Jacob Waites

I design, prototype, and build brands and interactions full of expressive type, fun motion, bold colors, and minimal line-work. Sometimes I write and speak about design. My craft is the way I speak to the world, I work to help others find their voice and make them successful.

BCPD Safe Space Initiative

Led by Baltimore County Police Department's first LGBTQIA+ Liason, The Safe Space program creates shelter with local organizations for LGBTQIA+ victims of crime.

Building upon sister branding from the baltimore police department, I worked with Liason Jimmy Waites to craft a welcoming and inclusive visual design for the program's brand. The Safe Space initiative's decal is designed to be visual and large to let anyone who is suffering from criminal activity know where they can find shelter. You can watch more about the program in local news coverage here.
