New piece for Plansponsor. I’ve wanted to work with SooJin for YEARS. I remember about 5 years ago when I just graduated, cold calling her and fucking up the conversation pretty bad - I had stayed mad at my self over that conversation for a long time. Getting a chance to contribute to Plansponsor was understandably terrifying. REALLY didnt want to fuck it up. SooJin gave me the brief “Coming together to share and inspire”. That was new for me too. Often I’ll pull my visuals from the text I’m working on - so not having that option wasnt as simple as it sounds. In the end, I wanted to show a simple gathering that produced something unexpected and positive. I was thinking about the colorful pennants that people string up and celebrate with. Figured if they could be created by a gathering of different birds, that would be a fun solution. I’ve attached a few of the other ideas I pitched, but there were more. Also attached an alternative version that i sent where only the pennant part of the birds was colorful, and the rest was a bit more subdued. Thanks very much SooJin.
