Young Dance

Branding, Illustration

Client: Young Dance, a 25 year old dance company and school that engages youth of all abilities, backgrounds, and body types in dance making and life long learning.

Challenge: Young Dance’s brand was old and outdated. Their previous logo did not evoke their staple values of inclusivity, movement, and youthfuless. They needed a cohesive brand that represented who they are, was progressive and bold, and did not look like other more traditional dance schools.

My work: Keeping their values in mind at all times, I created a logo and brand for Young Dance that was playful and professional. In addition to their new brand, I created illustrations that complemented the logo that showed bodies of varying abilities and types moving and dancing.


Annie was exceptional to work with, and was dedicated to getting to know the sentiment and nuances of our organization, as part of her work process. She’s been an inspiration! We’ve grown as an organization in the ability to tell our story through her work.
