Simple solutions to complex problems.
Have you checked out the GET SAFE® Movement for Change podcast with Stuart Haskin? With this project, I remastered existing recordings, designed title cards, and set up all the backend programming so hosting of the show can be controlled in-house and distributed to all major platforms.
For a business like Cool King® the cup is more than just a disposable vessel of consumption. When you pose for social with your most recent dessert creation, the cup has to be as cool as you and what’s in it.
These are the two logo designs “The Selleck” went with to brand their amazing short term rental located in the heart of Palm Springs. I highly recommend if you’re going to be out that way, you look into making it your “home away from home” while you are there. Book your next stay at The […]
As the video states, everyone has a story. With this project, mine starts with receiving raw content to work with. They had already recorded a voice over performed by Stuart Haskin. From these pieces I composed the video seen in the link. Tasks I performed for this project: Remaster the audio track to clean up […]
It was at the beginning of the lockdown, and my friend who has a yogurt shop was concerned that he was not going to be able to supply his customers with their favorite dessert. In Huntington Beach, Cool King® is a neighborhood favorite. Many will drive a great distance for their unique flavors and quality […]
I was perusing through Fermentation Farm’s IG account (@ferm.farm) and found a post showing some labels I designed for them. On their Instagram profile you can learn how to mix up your own fermented root beer float. As they say, “Healthy Gut = Healthy Life”. #fermfarm #fermentation #healthfood #organic #rootbeer #coconutmilk #coconut #labeldesign #graphicdesign #graphics […]
I declare, Vanilla is not mundane! A flavor this bold deserves all the love it can handle. Cool King’s soft serve ice cream personifies the flavor’s amazing flavor and this motion graphic celebrates that. #motiongraphics #graphicdesign #digitalpromotion #graphics #branding #design
I had the opportunity to take product photos for Vici Wellness to use for their online store. They requested all product photos to have transparent backgrounds and they wanted the transparency of surfaces to function as in real life. This meant, if an item was glass, the underlying color the image was placed over needed […]
This is a fun project from when I helped Stuart out from GET SAFE®. With this project I took on the following rolls: cameraman, video editor, sound engineer, animator, photo editor, copy writer, and graphic designer.
Below is the copy I came up with for Cool King® to use for a standard Instagram post as well as a motion graphic. Did you know our Açaí sorbet is the real deal? This natural powerhouse is non-dairy, gluten free, boosts brain function, promotes heart health, and turbo charges your immune system. Not bad […]
Fermentation Farm has grown into the “go to” purveyor of high-quality, hand-crafted nourishing foods. I respect they set the bar high with their expectation for excellence. The Yelp community does as well since they rated them #3 of the top 100 in the nation of 2022. Throughout the years I have had the opportunity to […]
With this project the goal was to incorporate older footage with some of the new content I shot. The intent was to show the company’s experience as well as the services they provide. This video is being used for social media marketing as well as the header piece on the web page associated with these […]
This is the graphic I created for Wild Rose Bakers. The goal was to design something that had interesting texture and detail when scaled large, but also functioned well when used in situations where a small image was needed.
This is a motion graphic that I created to add into sequence for the menu screens at Cool King® Frozen Yogurt & Desserts.
Would you consider it trite to toot your own horn? Can self-promotion be done in a tasteful and formative manner, without offensive trappings and being perceived as braggadocious. Here I showcase projects I had the pleasure of being part of, and I hope by causing focus, it brings further success to all who participated.
Are you puzzled?
I believe design is not unlike solving a puzzle. The pieces are there, we just have to have the vision and perseverance to forge on and find the right fit. A concept dangles in the æther — faint, small, and undefined. With time, concentration, and emotion, it can be built into something unexpected and original. Anyone that knows me will testify, I will not stop until a resolve is found. This journey of concept to creation is fulfilling, and the reason I keep opening the box and dumping the pieces on the floor.
