Getting into college is a big deal. While working at Lehigh University our goal was to create something memorable and special that students would receive their acceptance letters in. We completely re-structured the materials students received and distinguished the materials in a way that was clear and digestible able for students and parents. The overall Matriculation packet contained an acceptance letter, return on investment booklet, brand book, admitted student brochure, and a postcard to RSVP with. By using coordinating colors and varied sizes we were able to organize the important content and create a youthful inviting experience for all our future students.

While volunteering with the East Penn Democratic Club, I was fortunate enough to be able to connect with a local candidate running for East Penn School District School Board named Sherrine Eid. I desigend yard signs, business cards, and palm cards. Sherrine was running for East Penn School District School Board and wanted to advocate for ensuring East Penn Students, Faculty and Staff are successful and compassionate contributors of society and have the environment, support, tools and knowledge to build lasting institutions and systems in our Global economy.
Lehigh University prides themselves on the idea that there is truly something for everyone. The goal was to come up with a unique way to showcase all the various clubs, activities, and extracurricular actives Lehigh offers. With over 150+ clubs and more than 40 intramural sports teams, listing these programs felt tired. I came up with the idea to collect and arrange specific items to illustrate the diversity of options students have. This image was used in our Matriculation Packet and related coordinated digital promotions.
