Original illustration + delivery truck mural for Berkeley Student Cooperative, April 2017
The Road House is a brand new, 18 person hostel in the center of Prague's 1 (Old Town---tourist central.) The owners, Rod and Craig wanted to create a new space catered to more mature guests (they have another, very successful-albeit party centered-hostel nearby.) Over the course of a couple hours, we hashed out what sort of art would fit the space's aesthetic and intentions, ultimately deciding on a minimal style that could share and showcase our favorite local haunts and collective knowledge the city's 10 districts.
Each of the three mural panels feature different neighborhoods, from Holešovice's gritty industrial clubs and cafes to the wine and food covered streets of Vinohrady. We wanted to motivate hostel guests to get out of Prague 1 and explore beyond Old Town.
This project also coincided with the end of my two month stay in Prague, and the murals depict the spaces and events that shaped my existence and experience living in Letna. Thank you to all the cafes (especially Vnitroblok and Original Coffee) that hosted my marathon drawing sessions and generally made killer coffee.
Safe Space is a website and mobile application created by a team of UC Berkeley undergrads that allows students to connect and share their similar mental health struggles through anonymous, peer-led chat. The application came out of a need for increased on-campus psychological resources as well as out of a desire to reduce stigma surrounding the topic of mental health.
I aimed to create a logo and branding pieces that were immediately recognizable as UC Berkeley, inviting to potential students, and most importantly, simple and fun, in an effort to mirror the application's aims at normalizing the conversation about mental health.
