The Grey Book {sample pdf}

A poetic interlude stemming historically from the so-called conceptual art of 1966-1972 and part of a color-book series including The White Book and Inside Out. Consisting of one chapter and six sections, the layout of the book emphasizes the layout of text on a page, from freeform to constrained, while the words within the book emphasize the audible lyrical nature of the process of reading.

Mobility Case Studies {iTunes}

This book is a twelve hour project where I analyze several mobile design solutions from the designer platform dribbble.com. My critiques are based on four major principles of mobile design: navigation, contrast, composition, and conservation of energy for the user. The book concludes with my reformation of an existing design solution also from dribbble.
