PERSONAL WORK

During my time with PBS affiliate Arizona Public Media, I worked on numerous projects such as brand development (independently and in cooperation with external design agency), signage, web design (in collaboration with developers), posters, financial reports and motion graphics.

The above mark was created in response to the need for a temporary solution while external design agency developed identity solutions. APM did not move forward with presented solutions and this mark has remained in use since 2007.

Thesis titled 92,160|92.160, 92.160 (ninety-two thousand one hundred, sixty|noventa y dos mill, ciento sesenta) being the product of the calculated estimate of the number of drops of blood in an average-sized human body; this work is the result of research on bloodlines or contamination of blood as a signifier for institutional systems created to isolate groups of people based on ethnicity, race, gender, religion, and physical and mental impairments such as the One-drop rule of the United States, the Nuremberg laws of Germany and the Cleansing of Blood of the Spanish inquisition.

The doll book is an accordion style book that extends over 15 feet and is typeset with the range of numbers 1-92,160. Each number represents one drop of human blood. The numbers are printed in red except for one number, which is set in black. This number, which is difficult to locate, represents the ambiguity of the use of the one-drop rule to identity an individual's race or ethnicity. One drop of blood is also represented as an embroidered accent on the book cover.

This book is rectangular in form to represent a microscope slide. In the center is a drop of blood encased in glass. Using typographical and punctuation structures, the numbers 1-92,160 are typeset in English and Spanish. As with the doll book, the numbers are printed in red except for one number, which is printed in black. Red strips of thread emerge from the structure to represent the flow of blood.
