HOTHOUSE
Branding, Print Design

Curated by myself and Carl Durkow, Hothouse is a concept shop that markets distinctive wares and home decor made by Philadelphia artists. In creating the overall brand, we wanted something that felt playful and somewhat open ended, as we intend to shift what we do over time. We wanted an interplay with the word "hothouse"- so I chose to use a tomato flattened inside a house as a main branding element. More @hothouse.fun

Bill Viola
Exhibition, Branding

Exhibition identity, brochure, and invitation for I Do Not Know What It Is I Am Like The Art of Bill Viola at the Barnes Foundation.

American artist Bill Viola (b. 1951) is renowned for his genre-defying work in new media. His installations feature moving images that invite meditations on birth, death, spiritual themes, and the nature of human consciousness.

Viola's works frequently feature strongly centered compositions, which we chose to mirror in the exhibition identity. The invitation features black spot UV ink on matte-coated black stock, evoking Viola's art's quiet, dark nature. Exhibition wall texts were executed through silk-screen printing directly to the wall and cut vinyl application.

Branding, Exhibition graphics

Soutine / de Kooning: Conversations in Paint, organized by the Barnes and the Musées d’Orsay et de l’Orangerie, Paris, presents nearly 45 works by these titans of 20th-century art. The exhibition considers how Soutine’s paintings, with their built-up surfaces and energetic brushwork, served the art of de Kooning, shaping his groundbreaking figurative/abstract works in the late 1940s and beyond.

Barnes Art Ball 2019
Branding, Print Design

This invitation and program were for Barnes Art Ball, a large donor event at the Barnes Foundation. It was designed to feel luxe and vibrant, to stir up some excitement around the event. Art Ball was themed around Matisse's 150th birthday and the opening of the exhibition, 30 Americans. Restrictions surrounding Matisse iconography drew us to a solution of focusing on color and typography in this piece rather than shapes or imagery. The thin lines hint at the delicate linework in archival Matisse drawings. The color palette was drawn from Matisse paintings within the Barnes collection. As the invitation unfolds, you're introduced to each new vibrant color, and new glyphs in the typeface, "LOVE."
