cosmosis

branding / screen printing / exhibition

Cosmosis is a clothing brand I created for my senior exhibition at the University of Minnesota. The designs are screen printed by hand and inspired out of love for the 90s rave scene. I created the identity for Cosmosis, then printed shirt & tote designs, hang tags, info cards, and zines.

 

I additionally curated a physical pop-up shop experience that was a part of the graphic design senior class exhibition, on display in the Goldstein Museum of Design HGA Gallery in Rapson Hall.

background

I found a book on British rave flyers from the 1990s and was immediately captivated by the unapologetically bold and experimental spirit behind them. After researching more, my obsession with them grew, so much that I wrote my senior thesis on the history of rave culture and design.

 

Taking my knowledge and inspiration from my thesis topic, I created a clothing brand for my graphic design senior exhibition at the University of Minnesota.

the name 

Cosmosis is a portmanteau of cosmos,

the universe seen as a well ordered whole,” and osmosis, “the process of gradual or unconscious assimilation of ideas, knowledge, etc.”

The rave movement in the 90s was a utopian escape from mundane life, centered around music, acceptance, and connection. Cosmosis captures the fluid, collaborative, and positive energy of rave culture.
