merchandise

Several products designed for the Speed Art Museum’s store, for cinema screenings as well as social justice awareness around an exhibition.

amazing grace

For the screening of the film Amazing Grace about Aretha Franklin at Speed Cinema, I took inspiration from Aretha’s various album covers over the years and the typography and colors I found.

Tall overlay images and typographic headings continue the bold look of the design throughout the exhibition. Each typographic treatment references the style of the corresponding art movement in some way.

love, gilda

For this documentary about Gilda Radner, I designed some merchandise using funny quotes from Gilda. This project was the first in a series of efforts to create merchandise around film screenings at the Speed.

american library

For the exhibition Yinka Shonibare CBE: The American Library at the Speed, we focused on social justice messages in our merchandise to coincide with the exhibition’s focus on immigration.

The “I Stand With Immigrants” message in the Speed’s branding made a bold statement in the entryway of the museum.

A second design included the title of the exhibition, “American Library,” in five languages: Spanish, Arabic, Somali, Nepali, and English, which according to some sources are the five most commonly spoken languages in Louisville.
