The Serving Library - Identity and Bulletin Covers

Show/hide project description

The Serving Library is a project by David Reinfurt, Stuart Bailey, and Angie Keefer (along with various contributors). The scope of the project is large, including a public website/archive, a small physical library space that hosts a design residency, and a publishing program which is run through both.

I created an identity system and three covers for bulletins from The Serving Library. While many brands desire high visibility, The Serving Library is more of an equivocal side project with a niche audience. The mark is used as a stamp of consistency rather than a symbol of the brand; its appearance on the back of the bulletins allows the identity to disappear in favor of their content, staying true to the original intention.

Cultural Network / Paradox Exhibition Design

Show/hide project description

Paradox was a collaborative exhibition on display at MICA in December 2013. As a part of the exhibition design team, I helped plan the overall aesthetic and layout of the show. Prompted by the title, my team decided to arrange the work in floor/ceiling interactions to emphasize opposites, with transparent plexiglass used to contrast the heaviness of the space.

My individual project, Cultural Network, embraces paradox by reimagining a traditional advertising pole through the banally peculiar language of Facebook events.

Üblich Chair Identity, Booklet, and Display

Show/hide project description

Identity concept, printed booklet, and furniture fair display for a modern German chair manufacturer. My positioning of the chair focuses on its unique, understated beauty that gives it the versatility to become ubiquitous throughout the world.

The unbound, A3-size promotional booklet is comprised of four leaves of A2 paper, each portraying a different characteristic of the chair and acting as individual double-sided posters. The display uses 70 screen printed, A4-size flyers, designed as individual take-away items.

Value Magazine

Issue #1 of Value, a magazine I developed, curated, edited, and designed. Created for a contemporary, culturally-aware man, it emphasizes well-made, reasonably priced products, and uses a playful voice that subverts the exclusivity purveyed in other fashion publications.

#GPOY: Tumblr T-shirts

Show/hide project description

#GPOY is a line of hand sewn t-shirts appropriating images that are popular on Tumblr. By taking these esoteric and arbitrary clichés out of their original context, I examine their absurdity and investigate the changing definition of popular culture in the digital age.

The project comprises hand sewn, self-designed t-shirts, product photography, a logotype, printed lookbook, and hangtags.
