Graduating seniors presented a BFA Thesis show titled "___ ___, yeah." inspired by reactions heard throughout the gallery. It highlighted the work of painters, designers, photographers, sculptors, printmakers, and media artists.
As the head designer, I led twelve graphic designers to collaboratively brand and market the show, including a website, exhibition signage, and the broadsheet newspaper below. It details the exhibiting artists' names and information, and folds down to mailer size. We sent, hung, and distributed an edition of 1000.
Though my concentration was in graphic design, my thesis embodied the different media that I worked in over the previous four years—sculpture, drawing, design, and performance art. I designed an event to raise funds and awareness for two local charities with which I had previously worked.
All guests were greeted by a maître d', seated with a full place setting, and handed a menu. Their servers, however, offered only small paper sculptures set on plates, course after course. Each course represented the body's phases of hunger. The entire meal was meant to induce a feeling of hunger. All proceeds went to the New Brunswick Community Food Alliance & Elijah's Promise.
The invitation and photos from the event are below.
