I had the privilege of creating a 30 second title sequence and marketing art for the 2019 New York Film Festival theatrical experience, The Raven. Drawing from over fifty short stories, poems and historical letters, The Raven crafts an immersive virtual and theatrical experience of mystery and suspense as participants discover Edgar Allan Poe's literary genius, descent into madness and the truth behind his mysterious disappearance and untimely death.
Revive Church reached out to me to create a 30 second intro title sequence to kick off their opening launch day. The sequence would be used for a period of 9 weeks, and needed to showcase the overall feel theme and topics of the book of Philippians.
Some really playful designs for the US Tennis Association. This pitch had a a fast turnaround at a little over a day. Produced at Ghost Robot.
When spare time collides with creative inspiration it can spark some beautiful designs.
Designs for the 2018 Superbowl Half-Time Show ten second countdown sponsored by Pepsi. The idea behind these designs was to showcase over one hundred years of Pepsi's history through vintage ads and marketing. They loved the designs but unfortunately ended up going in a different direction with the project.
Design concepts showcasing the universe in which Riots characters would live for the League of Legends 2018 Season Start promo. My responsibilities included the layout of the logo, type and background design.
CRL World Finals Event Opening
Design pitch for the Clash Royale League 2018 World Finals in Tokyo! Inspired by traditional Japanese brush painting, the idea behind these designs was to capture the energy, personality, and spirit of each competing League. It was a bit more challenging than I previously anticipated, finding the right balance between wet running ink and opaque colored paint strokes. In the end these two techniques blended together quite nicely. Unfortunately, they ended up going a different direction entirely and these never made it into final production.
Clash Royale League
I had the privilege of pitching a few designs for the launch of Supercell's 2018 Clash Royale League. My vision for this project was to create war torn propaganda posters and vintage comic manuals calling the CR fans to answer the call and join the League. This style was to be incorporated with provided logos into the informational stretch thumbnail which would be used for both social media and a printed accordion brochure. For the second round of designs, the client wanted to utilized the thumbnail drawings but keep the look strictly cinematic without the added comic design. They ended up moving in a different direction entirely, but I still had a blast creating these.
Illustrated poster for Backpacks For Life non-profit, showcasing their new Bowery Pack. Incredible people with an amazing story and mission. Illustrated and inked traditionally, I couldn't also help but turn it into design panel sequence.
The Good Cop
One of several design explorations I helped pitch for the TV series The Good Cop. Inspired by Friz Freleng's work and the opening title sequence to The Odd Couple, I similarly aspired to convey both character's opposite personalities in a comical, light hearted manner to coincide with the shows opening theme song.
Design and spot animations for KeyBank. I was tasked with creating the general character design to be used as reference for the design team. Other responsibilities included creating world assets as well as character and world animation. Most of the spot animations above were designed by Jordan, which I later animated. This is only a few snippets of the eight commercials I worked on.
Other designers and animators included Jordan Bruner, Yifan Hu, Carolyn Figel, Michael Cafarelli, and Nathan Goodell
