Phillips Collection Centennial

I participated in the Phillips Collection's Centennial logo project, Our Logo Reimagined, where twelve local DC artists reinterpret the classic Phillips Collection Logo.

For me, reimagining this logo was all about typographic expression. I wanted to capture some of the different styles that have been contemporary to all of the Phillips’s 100 years, including today. I was intrigued by the challenge of finding multiple design solutions to the logo; I illustrated the passage of time and adaptability of the art world by keeping the 100 relatively static and the text very fluid, all while exploring different lettering styles from different eras or points of view.

I also gave an artist talk on my process creating the logos, where I was interviewed by DCAD Coordinator of Liberal Arts and former Corcoran College of Art + Design professor, Casey Smith, the recording of which is linked below.
