On Nov 17, Airbnb hosted Airbnb Open, a festival bringing together a worldwide community of hosts and guests, in LA. For the event, Airbnb needed a dynamic scheduling platform for Airbnb employees to create, confirm and view custom work itineraries, so I was brought on to create the visual experience.

Art Direction Brief
This art direction draws inspiration from the venues and surroundings of Downtown Los Angeles. Embracing multiple typefaces and colours celebrate the many facets of Los Angeles and the people who live there — as well as the variety of the hosts, guests, locals and employees who will be attending the festival.
Inspiration comes from sunsets in LA and “the magic hour” — the time of flux when things begin to transform. Oversized text is layered over amorphous gradients, while headlines switch amongst different display typefaces. Whether employees are logging in or finalising their staffing schedule, they can feel the energy of Airbnb Open LA.
