For our Bachelor of Fine Arts projects, eight designers from UVU came together to brand our graduating show.

Designers included Joshua Fowlke, Leah Poulsen, Brit Casady, Jesse Frost, Clint Savage, Marshall de la Cruz, and Amber Moss.
An animated type catalog for the website losttype.com - Lost Type Co-Op is a collaborative digital type foundry with 'pay what you want' pricing. I chose to display only a small selection of the 50+ typefaces the website offers. Sampling 'Chocolate' by Giraffage. This was a project at Utah Valley University, professor: Tim Coleman.

A network branding I created for my BFA project at Utah Valley University. Orca is a fictional television network that plays select films.
