YoungSet Collective

Branding, Illustration, Exhibit Design | 2017


Seven students across different majors at RISD started the YoungSet Collective as a challenge to revitalize the process of making. Over five weeks, we met to create work together and to learn more about each other.

The cumulation of our efforts were displayed in a one day pop-up show. Work was designed, branded, packaged, and then curated as part of the exhibition. Visitors were encouraged to directly take work off of the walls to purchase, then to create their own drawings to fill the newly empty spots. This way, the show became interactive and replicated the collaborative space we had enjoyed while working together.





YoungSet designed their own version of the logotype. Letters from each design were taken and compiled to create an ever-evolving final logo that represents the reason YoungSet was conceived: to celebrate the group experience while maintaining the integrity of the individual artist. I was responsible for formulating our mission statement.

Pop-Up Show






Visitors were encouraged to directly take work off of the walls to purchase, then to create their own drawings to fill the newly empty spots. This way, the gallery would essentially never empty and would become a space for collaboration. It was important for us to replicate the collaborative space we had enjoyed while working together as YoungSet.
