Relish Works

Covering the shifts and challenges in the restaurant industry, I worked with the Relish team to create their Next Gen Operator website. The compositions are relatable but have a playful twist not to feel overwhelming. At the center of each illustrated mindset is the restaurant operator.

Lao Peng You

Rose Pizzeria

Rose Pizzeria is a new neighborhood full-service pizza restaurant located in Berkeley, California. The logo uses a hand-drawn script contrasted with a unique san serif to represent the natural and hand-made pizzas. Expanding off the logo, the illustrations lean into the brand's playful, nostalgic, and contemporary nature.

Aon Center How To Campaign

Aon Center’s vibrant neighborhood, excellent views, and sky-high new amenities provide such a unique and elevated lifestyle shift that a series of illustrated how-to guides was necessary. Each release came equipped with a themed, customized gift and tips and tricks to help users get the most out of every day.
