Landor Olympics

I had the opportunity to design an in-house party for Landor Associate’s office in Hamburg, Germany. The Landor Olympics brought people together (all 20+ nationalities from our office) in a friendly celebration of teamwork. Drawing inspiration from Landor’s iconic symbols of the Klammath, the branding of the event is a nautical with relevance to both Landor’s heritage and the local community of Hamburg.

Team flags inspired by different neighborhoods of Hamburg served as invitations. 

The logo for the event was expanded into a poster series that counted down in advance of event day. Every day, a wave disappeared as the ship was closer to shore. Additional posters were created that emphasized the various team flags.

Although my current home is Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, I’ve had the pleasure of working with people locally and internationally, including Landor Associates in Hamburg, Germany, and House9 Design, in Montreal, Canada.

As a visual designer, I’m concerned with impacting markets and social groups in a positive way through thoughtful research and cultural perspective. My academic work and educational background reflects my appreciation for perspective. As a student, I studied visual anthropology and German while actively working towards a degree in Graphic Design at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, USA.

My personal interests in the field involve the relationship between people and materials produced for them, exploring object culture through reinterpreting artifacts. I’m drawn to the differences between commercial goods and the meaning embodied in their forms, designing things typically discarded and reimagining those materials when they aren’t.
