Over the years I’ve worn many hats, which has made me versatile as a designer and pretty good at picking up new skills as I work.
These are examples of some other projects I’ve been involved in. There’s some photography in here, product development, illustration, packaging design, more website stuff, and other things that don’t “fit” anywhere else.
I created this guy while working for Sock & Accessory Brands Global. The sock was part of a larger pack sold in Journeys. They were an instant hit on Instagram and one of Journey's best sellers that year.
A local Asian restaurant wanted to put their menu online so people could call in their order without needed a paper take-out menu. I created a simple three-page site which featured their Japanese and Chinese menus and an area on the homepage for a featured dish. Currently, I am working on the update, made responsive with Bootstrap 3.
While working for a sock design company, I had the opportunity to design custom packaging for some of the licensed brands. I had to follow strict brand guidelines so the new packaging would fit with the current packaging on other products. This sock band was for Bearpaw.
This PDQ mockup was done completely in Illustrator. I made several of these types of mockups to better present new packaging ideas while working for a local sock designer. This was my own design for Eddie Bauer socks, to be used in Sam's Club stores.
While working for a sock design company, one of the many hats I wore early on was new product development. In particular, I was tasked to design these rubber-soled socks and their packaging for a Warner Bros./DC Comic license. The Superman design was part of a series that also included Batman and Wonder Woman. The "grippy socks" were sold on Amazon to great reviews.
This is an example of product photography, taken for the Bearpaw website. A background was added to this image by Bearpaw to create lifestyle headers for the web pages.
These product photos were taken for John Deere for their buyer catalog layouts. During my time working for Sock and Accessory Brands, I did a lot of work for licensed brands and had to follow many different brand guidelines carefully.
This illustration was made entirely in Adobe Illustrator as a t-shirt and poster design.
The blog site for Axiom America was using a free Wordpress theme that did not match the new branding being developed. This new template was created from the ground up and better matches the corporate visual design
I was inspired by 80s graphic work and created this poster from vector traced photographs, handrawn elements and typefaces commonly used in 80s advertising.
This was an illustration exercise, handrawn in Photoshop with ink & paint work in Illustrator. This is 100% vector.
