Art Direction, identity, graphic design, and illustration for June Gloom.
June Gloom is an annual weather phenomenon that occurs in Southern California and causes gloomy, overcast skies. Year after year, it results in increased rates of clinical depression.
A book named after the weather pattern, June Gloom is an illustrated compilation of some of the worst events to happen in Los Angeles during the month of June. Over the past century, we have bear witness to such events like the Zoot Suit Riots, the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, and the beginning of the United States' AIDS Epidemic.
Art direction, identity, and graphic design for Oh Shen.
Oh Shen is the phonetic separation of ocean—the distance between Asian and American. It is a visual arts and literary publication dedicated to privileging the Asian American voice.
Art direction, identity, curation, and graphic design for a mock museum exhibition catalog and poster series on gender politics in East Asian contemporary art and pop culture.
Art direction, graphic design, and illustration for a lenticular poster describing the perils "comfort women" faced during World War 2.
The public service announcement was a reaction to the Japanese Nationalist backlash towards the Comfort Women statues. When the conflict arrived state-side (with the placement of a statue in Glendale), the poster acted as a more direct voice of the history that isn't necessarily heard when viewing the memorial statue on its own.
Berlin has a history of walls. While the remnants of the Berlin Wall now stand with graffiti-art and a new message, other walls (and signposts) in Berlin carry messages upon messages, separated by layers of wheatpaste.
Party is Over is a lo-fi lenticular, origami poster devoid of a written message, disrupting the visual noise of the CMYK landscape of Berlin.
