The foundations of the brand stemmed from the client mentioning he was seeking something "Italian as fuck." With this attitude in mind, I immediately thought, "What if Saint Gennaro was in a boy band and he had groupies and merch?" Thus, the fan-girl-inspired brand voice and brash attitude were born.

This is Atlanta’s own down & dirty, unapologetically “Italian as F***!” take on the traditionally New York City festival of San Gennaro: a playfully clever approach that combines the revered imagery of Saint Gennaro (my boyfriend, for sure) with love-note-inspired illustrations in order to give the festival a facelift, bringing it into the modern-day vernacular. Playful nods to street graffiti and iconic food cart signs give this concept a uniquely modern and youthful perspective on an age-old tradition.
