Working alongside professor Irena Roman, we provided art direction and weekly feedback for the artists to interpret the station’s signature sound from their creative points of view. It was an […]
WBUR’s spring ad campaign launched on April 29th inspired by my lettering and headphone / earbud illustration art for the Membership team’s spring fundraising campaign. The summer marketing campaign was multi-channel, appearing everywhere from highway billboards to news websites — via digital programmatic placements and core outlets like The Boston Globe.
