This event branding reflects the tension students face between what they think internally about their work and how they approach criticism. The reference to old-fashioned phrenology is modernized by vibrant colors and simplified imagery. A stamping process and hand-drawn typography emphasizes the intimate and frenetic energy of the portfolio review experience.

Transitioning from one gender to another is uncharted territory for most of us. We are content to conform to the gender we were assigned at birth and operate under the norms attributed to it. For transgender people however, navigating gendered norms is a little more complicated. To help alleviate the stress that can come with exploring and expressing gender identity, I designed a subscription skincare service tailored to a transgender audience. As a part of this project, I created a brand identity with a distinctive logo, a meaningful color palette, and gender-neutral copywriting. I also designed packaging, a series of ads, and a brand guide/view book to capture the core nature of the brand and how it should be implemented. By addressing trans people’s concerns for both their skin and their identity, we can gain a deeper understanding of how someone may transition into a more authentic self and how the skincare industry and the design industry can make it easier.

Liten Ørnäs by Christian Weber

Inspired by the Ornäs birch, the national tree of Sweden, these packages were designed for the high-end consumer. Series captures the consumer’s eye with a juxtaposition of traditional clean European design styles with rough hand lettering. Execution is highlighted with metallic foiling, vinyl die-cut lettering, and a minimal yet sophisticated duotone color palette. Series features original hand-lettering and romance copywriting.
