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.

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!

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!

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.

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.
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.
