AJC Peachtree Road Race 2018 - logo design entry

Image
This design was created and submitted for consideration as the AJC Peachtree Road Race 2018 logo. The design was inspired by 80’s-styled movie posters. A silhouette of the city is back-lit by a setting sun (in the shape of a peach). The typeface and colors follow the reference design-pattern. This style was chosen for it’s relaxed vibe and fun color palette.

Product Design Sketch for a Presentation

Image
This sketch was commissioned to be part of a product design presentation. The new product will work in conjunction with the Apple TV device. This sketch shows the Apple TV device in an interesting perspective, with ‘blueprint-like’ lines and measurements surrounding it, to reinforce the idea that this is part of a bigger, conceptual project. The original image was scaled to fit a widescreen Microsoft Powerpoint slide.

Memory Depotentiation at the Synapse

Image
This image generalizes the electrochemical steps involved in memory depotentiation at the synapse between neurons. A stimulus activates NMDAR, which then permit calcium entry into the cell. As the cell depolarizes, VGCC activates and allows more calcium to flow into the cell. This intracellular calcium-oscillation mobilizes proteins that will eventually cause the cell to degrade the AMPA receptors by means of endocytosis.
