My friends and I wanted something outside the traditional letterpress wedding invitation, so I designed a playful composition with emphasis on typography. I wanted the design to reflect the venue of the ceremony and reception, which has a outdoor venue with a pagoda.
The color is a royal blue, printed on Crane paper with Shed Letterpress in Durham, North Carolina.

For New Years, we concluded this message was going to be a special one. We had refunded $1.1 million to members via our Republic Refunds in 2015, and we proudly wanted to tell our members. After concepting with sketches, I suggested we show this special message showered in NYE confetti, placing each piece of confetti by hand to create the message.

Bonded Calling Campaign
In April 2016, Republic sought to communicate to our members how we've developed our calling technology to be differentiable from other carriers. My solution boiled down the concept into streams, or ribbons as the main piece of visual communication to represent the different data streams.
Our social channel banners and social posts reflected this concept, with streams of color to represent the 3 data streams. Each one telling the same story in a different fashion.

Before ---> After
Taking an inspiration from die-cut lines and ui elements, my branding takes on a simple monochromatic ensemble with a pattern. Rather than taking on any color in my identity, the simplicity of my ensemble represents the breadth of of what work I am capable of, and what mediums I work in.
My student branding project for an invented women’s empowerment convention based in Cairo. Project collateral includes the brand marks, mark and typography instructions, stationary, colors, typography choices, promotional poster, and convention badges.
