Story: 1st Friday Artisan Market

1st Friday Artisan Market is an open air market held on the first Friday of every month at Allan Hancock Community College in Santa Maria. The event is an opportunity for small businesses to come out, sell their wares and introduce themselves to the community in a fun and festive atmosphere. This was an on the spot multimedia piece I created within an hour of the event. I asked random business owners if they’d be willing to provide a brief on-camera introduction to their business. Then I wrote up a brief into, created a little Meet the Merchants subhead and added photos of each merchant. Using ThingLink I linked each photo to the short video introduction of each merchant.

Measles Outbreak Illustrator Infographic

This is a graphic I created using Adobe Illustrator.┬áThe graphic was used to describe several aspects of the measles outbreak, which was linked to Disneyland. A map chart was used icons to show the states affected with the icon size in correlation to the number of cases in that state. A bubble chart was used to show cases by age. Another chart used animal icons to explore the concept of “herd immunity.”
