The Rob Sheehy Experience CD Jacket

Even though the Rob Sheehy Experience never asked me to play in their band (but asked all of my friends) I decided it might be fun to do a CD jacket for them since I've never done one before.  I decided to play off of one of their more interesting songs, Latawnya the Naughty Horse, based off of a children's book about a horse who got mixed up with drugs and alcohol.  I also thought that their music since so Avante Garde could be interpreted as unworldly and decided to use outer space as the background.  The story I was trying to tell I guess was maybe Latawnya was about to hit rock bottom, which was why she was on that ledge constructed of the i.  The Typography seems appropriate; it's cluttered and disorganized much like their music.

Little Ones

The new issue of NSIDE came out today, which means...

...I'm officially published! It's a very small step, but it is a step, and I'm really excited about it. They're my children!

Threadless #4

A design i came up with a long time ago and decided it was worth a shot on the Threadless website.

Threadless #2

Another threadless submission inspired by the connection between swear words and the French pronunciation of the word "phoque" which is "seal" in French.  Hopefully other people find it clever.

Galactic Editorial

Another mock editorial, this one inspired by space.  I like it because besides the font every single thing was done from scratch.

I'm taking a shot at threadless this summer.  This is my first design.

Hipster Editorial

Haven't done enough of these, and I was really inspired by a party I attended to make the articles about "The Hipster"

UNT NTEEC Brochure

A brochure I did for NTEEC.  After wading through several bad ideas, I finally figured out that the recycling symbol had kind of a futuristic, cell-like shape.  I like this one for its cleaness, and that it uses a minimal amount of ink when printed.  Go GREEN!

The List Brochure

The jacket I did for a list of environmentally safe office products produced by different companies.  I would have posted the inside, but it's just a big boring list.

Some old marks

These are some marks and business cards I did for VMIX that I completely forgot about.  I love how clean the logotype worked out.


This project gave me a migraine, mainly because I spent four hours doing it wrong and had to start over.  Luckily a friend was nice enough to A) Tell me to my face I was doing it wrong, and B) show me how to do it correctly.

Tomb Raider Poster

I'm a huge Tomb Raider fan, and I just wanted to see what I could come up with if I designed a poster for them.  I had several ideas of what she could be posing with, but ultimately decided one of the most memorable scenes would be Lara facing off against the Tyranasaurus Rex, it also really worked with the tagline.  Long live Lara Croft!

Recycling Flyer/Poster

This is a poster I did for my internship.  It was partly inspired by those old classic posters you see.  I wanted to do something very simple.  I wanted to make it look a little more eye catching so I made it look a little crumpled up.  (Below) A really cracked out picture my friend took of me with the newly printed posters.  I'm much hotter in real life.

UNT Recycling NTEEC brochure

 I've looked at these far too many times. They were originally going to be magnets for my internship to just raise awareness for recyclable and non recyclable items but it ended up being a hand out.

Big Mike's Coffee Logos

The following Logos were those that I did for a design contest held for a coffee shop called Big Mike's Coffee.

So for this one I was just experimenting with rough type.  I like taking clean type and wearing it out, just to see how far I can go before you can't read it.  Dirty, rough type is making a comeback from what I've seen.
Coffee on the brain?  This one is easily my favorites.  I wanted to add a different, personal concept to the design of Big Mike's coffee.  An image that could not easily be forgotten.
This is me being me.  I like the quirkiness of it, but I just feel like I do this style all the time, and wanted to move away from it.
This was an idea I had inspired by a color wheel.  I thought the different shades of brown could represent different flavors of coffee.
I had no idea what Big Mike really looked like, and I thought the logo could use a personal accent on it, making it his own.  I came up with this rough, smiley face idea.
This was just an idea I had when exploring what I could do with the typography, making the G of the "Big" nestle the coffee cup.
Same exact concept as above but with different font and in a different shape.
While researching (aka me drinking coffee) I noticed the ring that's almost always left by a coffee mug and thought up a concept to use this as part of the logo.  The first ones I did resembled skid marks but this one is clean and easily recognizable as a coffee ring.

This would be the "safe" logo I did.  It could really go for any coffee shop name, but I liked the simplicity and cleanness of it.  I added a stirring stick to make it seem more unique.
