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.
