Curriculum Vitae (5/2015)

I have used web and graphic design as an artistic outlet for over a decade because it is a cheap and easy hobby. It is also a very practical hobby, and I am sometimes asked to design things for campus organizations and scientific societies. I am by no means a professional designer, but I figure I have made enough at this point to warrant a portfolio. I cannot afford real software, so I do all my web design in Windows Notepad and all my graphic design in JASC Paint Shop Pro 7, which dates from 2001 but remains a surprisingly versatile design platform (and more importantly, it was free). You can click the thumbnails for a larger view, and I have linked to the websites that still exist.

International Society of
Chemical Ecology

I designed a new website for the ISCE in 2012, and have picked up webmaster duty there as well.

Department of Entomology
University of Illinois (UIUC)
Centennial Celebration

In 2009 I designed the website and the logo of the Department of Entomology's 100th anniversary celebration.

Department of Entomology
UIUC

I designed this website for my department in 2006, updated the look in 2010, and continued to maintain it until I graduated in 2012.

The Hanks Lab
UIUC

My doctoral advisor asked me to redesign his lab website in 2008. This was my first swing at an all-CSS page, finally breaking my bad habit of formatting with HTML tables.

National Pollinator Week in Champaign-Urbana

This website was for the eponymous entomology-related event in 2008.

Amy Richardson Art

An art website I designed for a friend.

Entomology Graduate Students Association
UIUC

This was my first website upon arriving in Illinois in 2005. I was still stuck in a table mentality, so the internal framework of this website is, shall we say, less than stellar. Still, it doesn't look half-bad.

Logo
i5k ALB Genome Project

My tastes tend towards the highly stylized, so I get a real kick out of making logos. This one was for the Asian Longhorned Beetle genome project, riffing off the logo for the 5,000 insect genome initiative.

T-Shirt Design
26th Annual Insect Fear Film Festival

Not exactly a website, but it's graphic design, so close enough. This was the winning entry for the 2009 Insect Fear Film Festival t-shirt.

T-Shirt Design
27th Annual Insect Fear Film Festival

This was my design proposal for the 2010 festival, though ultimately not a t-shirt.

T-Shirt Design
28th Annual Insect Fear Film Festival

Another entry, this time for the 2011 festival. I had a lot of fun drawing the wasp nest.

T-Shirt Design
29th Annual Insect Fear Film Festival

My last entry for the festival before I graduated, and this one was voted as the t-shirt. An ant ripping up the Eiffel Tower - what's not to like?

Schedule of Events
National Pollinator Week in Champaign-Urbana

It took me forever to design this poster, so I'm not about to leave it off this list and let it fade into obscurity.
