Typography & Print

The Welch School of Art & Design Gallery at Georgia State is gearing up for a new exhibition in the fall featuring artists that repurpose materials in their work. Curator and gallery director, Cynthia Farnell explains, “The act of repurposing in art is currently in the foreground of many contemporary artists’ practices and can be discussed in the context of pressing global issues about environmental and economic sustainability.”

I have been brought on to build the exhibition’s identity through communication materials. My role has been to identify the commonalities of the featured artists’ work and create a visualĀ  language that speaks to the exhibit’s purpose. In this process, I have created a visual look and feel inspired from the idea of found objects broken apart and pieced together again. This concept is seen throughout typography, brand mark, and print collateral (i.e., catalogs, promotional cards, etc.)

The project will continue through this month and be finalized by the opening, scheduled for October 6 – November 19. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10AM-7PM.
