Visual system design for The Internet's 2015 album "Ego Death". I chose to redesign Ego Death to highlight the band’s authentic and groovy R&B/soul style, and to highlight the band’s lead singer, Syd. Ego Death takes the listener on a journey through the ups and downs of Syd’s relationships with women and her struggles to achieve fame as an artist.
Genderful is a digital space created to normalize gender non-conforming (GNC) communities. Genderful is meant to increase trans & nonbinary visibility on the internet and educate people with little knowledge about the trans and GNC experience.
