Merl Studio


Independent Studio Practice

Merl Studio is an independent studio practice started between five friends at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2017. We work collaboratively on websites, brand identities, editorial design, mobile applications, and even some art making.

Shown below is a selection of some of the work I have been involved in with Merl. Clicking on the images will take you to the respective case studies for each project.

Sigma Surgical Identity

Sigma Surgical was interested in a rebrand to distinguish themselves as a new type of tech-driven healthcare startup. They aim to improve surgical procedures through a network OR Surgery application.

Justice Is Global Case Statement

Justice is Global came to us to help them create their case statement: a printed piece to give context to their mission and articulate their goals. They look to respond to rising international inequality as a result of neoliberal globalization.

Finnest Debit Card

Finnest approached Merl to design a debit card intended for children as young as 8 to teenagers up to 17 years old. The debit card is a central piece to Finnest's financial education program, and they wanted something that would stand out from the pack.

RAID Identity

RAID (RISD Asian Intersections + Diaspora) is a student collective aiming to unite and mobilize Asian-identifying RISD students around issues of equity, representation, and politics in art and on campus.
