Datalandify Yourself was a responsive site created while I was at Mekanism as part of GE’s Datalandia, a series of mock movie trailers that took place in a miniature world. The Datalandify Yourself application allowed people to submit photos of themselves and enter to win a 3D Printed figure in their likeness.
I was tasked with designing the entire site, both mobile and desktop versions, as well as packaging for the miniature figures and touchups on submitted photos to ensure quality.
We worked closely with developers to ensure the site would be intuitive and work across all devices, and sucessfully collected the submissions needed to Datalandify 100 of our contestants.
MF DOOM is a hip-hop artist known for his super villain persona, multiple alter-egos, and complicated songs that use samples from cartoons, movies and a wide range of musical history.
The DOOMIVERSE board game provides a discography collection that is as multi-layered as the man himself. You can play along as one of DOOM’s many alter-egos, and delve deeper into the world of hip-hop’s only supervillain.
Various Posters I have created in the last few years. Some school work, some personal work, a mix.
A poster advertising the show 'Talk to Me' at the MoMA. The show is on interactive design and systems and how people use technological objects in their lives. I wanted to convey the sheer depth of this massive show, as well as capture its fun nature and heavy digital theme.
Book Covers for a series on cultural history. Meant to work together as a whole while still speaking about each book individually.
Culture encompasses a wide variety of things: history, art, music, religion, politics, literature, film, and countless other elements. But what is really at the heart of every culture is the people that make it up.
The darker side of branding: when a business is so successful at projecting a friendly, human image that people forget all the terrible things it is doing.
A series of posters calling attention to the real harm happening behind those colorful logos, and the disconnect between image and actions.
The World Science Festival is an annual celebration and exploration of science. It seeks to inspire and engage the public on this fascinating field.
A personal project reimagining what the (currently very dry) identity could be. The identity is flexible to reflect the diversity and possibility within science.
A series of posters based off of ridiculous Craigslist ads I came across in one of my many apartment hunt adventures in NYC.
The knife is one of mankind’s earliest and most versatile tools. Stay Sharp provides all you need to know to keep your knife in excellent condition. Includes information on care, history and proper usage.
Stay Sharp is based in the belief that knives are just as beautiful as they are dangerous, and should be treated as such.
William S. Burroughs has said that Naked Lunch is meant to be read in any order. At times both grotesque and beautiful, this non-linear narrative makes leaps in time, place and logic constantly. This book set breaks up the exhausting novel in 10 parts, so it can be read in any order, though the order is implied if one wishes to read that way.
Slice Harvester is a man on a mission, a blog, a zine, and now, an app. Colin Hagendorf spent years reviewing every single pizza place in Manhattan and writing reviews in the form of zines and his blog, which is equal parts pizza, punk rock and positivity.
Int his personal project, I imagined Slice Harvester as an App that lets you find every single SH-reviewed pizza place and embark on your own pizza-eating quest.
Penny Dreadful was an idea pitched while I was at Mekanism for the Showtime Series Penny Dreadful. We had no assets, very little information, and two main things to go on: Monsters of Literature and Victorian London.
With those things in mind, we created The Penny Reader - A digital hub for all things Penny Dreadful that would pull in a user's facebook information and use it to populate a creepy, personalized paper.
Part of the Penny Reader was a few microsites that would tie loosely into the show's characters without giving too much away - The one I designed was called "Sell Your Body to Science", which used shady Victorian Pseudoscience to determine a person's physical worth, with the assumption being that they would be sold to Dr. Frankenstein for this price upon their demise.
Not a pitch we won, but a fun one to design!
Pitch work while I was at Mekanism to design a modular landing page for people who were attending live tapings of the Today show.
The briefs heavily emphasized warmth and light, which we used to guide our designs in these proposed solutions.
A proposed homepage design for Quirky, a crowdsourced invention platform.
We wanted to emphasize the two main purposes of the site: To buy products or contribute to their invention.
