• Plywood Presents 2012

    Identity, Design of Branding Materials, Illustration, Video Production
  • The creative direction and design for Plywood Presents 2012 pursued an embodiment of the event's goal to create a healthy dialogue surrounding social innovation between business leaders and creative professionals. Juxtaposing modern aesthetic through clean typography, photography, and infographics next to rich, illustrative typography and elements through hand-drawn components, the design sought to visually marry business and creativity - as well as complement the architecture and style of its retro-regal venue in the heart of the Buckhead community.
