Conspiracy Factory

started as a collection of satirical conspiracy theories created by my studiomates in our free time, scribbled on scraps of paper and hung in our shared studio space. I used them as inspiration to create fictional conspiracy theories that teeter on the line between being almost real and completely ridiculous. After generating the theories, I created symbols to accompany them and applied them to a variety of formats. The project was featured in the Amateur Hour gallery, and by ShowLTUCoAD. Postcards were printed with the Don’t Trust Soup symbol by Teikaut in Detroit as part of their May 2020 print service.
