New work: COLAGE

New work: COLAGE

COLAGE is an organization that supports children of LGBTQ parents via nationwide chapters and meetups, along with self-produced guides, videos, and other resources. Working with designer Rafael Soldi, I developed a site that features a custom events display, an interactive map of local resources, and more. Coming soon: an e-commerce page for COLAGE-branded clothing and swag, and a membership-based, COLAGEr-only space for trainings and other materials.

Check out COLAGE’s brand new look!

New Work: NYU School of Medicine

New Work: NYU School of Medicine

After more than a year of hard work, with hundreds of pages built and contributors filling several floors of Midtown office space, the new and greatly improved NYU School of Medicine website has launched. My role has encompassed a hodgepodge of graphic design, style guide development, photo editing, and the establishment of site-wide “motifs” for photographic treatments. Additionally, a number of my own photographs (both commissioned and from my personal archive) are featured throughout its pages.

The result is a very attractive-looking, informative, and modern site that’s worthy of such a prestigious institution. Give it a look!

Matthew Desmond wins the Pulitzer Prize

Matthew Desmond wins the Pulitzer Prize

The Pulitzer Prizes were just announced, and I was happy (but not at all surprised) to learn that Matthew Desmond and his book Evicted: Poverty & Profit in the American City won in the category of General Nonfiction. Besides being a well-deserved honor, it means this important work will continue to provoke discussion and stir our national conscience.

I’ve been honored to work with Desmond in creating the site Just Shelter, along with his colleagues at Harvard’s Justice & Poverty Project, who did so much of the grunt-work of compiling housing assistance resources and other assets for the site.

If Desmond’s work moves you, be sure to visit justshelter.org and learn about the Evicted Book Foundation, as well as discover organizations working to provide housing resources in your area.

Just Shelter

Just Shelter

I’m very excited to announce the launch of justshelter.org, which serves as a portal for raising awareness of eviction’s role in perpetuating poverty, for sharing eviction stories, and for locating housing resources. Under the auspices of our design company Flare/ Fade,  Noele Lusano and I created the site for Harvard sociologist and 2015 MacArthur Fellow Matthew Desmond. The project was conceived as a companion to Desmond’s book, the just-released “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City,” which you will likely be hearing about in the coming weeks as Desmond promotes it across the country.

Just Shelter has already received mention in the New York Times, the Chronicle of Higher Education, and several other national media outlets.
