About My Role

As a Junior Designer at Knock Knock I designed multi-page printed pieces using InDesign to create an array of different products that required strong type skills, layout design, and an eye for detail. I also created style guides for their signature products to increase efficiency when designing new products within the series. Lastly, I developed innovative design proposals for different products in a timely manner.

Die-Cut
Sticky Notes

This is a new product line of 6 sticky notes that I designed to refresh Knock Knock's Classic Sticky Note product. During the design process I created presentations of the design and put together a manufacturing estimate request for the product. After the project was completed, I created a style guide for future sticky notes to be made with more phrases.

Compendium of Lines for All Occasions

This is a new book that is based on their bestselling series, of lines featuring insults, excuses, rejections, mind games, put-downs, and cop-outs. This is a redesign/refresh of the series. For the illustrations, I sourced Dover art that is a slightly different era from the original illustrations. When putting together the estimate for the manufacturer we thought a way to make this book more elevated is by adding thumb notches so that it would be easy for the user to navigate between each chapter.

ABCs Alphabet Cards

This a new product that was inspired by the African American ABC Flashcards. I designed the packaging and each card using a vintage inspired palette and photos from the 50s & 60s. The two decks that I designed was the Feminist ABCs and Escapist ABCs.

What Not to Say Series

After the success of the original What Not to Say book, it was decided to expand the book into a series with different themes such as love. For the new extensions of the book we wanted to refresh the design by adding color, different graphic elements, and new illustrations. I art directed the illustrations with outside illustrator and redesigned the book.

Journal Design / Typography

This Journal Series

This Journal is a series of journals that has different uses and themes. My goal was to design two journals that didn't follow the original design completely yet keeping it cohesive as a series. By using the original journal as a base design for the new additions to the series, I was able to refresh the interior and cover for each journal to make it its own product.
