These samples are promotional materials for ‘less.org,’ a fictional organization dedicated delivering personal finance advice, tongue firmly in cheek. I had to conceptualize the organization from scratch and then create a complete design system to support it that could be used across a variety of media, from multimedia videos to printed business cards.
- Conceptualize and develop a complete organization with a unique voice, clear audience, and powerful message.
- Create an effective, attractive, and complete design system to deliver the organization's message across multiple media.
- Adobe Photoshop
- Adobe Illustrator
- Adobe InDesign
- Adobe AfterEffects
I conceptualized this sixty-second video – made completely in After Effects – as a commercial to introduce less.org's message (and tagline!) and get the audience thinking about how they spend their money.

I built a number of web pages for the organization. I conceptualized the site as a collection of personal finance advice from other sites around the web, ranging from horror stories to pieces of good advice. Below are the models for the homepage and an article page.
Mock credit cards
Finally, I returned to print media with an interesting twist on business cards: fake credit cards. These bad boys initially look realistic, but deliver some nice, scary facts along with prodding readers to take a look at the website. These are front and back, and were a lot of fun to design.
