interventions

year: 2019
role: conference designer at Scout

Interventions is an annual conference built and run entirely by students in Scout. It's also a celebration of design's implications in the worlds of politics, STEM, sociology, and more—2019's Interventions: Narrative paid special attention to storytelling in and through design. As one of two designers on the conference team, we had three months to conceptualize and execute a design vision in a completely foreign and utterly challenging medium: collage.

All work done in collaboration with Katherine Chao and Christina Allan.

GENERAL POSTER

GENERAL POSTER

I designed two versions of a general event poster—the first paid homage to the previous year's theme with a hint of the old poster in the top corner, and the second visually highlighted specific aspects of the conference that might be interesting to passers-by. Every element of the posters, from the scribbles to the torn paper, was hand-crafted by us.

SOCIAL MEDIA

Spreading the word on Instagram is key to any successful event. I designed two square Instagram posts and three vertical Instagram Story posts. It was a fun challenge to consider how the brand elements could inhabit these digital formats.

WAYFINDING

I designed a variety of large a-frames and easels for guests to find their way to and around the event. It's one thing to see them on a tiny screen—witnessing these printed at full-size the day of the event was pretty cool.

EVENT BOOKLET

GENERAL POSTER

Our final hurrah as designers was designing the 20-page day-of-event booklet that included everything from the schedule to speaker bios. Below are a few of my favorite spreads.
