A Quiet Night in Paris
A Quiet Night in Paris is a French themed date night kit targeted toward couples looking for a quiet night together. The kit includes four different bottles of wine, chocolates to match, and a choice of two movies to watch, all housed inside a multiple housing rigid packaging set. The imagery is inspired by French Art Nouveau and Printer’s Ornaments. Hand-drawn type, featured on the front of the box as a title and on each of the movie covers, references posters by Jules Cheret and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Within the kit, a system of Printer’s Ornaments matches the wine and chocolate.
La Casa Azul
Inspired by Frida Kahlo’s life and work, La Casa Azul is an authentic Mexican Mole restaurant concept. The identity incorporates highly saturated jewel tones and collage. The brand includes a logo, menu, outdoor and indoor signage, packaging, and a mobile application. The app plays with Frida Kahlo’s penchant for self portraits, inviting users to create a “modern day self portrait.” The interior signage would serve as backdrops, while the includes stamps and filters and the option to share on social media.
This wayfinding concept, developed in collaboration with three designers, centers on pop-up science day camp on Sundays in the summertime. We developed the wayfinding system, map, and graphic standards for the event. Because the concept was an event that happened over six weekends and on six different topics, we challenged ourselves to create an overall brand with cohesive identities that fit within it. We developed a badge system to give each topic an icon, accent color, and pattern. The panels are flat and magnetic, so the signage can change each week and be stored for the rest of the year.
Pride and Prejudice
Trade paperback sized book jacket design for the classic novel Pride and Prejudice. The shapes are inspired by the ginger flower, which represents pride, a fact the characters in the novel would know. To encourage the reader to look beyond the surface, the title and author are blind embossed on the cover and cameo shapes of a man and woman are hidden in the shapes on the back cover.
