Misc. apparel

Here are a few t-shirts designed for various organizations. I always have fun working with reduced color palettes and creating wearable art that people will enjoy for years to come.

East Side Jews tote

Tote bag for East Side Jews. The bag has a stylized map of the Silver Lake neighborhood with the Silverlake Independent JCC, East Side Jews' home base, marked in the center.

NCSY t-shirt

Shabbat Makes Me Happy t-shirt, designed for youth group NCSY's west coast convention. The shirt was a huge hit with a couple thousand-odd Jewish high schoolers who loved the translation of a religious message into a stylish graphic tee.

Jewish World Watch t-shirt

Proposed t-shirt design for Darfur advocacy group Jewish World Watch's annual "Walk to End Genocide." Winner of their online contest.


T-shirt for PresenTense Institute's summer entrepreneurship program. Their slogan, "From daring shall come the reward," is a quote from the book of Samson, alluding to the honeycomb Samson finds in the mouth of the lion he kills. I approprirated the imagery of the ferocious lion and juxtaposed it with dynamic bee trails to create a design that reflected the forward-thinking sensibilities of the Institute.
