Colors: Art + Music Festival


I believe that design could be found in many places. One way for me to record these incidents would be through photography using a 35mm film camera.

During the early part of 2016, I picked up a Canon AE-1 on eBay and it has helped me understand composition and negative space within a photo and on a page. By using this medium of photography I needed to have patience and confidence in myself because nothing is digital. This helped me understand the importance of the different fuctions of a camera instead of relying on having everything automatic.

After a few moths of under-exposed photos and stale compositions, I was able to get the hang of what my film camera could do. This is a collection of what I've collecte within the last year.


Art Direction
This is an annual event that creates a conversation about global pollution. It is made up of performances, community murals, and interactive installations sharing a single message. Together we are able to make a difference in our community.

Speaking directly to the name, a colorful palatte was made throughout the whole brand system. Bright and enticing colors are meant to spark insight to this music festival. A pattern that mimics our polluted waters is made to be a visual alternative to a global pollution.
