A local elementary school wanted a mural in their library meant to inspire multi-cultural exploration through books.This 6 ft high, 18 ft long mural is now installed in the reading room, inside the library. All finished elements were created in Adobe Illustrator, but the concept art was hand sketched using a gray-scale set of markers. The artwork depicts a stairway of books coming down from a glacier into a fantasy land where children play with different books and the stories of the different cultures, six books are strewn throughout this land, African, Australian, Asian, European, Hispanic and Native American, and from each of these books, characters and animals emerge from their pages to interact with the children.

A few examples of the concept development. Not all were used in the final product.
A view of the final installation:
Darden Architects has given me many opportunities to render their projects and designs. This is a small sample of the renderings I have worked on/created that I am able to share. I render in 3DS Max, V-Ray for Sketchup and Lumion. Post production, per the norm, is done in Adobe Photoshop.
My position as the graphic designer & marketing coordinator means I need to create a diverse span of info graphics for the firm. Some of these are among my favorite designs thus far.
I work in Adobe editing software to put together video's for the firm I work with. While some contain proprietary information and cannot be shared, we are some that are public.
Using Lumion for an updated video, I used both After Effects and Premier Pro in tandem in this video.
Matilda Torres High School is a new campus in Madera, CA. The video was exported from Sketchup and manipulated in Adobe After Effects. This video was used for schematic purposes.
Duncan Polytechnical High School is in Fresno, CA. I rendered this video using Autodesk 3ds Max and utilized Adobe After Effects to the video editing and floating text.
My job also allows me to create graphics for social media and 'save-the-dates' for in-house events.
