A break from thesis updates for some “other-stuff” updates!
PortFringe is a fringe theater festival in Portland, Maine which I had the pleasure of working on this semester. As part of my Visual Identities class we all brainstormed and came up with concepts for a logos and branding. The class narrowed it down to four concepts which we then showed to the client. The logo that I designed was chosen and then refined and new materials were produced for the client. Here are some of the finals mixed in with some of my original ideas.
To see my process behind the logo, see this post.
Here is some of the process behind this logo.
I started out inspired by the marquees of theaters and how the architecture could have a lot of movement to it and life. Something about PortFringe that I thought was interesting was that they didn’t have just one area where the show would take place, but rather a series of venues that you would walk to. I liked the idea of abstracting the idea of a theater marquee into a logo that had a dynamic feeling to it.
I started out with sketches in perspective but ended up taking a photograph of paper on a fold to really understand the angle. After that I combined type from the letterpress that other students had created to add to the grungy textural feel of the logo.
Here’s the trailer for “SELFIE” my short documentary for thesis. Catch the video at the film festival this Friday (Sorry you have to be a MECA student to attend that one!)
There will be more showings after this if you’re in the Portland area of all the films in the thesis show (mine included):

Once my installation is up for thesis I’m going to have more photos but for now I’m doing some mock-ups of my work. Here is a poster that I recently did for thesis and used a free mock-up template (which are amazingly useful if you didn’t already know!)
Guess what guys! Looks like on June 21st I’ll be participating on a panel discussing selfies as part of the show SELF/selfie at ENGINE! Submit your selfies to the exhibition by tagging #selftheshow
Portland, ME friends!
Are y’all dying to give your opinion on selfies? LOVE them? HATE them? Stop by monument square tomorrow around 3:00pm for a quick street interview! Also it would be nice for you to visit me!
Selfies have been around since the invention of the camera. Selfies aren’t new!
Take a selfie and tag it to #projectselfiepride!
Not thesis related but I finally stopped slacking and uploaded my short film from last year! The goal of the project was to write, direct, and film a short narrative piece. Yay! Film!
I’m very happy that so many people are participating in the project! Keep contributing!
I’m really interested in having people from all over participate if you’re willing! Especially people who feel underrepresented!
Defend selfies! Be part of my thesis! Look for this instagram bar and tag #projectselfiepride
