Why Otis?
Right time at the right place. I have wanted to attend art school since I was young but was always told it wasn’t an option. When I moved out to L.A. and had some real life/work experience, I knew that art school (Otis) was the best option for my career path and for me as an artist.
 

Design Week; LAVA Design

The main goal of the "Hacking the LA City Brand" was to arm students with the tools to create design with intention. With critical thinking, they created design solutions that respond to the complexity and richness of their social context. Their journey went from research, analysis and conceptual thinking to design development. Students developed three concepts into visual identities: LA-ish, Los Angeles Originals and Lost Angels.


Can a city brand truly reflect the authenticity of a complex entity as a city?
