Annual Day of the Dead Celebration
Large Scale Banner Design
Smithsonian NMAI

Banner design for Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian’s annual Day of the Dead event held at the museum with a community ofrenda, live performances, lectures and family activities. Wanted to create a unique look that was culturally relevant and celebrated the beauty and whimsy of Día de los Muertos. Large scale banner was a fabric flag, pieced together and sewn with various cut out shapes and colors. Art and type designed as line art and worked to color match fabric samples and select the right combinations for final output. The banner was designed to last and be used annually for the Day of the Dead celebrations at the museum.
