LadyLounge is an SF-based volunteer collective of 100+ women and female-identifying persons who meet once a month for a variety of enriching potluck experiences led by members. Topics range from art and craft, to health and wellness, to business and growth—but the common thread is a supportive, inclusive community of women helping and teaching other women. The organizer reached out to me to design the identity and a system of graphics for the events.

But what is the voice of a modern feminist support group? I started out exploring more traditionally feminine aesthetics, but quickly tired of what I realized was expected clichés: scripty fonts, pastels, gentle florals. From there I turned to a colorful, unapologetically bold approach. The wordmark is a combination of strength and directness in the all caps, sometimes-slab serif structure, but a few rounded edges soften the intensity.

For the system, overhead photography works beautifully to compliment the topics and drives a variety of unexpected and nuanced color combinations and textures.
