DESIGN & COLLATERAL

MATERIAL

As a graphic designer, I am not content to leave my film work up to the interpretation of another marketer. These are the posters and DVD labels I have created for my films, as well as brochures and logos that I have created in the course of my work.

I designed this classic sepia and monochrome poster and DVD cover to pair with the historical and agricultural details of my film.

Covering a period from the 1950s to the 21st Century, this film required a design that was at once retro and modern.

I created this logo for the AASHTO event TransComm. As creative director of the project, I created the them "Finding the Common Threads of Communications," and used the classic quilt star as a base for this design. I incorporated the New River Gorge Bridge into the design since it is iconic and would serve as a location for the event.

This project was distributed in square cases. That allowed me to use 2 images to juxtapose classic trolleys with modern bus trolleys, and the image of the city at the turn of the 20th and 21st century.

Thomas Riley LOGO on black-1

Thomas Riley is a bodybuilder and fitness model. I created this logo for him as part of shaping his brand. Given the athletic and masculine nature of his activity, I used lightning bolts and bold colors to convey his dynamic.

Naked Truth logo

As the writer of a blog for a political & entertainment magazine, I was allowed to create the logo for my own page and blog. Given the title and subject matter, I wanted to steer away from any untoward ideas, so I used a classic "naked" statue to put a more intellectual slant on the phrase. Since the magazine features articles on American politics, it seemed that red, white, and blue were required but chose to use maroon, ivory, and pale turquoise to avoid a jingoistic look.

The film showcased many different scenarios in bars and stores, and I used a multihued monochrome rainbow to illustrate how they are all different.
