Back in Art School, I started out as a painter! These might turn out to be studies for large scale paintings or just a way to kill time on the bus.
This year is about Music, Graffiti and murals from Chicago, Dominican Republic and Haiti. I tried to incorporate the spirit into this series of posters which will be on sale at the event.
For the 8th Annual benefit, the theme is music! We ran with the idea and are excited about the possibility of designing this theme to promote the event in October! Stay tuned for more designs to follow.

Last year we got an opportunity to brand a non-profit organization that do amazing work. They help people in Haiti and the Dominican Republic get quality healthcare without spending a dime. We are super excited to share this video which tells the story in full. To see more of our branding check it out here.
I took a short term gig at a great Agency in Denver called The Factory! While there, I helped out on many different projects including these two for an awesome client!
This is a look book brochure for the Summit Series.!
These are a few packaging projects for their lightweight jackets. These were sent to different retailers nationwide to help promote the brand.
Over the past 6 years, I had the great pleasure of creating a new brand for a Benefit that is near to my heart. The Benefit raises money to send artists and medical staff over to Haiti and the Dominican Republic. To keep the event fresh each year, we develop a new identity which is then carried through the branding campaign for each year. I put together the evolution of this branding to show how the logo/mark changes from year to year.
First two years the Annual benefit was called "Art for Haiti", then it changed to "Art for Health". I love creating a new look for each year to keep things interesting not only for me, but also for the people who come to the show from year to year.

Every year I brand this amazing event which raises cash to send Doctors and Artists to Haiti and D.R. It's always a fun project because I try to develop a whole new identity for each year. This being the 6th one, I went with a very typographic logo which has a feel of a neon art sign. The poster still uses the logo but has icons connected to it which symbolize what the event is all about. It will be a 3 color 18"x24"silkscreen poster printed on Pop-Tone Black Licorice French Paper! Here is the design from last year so you can see how the look changes from each year.
Well, another 4 years has gone by and it's time to vote for our next president. I love creating a poster each term because it really gets my creative juices flowing. Four years ago I designed this poster which talked about balance. This term I want to bring to the surface "individuality". This topic is very important especially with every major topic which has been discussed on the campaign trail. I used typography as characters to express how important it is for us to stay true to ourselves during these Elections. I hope it reaches some people and makes them go out and Vote. This is an initiative created by AIGA which will be spread across the Nation.
