 01. Hologram Electronics, LLC

“Microcosm” is an excitingly innovative audio effects unit from Hologram Electronics. As an in-house designer, I was responsible for developing Microcosm’s brand identity and all related graphics for web and print communication, as well as graphics for the product & packaging design.

We wanted Microcosm to feel inviting, referencing warm vintage hardware synths and print media (think Roland’s TR-808 and Korg’s Arp Odyssey), while simultaneously feeling at home in a modern studio. Sparse backdrops with spots of highly saturated color, soft edges, linear graphics - all pulling from what inspired the sounds for Microcosm.
