http://www.snc.edu

During my senior year at SNC, I designed over thirty full color 11x17" graphic posters for live musical performances in the Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts. Through collaborations with musicians and select professors, I was able to create unified solutions for advertising events to the students, faculty, staff and local supporters.  From my steady, organized workflow, I developed a thorough understanding of how to prepare and process assignments, from initial idea generation to making decisions concerning proofing and final printing.

To further my photographic skills, I sought out to shoot performances for the Theater Department at St. Norbert College and sold prints to students and parents via Exposure Manager.  Performances covered: Metamorphoses, Children of Eden, The Shape of Things, Frankenstein and Tartuffe.

Galleries hosting these prints may be viewed here.
