I've been designing posters for shows, movies, events, and everything else under the sun since I was 15. I typically don't get much input from the client (although any and all input is welcome and appreciated) and so I just go with whatever I think would be best for the situation. I like to think I shine under pressure and so the challenge of creating something out of thin air (usually on short notice) or creating something within the constraints of a client's needs and resources is definitely the most rewarding part of what I do.
These are some of my favorite posters I've made over the years.
Album art and branding suites for various albums.
Includes Cover Art and other pieces like CD packaging, Cassette packaging, Web Banners, T-shirt design, and logo designs for the bands.
I do a lot of work for bands and local businesses.
This is a chunk of some of the ones I'm pretty proud of.
Posters for the Electro Acoustic Barn Dance in Fredericksburg, VA. I've been designing their posters for the past 6 years and every year I try to change it up a lot. Ever since the first they like to keep the robot in there. It's become somewhat of an unofficial mascot. This is a special project for me because it's almost completely open-ended. I try to challenge myself every year to do something I've never done before and so far I believe I've lived up to that challenge.
These are an assortment of redesigned posters for documentaries about design.
Through my job at Contemporary Media, Inc. I had to chance to work on a project for Neighborhood Preservation, Inc., a local anti-blight non-profit. It was a pretty straight forward brochure meant to be something they could show off to get donations and what not. They wanted something to show off their projects and their vision as a non-profit but they wanted to be flashy and eye-catching at the same time. They provided a lot of great photos and content and I put together a solid brochure for them. Sadly, the project was post-posted indefinitely so a lot of the information is still placeholder but I'm still pretty proud of the work I did.
The Delta International Film Festival takes place every year at Delta State University in Cleveland, MS. While I was a student there in 2012 I took on the extra responsibility of designing their branding for that year.
Near the end of last year I had the pleasure of laying out the booklet for the Vest Home Show. This was my second year in a row so I felt like I really had a handle on it this time around. I decided to mix a simple wood pattern with a subtle white/gray marble and a dark blue. It turned out looking pretty classy, if I do say so myself.
During my time in graduate school we were tasked with creating an ad campaign for a social issue. At the time it was nearing the one year anniversary of a friend of mine's suicide so I decided to take on the heavy subject of suicide prevention.
For the past 6 years or so I've been on and off writing a musical. At some point I decided to make it a large multi-media project and create a comic book-companion to go with the music for whenever I got it all done. This is the first of three issues of that comic book. Enjoy!
As a graduate component to my History of Graphic Design class I designed a series of ads for lightbulbs resembling different eras of marketing and design.
I did a series of informative posters in the study of retro schoolhouse info-poster in order to address cyber bullying. Not only is cyber bullying just as bad as regular bullying in the right context it also has a very strange effect on the one doing the bullying...
While studying modernism and post-modernism I was tasked with creating posters that exemplified all of the things we were studying at the time.
