David Miller
Graphic Designer

I'm a student at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. I love graphic design, photojournalism, and illustration photography. My photos have appeared in Jerk Magazine, The Syracuse Post-Standard, The Onion A.V. Club Chicago, and on Ralph Lauren's Rugby.com. Most recently I shot the The British Independent Film Awards, and the 17th Raindance Film Festival in London, UK for Raindance.tv. I was recently named the Society of News Design/Marshall Matlock student designer of 2009.

A message for ...

Three months have passed since we posted our stories and folded up the tents. We've gotten a lot of great feedback and some good exposure, and we thank everyone who took the time to click on our work.

We've all moved on to other things now – internships, jobs, finishing up degrees and starting toward new ones. As our time in the woods of Washington fades into memory, though, it's hard to forget the personal stories we heard from the men and women who have served our country.

All good things ...

All of us with our K Diamond K friends!

Well, last week we packed up and moved out of the K Diamond K bunkhouse, where we had been living for nearly seven weeks. 

Now we're back in Syracuse, working in a windowless, fluorescent-lit room in Newhouse. Don't get me wrong, the computer labs at the university are fantastic, but nothing compares to working in a window-filled room surrounded by beautiful mountainous landscapes.

Capturing the land

Today is our last full day in the woods of Washington state.  In thinking about how much I'll miss this beautiful place, I'm happy that we've spent so much of the last week really appreciating our surroundings. In creating our piece about the land, no seemingly impossible scenario or shot idea has stopped us from getting some beautiful footage.

Data+Nature

In addition to writing, photographing, and videotaping stories here in Washington, we're also trying to make a wide array of statistics and other "dry" data as interesting visually as it is cerebrally.

To that end, Dave Miller and I are working together on a series of natural environment infographics; combining graphically composed still images with graph and text data in a way that makes sense on a visual and emotional level.
