In 2013, inspired by pizza, I founded a social club for pizza enthusiasts called the MPLS Pizza Club. The club grew from small group and solo pizza sessions, to pizza trips, a sleepaway camp for pizza-loving adults, giant potlucks, and even it’s own week. My role over the years has been to direct the club, plan and execute our events, and design and maintain our websites and graphics, and creating and running our social media accounts. We’ve been featured in news outlets such as Vice, Food & Wine, Paste, and The Huffington Post for our Pizza Camp and MPLS Pizza Week events.
Below is a selection of designs from MPLS Pizza Club:
MPLS Pizza Club & Pizza Camp:
Role: Design Director, Designer
Story: MPLS Pizza Club, MPLS Pizza Week, and Pizza Camp are all events I’ve founded to bridge community with art and food. The designs for these pizza projects came out of a collaboration with the designer BERGY who I frequently collaborate with.
I worked with BERGY to create a logo suite based on three concepts:
• Pizza Camp: A vintage camp seal with a pizza spin that could be easily updated for each year
• MPLS Pizza Week: A classic pizza box design
• MPLS Pizza Club: A parody of the cherry and spoon = the spork and pizza
These concepts were the basis for all of my designs and marketing for these three projects. Below is a sample of the imagery. We printed the t-shirts and flyers ourselves using screenprinting and a risograph machine. The spork and pizza we had made into enamel pins, glassware, and koozies.
