PINK MARTINI

Pink Martini needed a unified visual/feel for their album art, press kits, and promotions. I pitched several ideas before landing on hot air balloons to echo the joy in their Get Happy album. This culminated in a bigger project- my team was tasked with publicizing their album release in Portland with a free concert in Pioneer Square before doing more promotional work in New York.

YOUTUBE

If you are deaf, hard of hearing, or speak another language- it’s hard to keep up with the latest cat videos. YouTube does have automatic captions, but they tend to be inaccurate and inconsistent at best. My idea, (inspired by Wikipedia and Reddit) is to open captioning up to the YouTube community for user-editing.

DESIGN WEEK PORTLAND

An annual event that designers, makers, and thinkers can look forward to. Their mission is to allow creatives to explore the process, practice, and craft of design across disciplines. Wieden + Kennedy participated by hosting a symposium entitled “Non-Billable Hours” to showcase a selection of employees and their off-the-clock projects.
