“Cover”ing a Year

Sorry for the lack of activity, but as an update, I wanted to document some of my favorite covers I have shot and designed/helped design over the past school year for The Towerlight. Doing cover is a stressful and at times lengthy process, but I love photos, I love typography, and I love Photoshop, so designing cover gives me a chance to use my creativity like no other job does. I’ve learned so much from each cover, and getting to work with other creative-minded people to create something is always rewarding.

It’s especially cool to see a photo I’ve taken as simple as a file photo, as was the case for “Eyes on West,” or from a photo shoot, like “Mr 1,000,” or just a luckily timed shot, as was the case for “We Are One,” become cover image. Afterwards, finding the perfect marriage of type and photo is challenging at times, but it is most certainly fun.

Below, you can find links to the articles to which these covers correspond.

Brittany Snow and Love is Louder

Brittany Snow and Courtney Knowles, the founders of the organization Love is Louder came and visited Towson, which has a large Love is Louder club.

This event was originally shot April 23rd, 2013 and the Towerlight article about it can be found here.

Common at Towson

Actor, rapper, and author Common came to speak at Towson University! I was not really familiar with him, but ironically enough, the other day I went and saw “Now You See Me” and kept thinking I recognized him from somewhere. Then the credits rolled around and it all made sense. Pretty cool!
