GENIUS AWARDS
Layout Design + Print Production 

2013-2016



I created promo materials, print ads, event programs, signage, and other collateral for The Stranger’s Genius Awards from 2013-2016. This was a production design role; I was given an initial design or piece of key art for that year’s campaign to translate into various pieces of collateral.

Shown here are the event programs for the 2013 & 2014 festivals, both art directed by Aaron Huffman. Aaron provided key art, typography, and design direction for the 2013 campaign. He gave me more freedom with the 2014 campaign, providing the key illustration then letting me work up other design and typographic elements. I had full design responsibility with event program layout after proving myself with earlier campaign pieces.
