COVID Response

AgriLife served a significant role in Texas’ COVID-19 response. We provided free courses for essential child care workers, supported mobile testing sites across the state, provided millions of PPE, and kept Texans up to speed on the latest news related to COVID. AgriLife continues to investigate the shortcomings of our nation’s food supply, research the transmission of the virus, and work toward vaccines targeted for developing countries.

We created a graphic theme that was implemented across platforms to help our audience navigate our content.

Role Designer

One Pagers

One pagers and fact sheets are a staple for many organizations. Getting an unspecified amount of content to fit within templates can be a fine art of its own. Attention to detail in typography as well as an ability to edit copy can take one pagers from looking slapped together and archaic, to looking like a showcase piece. We put together 50+ various one pagers and fact sheets per year at AgriLife, some completely unique, and some from templates we create.

Role Lead Designer

AgriLife Today

August 2019

Worked within an all-hands-on-deck team to redesign AgriLife’s news site, AgriLife Today. At the time, AgriLife lacked any decent photography, which presented a unique design challenge in the age of full-width feature images. Clean lines and typography were used to create a modern design that would be able to adapt over time as photography became a higher priority. The redesign along with revamped news and social media strategies produced a significant increase in overall media reach.

Below is the comparison from July, 2018 to October, 2020.

Eye of the Storm – Hurricane Harvey Report

December 2018

Harvey was one of the worst disasters in U.S. history. It caused at least $125 billion in damage in Texas, ultimately, it produced the largest disaster response in Texas history. A year after the hurricane, The Texas A&M University System chancellor, John Sharp—who is  the commissioner of Governor Abbott’s Rebuild Texas—tasked AgriLife Communications with designing Eye of the Storm.

In this 82-page report, we try to create a clear picture of Hurricane Harvey. We document how the storm developed and how it affected Texas. We also offer a frank assessment of the federal, state and local response, and recommendations for how Texas can be better prepared to withstand future disasters. The report is both a record of a milestone event in the state’s history and a guide to “future-proofing” our state to mitigate the impact of future Harveys.
