Charlottesville Design Week


AIGA Charlottesville


The Charlottesville Design Week is Virginia's first design festival—we organized the events and designed all materials surrounding it, including posters, programs, signage, and website. The week was a massive success, with more than 200 attendees joining us from across the state.

Graphic design, web design, branding

The poster stands out well on a bulletin board. The bright yellow and empty space creates a tension that deviates from the designs you see in Charlottesville.

The website is responsive and fairly simple. We coded it in html/css rather than using a site-builder like WordPress or Squarespace.

Facebook & email graphics are fairly straightforward. If the venue is on the map, then the map zooms to that place and a small text box labels it.

The bright visual is designed to stand out in any room, even going so far as to drown out the environmental graphic design already in-place.

The program follows the brutalist inclination to be slightly difficult to look at. Rather than a booklet, the program folds like a map, then unfolds to be a poster. The events and information are printed on one side and the design week poster is on the other.
