Working for over a year on various Kentucky Fired Chicken social media campaigns I was the primary production designer overseeing much of the design and layout of the final assets for posting. I was also able to design, art direct, and concept some really fun ideas and collaborate with art directors, copy writers, and creative directors on hundreds of others. These are some of my favorites from my time working on KFC.
Bottle label design for Burnside Brewing in Portland, OR. This is a summer seasonal beer release.
Gig poster for an internal event at wieden+kennedy.
This is the second small batch label design that I’ve done for Burnside Brewing. This beer is brewed in White Oak French wine barrels, and is mixed from a range of 6 month to 24 month old barrels. The design is based off of french influences of typography and architecture.
Printed on foil label in black/Maroon/Gold.
For Mothers Day we sent out “Tender Wings of Desire” a romance novella, to Moms around the nation. I designed the book cover with my creative team and all other graphic assets and packaging for this fun execution.
We also fabricated some Biscuit Earphones to thank Good Mythical Morning for reviewing the book on their “Biscuit Ears” show segment. I designed and crafted the packaging that would house the Biscuit Earphones.
Wedding invitations, save the date and thank you cards for a campy Oregon coast wedding.
Bottle label design for Burnside Brewing in Portland, Or. This is a spring seasonal beer release.
This was a passion project that I started on November 5th, 2014 and continued for the following year. Every fifth of the month I sent a postcard to a friend who was incarcerated by doing a different typographic exploration. Every card I would send would be the amount of days remaining in his sentence. This started as a way for use to share a common thread through design and has expanded into something that I really take pride in. I never knew the weight that this project would carry, but through this discovery it has opened my eyes to the power of relationships and using art as a foundation for communication.
KFC LTD was a partnership through Staples that allowed us to create a e-commerce store that held limited edition KFC merchandise. These hats were something that I designed and available in the store when it was live. They were one of the top items to sell out.
The fried chicken camo apparel below was another idea I had. The clients and creatives really loved the idea and wanted to get the vest made. However, in the end there was hight cost involved to get the vest produced which meant that it didn’t make the cut.
These medallions were created as a piece of the cover art for four different mobile games leading up to the release of Kubo and the Two Strings. The games were developed by an outside company and I worked on the illustrations in the medallions with the senior designer on the project.
Small batch barrel aged bottle label design for Burnside Brewing. For Saga the owner and head brewer wanted to make something that had a steam-punk and beer aesthetic. I came up with the idea of a steam-punk brewery illustration that could house the type on the brewery equipment. This was the first in a three part limited series.
Printed on foil label in black/white/copper.
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.
These are two ads that ran in ESPN Magazine leading up the the Super Bowl and during March Madness. I working with and Art Director, Copy Writer and Design Director to finalize these for production.
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.
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. Before taking on this project I had never made any art prints or screen-printed using paper. All of these prints were created as 3 prints on 12x12 paper and ave available on my Etsy for sale.

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 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.
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.
