NYU Alumni Weekend Identity

SoCal Grantmakers 2022 Annual Conference

The design for SCG’s 2022 Annual Conference — "Narrative Power: Reframe Stories, Redefine Culture" — is made up of brand toolkit with various design materials and building blocks, allowing the client to adapt the identity across multiple settings and instances. This dynamic identity reflects the conference's mission to challenge dominant narratives and imagine new possibilities for systems change.

Mosaic art in Subway Station
Idea

For this identity, I was inspired to merge NYU's iconic purple colors with the mosaic tile motifs of NYC subway stations. This concept celebrates the university's diversity, symbolizing how graduates from varied backgrounds and ages come together to form a vibrant, unified mosaic, reflecting the collective beauty of their unique experiences and journeys.

Continuing the previous years' "I Love NYU" theme, the identity playfully nods to the iconic I ♥ NY artwork, underlining the everpresent love alumnis have for their university.

Printed Materials

As part of the campaign, I produced a variety of items, including posters, postcards, name tags and more. These items were used to promote the event, but also as signage throughout the venue, adding a consistent theme within all materials.
