My 2¢

A street fair stand that reuses a shipping container to promote local business growth. For visitors to the market, my 2¢ / a professional advice space is the co-working platform that delivers accessibility, quality and connection by encouraging openness and communication in its business approach and built environment. For small business owners: No matter what your profession is, you are not busy 100 percent of the time. You can dedicate that time to helping the community by donating your professional services. At the same time you are building your client roster. Who better to sell yourself than you, directly to your community! It is also a way to get people in the community over the hurdle of trying a new service and in the process, supporting local business.

National Museum of the American Indian
A museum way-finding and signage design focused on distinguishing a historic landmark building–the U.S. Customs House in downtown Manhattan–with the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian’s mission and identity. The distinct program of each institution is defined by identifying spatial perimeters with color. The design acknowledges the metaphorical contradiction of siting a museum within a space historically related to oppression by encouraging visitors to “talk back” to the museum by writing on the wall.
