Against Me! Boxed Set
Print, Editorial, Packaging

Against Me! is an American punk rock band formed in 1997 and one of the most successful punk bands of its time. In 2012 Against Me!'s lead singer publicly came out as transgender and began transitioning. This boxed set explores her transition as she deconstructs her identity as a cultural symbol of masculine aggression and assembles her new identity as Laura Jane Grace.

The set includes three albums, a catalogue, and packaging. The system visually explores the theme of coming out through the stifling packaging that must be ripped open and the color that begins to reveal itself throughout the set. Collage is used in the catalog to visually depict Laura's thoughts and feelings throughout the band's career, along with her changing identity and expression.
