Luna Norte X TJMaxx

Inspired Packaging

I designed this packaging with Erica Thornberry for Luna Norte. It is currently sold at TJMaxx, in stores exclusively. The purpose of this packaging design is to capture a vintage look and feel, not too literally, that still also feels modern & fresh and highlights the statement jewelry it is showcasing.

Wine & Oyster

Menu Design

I designed this menu for a restaurant in North Carolina.  The goal was to maintain the traditonal feel of an oyster bar menu, but organize the information in the most appealing, interesting & legible way.


Brewery Design

Psicodelia is a brewery based in San Diego and Tijuana, inspired by the foliage similar to both Southern California and Mexico. The beers are named after the cacti. Considering some cacti and succulents have hallucenogenic properties, the labels and elements have a groovy, psychedelic, 70s vibe. The brand conveys a message of unity through not only geographic similarity, but also shared visual interest. Psicodelia and psychedelia have the same translation related to the altering of perception.

I hand drew the logo in a 70s lava-lampy style inspired by Wes Wilson. I decided to make each element its own sticker, so each label experience is a unique journey individual to every consumer. I cut out pictures of eyes from old magazines to reference the brand’s core theme of perception. I used variations of the typeface Founder’s Grotesk backwards, forwards, upside down & reflected to further play with the idea of altered reality.
