Nellie Victoria is a West Coast-based fashion accessory brand specializing in women’s hand bags. The company was founded in 2016 by designer Mary Livadas, with the goal of designing and manufacturing luxury handbags through the most sustainable and ecological methods available. The company’s name and brand identity were inspired by Livadas’ grandmother—Nellie Victoria—who worked as a seamstress in the Kansas City garment district during the 1920’s.

Illustration and design of the short story Perechin from Daniil Kharms' larger collection of short stories, Incidences. Daniil Kharms was an early Soviet-era surrealist and absurdist, poet, writer, and dramatist.
Perechin sat on a drawing pin and, from this moment, his life changed abruptly. From a contemplative, quiet man Perechin turned into a downright scoundrel. He grew himself a moustache and henceforth trimmed it extremely untidily, in such a way that the one side of his moustache was always longer than the other. And so his moustache came to grow somehow askew. It became impossible to look at Perechin. What is more, he would give a repulsive wink of the eye and twitch his cheek. For a certain time Perechin confined himself to petty and reprehensible tricks: he told tales, denounced people, and cheated tram conductors by paying them his fare in the very smallest copper coin and each time two or three kopecks short.
Redesign of Texts on Type: Critical Writings on Typography using only typography. Bold type in the fold and around the edge of the page is the focus of this design and serves to highlight contents, chapter openers, and the authors of each essay.
This book celebrates the invention of glasses through a series of incomprehensible pages (which are metaphorical for poor vision) that build to eventually reveal a message upon the final page.
This booklet is about the life and work of Keith Haring. The design pulls elements of Haring's own paintings to bring the same energy to the text.
Designed to announce the SAIC 2015 fall architecture lecture series, this poster plays with dimension to create a birds eye view of a city grid that invites viewers to connect the date of a lecture to the lecturer. Because all architects in this series cite nature as an inspiration, the images on the poster connect close up views of plants to architecture and city grids.
This book takes readers through a series of delicate hand drawn images of a forest. The trees move from dense and vibrant to sparce and dark, eventually leaving a single tree. Upon the final turn of the page, the reader passes the last tree revealing the message that "at the current rate of deforestation the world's forests could disappear in the next hundred years." This format makes the final discovery all the more impactful.

In the summer of 2014 Sarah took a bus trip from Madison, WI to Chicago, IL, connecting to New York City. It was an "adventure" full of interesting characters, flat tires, lost drivers, overpowering AC, and many detours. These booklets are two interpretations of the journey, moving from the skyline of the city she departed from and progressing ever closer to the skyline of her destination. The narrative can be seen broken down by hour in one version and whole in the other.
