One of my favorite graphics packages of the year. While the event may have been delayed 3 months and raced without fans, I'm proud of the work we put into this package, giving it the grandeur that its 104 year history so rightfully deserved. Congrats Takuma Sato.
2020 INDY 500 SIZZLE
NBC MOTORSPORTS SIZZLE
NBC is not just the home, but the heart of motorsports. This graphics rip is the personification of that love and passion. The graphical language and brand of NASCAR, IndyCar, and IMSA are all celebrated. I hope you enjoy watching as much as we had creating these packages.
In 2018 I was the art director in charge of the FIFA World Cup graphics package for Telemundo. This project was a joint venture with Big Block Studios. The goal was to capture the prestige and magnificence of the event as well as communicating the opulence of Russian culture which was the host country. This was one of the most challenging projects of my career and one that I am quite proud of.
TELEMUNDO WORLD CUP SIZZLE
SOUTHERN MISS ATHLETIC IDENTITY
Sports Identity Design has always been a passion of mine. In college I had the opportunity of a lifetime interning at Rare Design. While I was there, we were rebranding the Southern Miss Athletic Identity. This is my take on the primary mark for my alama mater.
GULF COAST SEABEES IDENTITY
A few years ago the Mississippi Gulf Coast was awarded a Double-A baseball franchise. They were eventually given the name the Biloxi Shuckers. This was my concept for the franchise. The name was paid in homage to the Naval Construction Battalion Center where the term Seabee or "CB" comes from. it is one of only 2 Seabee bases in the U.S. and is a major part of the Gulf Coast's identity.
ATLANTA STARLINGS WNBA IDENTITY
A few years ago when Atlanta was awarded a WNBA Franchise, this was my take on their name and identity. Starlings are fast and gregarious birds which echo that of the athletes in the WNBA. The idea of a bird being their namesake was also to align themselves with their NBA brother team the Atlanta Hawks.
NASCAR AMERICA SHOW LOGO
Just finishing our 6th year on the air, NASCAR AMERICA is the flagship show for all things NASCAR on NBCSN. The inspiration behind the design came from old school gas station signage like Amoco and Standard.
HOOK GULF COAST CUISINE
This logo was designed for a wonderful
little seafood restaurant in the sleepy town of Pass Christian, MS. The owner & chef is also quite the angler, which helped inspire not only the name of his fine establishment but the logo as well.
MC LEMAY FURNITURE DESIGNER
MC Lemay, is a furniture designer in
Atlanta Georgia. Her primary medium is steel and her aesthetic is very modern and minimalist which greatly influenced the design of her logo.
ARE THESE BOOKS DRUNK?
This was a super fun project which let me break out of the "sports" box that I'm so often placed in. I illustrated and designed the key art for this fabulous podcast of 3 working actresses who get together every Thursday for a book club where they also do a cocktail pairing with each episode. "A book club, with a twist." I feel that the key art really embodies the show and captures the personalities of the super talented women who put this amazing show together every week.
INTERPOL GIG POSTER
I designed this poster for INTERPOL's first ever headlining show at Madison Square Garden. Illustration has always been a passion of mine and COVID has afforded me the extra time to do this kind of work.
While designing the logo for MC years ago and watching her work, I fell in love with welding. Along the way we became friends and I began working alongside her in her shop creating my own pieces. Working with my hands and physically manipulating steel is an amazing feeling, especially when my normal tool of choice is a mouse or stylus.
