HKS Magazine

Alumni magazine for
the Harvard Kennedy School


The Harvard Kennedy School Magazine comes out twice a year. During my three years as a graphic designer for the communications office, I worked on art direction, design, and production work for a wide range of feature stories on alumni and faculty, and developed templates for recurring sections like Class Notes.



Summer 2019 Issue: Lead art direction of cover art and corresponding feature spread (magazine work in collaboration with the HKS editorial team, the design director, and the cover illustrator for this issue, Israel Vargas).




Summer 2021 Issue: Lead art direction of cover art and corresponding feature spread (magazine work in collaboration with the HKS editorial team, the design director, and the cover illustrator for this issue, Ben Wiseman).



Spring 2019 Issue: Lead art direction of cover art and corresponding feature spread (magazine work in collaboration with the HKS editorial team, the design director, and the cover illustrator for this issue, Christian Northeast).
Branding for the HKS Human Rights film screening and discussion series, featuring programming that explores human rights challenges faced around the world.






HKS Commencement

2020 & 2021
Branding system and presentation design for the Harvard Kennedy School’s virtual graduations held remotely during the pandemic.



This campaign was created for the HKS virtual graduation celebration. The primary mark, which includes variants for each degree programs, was built out into an array of different assets, including a typographic system and motion graphics for a series of private and public-facing web events, the schools’ homepage, and social media platforms.

This event branding design has been carried over into the subsequent 2022 and 2023 commencement celebration materials as well.




HKS Campus Signage

2021 & 2022
Branding system, environmental graphics, and digital screens for the return to campus in the fall of 2021 & 2022, with frequently-updated safety protocols as the school welcomed back students, staff, and faculty after a prolonged closure during the COVID-19 pandemic.



Digital welcome screens for the HKS return to campus








Digital animated screens across campus keep everyone up to date on the most recent COVID-19 protocols at the Kennedy School.
