I am a descendant of Russian-Jewish ancestry. My family moved to the north side of Chicago from Riga, Latvia in 1988 when the Soviet Union was still in existence. I was born in Italy, but I was raised the suburbs of Chicago. In 2015, I graduated with an MFA in Graphic Design from Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where I developed a simple visual solution to help travelers understand others and express themselves anywhere in the world. I enjoy working in all areas of design, especially logo development and branding. Outside of my career, I like to travel, paint, and volunteer my time with differently-abled artists. I currently live in Bucktown, Chicago with my English Bulldog, Chaplin.

Annual Report

Objective
Design the SFO Environmental Sustainability Report for 2012. Use innovative approach in displaying the contents in a logical, relevant, and easily understood visual system.

Solution
An annual report is a document that is difficult to read, because it contains a lot of data that is hard to connect. Airports are places of movement, where new journeys begin and conclude. My approach to this design solution is to form a pleasing flow from one page to another using the “loop” concept. As a result, the presentation of the information becomes more logical and consistent.
