This was a collaboration for a longtime friend, Joel Dunn. He has served as a youth director for St. John's Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles for many years and recently changed jobs to become the youth director for Malibu Pres, which allows him more time to be with his family as well. He approached me about helping brand the the junior and high school age group with a look that could have interchangeable parts for different themes within the group that he wants to focus on and tie into the overall church. So we came up with this logotype of Build, with unique backgrounds and distinctive letter "B"s.
This is a collection of some of the spreads I created for Camp Pondo's 2014 Summer Brochure and a sample of the custom fliers and posters I made that their guests could download for their own use.
This brochure was created while I was employed as the Lead Designer for Forest Home, Inc. The list of photo credits for all of the shots that were used for this piece include Kyle White, Kyle Ng, Eric McFarland, Victoria Caldwell, Amber Breedveld, Josh Avis, and myself. This was mailed out to Forest Home's mailing lists as a way to highlight all of our various program offerings for the entire year. The artistic direction, composition and execution was all done by me and spanned several months. All Forest Home circle logos presented here were originally designed by Kevin Sterner of Brandpoet, Inc.
These are all parts of larger projects that called for hand-drawn lettering. When applicable, the photo shows the lettering in context and occasionally, other hand-drawn elements.
was approached by Nate Westwick, founder of Wild Goose Coffee Roasters, a couple years ago to help him create a bag design for his fair-trade, socially-minded coffee. Since then I've helped Nate with multiple projects for Wild Goose Coffee Roasters (more photos to be added soon), becoming a part of his marketing vision.
This is a collection of some of the shirt graphics I've created over the years. Many were done for Forest Home, Inc., when we brought the apparel design in-house. Those designs we were able to set up photo shoots and have people model the actual apparel. Several of the others were created for other clients I've had since then, including Camp Pondo and Deo Volente Industries/Zoe Clothing Company. They have been mocked up for what they might look like, though I haven't had the privilege of seeing the final product on all of them.
This is an assortment of graphics from my two main camp clients (Camp Pondo and Forest Home, Inc.) Sometimes they've involved booklets and posters and at other times, giant banners to hang in amphitheatres. I have combined my skills in typography, lettering, photoshop rendering and color to create design that didn't just fit the theme, but proclaimed it boldly and worked across multiple mediums.
