Directory —“Where are you headed?”
Flyers are massively important in setting the tone for an event and providing information. These raves in Los Angeles and New York City are booked and organized with a moving flow and varied sounds in mind, and the unique flyers for each iteration reflect the shift in tone.
Pro-mise/Previous Life —“An easy place to dance”
Two satellite party series surrounding Directory. While Directory positions itself to stray from strict or traditional branding, Pro-mise and Previous Life hold a more genre-based theme that finds itself to be more consistent. The flyers accordingly reflect as such.
Rolling Loud —“World’s largest hip-hop festival”
Several collaborative merch designs for Rolling Loud’s 2019 iterations for New York City, the Bay Area, and Los Angeles.
For Los Angeles, three designs in reverence and reference to its car culture, old rave culture, transportation system, and desert heat, the latter of which was designed with Bryan Rivera. “LOUD” sleeve print on orange long-sleeve is by Bryan Rivera.
For New York City, a custom throwback logo, printed small on the front chest and large across the back, alongside an Atlas-like graphic by Parks Perdue & colors and organization by Bryan Rivera.
For the Bay Area, a similar throwback logo with modified typography and less-prominent “pool rim” design in the background, with graphics and additional text by Bryan Rivera.
Ariana Grande —“Sweetener World Tour”
Two merch designs for Ariana Grande’s fall 2019 finale for the Sweetener World Tour, in the form of a T-shirt and hooded sweatshirt. Logos differentiate the two, one for Ariana herself and one for Sweetener. In collaboration with Bryan Rivera.
Boiler Room“This is gonna be straight energy.”
+ Half Moon —
Half Moon’s third Boiler Room session, this time in Los Angeles. On top of co-curation and co-organizing for the night, the flyer was an experiment in 3D work,
reflecting both the colorful physical space we showcased these artists in and the immaterial, ephemeral nature of a livestream.
Shade —“what’s the thing that you’re waiting for?”
The first collaborative shirt with Bay Area-based collective Shade, released in 2016. Focused on identity and communication, the front reads a simple question—“what’s the thing that you’re waiting for?”—as the back reads in personal affirmations two parties can approach together in comfort.
The second collaborative shirt with Bay Area-based collective Shade, released in 2018. Centered around the unregistered “service mark” US trademark distinction, Shade is presented as interpersonal action, support, and love, rather than a physical collective or product. The description laid out in the back, as well as the sleeve prints, present the sub-services that Shade can provide in your life, as you share it with those around you.
Girl Rising —“One girl with courage can change the world.”
A non-profit organization focused on ensuring young women around the world have access to education. In support of the Brave Girl Rising short film campaign, their needs included a subset in their website focused on the film, creating and organizing web assets, support in social media graphics, and MPAA compliance.
Mood Ring —“light moving : love feeling”
Flyer for a Scorpio season celebration at one of my personal favorite clubs in Brooklyn. Styled as an old album cover with a soft glow and a typographical excitement.
Club Chai —“The ultimate back-to-back.”
Flyer for a one-off back-to-back night with Club Chai’s founders, 8ULENTINA & FOOZOOL, at Mood Ring in New York City. It pays tribute to paper flyers posted up in bars and street poles with dramatic effect.
