Part of my ongoing freelance work for the Design Museum of Chicago, I was contacted to craft visual experiments while the museum's (now released) new logo that was in development. This was to help the museum ideate on the logo's potential in print and digital material. I pulled imagery from both their extensive ten year catalogue of exhibits and also created bold vibrant designs to make the logo attract attention and maintain legibility.
Since submitting these concepts, the museum has implemented a majority of the styles in the marketing material they use now!
I've also assisted with numerous art installations at the museum, with the most recent being the show "At the Precipice", an art show curating pieces about climate change. The pieces were selected by Colossal, the international platform for contemporary art.
I was also tasked with designing navigational signage for the museum's second floor offices. Wanting to harken back to older standard signage but with a pop of modern design, I printed rounded icons (modern) on black vinyl (older).
This created a seamless navigation which encompassed the design viewpoint of looking both back and forward when creating work. The images above capture all of the signage along with a screenshot of the vectors made when cutting.
My design poster "Waves Unseen" was featured in the Design Museum of Chicago's "Free & Open" Exhibition, chronicling Free and Open spaces in the city. The piece itself was dedicated to Lake Michigan.
I have also created a graphic identity and presentation proposal for the museum, but that work is under NDA at this time.
