Branding for a three night campout / horror Film Festival.
Branding for the fictional band Juicebox. This two-person musical comedy group consists of Charlie Stagner and Ingrid Norman, two British singer / songwriter comedians that tour the world singing and performing acoustic acts. The content is known to be sarcastic, witty and very dry. Ingrid and Charlie were friends (and sometimes more than friends) in college who would commonly be found at parties playing the guitar and creating drunk improv songs together. The band gained much of their fame from youtube videos of them singing together in Charlie’s living room.

This self-promotional project not only represents me as a designer but also shows a more intimate side of my personality. To symbolize my inner growth and appreciation of the small things in my life, I designed a series of cards in an
