Strange and Wonderful Identities

 I have access to professional production equipment and high end software while working as a full time designer for Strange and Wonderful. In my downtime I try to learn new techniques and some of these learning opportunities result in short projects. Here are some of those projects catered toward branding Strange and Wonderful. 

 

Astro

Astronaut is a short speculative identity created at Strange and Wonderful. The footage was shot by Will Hyde and the postproduction was directed by David Viau. My role in this was primarily compositing.

The Ampersand

Strange and Wonderful's ampersand was designed by Will Hyde. These six renderings of the logo were generated in Houdini by Jake Wegesin, and Lit/Textured/Rendered by me in Cinema4D. I'm hoping to populate the studio monitors with these creatures.

Stranger Beings

Riding the hype of the Netflix success "Stranger Beings" I felt it becoming on myself to seize the public's interest in the Stranger things.
