This book was created as a type of special edition collection for Ray-Ban. Designed to be a case display or included in special edition glasses. This book is printed on a 10 ft piece of some very sexy paper. I bound it myself using an accordion book binding method. I then silkscreened the front and back covers on a cream textile book cloth. The idea behind the book was to explain the culture behind the iconic brand. How it got started and how it evolved into such a recognizable brand.
This was a fun little project I got to do for a company creating an app on Spotify. They are called Listen Up and they are bringing the artist and fans together in a very cool way. They needed a promotional postcard and asked me to do it. Be sure to check them out on Spotify and sign up to get closer to your favorite bands!
I’ve got to do some really good work for this new organic salon on Music Row here in Nashville. Pure is an all organic salon. They wanted some clean and simple. I worked up a nice type logo, website, ads, menus, business cards, and signage. Visit them and book an appointment here! They are an amazing group of people committed to giving a great client experience and making you look good!
Dyno is a grill and meat seasoning kit. I like when my food is seasoned well with some power behind it. The idea was an explosion of flavor. I created a stick of dynamite for the “Flavor Fuel”. A couple seasoning containers one being the “Boom Powder” and the other being the “Danger Rub”. I got a hold of a brass knuckle style meat tenderizer which fit the theme perfect. Created a custom wooden box and silkscreened the logo on top.
Being a huge motorcycle enthusiast I wanted to create a campaign for one of the most recognizable brands out there. There is something about riding a motorcycle that is very animalistic. You get to experience the world in a very unique way. Rubber is laid down, engines are roaring and everyone is riding in a pack. You power through the world completely exposed to nature. I wanted to tap into this sense of freedom and power. Showing some of their newest most radical bikes they offered. Be the leader of the pack. Ride a Harley.
This was a team project to create a infograph poster. Myself and two others decided to get all cultured on it. Also typically people enjoy talking about music, books and travel. We got some pretty interesting information. The three of us contributed to some concepts and I took over the final design. As a lover of typography I thought it was a good opportunity to explore a lot of type faces. Turns out in the country music capital art students don't like country music!
An editorial design project. We were instructed to come up with an idea for a magazine but everyone had to name it "Context". We designed a logo for it then proceeded to create a cover, content page and two spreads. I wanted to create a magazine that was in the realm of art, history, culture and politics. The main focus of this project was type setting and layout design. Being a typofanatic (is that a word?) I had a lot of fun with this project. I want this magazine.
Spin Advertising is a advertising company in Owensboro, KY. Specializing in indoor advertising. They really wanted to utilize QR codes in everything they could so I said how bout the logo? Luckily I was able to destroy the QR code enough so that it still worked but appeared as the “IN” in SPIN. I then created their website as well as some business cards.
I was lucky enough to land an internship at Country Music Television here in Nashville. I worked with 4 other artists ranging from posters, promotional material, email blasts, branding among other things. These are some of the fun projects I got to work on. The top one being a huge piece of wall art measuring about 5ft x 3ft. I also got to do some ad work and poster work for special events.
An actual Kentucky Colonel. Ego is a man of many methods. Employing numerous counterparts on all of his records. Colonel Ego is a mix of creepy vocals, serious guitar shredding and some wicked drumming. He asked me to make him a killer website recently as well as some packaging for his latest project "Colonel Ego's Pirates for Hire". As always he let me do my thing with one stipulation, it had to have skull and cross bones. Luckily that's one of my favorite things to draw. Added some hand done type and bam!
Insectum is a series of prints and promotional items I created that started from the Cicada invasion that recently hit Nashville in the last couple years. I had never been in an area that was invaded by these types of bugs. It was very strange but was a great opportunity to draw some insects! I then screen printed a series of six different insect posters. I also created some stickers, coffee mugs and postcards.
This project was a collaboration with local creative group Anderson Design Group. They have several travel poster series they often outsource to local artists. The style is done in a retro Americana look. This can be purchased on their store website.
The scene depicts a famous bull fight at Plaza De Toro in Madrid, Spain.
