NEO—WORKSHOP FOR VISUAL THINKING, NYC


I co-founded NEO—a merit-based creative workshop series that unites creative experts of a particular locale with student artists. The NYC iteration was held at the Cooper Union in 2014 (other test sites include Stockholm, Milan, and Los Angeles). Collaboratively, we branded and built the identity with a team of artists and developers.

We created and won a Kickstarter campaign. We curated a selection of graphic works in conjunction with the Herb Lubalin Center for Typography. We held a workshop, a lecture series and an exhibition. We created a digital and printed publication. We got 5 NYC based artists to lead a group of 34 international students to come together in the dead of winter to make a new body of work. We had a party, made new friends, and were invited to exhibit in the MAD Museum.
