Working for over a year on Kentucky Fired Chicken's social media I was able to design, art direct, and concept some really fun ideas and collaborated with creatives on hundreds of others. These are some of my favorites from my time working on KFC.

This project was developed for an ad campaign. Nosh-A-Thon is a series of events based around the love of food. The people of Portland will have a chance to challenge themselves in a variety of competitions from eating to cooking and an assortment of very messy activities. We have gathered a collection of diverse food establishments located in Portland for the opportunity to challenge themselves in friendly cook-offs. Nosh-A-Thon has selected Portlanders for its eating contests to claim the right to be true food guzzling champions.
This new brand concept for the Oregon Zoo is very simple, elegant, and fun. The goal behind the identity created will uphold a timeless appeal that will allow the brand to strive into the future. That is what the last logo tried to accomplish, but now they need to strive for a more recognizable identity. The successes of these ideas incorporated into the new branding will help support the zoo and the organizations it partners with for many years to come. With this success it will also sell a new demographic on the zoo and create new experiences for visitors that may otherwise not have enjoyed it in the past.
An illustration created for Maletis Beverage, to showcase their participating brands. Since the event takes place downtown at the waterfront I thought the skyline was fitting of the content.
This series of classic american automobiles was inspired by my interest in classic cars. I wanted to explore this through digital illustration and screen-printing.

This was a timeline created for a magazine article about winter craft beers. Most breweries start and finish their brewing processes at different times and this clever infographic gives you almost all the information you need about your favorite winter seasonals in an interesting way.
Beersmith is a typeface I created from influences of tuscan slab serifs and wood type. I have always loved chunky slab serifs and this was designed as a hybrid with old and modern styles. I wanted to create a display face that would be unique to the category and lend itself to fun new pairings and settings.
This poster came from my research into butchery and what happens to the rest of the animal when processing for consumption. Most countries, unlike the US, consume every part of the animal in its entirety, leaving nothing to waste. I tried to highlight this information in a new interesting way that is more approachable for a modern american audience.
A friend currently operates a small batch brewing company from his home and needed a real logo. The logo was inspired by 4-wheeling and the Bent Lever name was from the levers on his childhood dirt-bike.
For this project I read a journal about Benjamin Franklin’s printing experiences. It seemed he was experimenting with different layouts and type, so I thought I would do the same. Except, I was going to restrict myself to only use Adobe Caslon. The project was to make a zine using only content found from a book. After I finished the zine it was better suited to be a type specimen, but could work for both.
After recording my eating habits for a week I decided to make my infographic about everything I ate. I also compared my eating habits to the amount of money I was spending on my food consumption.
Branding this restaurant was a re–design of an old self motivated project from a design class at Clackamas Community College. I really liked the concept behind the restaurant. I just needed to execute the design in a more modern way than before and that is what I have done here.
