Several years ago I painstakingly recreated a wrist watch in vector using Adobe Illustrator and created these editorial fake magazine layouts.
These are some modern graphic designs with a Christmas theme. I made them in 2013, but never got around to posting them.
A ray-gun I created in Adobe Illustrator using vector shapes and gradients. It is based on a photo of a toy from the 1950s/60s. I made this in 2012.
The lottery had our ad agency come up with ideas for a new way of presenting jackpot amounts. They wanted a quirky machine, so I created this steampunk machine. However, they ended up not going with a new look afterall. The machine would have shook, flickered and generated some steam while spinning up the numbers. The particular lottery game logo would go right above the jackpot number.
This was done in Photoshop/Illustrator
I did some branding design for a company called Ms. Pinky. The vinyl records are bright pink and use “time-code” to control computer software. Their old branding was on the right track with having a retro feel, but I felt needed some cleaner design. I created a logo and two options for the vinyl label design. My new branding is not currently being used, but may be used in the future.

This is a movie poster I made for a friend’s independant film about man waking up with a creature growing from his arm. It was titled “Personal Growth.” I don’t believe the film was ever finished.
Pen and ink drawing, scanned and cleaned up. The lettering and splatters were done with india ink and paintbrush.
This is the website I designed for a local non-profit music organization called Outpost. This was a mini-site for a fundraising event they held. The “GALA” logo itself was inspired by quirky mid-century jazz record covers.
A poster I made for the 1988 cult classic, Maniac Cop. It’s a mockup I did for a design project a few years ago in which I tried to emulate the look of designer Shepard Fairey. Fairey himself emulates the style of vintage design and adds a crisp and bold modern feel. I too, love the geometrically balanced appear of vintage design elements and it was a fun project to work on.
I was in charge of making a holiday video for our office (Christmas 2013). The video features all of the office workers’ dogs singing deck the halls. I personally did all of the audio, editing, post-production and most of the filming.
In addition I designed a small web page for the project which we distributed via email blast. I ended up having some fun editing and came up with two bonus videos, which were essentially credits and bloopers.
