Direction
Carolina's identities are as important to her as her photography is. With this in mind, we decided to pile on the personal touches. We developed a pattern composed of icons inspired by photography, indigenous cultures, and some of Carolina’s favorite things. The main typeface, Century Gothic, was created in the same year Carolina was born. We added another personal element by making her favorite color, yellow, the main color of the palette. Carolina captures many different emotions and groups through her photography and her scope of work is so different and unique from that of other photographers. The final branding truly sets her apart in Chicago’s saturated photo industry.

Two different versions of the business cards. Although the square card isn’t a standard size, we decided that the shape will stick out and make an impression.

Resume design, front and back.

Website splash page graphic. The illustrations were intended to be clickable and link to the site’s navigation. Upon hover, they’ll activate and turn yellow. Photo icons link to Carolina’s most recent work, the Oaxacan textile icons link to her blog, and the Mayan number 9 link to her about me page.
