I oversaw the design and art direction of this editorial series about the concept of “ambition” being a scam. The stories explored themes of late-stage capitalism, burnout, the “Great Resignation,” and office culture. 

I established the visual tone of the series, designed the logo and the collection page, and created artwork for several articles. I hired and art directed external illustrators for the lead articles. 

The banner illustration is by Joi Fulton. We created an Escher-like office interior that plays with the idea of “climbing the corporate ladder” but getting nowhere. A disgruntled employee vandalizes the “Ambition”wall mural, calling it a scam.
