A Towson University Marching Band feature: I followed the band to rehearsals as well as to this, one of the football game halftime performances, to document all the marching band does.
Playing with some “groovy” typography for a 60s version of “Twelfth Night.”
A cover I put together when the Towson Tigers won a playoff game against Fordham.
A cover I made after having the opportunity to shot Laverne Cox when she spoke at Towson.
A cover I designed magazine style for a feature on Marcus Damas.
A cover collaboration between myself and Devorah Roberts in a magazine style, talking about the now-NFL-drafted Terrance West.
A cover I designed playing with different fonts for a feature on some of Cook Library’s Jewish Collections’ works.
A collaboration with Sarah Hugel using an image from a play with words, “Between Trains.” Warping the text was a tedious but rewarding process.
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.
