THE WHITE ALBUM
Joan Didion’s White Album is about her confusing and disorienting emotions as she navigates her way through the 1960s. With the use of type and black and white 1960s patterns, it visually shows the emotions Didion evokes in her writing as she takes the reader along her journey.
Rithe Whiskey is inspired by the women that were burned at the stake as witches in the 1500s. European governments executed between 50,000 and 80,000 alleged witches, most of whom were simply distilling spirits rather than practicing sorcery. Many of these victims were caught with vials of liquor that, if not prescribed by a doctor, constituted enough evidence to prove they were practicing the dark arts.

NoraHouse is a dinner program for strangers to gather, break bread, and build community. My inspiration for NoraHouse came from design professor’s late wife, Nora Richardson. Nora’s legacy is one of utmost hospitality. She was known for opening her home up to anyone and treating whomever she met as though they were a member of her own family. In Nora’s presence, no one was a stranger. My goal for NoraHouse is to uphold and spread this legacy.
The rebellion lamp's purpose is to evoke the feeling of teenage summer rebellion. In the design I wanted to capture the memories of hopping fences, sneaking out of the house, and staying out late. The lamp is all about teenage angst, and trying to break free.
