POPPERS EMBASSY



This theoretical museum celebrating John Waters interprets the story of the cult-favorite movie director.

Poppers muscle relaxers were a staple of underground gay clubs and bath houses in the 1970s. Today they are still used by gay men everywhere, primarily for sex. I used them to represent John Waters and his art because they are disturbing, erotic and addictive. My concept museum has two exhibitions: one of cult films and another for his book and visual art, indecent exposure, recently acquired by the Baltimore Museum of Art.

ECSTACY THEATRE CULT FILM FESTIVAL



Devine in Ecstasy is one piece of the most visual arts from John Waters. Inspired by his underground cult flms, Ecstasy Theatre connects the character of Poppers Embassy, the cult films and the periphery elements people love about the relevant art. Included the visual language from retro television/screen effects, the modern identity of this cult film festival has been composed.

BAM  NEXT WAVE 2020




The goal of this project is to design a promotional component for The Next Wave Festival using a bold and practical typographic system. I combined the “X” in the word “next” with my custom typeface and used it as a signature element in a set of booklets. Since “X” means undefined in algebra, it is a perfect representation for TNW Festival 2020– mysterious yet with a lot of surprises.
