Logos & advertisements

I worked with EW journalist Alamin Yohannes to design the branding for a social media initiative called Raei — a romanization of ራእይ, which means vision in Tigrinya — that highlights imaginative storytelling projects from underrepresented communities. For the design direction, I took inspiration from both classic comic book panels and sci-fi aesthetics, and incorporated playful shapes and bright colors to evoke a sense of adventure and creativity.

solutions journalism summit

I won the 2020 Solutions Journalism Network's art contest to find a logo for their annual journalism summit. Initially, I created some pencil-and-paper sketches, then moved to Photoshop once I had narrowed it down. When coming up with the imagery, I was inspired by the location of the conference—the Wasatch Mountain Range in Utah. After my logo was selected, I worked with their team to finalize the logo based on their style guide.
