The Start With Love poster challenge was a community activation and four-week scheduled program supported by livestreams, video content, and commissioned artwork from twelve of the most popular traditional and digital artists on Launched during the onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic, it provided inspirational content for the DeviantArt community during an uncertain time. I led and executed the visual design, spot illustration, and motion graphics for all aspects of the campaign.

Title Design

As art director for yuumei’s commissioned key art, I developed guidelines and spec sheets ensuring it was production-ready for landing pages, videos, and related marketing material. Alongside her work, I created the title design, complementing the activation theme.
