Jigsaw is the production company of the Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney, known for his gripping and insightful documentaries Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks, and most recently, The Armstrong Lie, about Lance Armstrong. The new identity for Jigsaw uses dynamic typography to convey the director’s hard-hitting yet balanced approach. This project was completed at Pentagram under partner-in-charge and designer, Emily Oberman.
A new graphic identity for one of my favorite Brooklyn restaurants, Roebling Tea Room. The dinner menu changes every night depending on what is fresh and available at that time of year. We wanted to reflect the spontaneity and ever-changing nature of the kitchen in the menus themselves. We printed 8 different patterns in matte gold, in a range of sizes, to be mixed and matched each night to create different variations. I also designed postcards, matchbooks, and coasters that collage contrasting images and patterns together, creating a diverse graphic language for the restaurant.

Final project for Gail Anderson’s “Just Type” class. We had to produce a motion graphics video using After Effects. The video had to be set to music, black and white, and strictly typographic.
I chose to base my project on the idea of “a perfect day.” I asked dozens of people to answer the question “What is your perfect day?” Each answer was written on a dry erase board. I then animated each board using stop motion. The idea was to highlight the uniqueness and variety of the different responses by placing emphasis on how each individual chose to visually compose their response.
Special thanks to my fellow SVA classmates for their participation in this project.
