I created year-end reports for Chicago Community Bond Fund in 2017 and 2018 to communicate the organization’s achievements to funders, supporters, and the public. The report incorporated CCBF’s mission and history, as well as highlighting stories of individuals it had freed from pre-trail incarceration.
I created skyline-themed centerpieces for Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras’ 2018 West Side Story-themed gala. Echoing imagery used in the event invitation, I designed a geometric skyline illustration that was printed and die-cut in styrene. The centerpieces were assembled and lit from the inside for the event. The blue interior created a contrast to the red and black color-scheme of the rest of the event decor.
For Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras’ fall 2017 performance, I focused the poster design on composer Lili Boulanger. The art nouveau-style imagery echoed styles popular during her brief career in the early 20th century.

Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras spring 2017 concert featured a world premiere and featured performance from Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche. I created imagery for the event poster that spoke to the themes of Kotche’s piece, “Infinite Tree.” The branding was also translated into web graphics and packaging for the concert DVD.
The Impact Report was created to distribute to Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras donors to update them on programming so far that season. The report needed to be a succinct front and back page while also conveying the exciting and diverse work the organization was engaged in.
For a Beer Benefit event, I created posters advertising a raffle and “Message in a Bottle” game. These expanded on the existing event logo to include original illustrations and create a fun, inviting atmosphere that enticed guests to participate in games.
For Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras’ West Side Story-themed Gala, I borrowed from the musical’s classic imagery and color scheme (you can’t improve on Saul Bass!). With the addition of a skyline image, I used these graphics for diverse applications including printed collateral, wrapping paper, step and repeat backdrop, and event centerpieces.
