Role: Creative Direction, Design  |  Agency: Goodby Silverstein & Partners  |  Copy: Rebecca Faulkner
“Your ticket out.”

StubHub's second major rebrand within 2 years time paralleled the launch of our first global brand campaign.  Working with our agency associates Goodby Siverstein & Partners our internal brand studio and product design team moved from initial creative exploration to launch in about 6 months time. My roles for the project included creative direction, design, documentation, production, and roll out of the visual identity system. The previous rebrand helped StubHub transition from a transactional platform primarily focused on sports to a destination for event discovery of all types. The 2016 rebrand was focused on further evolving the brand to give it multi-faceted global appeal focused on the emotion, passion, and human connection of the live event experience itself.

StubHub Rebrand 2015

Role: Creative Direction, Design  |  Agency: Duncan Channon  |  Copy: Rebecca Faulkner
“Sharp, organized, clean and clear meets fun, lively and dynamic.”

From competitive analysis and ideation through documentation and roll out, I worked closely with our agency partners at Duncan Channon on StubHub's first major rebrand in 10 years. This rebrand focused on evolving the perception of StubHub as a sports focused secondary ticketing marketplace to an event discovery destination to "help fans find fun" via our personalized, mobile-friendly and fan-focused product. 

This project included a logo re-design, brand voice guidelines, new color pallet and usage guidelines, typographic guidelines, imagery/photography guidelines, iconography/illustration/info-graphic guidelines, product and program identity development, co-branding guidelines, and more.
