Denver Zoo Branding

Denver Zoo needed a graphic system that could be easily translated to a variety of marketing materials that was playful enough to excite kids but was grown-up enough to demonstrate the zoo’s commitment to sustainability and education. Thus, I created this lively, fun design system to portray the energetic, always changing, always exciting, kid-and-adult-friendly nature of Denver Zoo. The design palette includes bright colors inspired by nature, beautiful photography, organic shapes, textures derived from animal patterns and simple, clean animal icons.
