Following the release of her critically-acclaimed album, Look Up Child, Lauren Daigle geared up for her Christmas tour. The tour featured songs from her Behold Christmas album, but performed in the jazzy style of Look Up Child. Inspired by Blue Note jazz album covers and the work of Saul Bass, I came up with a series of shirt and poster designs for Lauren and her team. One of my final designs chosen as the official tour shirt can be purchased here.

The Photographers Project is a blog with the mission to document the different ways that photographers work in or approach their industry/medium.

I designed this brand around the idea of a frame—a picture frame, a frame on a roll of film, a vignette of a larger story.

Taking the literal representation of a frame as a border, the hero in this brand is the outlined boxes. These allow for a really flexible brand that can be moved and reorganized and can act as a window to glimpses of your content. These “frames” can be used to feature a photo from the newest post, a “photographer of the month,” etc. 

The way the boxes interact with the type lockup was designed to give the feeling of being in a three-dimensional room—like a museum.

The mark (click photo to see more) is the intersection of story-telling and nature—the two things that drive Jonathan Quisenberry’s photography. Inspired by the rings of a tree and the topographical maps used by hikers to show elevation, I created a custom pattern that was reminiscent of the two. As Jonathan’s job is to capture scenes of his subject’s story, I chose to use the lens-shape of the Q as a window into the larger pattern.
