Who Inc Postcard
Promotional postcard for Who Inc. This design needed to look modern, professional, and clean. I chose to use photography with type to make the visual experience more objective, relateable, and eye-catching for potential customers.
This joystick was built to be a visual stunner yet still capable enough for tournament-level play. A laser engraved owl motif of my own design reflects the user's personal tastes. I built it with a deep and durable lacquer finish and top-quality Japanese joystick components to endure a lifetime of brutal and enthusiastic battles.
Logo, Commercial Loss & Litigation Strategies
For this design, my client requested a look which conveyed professionalism, authority, security and strength, and which would reflect his personality and the kind of work he did. Years of success in the insurance sector working with builders had earned him the moniker of "The Hammer," and since this melded well with the themes of law and construction, a motif with a judge's gavel, sledge hammer, and shield was decided upon. Digital design with Inkscape.
Integrated Manufacturing Solutions
For this project, I was tasked with re-styling an existing website. Masculine and assertive colors, simple icons, and a bold typeface convey a sense of excitement and confidence for this industrial supplier. Designed using Photoshop, Illustrator, and Inkscape, and built on Wordpress with custom HTML/CSS elements.
In this invite, I was tasked with creating a design which would convey a sense of nostalgia and a classic and elegant feeling. Swirling script and art-nouveau decorations help create this feeling, while a simpler text treatment keeps things readable and formal. Digital design in Inkscape.
St. Thomas Aquinas
This engraving is of a man who inspired me and made me into the person I am today... well, sorta. Yeah, St. Thomas Aquinas is cool, but the model for this image was my own dad! Digital artwork was done with MyPaint and a Wacom tablet, then laser engraved.
This piece is exemplary of the majority of the work I did for Pepsi in Idaho Falls. Hyper-visibility, hero product placement, tight adherence to corporate branding guidelines, and above all, extreme design speed. Most signs were ordered, designed, and delivered within a timeframe measured in mere hours instead of days. Digital design in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
This was a special project. One of the drivers at the warehouse had a sick child, and we wanted to give him a special Christmas present. His son was extremely proud of his dad and always excited to see the iconic Pepsi trucks, but we couldn't locate one with our brand in a toy size. So I took a generic one and re-branded it to match his dad's truck. He was extremely happy with it. Digital design with Photoshop and Illustrator.
KJ’s Giveaway Banner
Continuing the theme of hyper-visibility from large distances, this banner was designed to meet corporate branding guidelines while advertising a promotional giveaway of an ATV. I wanted to convey a sense of excitement in an eye-catching and dynamic design that would encourage customer participation in the promotion. Vinyl, designed with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
An eatery in SE Idaho needed a new set of store-front graphics which prominently featured photos of their food. Since I was working for the local Pepsi distributor it also needed a very strong Pepsi promotional tie-in. All graphics and lettering were designed for hyper-visibility from long distances, to attract customer attention even from speeding vehicles. Vinyl 70/30 Contravision, designed with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
