Pandemic Punk

An Analysis of the Punk Design Aesthetic in the Pandemic

I graduated with my Master of Fine Arts in Integrated Design in Spring of 2021. My thesis project, Pandemic Punk, was completed as an MFA thesis for University of Baltimore's MFA in Integrated Design. 

Pandemic Punk explores the intersection of punk design and DIY (Do It Yourself) culture analogue and digital design methods, through the lens of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Pandemic Punk is a zine series that exists both physically and digitally. Both as a physical zine and as a website, pandemicpunk.com. This is the first iteration of the zine series, a personal reflection of the COVID-19 pandemic from March 13, 2020 to March 20,2021; the zine begins from the first day the author began working remotely to their second Pfizer vaccination shot. Pandemic Punk was proposed as a three-part series.
