I created the title installation and catalog for an exhibition focusing on photographic collage and impermanence.

As viewers walked down the hallway toward the gallery entrance, the letter fragments began to solidify. Just as they entered the gallery, the pieces came together to create the fleeting illusion of readability. A couple steps after they entered, the illusion was gone.

Limited edition seeding kit based on the guiding philosophy of adidas EQT: "Everything that is essential. Nothing that is not."

Another container to put product in is hardly essential, but we challenged ourselved to create the next best thing—a core structure created from a single piece of folded corrugate, wrapped in frosted vinyl. Raw, minimal, and extremely cost effective.

League of Legends is one of the most popular games in the world. But an IP born from digital needed help to achieve art book status. View

Our team collected, curated, and designed 320 pages of character commentary, sketches, and final art. I designed the cover, refined the layout, and led print execution. After shipping the book, I worked on a team that brought the experience back to digital.

Streamers went out of their way to celebrate, and the Collector's Edition sold out within hours. Kotaku thought the digital art book was 'incredible'.

We worked with adidas to art direct photographer Marcus Smith in shooting four adidas athletes on ice. Then we developed a 'fuck off' aesthetic to bring the campaign to life.

After establishing creative, we open-sourced the design, creating guidelines and toolkits for all 31 NHL teams.

I hypothetically rebranded an organization fighting to preserve the temperate rainforests in Alaska.

Rainforests are categorized by an annual precipitation of 68 to 78 inches. The only difference between a tropical rainforest and a temperate one is temperature. Although the coastal temperate rainforests of Alaska don't receive as much attention as those in the Amazon, they are still endangered.

The adidas EQT FW17 campaign pays tribute to the city of Detroit and the artists who create there. I designed a sculpture inspired by this setting.

I sold an exhibition edition on a custom, stripped-down usb drive. Buying digital art is weird.

There's nothing bolder than a global brand handing control of a campaign to a group of local high school artists.

Brands misuse words like 'authentic' and 'hyper-local' when trying to connect with savvy consumers. They spend a lot of resources trying to relate to them, when in reality they should be working with them.

We asked five groups of high school student photographers to explore their city and visualize the campaign tagline 'No time to think'. I art directed these teams and designed an installation with their work.

I created an identity for a theatrical production of Bent.

The pink triangle is recognizable as the symbol identifying gay and lesbian prisoners in WWII concentration camps, but remains effective as visual punctuation, even if the viewer isn't aware of its history.

I created an identity for RISD's alumni weekend that was as eclectic as the people attending.

I embraced 'design by committee' with a grid of text, patterns, and photos where everyone had a place for their own creative vision. Future designers evolved this identity for several years, updating patterns, colors, and imagery.
