FREELANCE BUSINESS WEEK DENVER TALK
With more venues, festivals and population growth, cross pollination between the designers, musicians, and the creative community is becoming more prominent AND helping people engage with each part on a deeper level.
We created a space just for that -- an intimate concert broken up by fireside chats about topics such as merchandise strategy, poster design, and the concert experience itself.
DENVER STARTUP WEEK
EVENT + HAPPY HOUR
This panel put together by Sofar Sounds Denver explored the intersection of big data with the music industry in a race to the future of musical entertainment.

FUTURE OF LISTENING: DATA & MUSIC PANEL
After 24 hours of conceptualizing, each designer was given 45 minutes to concept, design, and present their interpretation - LIVE! - on the theme of 'Inclusive' in Denver. A panel of judges critiqued each project and selected a winner based on a list of criteria. Becky walked away with this win with her project of a Colorado based cereal, complete with games, custom marshmallows, and verbiage to match the geographic setting.
We took a deep dive into how every moving piece of your brand (and the tangible things that come with it) can showcase this and how something like a font change can completely change a brand’s message.
LIFE BEYOND THE LOGO
The panel discussed how their branding thrives outside of just their logo and how knowing their audience, and their marketing efforts have made all the difference.
