The Sound Architects


Brand, Web, Print


TSA is a small sound engineering studio based in LA. Our goal was to create a sleek, experimental brand and website that played upon the dynamic elements of sound and audio reactive visuals. We created a custom modular typeface for the logo that allowed for playful variations across digital and printed collateral.

Protest Through Poetry


Brand, Web, Print, Social


PTP is an international collective of BIPOC poets and writers that came together in 2020 to affirm BLM and explore poetry as a form of protest and activism. We were asked to design and publish a physical anthology of their poems.

We wanted to create a bold but simple design, that gave physical space to the poems themselves and more importantly emphasize the symbolism of name, speficially those of our poets.
