I was tasked with designing the concept for Betty Crocker's Holiday campaign, 24 Days of Cookies. My concept illustrated the magic of the Holiday season, and how opening the daily 24 Days of Cookies email should be as special as opening a gift on Christmas morning.

Skillshare is an online community for creatives to learn and teach different skills. I recently took Jake Bartlett's class on Animating with Ease in After Effects.
For my project, I recreated my workplace building at Christmas time. We occupy floors 7-10 so I made each of the floors festive in their own unique way.
The tree on floor 9 is one of my favorite parts because although it's so subtle, the twinkling lights really add some extra magic. Speaking of magic, at my work there's a statue on the roof of a man, so I brought him to life in this animation and gave him a Santa hat to stay warm from the falling snow. The snow at the base of the building grows as the snow falls. Just before the building collapses, you can see Santa and his reindeer flying into the night.

Smashing Magazine runs a monthly creative call for artists and designers across the world to submit desktop wallpapers for the upcoming month. I've always wanted to submit a design but never got around to it, until now!
I was inspired to create this wallpaper one hot summer day when I was hanging out with my dog on our patio. Through this bright and colorful illustration, I want to stress the importance of keeping pets safe from the heat by providing them with plenty of water and ways to cool down.
The wallpaper comes in two versions, one with a calendar and one without so you can use it after July is over. You can download the wallpapers for free here.

I offer my design services to local animal rescue, Pet Project Rescue. Animals and rescue organizations are really important to me, so I wanted to donate my time and talents to help these animals find foster and forever homes.

I designed and illustrated this custom invitation for LeaderOne to promote their client appreciation Holiday party. In addition to the postcard, I created these coloring pages of their staff. It was fun to see the kids at the party coloring and getting creative, some even giving Liz and her staff bright pink and purple hair!

I love baseball. It has such a great classic aesthetic, yet is contemporary and current. I designed this baseball app prototype that engages the user, the fan, to take their baseball viewing experience to the next level. Check into games, keep track of your own personal stats, and record your memories at the 30 different Major League Baseball stadiums. A ticker at the bottom of the screen keeps up with in-game updates including no-hitter alerts, game scores, player injuries and more. Earn rewards and points for obtaining certain goals and milestones, then transition from the digital world by redeeming your points for tangible items like player profile cards, ballpark books, and team memorabilia.
Look back years from now and remember where you were when Torii Hunter hit that milestone homer, when Kershaw threw that perfect game, and when the Cubs won the World Series (hey, a girl can dream right?)
