City of Tomorrow (fall 2020) showcased the collection and celebrated the life of Virginia Wright, a visionary mid-century Seattle art collector. I took inspiration from the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair, artifacts from which were displayed in the exhibition, to create this space-age identity and campaign.

One of my biggest responsibilities at SAM was the member newsletter, known as SAM Magazine. Three times a year, I worked closely with a project manager to plan and create this printed piece from start to finish. Space in the magazine was always at a premium, making every issue a new puzzle to solve. Content ranged from high-res art images to event calendars to COVID-19 visitor protocols.

After a three-year renovation, the Seattle Asian Art Museum opened its doors in February 2020. A bold campaign was needed to encourage visitors to return and reacquaint themselves with the historic building in the middle of a rainy Seattle winter. I created a series of ads combining imagery of the redesigned building with a wide range of ancient and contemporary works on display.
