Identity & Illustrations for Wharton Women in Business

Creative Direction & Design
Melissa Marshall

In 2018 a new identity was designed for the Wharton Women in Business group. The new WW mark was designed to represent two women with arms up in the air linking hands in support of one another.

This idea is also reflected in a custom illustration featuring a cohort of diverse business-women linking hands.


Studio Skiffle, shorthandedly referenced here as §, is the playful and improvisational award-winning design and art practice of M. Marshall. Marshall has passion for color, smells, culture, the real, the surreal, the known and the unknown. The work of § reflects the curious and processual methods embraced while exploring and improvising with both digital and analogue technologies.   
What’s a Skiffle?

The name of § was influenced by the music genre, Skiffle. Familiar to few, Skiffle music is often played using improvised spirit and music instruments alike. When happening upon the word and musical world of Skiffle, Marshall felt a great kinship between the essence of Skiffle and her own design processes which often involve improvising, playing and exploring different mediums and techniques.
