My love of design began with print. I was fascinated by the process of making printing plates and physically mixing inks for a press in my graphic arts lab. A design still feels most realized to me when I can hold it in my hands.

In an effort to increase awareness of their endeavors, the leadership of REACH requested a print piece with a flavor that reflected the tone of their organization.
The organization has hosted many international mission trips the front of the design began with selecting a photo of a visit to a school in South Africa. After editing the photo to create a greater sense of dimension, I integrated it with a "word cloud" that features the plethora of topics the organization's speakers address in their presentations. The design communicates an inspiring tone without denying the gravity of the issues the organization addresses.
