stories of refuge

CREATIVE DIRECTION, BRAND DESIGN, WEB DESIGN, STRATEGY

SPRING 2017 | role: BRAND CONSULTANT + DESIGNER

Stories of Refuge is a beautiful project that works to tell the stories of the humans affected by the migration crisis across Europe and the Middle East. Our work together began with brand strategy, as I supported the team in helping them clarify their mission, messaging, and purpose. From there, we developed the visual identity and website, which would support their storytelling work across 13 countries. The team went on to develop several short films as well as a feature-length documentary which was screened at the 2018 Marfa Film Festival. Additionally, they were invited to participate in the 2017 and 2018 Oslo Freedom Forum gatherings, telling their stories among global leaders and change-makers.
