ELEGY: LAMENT IN THE 20TH CENTURY

EXHIBIT

2022

Exhibition branding created for the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This exhibition explores how artists create visual elegies in response to death, tragedy, and violence. The title treatment was printed on soft fabric draped freely from the ceiling, intended to represent a mourning veil, or the barrier between the living and those who have passed. A printed pamphlet with grief resources was produced for the Reflection Space.

WEST STRUCK

IDENTITY

2021

Self-directed identity project. ‘Gharbzadegi’ is a Persian term variously translated as 'Westernized', 'West-struck-ness', 'Westoxification', and 'Euromania’. The term was used by Iranians who were critical of the rebellious nature of youth in the 60s
and 70s. A divide grew between the generation who was “West-obsessed”, and those who were concerned over the loss of Persian heritage. At the leadership level, this rapid transformation of society frightened powerful religious groups, laying the groundwork for the 1979 Revolution. WEST STRUCK would be an exhibition that would display collections of objects from a lesser-known time in Iran that shaped the country we see (and don’t see) today.

IDENTITY, WEB↗

‘20/21

Visual rebrand of ARS NOVA WORKSHOP, a jazz and contemporary music non-profit located in Philadelphia. ARS NOVA was in need of a visual rebrand and website overhaul to fit their expanding vision for their organization. Inspired by labels on vintage jazz vinyl, their new visual language now feels bold and energetic, with a nod towards their long-standing legacy within the music scene. Together, we mapped out a user flow of the site, and discussed how to apply best practices to improve navigation of the site’s content. ARS NOVA is a long-standing organization with a significant library of past events and historical recordings. A designated ‘Archive’ page gives them a place to share their collection and past seasonal line-ups. See full site here.
