Project Description

Design and branding for the third annual Platform Summit at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. Platform is a non-profit organization and conference that focuses on increasing the participation of underrepresented groups in technology and entrepreneurship. 

The event required the design of affordable yet impactful environmental pieces, wayfinding and stage design as well as a full suite of identity collateral and printed materials. Due to limitations on modifying the interior of the event location, a series of freestanding columns were used as temporary guideposts while a field of branded flags was installed at the event entrance. Mirrored surfaces and moiré-like patterning were used across the wayfinding pieces and conference materials and also informed the stage design, where a large scale 4K LED screen was used to display motion graphics behind speakers and panelists.
