I personally enjoy the process of creating logos, maybe more than anything else related to design. The challenge of distilling as much meaning possible into a simple, unique, compelling mark and is very interesting. A good logo is often the first step in the right direction as it should embody the organization's goals, vision, and identity.
Playing music is one of my biggest passions and I'm involved with several projects. These are some of the event posters I've created.
Photomanipulation is an important aspect of my skill set. Photoshop is a powerful tool when it comes to creating compelling elements for marketing and advertising.
My time at Theory.co gave me the opportunity to work on a number of print ads for their mother company, Traveler Media, which publishes a number of magazines and manages ad placements in other publications such as HI Luxury and Hana Hou Magazine. I took most of these ads from concept to completion.
Back in 2013, I partnered with Kai Bovaird, who has had years of experience in the VFX industry to create an animated promotional video for ActivityRez, an online tourism booking engine. My role on the project was Art Director and my responsibilities included putting together a creative team, overseeing production and managing quality control. With Kai as Project Manager, the team and I created storyboards, concepts, and characters. In addition to providing the team with creative direction, I also participated in producing assets. The project won a 2013 Magellan Gold Award for Best Promotional Video in the Online Travel Services Marketing category.
