Ray | Vitamin D Infused Golden Ale

RAY is a vitamin-D infused concept beer idea.

This project was in collaboration with OSU Fermentation Sciences (OSU Barley Project), OSU College of Business and the Graphic Design program. The final presentation was presented in front of a panel of judges.

The project executed a brand identity for RAY, packaging, and SWAG items to go along with the product’s unveiling.

Prototype images of the physical can show a hand-painted pattern and matte label finish.

Weleda | Hypothetical Rebrand

Revitalizing the natural cosmetics brand, Weleda.

This project focused on rebranding a company by creating a new pictorial mark and wordmark. The latter half of the project developed product mockups and a stationery set using the brand system (typography, photography, and colors). The new mark is modern and professional using a serif typeface. Weleda’s rebrand focused on representing their long history, the use of natural ingredients, and creating products for all with a more modern and professional image. The pictorial mark represents life, unity, and nature. It also has a subtle W shape in the top part of the flower to add more negative space and create balance.
