Undertone is a music festival in New York City held to discover and support underground artists.  As a consequence of our society becoming cashless, it is becoming more challenging for street performers to earn a living.

Given the entry point in the music industry is even more difficult for minorities, our performers will be BIPOC or female street musicians.

Festival Identity 


Focuses on the experience before the festival: introducing the line-up, objective of the festival, and allowing visitors to purchase tickets easily.

Mobile App

How might we differentiate web and mobile app experience? How will the experience on mobile app be different on the day of the festival?


At Undertone, musicians will be rotating sites after their performance, while groups of people are assigned to a campfire location along Park Avenue. Having the interactive map with location and time for festival attendees was the main objective in the mobile app.

The attendees can preview the map so that they can schedule accordingly — grab food in between the performances, avoid missing out on their favorite artist’s performance and donate to them directly.


Social Media  

Interactive Wayfinding




As a group, with my colleague Sofia Moon, Creating the brand identity from hands-on experiments, and translating these elements into a design system was very enjoyable.

When creating the web and app, thinking about how and when festival attendees might use web vs. mobile version, and how we can create a different experience on both mediums while utilizing a cohesive design system.
