Atomic Furnishings & Design
Brand Re-Design - Logo / Web / Print
I met Todd and Megan (owners of Atomic Furnishings & Design) in Asheville, NC. We instantly hit it off and became close friends through the entire brand re-design of their logo identity and web presence, which sells their stellar vintage furniture finds. The result was a cohesive brand re-launch that captured their true essence.
Musician - The Dead Tongues
Album Artwork - Photography
The Dead Tongues came to me for album art photography on their epic release titled "Montana". The beautiful region of Asheville, NC is a theme on this hauntingly beautiful album and so we wanted to shoot on location and capture the spirit of where this music was conceived and recorded.
Musician - Jonah Sissoyev
Music Video Production
Jonah is a singer songwriter from Portland, OR. He approached me to shoot a music video that captured the essence of his song "Carry". The result was a multi-angle black and white piece with a simple, but striking aesthetic.
Brand + Identity + Web Re-Design
The former Loudr music distribution needed a brand re-design from an acquisition by the company I was working with. They needed a familiar aesthetic, but a new logo, mark and web presence that spoke to their existing / future audience. The result was a clean and minimal concept that furthered the brand's reach.
From Marfa with Love
From Marfa with Love owner Jessica Marfa makes beautiful handmade leather goods and travel gear out of her studio in Portland, OR. She approached me to create a minimal logo incorporating a custom "M" into her branding and the result was a unique mark that could be applied to her wares.
Mariner & Mistress
Photography - Lookbook
Josh and Amy Beane have an amazing sense of taste and curate American-made products in their shop based out of Nashville, TN. They approached me because of our similar tastes in aesthetic style to help them launch their first campaign with a lifestyle photoshoot featuring their products in a candid setting.
NBA Star Ty Lawson
Brand Development / Management + Web Design + Video
Ty Lawson's management came to me with only a picture of a tattoo he had recently received as his new personal brand identity. I took it and ran with it, creating a full logo suite and web campaign while art directing the website install. I also filmed and edited episodes of Ty's web series "Life of Ty" to give fans a personal glimpse into Ty's life.
Brand Creation + App Design
High profile NYC and L.A. club owners approached me to create a brand and concept that put the power of their clubs in the palm of their attendee's hands. I conceived "Nitewire" and proceeded to cultivate a brand identity and seamless app design that was sleek and stylish as to appeal to the club demographic.
Video Production + Web / Mobile Design
Stealz is a quickly rising startup company out of Raleigh, NC. I created a complete web and mobile design experience that highlighted their app's power. I also directed, shot and edited a series of commercials and testimonials to enhance the true ease and reward power of their product.
Ryan Gustafson / Donkey LP
Print Design + Photography
Ryan Gustafson is an extremely talented musician that wanted a raw look and feel for his amazing Donkey album. The look and feel really came together with a photo shoot at a friend's farm with a relic donkey they had on the premesis. The album art was then designed around these images.
Branding + Identity + Video Production
iRODS asked me to update their logo identity after their two institutes merged. Both previous institutes had outdated logos. My job presented the unique challenge of giving them a modernized mark that represented their previous logos equally. Many hours were spent taglining and honing the updated presence of the final iRODS piece, which they were very happy with.
Branding + Graphic Design + Photography
I was brought on to RENCI as a temporary graphic designer and they liked me so much I stayed with them for nine years as a Creative Director. I have cultivated their brand and identity to create a polished and cohesive image that made our institute's work instantly recognizable in the global academic research community.
