Letters to the Moon Children's Book
This children's book was created across three different mediums to achieve its ambient look and feel. The illustrations of this book were purposely created in a way that it could be carried across different platforms of a business entity. The images can be used to tell a story through the traditional book form, branding, and storytelling for products or simply as greeting cards used in everyday life. "Letters to the Moon" is meant to be a universally illustrative design.
Traveteer was created based on the dire need for traveling volunteers to have a social network to join; in order to find all volunteering opportunities worldwide within one central hub. The purpose of Traveteer is to allow volunteers to add their reviews, sample application essays, photos, or stories to the community so others could use it as a reference for their decision-making process. A phone app was created to supplement Traveteer and mostly used when volunteers are in a foreign country and need a backup database of contacts, information, stored maps, photos, etc.
