Branding Collateral: KVMR Portfolio

In 2015, I had a semester-long internship with KVMR. I designed the front-end of their mobile APP (see above portfolio), stickers, flyers, advertisements for print and web, a CD cover, and more. I still do freelance work for KVMR, and recently created a car magnet for them based on 1950s motel signs.
