The Eephus League of Baseball Minutiae is my senior project. The name is referencing the infamous “Eephus” pitch, an incredible slow pitch designed to throw off the timing of a hitter. The backbone of the project is the Eephus League website, a community driven blog where baseball fans can upload photos, share stories and view information about all of the miscellanea and… Read the rest

The task was to create 3 window shade banners to promote the 3 areas of the College of Architecture Design and Construction. I wanted to emphasize the national presence Auburn has in these fields and communicate to prospective students that Auburn is an excellent launching pad for your career.
Imagery for a CD package had to be created using a scanner. I got the outdoor shots by taking a laptop and an extension cable outside. It was an adventurous process, but the images I got through the method were fantastic. I eventually felt more comfortable using the scanner than I was using a camera.
The card shapes are based off the Eames House of Card designs. We were assigned a period in graphic design history and had to design a set of ten cards and a “house” construction that showed them off and reflected the aesthetic of the movement we were given. I was assigned Constructivism, and had a great time researching the designers and artists in the movement.
