As Communications Coordinator with FSCJ's Office of Diversity & Social Change, I produced a variety of creative projects. One of my favorite projects was developing our Diversity Awareness Poster Campaigns. The "I Don't Say" and "I am an Immigrant" featured real portraits of FSCJ's athletes, faculty, staff and students. The photography and poster layout were all taken and designed by me.
FSCJ's Office of Diversity & Social Change, provided many services that addressed inclusivity education, cultural awareness and equity for students of underrepresented communities. As part of my role, I established the design and aesthetics of its many materials. From logos, t-shirts, information displays, reports, presentations, posters and handouts, all established a visual identity for the department that attracted and engaged students, faculty and the wider community.
Along with my duties as Communication Coordinator for FSCJ's Diversity & Social Change Office, I was often tasked with providing day-to-day materials for the college's Students Success department. This often included designing printed or digital materials from brochures to email fliers.
Many large college's and univeristies have a Student Government Association and each has an official seal or logo. Despite 50 years of history, FSCJ's Student Government Association had no seal. One of the major projects I worked on was developing the SGA seal and logo. The development of the seal included design research to ensure the design style was consistent and competitve with other college's. The design reflected the FSCJ athletic's Bluewave logo and the college's branding style.
Project C.L.A.S.S. and K.I.N.G.S. were two of FSCJ Diversity & Social Change's academic enrichment programs. The programs were specifically designed to assist students in underserved communities who may be a retention risk. Qualified participants received in-depth workshops touching on life skills and academic achievement. Students who went through the program received a possible scholarship and business suit. My role was to provide headshots, business cards and visually document their growth. I also designed the recruiting materials as well as the end of the year Awards Banquet program.
