The 1968 Exhibit

The social forces that swirled through the turbulent 1960s crested in 1968. It was a turning point for a generation coming of age and a nation at war. The 1968 Exhibit is a national traveling exhibition that chronicles this pivotal year in history.

As part of the exhibit’s installation in Pittsburgh, I designed the main graphic guiding visitors into the exhibition which was inspired by the retro pattern seen at the 1968 Olympics in Mexico. I also assisted with paint color selection.

The Story of Negro League Baseball Exhibit

The story of the Negro Leagues, as well as its tradition in Pittsburgh, is told in this exhibition through nearly 50 original paintings and sketches by award-winning artist Kadir Nelson.

As part of the exhibit’s installation in Pittsburgh, I designed the main graphic panel utilizing one of Nelson’s paintings, which is paired with a life-like figure of baseball legend Josh Gibson.

Pennsylvania’s Civil War Exhibit

This exhibit provides an in-depth look at Pennsylvania’s significant role during the Civil War – from Pittsburgh’s role as the “Arsenal of the Union” to the impact that Western Pennsylvanians had on the war both on the battlefield and on the home front.

As part of this exhibition, I developed the design of the logo and marketing materials, signage and wayfinding treatments, various custom hand-lettered storefront signage, and selected the typeface and graphic elements for exhibition visuals.

Gridiron Glory is the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s major traveling exhibition major exhibition focusing on the history of pro football, from its humble beginnings in 1892 to its rise as one of the world’s most beloved sports.
