Final_Final_Final Cal Arts End of Year Show 2022

Experience Design, Web Design, Branding

Cal Arts Graphic Design End of Year Show open to public May 2023. A team of colleagues and I led the experience design and planning of the show, to showcase BFA and MFA program work. There was an exhibition, website, and branding design.

This is the work // This is the time well spent, and all the time wasted // Especially all the time wasted // This is late nights in the studio, fueled by vice in a dark room lit by a computer screen // This is hands covered in bandaids after dancing too dangerously on the edge of a trimming blade // This is “it’s 0p1 off center” // And “Eh, who’s going to notice” // And “This is the worst thing ever made” // And “I’m going to be immortalized for this” // This is seeing for the first time in many years the faces attached to the zoom avatars //  This is Tatum coffee // This is staring into the middle distance, watching the sun rise alongside your accomplishments //This is hitting export and feeling as the bar creeps to full that you can finally breathe // This is the spark of imagination // This is the first ideation // This is the second iteration // This is the third revision // This is the final version // And the one after that // And the one after that

The website designed to be an archive of our 2023 year, including our work, our community, and our memories. As part of the web team, I was an active participant in the concepting, designing and coding of the website. In addition, we were responsible for acquiring and uploading all work onto the website.
