Design

Working full time at Strange & Wonderful has provided me with many opportunities to flex my conceptual design skills. Below are examples where I've worked on design through production. My Dailies page contains more design. 

 

Strange & Wonderful Social Media Promotional Pitch

Something abstract. Something shiny. Something social. Something strange. 


 

ESL Madden Pitch

At Strange & Wonderful I pitched on the ESL graphics package for the Madden NFL Championship Series. Having some background in live graphics and a budding admiration for the rapidly growing e-sports industry, I was elated to have the opportunity. We submitted two designs, won the job, and delivered over 50 individual animated graphics.  Our original vision for the ESL Madden 18 was a "Polished Mech". I sought to create a familiar industrial design framework with a clean finish. Constructive architecture presented a clear directive for GFX articulation. Light played a large role in balancing the dark materials housing graphics by filling the frame and forming the environment.

Oregon Lottery

Through Strange & Wonderful I was given the opportunity to beef up the existing Oregon Lottery logo. An artist fabricated a large scale logo which we then shot and roughed up in post. I created both the final photo and animation used in their current branding. Below is one example where the logo and animation was used in a commercial broadcast shot by Strange & Wonderful.

The Graveyard Shift

"The Graveyard Shift" is a short horror film directed by Peter Feysa. I laid out options for degraded type and later composited the finalized credits.
