So this is a gallery of some of the work I’ve done. It highlights my roles in a variety of capacities, including design, production, account management, etc. etc. etc. (Scroll to the right to see.)
Athletic Propulsion Labs®Project: Print advertisement.Role: design, production.Agency: The UXB®.
Description: In support of a new product launch, I was tasked with designing a 2-page spread print advertisement for a popular basketball footwear publication. Rather than going with a standard portrait orientation, I chose to utilize a landscaped layout that would make the ad more noticeable to the reader by forcing them to stop and turn the magazine. Because this particular product features luxurious materials, I wanted the focus to be on beautiful photography that really highlighted that aspect. Ultimately, this was not the final design, but it is still my personal favorite of the concepts presented.

Description: Preliminary (and my favorite) t-shirt concepts for the company's apparel line.

Pope-Clements WeddingProject: wedding collateral package.Role: design.Freelance.
Description: I was approached by Lauren to develop a full wedding collateral package that had an elegant, yet clean and contemporary look.

Athletic Propulsion Labs®Project: PR.Role: media relations, press kit development.Agency: The UXB®.
Description: Athletic Propulsion Labs® is a basketball footwear company founded in 2009 that jumped to notoriety in October 2010 when their Concept 1 shoe made national headlines as the shoe banned by the NBA. During its first year, APL was featured in publications such as SLAM Magazine, Sole Collector, SI.com, ESPN.com, and CNBC.com. Post NBA ban, the brand was seen in the biggest news outlets in the country, including Yahoo!'s frontpage, USA Today, FoxSports, CurrentTV, Wired, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Mens Health, and was even the #2 and #3 most-searched terms on Google the day the news broke. As an employee of its agency of record, The UXB, I was responsible for press relations leading up to and post-NBA ban.
Kate GaffneyProject: professional website and blog for actress, Kate Gaffney.Role: design.Freelance.
Description: LA actress Kate Gaffney needed a website so she approached me to help her out. Her needs were two-fold: 1) she needed a place to showcase her professional experience such as headshots, reels, and resume and, 2) she also wanted to have a place to share her day-to-day thoughts and musings. She wanted a look that was professional, clean and decluttered, yet fun and reflective of her personality. The homepage serves as her blog, yet doesn't look too, well, blogg-y and maintains the look-and-feel of her professional website.

Description: Yes, I also do event materials! I was commissioned by the couple to design their wedding program. But this was no ordinary wedding program.
