image maker awards

brand identity / events / video / print

about: this is an identity and original concept for an awards show called “image maker,” (stylized IMG MKR) which celebrates cultural icons whose images have captured and shaped the zeitgeist. more specifically, this project explores image making as a type of currency in american culture. the visual language is inspired by both film and religion—with the marked up contact sheets showing the power dynamics involved in image making, and the regalia affirming that we are in an era of celebrity worship.
