Juilliard School of Music

branding. print. interface. 


Graphic notation is the representation of music through visual symbols, capturing not only the auditory but also the emotional characteristics that music embodies.

The Juilliard School of Music is enriched with history, teaching some of the world's best musicians. To represent all the various attributes of Juilliard, a redesigned logo was necessary. The essence of the rebrand was inspired by visualizing the diverse sounds of Juilliard and its students, leading to the discovery of graphic notation and the different ways it's expressed as a visual and auditory component.  



Identity Redesign

Poster Series

Two poster series were created to display the beauty of graphic notation and the role it plays as a visual medium in an auditory culture. One poster seires visualizes three different genres of music and expresses the energy and sound through colored paper. The second series is a distilled infographic perspective of diffrernet musical ensambles.
