Biodiversity Festival
On this job I was asked to design a variety of graphic pieces for the events taking place in this festival. The event was organized by  the National Park Service and the National Geographic Society.  A big part of this festival was BioBlitz, a fast-paced expedition to discover and document the species that thrive in national parks, an initiative that is already over 10 years old. This free public event, nationally sponsored by American Express, brought together more than 200 leading scientists and naturalists, more than 2,600 students and friends, families; and future scientists, to explore and celebrate biodiversity.

Bugs, Bats and Brews
“Bugs, Bats and Brews” was an event on the National Mall where attendees, ages 21 and older,  enjoyed the drinks at a beer garden, while host Chris Duffy explored the funny side of animal behavior with National Geographic photographer and explorer Anand Varma; science photographer, Danielle Lee; animal behavior scientist , and conservation biologist and bat expert Rob Mies. Together they talked about trending science myths and bats. This events was for adults to experience the National Parks with a night of laughter, science, and live music.

The most fun I had on this project came at the time of animating the illustrations I created for the brand. I also had the opportunity to attend the event itself. I have great memories of this job. Photos By Maya Moore, cortesy of brightestyoungthings.com
