Max Meal

Max Meal

My friend bought a small dog food company called Max Meal and needed to rebrand it. She asked if I could do a hand-drawn version of the original dog photo for the packaging that would go along with her company name: 2 Dog Empire. I sketched something up for her, colored it, and redesigned the packaging…

Columbia Event Promotions

Columbia Event Promotions

While freelancing at North I designed promotional materials for an event Columbia was having to promote their new PFG footwear. I translated the original art direction into multiple print and digital ads. Print Pieces: eComm banner: Email: Homepage banner: Social Ad:  

Cold Brew

Cold Brew

While freelancing at North I designed some animated banners for Peet’s Cold Brew, featuring a bottle causing around Northern and Southern California. These were sent out-of-house for the final animated web files, so here are JPGs of the different scenes: Northern California Version: Southern California Version: Northern California Version:     Southern California Version:     Northern…

Northwest AcroYoga Summer Camp Out

Northwest AcroYoga Summer Camp Out

I’ve designed all of the promotional materials for the Northwest AcroYoga Summer Camp Out since it first began 6 years ago. It’s been such a huge success that it’s expanding to two events in two different locations this year. I revamped the poster this year to represent both locations with Mount Hood and Mount Baker in the background….

The Space Between

The Space Between

I often do photography and design work for Tempos Contemporary Circus, a local acrobatic and physical theatre performance group. I designed a poster for their upcoming show using a photograph from their art director. Here’s the final image: I did a lot of retouching and recoloring of the original photograph, and to add texture I also…

Rose City Acro Ninjas

Rose City Acro Ninjas

  in 2012 there were 24 acro yogis from Portland who went down to San Francisco for the Divine Play Acro Yoga Festival. I designed team shirts for us and we all wore shiny gold pants. We made such a great impression that the next year they decided to start holding the festival here in…

IDL and UA

IDL and UA

I did some work for the Under Armour team at IDL Worldwide. One of the most exciting projects I got to work on was a bunch of POP displays for UA shoes in Fred Meyer stores. The first store to install the new displays was the Hollywood (Portland) store. Please excuse the low-quality phone pics…

When you get your Chinook Books this year, be sure to look out for the Gladys Bikes ad I whipped up for them. It stars my friend Julia and her bike. Photo credit: Christie Spillane.

Acro Yoga Video

Acro Yoga Video

I decided to try out some videography and video editing. My friends Hobs and Angela wanted a little promo video to demonstrate what they do. Here’s what I put together. (Music credit: Emancipator – Elephant Survival)

Tempos presents Morae

Tempos presents Morae

Some of my friends are putting on a performance next month featuring acrobatics, dance and contemporary circus. I made them a poster and a postcard to help advertise. We chose an image from their previous performance that exemplifies some of the performance elements that they will use in this next performance, even though it wasn’t…

2013 Rose City Acro Ninja Shirts

2013 Rose City Acro Ninja Shirts

I re-designed the Rose City Acro Ninja shirts for the Divine Play Acro Yoga Festival which was in town last weekend. We decided to go with new colors and graphics, but still be bright and stand out from the crowd. You might notice that the design is somewhat based on the acroninja shirt I made…

Acro Yoga Summer Camp-Out

Acro Yoga Summer Camp-Out

Some Acro Yoga friends are putting on a summer camp-out so I designed some postcards and posters for them.

All Together Now

I designed a poster and some handbills for an event last month called All Together Now, put on by Community Supported Everything.

Acro Ninja Screen Print

Acro Ninja Screen Print

I designed and screen printed this shirt as a going away present for a friend of mine, Rachel Plies. She’s one of the most talented acroyogis I know, and is a huge part of our Portland acroyoga community, the Rose City Acro Ninjas. She and her husband moved to Iceland a few weeks ago. I…

Rose City Acro Ninja Shirts

I designed shirts for my acroyoga friends to show unity at the Divine Play festival in San Francisco.

Nike Football League

Nike Football League

Every new job or project I work on requires me to wait until the final product gets released out into the world before I can show anyone what I’ve done. In this case I’ve had to wait more than 4 months before I could show off the NFL jersey images I worked on for Nike’s…

Webtrends 404

Webtrends 404

I designed a 404 error page for Webtrends’ new website. Webtrends new branding for the site is very reminiscent of Massimo Vignelli’s design for the NYC subway system. Since the 404 page is generally something you see when you’re lost on the site, I made it look like the map Vignelli designed in 1972.

Graphic Icons

Graphic Icons

Here are some graphic icons I did for Webtrends that never got used for anything. I still like how they turned out.

Retro Game-Geek Studio

Retro Game-Geek Studio

Today was decoration day at the studio. After our big studio remodel everything was clean and white and we needed a little more personality. Today we added a bit of flair: a giant Post-It Pac-Man with some ghosts on the wall, and Space Invaders above the windows.
