“When they hugged each other right when Venus lost?” Leibovitz says. “I was: ‘Oh my god!’ I took that picture, tore it out of the paper and stuck it on my refrigerator for the girls.”)

Formerly, Leibovitz used to feel the need to photograph her subjects in context to give a sense of who they were and what they did: But, she says, that no longer felt necessary. “It feels like people are more assured on some level of who they are,” she said. The project has changed much since its original incarnation — but Leibovitz has changed too. She admits that motherhood and ageing have both had an impact on her work. “There’s not enough talked about in terms of growing older,” she says. “You start to lose your body. My body was so instrumental to how I took pictures: it was practically a dance. I used to use my legs a lot, now I’m a little more sedentary.” Her more direct style of portraiture is well suited to the urgency with which she now works, grabbing what little time her high-powered female subjects can afford her, and what she will allow herself as she works to build on what she admits to be “a pretty profound, big body of work.”

new incarnation of “Women,” a series that Leibovitz created in 1999 for an exhibition and book. She will add to the new series as it goes, compiling some 50 portraits in total by the time the show reaches Zurich at the end of this year. The project’s original aim was to depict womanhood in its many forms — unrestricted by age or accepted beauty norms — and to portray women as men had traditionally been photographed, in their professional roles, and at all stages of life. The new series extends the theme, celebrating a new generation and the transformations it has wrought. “On some level I feel that this is an installation, it’s not a show,” says Leibovitz over coffee in an improvised reading room nestled amid the defunct industrial equipment. “The work on the boards is in progress. It’s meant to look like it’s being formulated. This is the

When asked why, given free rein, she chose to revisit this project, Leibovitz responded plainly: “As soon as you put something to bed like the ‘Women’ book, you’re

wanted to photograph — it’s an endless subject.” She paused, adding: “One of the great things about being an older person is that I am very aware of the scope of the work and the historical sense of it. It’s bigger than me.”

At the spiritual heart of the pinboard is a small black and white snap of Susan Sontag that overlaps with a photograph of Virginia Woolf’s ink-stained desktop. The project, when it began in 1999, was originally Sontag’s idea. At the time, Leibovitz “didn’t think it was a good idea — I thought it was too big and too broad.”
