Several issues of the newsletter

I design Classified Information, the Lloyd Sealy Library biannual newsletter, typically a 20+ page document sent to every faculty member at John Jay and distributed to hundreds of CUNY librarians. Browse articles and PDFs »

At Lloyd Sealy Library, I designed the template for handouts.

The text of the handouts is collaboratively edited over time by various librarians (credits are always listed on the last page of the handout). I designed the diagram on the scholarly journals handout, which I use in classes I teach.

I also created the design language for library signage, inspired by Penguin paperbacks. The colors (chosen from John Jay’s color palette) denoted different kinds of signs, e.g., directional and policy.

Directional sign No food permitted sign

From 2008 to 2010, I was a senior designer at the College Hill Independent Newspaper, a weekly publication from students at Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design. It is the second-largest weekly publication in Providence.

At the start of the 2009-10 school year, I redesigned the graphic standards of the newspaper, inspired by 1960s nature guides. I chose classic type pairings, emphasized clear content delineations, and encouraged designer/illustrator spontaneity.
