Mural Arts Philadelphia

For my Drexel Co-op, I spent six months as the graphic design intern for Mural Arts Philadelphia. While I was there, I created social media graphics, maps, postcards, flyers, posters and other graphics to engage viewers, invite them to events, guide them to murals and educate them about all that Mural Arts does for the city of Philadelphia. Some of my favorite work from Mural Arts is presented below. My experience with Mural Arts was featured in Drexel Now's online January newsletter.

Maps

  • West Philadelphia DNC Map
  • Ben Franklin Parkway DNC Map
  • Old City DNC Map
  • Rittenhouse Square DNC Map
  • Center City East DNC Map
  • South Philadelphia DNC Map

One of my first assignments at Mural Arts was to create maps to help visitors find murals in the Gayborhood and Spring Arts areas of Philadelphia. This idea was applied to Mural Arts and ArtJawn's Donkeys Around Town project, which brought 57 fiberglass donkeys, one for each state and territory, to various spots in Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention. The Donkey maps were available online and handed out at Mural Arts events during the DNC.

For my last assignment while I was working in-house at Mural Arts was to create the graphics of a personality quiz to guide vistors to the mural that best represents them. This project gave me the most freedom to play with typography, photography, illustration and pattern-making. While the quiz is no longer up, it was featured in an article by the Philly Voice and had been played over 1,500 times.
