I have been a graphic designer in 2D and 3D compositing for nearly twenty years. These are samples of branding, brand extensions, renderings, video boards, shooting boards, storyboards, style frames, and more!


Narvona Packaging Renders

This was my first package design rendering project. I designed a box to open in a way that it reveals the flower like a plant peeling back. As a speculation project for a cannabis branding agency, this exploration included me creating die lines, custom art layouts, and folding a box in Cinema4D using Xpresso and rendering the results with Arnold. Later, I did a little clean-up in Photoshop.

Created all in Photoshop, I made these on spec for RAab Stevenson (vocal coach to the stars). I played off the names of each star RAab coached and made an anagram of sorts using the letters that corresponded to his name and what he does and stands for as call-outs.

Architectural Sketches

When I was a youth, I used to take a black wax crayon and cover a page of white paper. I would then etch a design with a utensil to reveal the white paper beneath. I absolutely love architecture–especially classic American architecture. This is also getting an animated twist to it.

These are boards from a presentation I worked on for a client that chose a different direction. I thought this might be a cool way to introduce their products and features.

I only provided motion direction and interaction. I was asked to recreate a blooming collage for each NBA persona from a poster design that was created by JT. DeMartile. As a result, I art-directed these animation sets with a local 3D Studio called Straightface for use in our rich media campaign.

As part of a corporate rebrand for T-Mobile I was asked to enter the ring. I made some some fun concepts that expanded guerrilla marketing and social efforts. I felt this would be a good way to demonstrate that T-Mobiles signal and reach is extraordinary.
