Cards Against Humanity Period Pack
During 2017, the Cards Against Humanity Writer’s Room shifted from eight white men to a diverse range of Chicago comedians led by two women. With the company gaining even more of a female voice, we wanted to create a product that was geared specifically towards us. We packaged the cards inside of a maxi-pad, forcing the customer to fully interact with what’s considered to be a taboo product. The sickly pink pad wrapper is a nod to the first pads girls receive in their introductory health classes. We worked with Grilli Type to design a very elegant and blunt logotype to go on the wrapper.

Blackbox Press Kit

Blackbox is an independent shipping company from the creators of Cards Against Humanity. We needed to publicize this new company, earn press, and gain new clients, so we created a physical Press Kit. 

As Blackbox’s Brand Designer, I pushed to break the structured grid we designed for our identity in order to create a more approachable design. The press kit opens the type-focused brand to illustrations, infographics, and unconventional formatting. It’s easy to understand and gets potential clients excited. Strong production and takeaways convince them to hold on and revisit it.

Cards Against Humanity

Cards Against Humanity is a party game for horrible people. Each round, one player asks a question from a black card, and everyone else answers with their funniest white card. 

As the Lead Designer at Cards Against Humanity, I was responsible for leading the design team with the creative direction, design, and production for all of the company’s products and marketing. We collaborated closely with the company’s founders to conceive and execute the creative vision for all projects. Here’s a list of every project I worked on.

In 2018 we won a Shorty Award and a Clio Award for the Cards Against Humanity Saves America website.
