Some of the campaigns I've worked on for Amazon Fire TV product line (FireTV, FireTV Stick, and FireTV + HD Antenna Bundle) in 2017.
I was tasked to be the lead designer for one of Amazon's newest product that was officially announced on September 27th. This new device will now support 4K HDR video with 2160p resolution at 60 frames per second. It has Dolby Atmos integration and an Alexa Voice Remote.
I've always admired science visuals that incorporates a damn good visual design. However the Periodic Table of Elements is often poorly designed and/or bland. I was inspired by "The Elements by Theodore Gray", a visual-heavy representation of the Periodic Table of Elements.
Some of the campaigns I've worked on for Amazon Fire TV product line (FireTV, FireTV Stick, FireTV Gaming Edition, and FireTV Cord Cutter Bundle) since April 2016.
I was asked to speak at TEDxBoulder on September 17. The theme was Discovery & Wonder and my topic was on why we need universal design.
I art directed an interactive, multimedia campaign for FirstBank where skiers and snowboarders can find one of 100 orange cubes (FirstBank's logo) hidden at Copper Mountain and win a free pair of skis or a snowboard.
Deschutes Brewery built street pubs in Denver, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Cleveland and took over city blocks and provide live music entertainment, games, and most importantly- beer. I was assigned to help document/create a case study for my agency’s successful campaign.
I was the lead art director for this account and helped create the current feel/tagline/voice of their company. The main idea was that customers can read ingredients while their pets can’t, prompting the fact that Organix has the “best” ingredients than any other dog food competitors.
I was responsible for designing the packaging for Daiya product line that included Cheezy Mac, Farmhouse Cheeze Blocks, and Gluten-Free Pizza.
In my spare time, I honed my animation skills by taking on a year-long solo pet project illustrating/animating every single object, and creating a 5,000+ layered files and making an spec ad for a huge but largely taken-for-granted American company; OTIS Elevators.
I created several apps to make an universal platform that works across all devices to provide access to quality subtitles anytime, anywhere in the world. And to provide the service for free.
I created a website to include online store capabilities and stronger branding. To maintain unity and consistency, I also updated their visual identity on social media.
Phil Knight (CEO of Nike and a long-time philanthropist for OHSU) challenged Oregon Health & Science University to raise half a billion dollars in 2 years and he would match it. I art-directed a campaign for OHSU to achieve that challenge.
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.
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.
Maps of Mars are all the same. I went pseudo-science. All current missions are represented by ships and former missions are shipwrecks. I traced shorelines from a real topographical map made by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
Working at a reputable advertising agency can be overwhelming for anybody— but being deaf sometimes adds another layer of chaos. I had to improvise quickly to keep my head above water.
As a good Catholic youngster, I spent my Sunday mornings staring at church ceilings and observing architectural details. Some habits die hard; as an adult, I collect photographs of ceilings from around the world. #ceilingscape to submit yours.
