Working in the Associated Students Publicity Center has given me a year of experience working with other students on publicity for their events. For many of the students I worked with, it was their first experience being a client. It also gave me a chance to work with an account executive and become familiar with the Basecamp project management system.

After meeting with a client to discuss the event, I developed a concept for the design and then put together a publicity kit including a poster, digital signage, banner, web assets, and sometimes special items like handbills, postcards, VIP passes, table tents and t-shirts.

I worked largely unsupervised on multiple projects at a time to meet distribution deadlines. Because of the distribution system, we are encouraged to design the poster first.

 In this poster for the Legal Information Center, my only brief was, "Please, no scales."

  This event, hosted by the Sexual Awareness Center focused on society's influence on the concept of "virginity" and the linguistic genesis of the word.

  This event happened the day before the Virginity event and was an event focused on shared stories from victims of sexual assault.

  The series of publicity I did for the annual Veteran's Day Ceremony came with an interesting set of restrictions: Red white and blue were a requirement, but they didn't want me to use any imagery showing war, soldiers, people, or any tools and supplies (such as dog tags, helmets, guns, or boots.) I used a simple pattern and carefully planned typography to emulate a flag.

  This Women's Center event was a huge hit on campus. The client was looking for a poster that looked like the current books. I chose a pearl necklace for the featured item because I felt that it both contrasted and complemented the tie of the original covers. Then I cleaned up the typography but retained a similar placement.
