Top 100 Places To Eat 2016
Brief: Each year, Yelp selects the Top 100 Places to Eat based upon restaurants' rankings within the Yelp community. As this list grows in notoriety, the need for a branded campaign, that can be minimally updated each year, increases.
Solution: For 2016, I designed the campaign logo, certificates and social media headers for the winning restaurants, as well as Yelp's Official Blog. This design will last for future campaigns that will span across the United States, UK, Australia, Germany, Spain, Italy, and France.

Brief: Create a project based on the word Ethics.
Solution: Armed with a unique personal story, I was intrigued by the idea that the pursuit of happiness could create an ethical dilemma. If we hurt others in our pursuit of happiness, is all forgiven because it is a given right? Is there an ethical code to follow that says we should not pursue our own happiness if it means hurting others? This is my story.

Brief: Find a way to help mend the relationships between motorists and cyclists in California's Silicon Valley.
Solution: iRules of the road and changes in infrastructure are difficult changes to make, especially in any reasonable amount of time. With the strained relationship between motorists and cyclists, what is needed is a change in mindset. By taking the RoadZen pledge, both drivers and bicyclists are promising to do their best to maintain a level head on the road. Reminders placed at various points throughout their commute help them maintain this mindset. This project garnered interest for use from Silicon Valley Bike Coalition, the California DMV, and Stanford University.
