On the morning of Saturday, January 28, 2012, the Boyden Library in Foxborough, MA broke ground. Designed by LLB Architects, the project includes a new addition and renovation of a 1960s brutalist building by Kilman Hopkins Greeley and Brodie. Collateral for the groundbreaking ceremony included an invitation mailer and program featuring a monotone rendering in the town's navy blue color. The typeface Helvetica was chosen to compliment the existing midcentury building and serif font Georgia was also used for its similar proportions. A reccuring motif in a simple broken line hints at the groundbreaking event. During construction, a job sign will be posted at the site, and the layout of information takes it cue from the vertical windows hanging from the clerestory of the existing building.Architecture, Graphic Design, Print Design2012/01

Common Boston is a volunteer organization dedicated to expanding public awareness of the built environment in and around Boston. The idea of the Common Boston 2010 brochure is a balance of rigor and playfulness. Pertinent information for events and maps are set with a tight typographic hierarchy utilizing the DIN font family to compliment the logotype. A friendly and playful font, Sketchetik, is utilized as the display face throughout the brochure for neighborhoods and page titles. Sketchy lines add a bold but balanced graphic element to each spread and complement the lines of the logo and the contours of the display font.Architecture, Editorial Design, Print Design2010/06
