A short list of odds and ends I've worked on recently. More details coming soon!
The Atlantic at the Conventions
Last summer, The Atlantic hit the road to cover both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions—and executed nearly two dozen events in Cleveland and Philadelphia. I was responsible for branding about half of our collateral, including the distinct look and feel for multiple daily events, plus a lot of fun extras including flags, pillows, wallpapers, and custom neon signs. I designed this stage as part of a collaboration with Refinery29.
When Boeing began to plan for its 100th year in 2016, it linked up with my team to stage a proper celebration. The Atlantic hosted a two-day summit on innovation in honor of the centennial anniversary. I led the design on the ground in Chicago—where I was responsible for filling four stories and a theater with our branding—and developed separate looks for the five thematic tracks of the event including velocity, size, and connectivity. Some fun highlights: adhering typographic thought-starters to glass walls, wrapping elevators and balconies and flags in our themes, and branding a splashy twelve-foot tall canvas for the entrance to the theater. Inside, I designed a unique backdrop for each panel to populate digital screens onstage; I also directed custom transitional videos to play between sessions. Here Margaret Gould Stewart, VP of product design at Facebook, talks on my set.
