To go with the HOPES theme of Response we took inspiration from interactive digital art, data driven architecture, and nature's adaptivity.
Our logo was designed to resemble outputs of algorithmic design software. The first iteration was made with Grasshopper while the last two were done in Illustrator. Later in the design process we chose to simplify our logo due to print complications.
Some of our initial implementation of the logo and typeface selection. The color deemed too be dark and did not properly convey the message of the conference.
Lighter and more energizing colors where tried until we found something that seemed to fit our message.
General advertising poster (11" x 17"), competition overview poster (11" x 17"), informational poster (11" x 17")
Schedule post card (4.25" x 6"), Snapchat filter, directors name tag (2.75" x 3.75"), sticker (3" x 3"), stamp card (3.5" x 2")
What is HOPES?
"The HOPES Conference is an annual event, held every spring by the Ecological Design Center, a student group at the University of Oregon. Inaugurated in 1994, the conference is an opportunity for students, faculty, community members, and visiting scholars to discuss the relationship between ecology and various design disciplines, and how this connection can produce sustainable solutions to contemporary problems.
The conference consists of a combination of panels, keynote speakers, workshops, exhibitions, and excursions. Past topics addressed during the conference include: environmental literacy, food sustainability issues, religion and the environment, product innovation, and biomimicry. Over the past decade the conference has brought such luminaries as Shigeru Ban, Sim Van der Ryn, Lola Sheppard, Sean Ahlquist, Neri Oxman, Carlo Ratti, Steve Badanes, Francois Roche, David Orr, John Schaeffer, Stephen K
Disrupting Colors Workshop
The "Disrupting Color" workshop was coordinated to bring students, faculty, and community members of various backgrounds together to learn about the environmental impacts of color.
