The Great Sock War

For the last few months I have been working with a company called Craftsy.  I collaborated with their wonderful production and design team to help create this piece called "The Great Sock War".

State Farm Installation Complete

FINALLY we have finished an installation for Rita Gutierrez of State Farm . The goal of this installation was to increase the awareness of a State Farm Agency in the lower part of a building. Walla! The prints are on a semi-transparent material that allows light to come through while maintaining the image integrity.

Photos for Moss Pink Flora and Botanicals

A few months ago Greg Amanti and I collaborated in taking photos for Moss Pink Flora and Botanicals new website. Here are some of my favorites.

First day of SPRING

What a beautiful day!  Spring is here, liliacs are starting to bloom and finally it's raining!

We are in final revisions with QuickZip's animation, and working with a wonderful illustrator Matt Wood on a super hero, eco friendly animation for a non-profit in C.A. We also had the pleasure of working with Romy Purshouse on her animation for the city of Boulder as well as Lucia of Sustineo Creative and sound designer Dan Barnhart of Arsenal Studios.

On the print side, we have some preliminary logo sketches for a new furniture design company Eighty Split Studios located in both Denver and S.F. The evolution and thought process behind logo development has always fascinated me. We love process, and for this piece, we will share the growth and final implementation of the Eight Split Studios identity.
