Symbols Recordings is my ongoing passion project with Kastle. The record label releases forward thinking electronic music, while exploring dimensions of aesthetics in addendum to music- visual, philosophical, scientific… I’ll be posting all of the album artwork here, so check back for more!
We Ain’t Got Time To Bleed is a WordPress production with Freakalina Films to help promote Jesse Ventura’s new book, “63 Documents the Government Doesn’t Want You To Read.” The client requested a bold, unconventional look that screamed “REVOLUTION,” while maintaining the slogan “I love my country, not my government.” This was my first solo WordPress design to development launch and I’m pleased to say I didn’t lose TOO much hair over it.
Superheroes is a documentary by Michael Barnett that tracks the lives of several idiosyncratic urban vigilante heroes. After watching a few clips, shedding a few tears and hearing Michael’s incredible passion for this project I had to have a hand in it somehow.
I’ve been working with Level 99 since 2006. I started as a photographer and designer and general brand handler on top of my day job… and then I realized I actually need sleep (crazy, right?). So I scaled back and offered up a good friend of mine, Alex Rapada, as their new photographer, whom does a much better job than I ever could. Anyway, John Williams, the marketing director, worked with me on this to create a very minimal slate aesthetic for the winter campaign.
The Cimarron Group contracted me out to work on Beastly among a few other projects. CBS Films wanted an immersive user experience, so the concept I created for them incorporated elements that the user could interact with, along with a main menu because let’s face it- not everyone has the patience or time to figure out where everything is.
Tropic Thunder is a website I helped design while working at Jetset Studios. The site was created to be a giant panoramic with hyperbolic visuals and fury, mimicking the “Apocalypse Now” comedy that it is. Luckily, there was only one moment of, “I think I just flattened all the layers, hit save and closed out Photoshop.” And now I can also proudly say, “yes, we won an award for ‘Booty Sweat’.”
This was a fun site to work on. I was working with Jetset Studios as an Art Director and Designer and this was one of the Apatow productions on which we created. I particularly enjoyed being able to design outside of the more traditional look most entertainment websites (characters/navigation/rinse/repeat). It was also a lot of fun to brainstorm with the Flash developer on how to animate and sound design the characters.
