Creative Direction / Design / Exhibit Curation / Print Production
In 2008, along with two collaborators, I founded Project Aorta (501c3) — a collective of artists, independent curators and writers who set out to impact the Bay Area art community. The project focused on representing a diverse range of artistic voices across many disciplines; creating access to funding and building awareness around issues facing young artists in launching their professional careers. It was a publication, a space of visibility and a center for resources all in one.
The project was sponsored by the New York Foundation for the Arts and Intersection for the Arts, and was a recipient of the Alternative Exposure Grant from Southern Exposure.
As a creative director I was in charge of design of all branding materials, media campaigns and print production in addition to art direction and design of the bi-annual Aorta Magazine publication.
