Logo Design

Griffins logo
Holy Family Academy, in New Hampshire, commissioned me to create a logo for their new mascot, the Griffin. Featured above is the final draft of the new school crest that I drew and digitized.

Pantheon Fitness-Presentation

This is a custom logo I designed for Fitness Pantheon gym.


I have been striving recently to improve my type setting skills by learning more about different fonts and the history of typography. As an exercise to see how much of this newfound knowledge sunk in I created this poster/info-graphic of font pairings.


The Salsa

by Salsa Santoro

The Salsa Salsa SantoroI enjoy mexican food, but as far as chips and dips are concerned I am quite picky. I was very excited to discover “The Salsa” because it is one product that I cannot get enough of! I was even more excited to be able to redesign their packaging. For this design I wanted something that was modern, yet reminiscent of its western roots without looking like it stepped out of a spaghetti western.


Steubenville Wine Fest

wine Fest ProductsNelson Fine Art & Gifts was asked to set up a booth at the Steubenville Wine fest filled with commemorative gifts and memorabilia. This was a good opportunity for the company to branch out and get some publicity, as well as a great excuse for me to flex my illustrative muscles and create some original designs in Photoshop and Illustrator. Here are some examples:Wine Illustration
