A small collection of projects that played a big role in teaching me about the importance of patience  , play , and designing with (a whole lot of) heart  

Over the years I’ve developed an affinity for beautiful words and letterforms. Below are some experiments done in Roman script and my recent obsession, Blackletter. 

When parents are first adapting to life with visual impairments, the stigma surrounding vision loss instills communal fear that can have deleterious effects on their children. Through this project, the question we investigated was “How can we make education about visual impairements more accessible for children and parents?” We created a 6 part interactive book that uses storylines and activities to teach children about the science behind the eye, principles of empathy, inclusion, etiquette, and how to be an ally.

This project was completed with Jenna Kim and Jenni Lee.

With the deluge of negative media surrounding COVID-19 appearing on our social feeds, it is easy to feel despondent, uninspired and weary. Hope Browser is an interactive web project aims to deliver 'bright spots' to you every day. This site is a space where we celebrate community resilience, flexibility, and creativity, and above all, prove that there is a lot to be hopeful for.
