Portfolio Volume 4: Quick Facts

I will be releasing Portfolio Volume 4 in about two weeks. In preparation for this, I have compiled all of the posts that relate to Portfolio Volume 4 and placed them on my dedicated portfolio page. Below are links to the posts that span over two years along with...

The Research Lab

It’s been a busy past several weeks including a quick trip to Vienna for the D2 Conference. However, I was finally able to start my next project which will be a research lab located in a heavily wooded context. I have yet to illustrate a project situated within...

Harbor View Break Down

One of the final images that my upcoming Portfolio Vol. 4 was lacking was a view of the Boston harbor for my Long Wharf redevelopment project.  This view was crucial because it showed how one of the most important parts of the design, the tiered seating, framed the...

Portfolio Vol. 4

My latest portfolio released in 2016, Portfolio Volume 4 discusses new layout  and illustrations/diagrammatic styles. Over 35 posts break down each illustration and explores ideas of composing and refining portfolio presentation techniques.

Portfolio Vol. 3

Released in 2014, Portfolio Vol. 3 builds off of Portfolio Vol. 2 by introducing a new workflow that includes Indesign to better manage page and text organization. New image styles such as x-ray illustrations and exploded axons are introduced.

Portfolio Vol. 2

Developed in 2007, this was my second portfolio created after grad school. The layouts are relaxed with the text playing an important role on many of the pages. Except for the thesis spreads, each project uses no more than 2 spreads to describe the project requiring a denser use of text and images in the layout
