Above is a wedding card I custom designed and illustrated for a friend. This is a 5.5in x 4.5in card that was placed on the tables for each guest during the reception. The top photo is the front cover while the bottom photo is the design and text seen upon opening the card.
Not only was this card used as a “Thank You” card but also illustrated the timeline of Juan Carlos and Nora’s history. The path of the plane conveys their journey from the year that they were born, till the day they said “I Do.” They met in Mexico in 1997, separated for some time after that year, reunited in 2007 upon realization that both were in Miami, and even though they separated after that, it wasn’t until 2011 that both were in the right place in their lives to take their journey to the altar on Jan 6, 2013. And the reason for the air travel/plane theme is because both are in Aviation in their careers.
Please do not take these images and claim them as your own. I have watermarked the front cover design to convey that I created this design myself. If you wish to have this design made, then please contact me directly. Thank you.
Due to the upcoming Presidential Election between President Obama and Governor Romney, there was a lecture that was held by UM’s Department of Religious Studies that discussed how faith matters in the election. In order to let the public and the UM campus aware about this event, a design for posters and postcard/flyers were required. The Department of Religious Studies approached me with this freelance opportunity and below are the outcome for each. The poster is 11×17 in size that was distributed around campus while the postcard is 4×6 and was mailed out to the public.
Many new updates are soon to come. In the meantime, please view the 2011-12 Annual Report I designed for the UM Center for the Humanities. Many of the photographs were taken by me as well.

These are two photographs of my Graphic Design portfolio that I designed and made (including printing) myself. The first photograph is the front cover design upon opening my portfolio book (and yes I did illustrate all of it, including my own personal logo) as well as my resume and business card. Second photograph was taken while a classmate was looking through it.
Here is a book cover design based on the book “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” by Hunter S. Thompson. In this design, I wanted to stay away from the concept of a psychedelic representation which has been the primary concept for past book covers of this novel. Instead, I wanted to emphasize the road trip in itself of the characters traveling towards Las Vegas before their main adventures begin.
Baby Shower Invitation I did for a client. My client gave me three guidelines for this invitation: the theme of the party would be purple, it was going to be a girl, and she wanted butterflies. While designing this invitation I wanted to emphasize the concept of butterflies and the tranquility of a garden, which is why I incorporated vines and floral arrangements along the border.
This invitation was a for a Birthday Party. My client wanted to base the invitation around the party decorations which included large teacups with red, yellow and orange polka dots. In addition to this, she also wanted to incorporate her Dachshund in the design. Since this was for birthday party was meant for children, I wanted to make the invitation bold, colorful and yet playful.
This is a cover design concept for a magazine called “Iridescent” which focuses on the art of Glassblowing. This issue is featuring the famous artist Dale Chihuly. I did both the photography and typography for this cover design.
These two designs are for a double-sided flyer for the company I was working for called Illustrative Printing & Graphic Design. The purpose of this flyer was to promote not only the company but also draw the attention of the viewer towards the service prices and specials going on.
Altus is a music festival created for a group project. This flyer is intended to promote awareness to teens and young adults. To emphasize the festival’s outdoor environment and mood, I chose natural colors as my palette with hues of brown and green.
