Library campaign poster/flyer
Libraries have always been very special to me and my family for as long as I can remember, so I was devastated when our local government announced plans to close multiple libraries across the county where I live. I was not the only one who felt this way; concerned librarians and patrons created a campaign to show the government that the money used to fund libraries is money well-spent. For my part, I voluntarily created a design that was used as both a flyer and a poster in order to raise awareness for the cause.
Ruby Sparks. She's twenty six years old. Raised in Dayton, Ohio. Her parents died in a car accident when she was a baby. She was moved around from relative to relative. She got kicked out of high school for sleeping with her Art teacher. Sometimes she's embarrassed about her level of education, but she's such a good painter it doesn't really matter. Ruby's not so good at life sometimes. She gets sad and forgets to open bills or cash checks. She used to have an eating disorder, but she doesn't tell anyone about it. Her last boyfriend was forty-nine. The one before that was an alcoholic. She can feel a change coming.”
Recreated movie poster

Ruby Sparks is about a novelist named Calvin who creates the character of Ruby, who insprires him. Ruby later appears in the flesh, a living person from the pages of Calvin’s writing. Fox Searchlight Pictures ran the “Make Ruby Real” contest to promote the film, inviting people to recreate the movie’s poster. Ten winning esigns, including mine, received a limited print run. I designed my poster to show how Ruby originates from Calvin’s words. The text repeated throughout the poster is the description of Ruby that was used on makerubyreal.com.
