queering type


BRAND IDENTITY


queering type is a concept for an lgbtq+ focused design conference. This event invites queer-identiying creatives to explore how typography can be used as a communicative medium, or as a tool to develop strong professional identities.

This 24” × 36” poster features a selection of queer-identified designers, illustrators, creative directors, activists, and art scholars. They have each been assigned to a series of talks and workshops.
These name tags feature a bold design with room for customization. The tag may feature a pride flag of the person’s choosing, and has a dedicated space to apply pronoun stickers.

The decision to use only lowercase letters across the brand was inspired by feminist author bell hooks, who wrote her name with no capitals to shift focus to her ideas instead of her identity.


In designing merchandise for the event, I aimed to have a sense of fun and consider the experience of participants.

This fanny pack would be perfectly sized to hold papers, maps, business cards, and other small items while attending the event.

Today’s queer movement defies oppressive conventions of gender. If we are to consider designing queer visual identities, it is only fitting to look towards contemporary designers who defy rigid conventions of form and structure, creating bold and unprecedented new forms of visual language and communication.

This social media promo video features a fluid, fast-paced animation to demand attention and establish a loud, proud voice.
