And Also | Branding a Space for Conversion Therapy Survivors

The branding for 'And Also', a community supporting queer youth who have survived conversion therapy, challenges harmful, non-affirming environments. Through playful typography and vibrant colours, it aims to shift survivor experiences towards a more inclusive community that celebrates diverse sexualities, identities and gender expressions. A brand book and an outreach package featuring a zine and pamphlet were also designed.

Inspired by the concept of "Open when..." letters, it provides reliable information in a segmented and customizable format, making it more personalized. The kit includes 16 envelopes, informative brochures and a reflection journal. The kit equips teens to learn and navigate through their teen years, with prompts for guidance.
