My Racial Story Workbook

As part of my Advanced Document Design course, we created workbooks for the University of Pittsburgh's Office of Child Development. These books were created to help college students majoring in education teach and discuss issues of race. The copy was given to us, but all design and illustration was done by myself.

Mock Book Redesign & Collateral

In this assignment for my Advanced Document Design course, we picked a print item and then "rescued" it with design. I chose to redesign Suji Kwock Kim's poetry book Notes from the Divided Country. My design system and collateral pieces for her (including a tour poster and bookmarks, among others) can be found here.

Allegheny County Family Support
Pamphlet Design

As part of my Document Design course, we worked with the Allegheny County Family Support program to redesign their informational pamphlets. Part of my design was later incorporated into their final product.

Spotify [Mock]
Mock Newsletter and Design System

I created a mock newsletter for Spotify as part of a class assignment. We could choose any organization and then design a 4-page newsletter that fit that company's brand and content. The document shows my final newsletter, along with my rationale and the specifications used in the design.

InStyle [Mock]
Mock Fashion Spread

As a class assignment, we had to pick a magazine and design a few pages rigidly sticking to that publication's design grid and aesthetic. I chose InStyle because of the interesting spreads and my love for fashion. I also wrote the article content, minus the quotes.

My personal blog for book reviews and thought pieces.

Allegheny County Parks Foundation
Flora & Fauna Fridays

I worked with the Allegheny County Parks Foundation (ACPF) to rejuvenate their Facebook and social media strategy. In addition to suggesting a more consistent organizational voice, I introduced the idea of Flora & Fauna Fridays. The posts are written to engage the ACPF's followers and encourage them to comment on the post itself and venture out into the parks to see these natural plants and animals in their native habitats.

The Cut (Carnegie Mellon Print Music Magazine)
The Pop Voice of Asian Women in the West

I'm passionate about music, and I write and edit articles for Carnegie Mellon University's music magazine. In this article, I talk about Rina Sawayama's genius music and what she means to me as a fellow Asian woman. I've included a photo of the article in print, as The Cut does not have an updated website.

The Tab
Julie Heming, Author at The Tab

The Tab is an online news platform for university students. While I haven't written for them since 2017, I conducted interviews with people on the street, pitched ides to an editor in New York, and wrote fun, engaging articles with a quick turn-around time.
