WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAYS
Lev Manager, Eye In The Sky Collective Founder
"Nakia's work is undoubtedly top-notch. She is great at listening to what clients need and communicating throughout the whole process from initial quote, to project delivery, to final payment. It was SO refreshing to work with a designer that provides numerous options at the first draft stage, meets her deadlines and maintains a premium level of work; ALL with a smile and great spirit of collaboration. I can't recommend her enough."

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAYS
Desert Stars Festival Founder
Los Angeles, California
"I highly recommend working with the Summer Moon. Nakia delivers stunning and highly imaginative work while equally being able to manage demanding deadlines. She fosters great care and sophistication in her approach and brought a whole new level of depth and clarity to our campaign. I will certainly be coming back."
DESERT STARS FESTIVAL
Desert Stars Festival was born out of a love for connecting musicians, artists and the community. Going back to 2007, the beginnings of our festival were and still are, humble, green, naive and yet full of energy and optimism. Their goal has always been to create a place where like minded artists and individuals can enjoy a serene environment and have an incredible experience that is not available in a venue located within big city walls.
Client // Desert Stars Festival
Where // Los Angeles California
Creative director, illustrator, Designer // Nakia Matthewson
Commission // To create a 60's Filmore inspired direction, design and branding for all the Desert Stars Festival pre-party events, including main festival promotion materials, 2015.
The Solution // I created an illustration that could be used across the events, that echoed the energy of their visual oil projections and 60's Fillmore ladies. To take it a step further, I altered the colours of each event so they would be individual and adjusted the layout design for all social media platforms and print.
