An animated music video collaboration with my brother Preston. Working with him I helped design the character, storyboards & develop a short story. This was a long process but I also worked with him by digital painting frame by frame in photoshop each scene. Be sure to check out Beth's music & scope my brothers animation and motion graphics work
I was fortunate enough this year to take part in helping make this video. My specific design role in this project was the development of typography through the whole video. I ended up drawing out the lyrics, scanning and adjusting them in photoshop. In some of the scenes I had to render the type to fit inside of characters posing and adjust for creative control.

As a student at SIUE I was tasked with a project to rebrand an already existing company. My initial thought was to find a place I enjoy going in St. Louis. The craft beer/restaurant scene in Saint Louis is wonderful and The Boathouse in Forest Park is one of my favorite places to visit.
This exercise was to establish a logo, and branding guide for them.
At the end of last year the St. Louis Egotist asked some of the most respected creative visionaries in St. Louis to create a piece, entitled “What I Learned This Year.” The result was an invaluable onslaught of experience, vision and “Great thinking from St. Louis best thinkers."
So, when the brightest crayons in the St. Louis box take time to share their mistakes, triumphs and random learnings about dogs who eat their own poop... you bet your creative asses we listened. Looking to shamelessly leech every drop of knowledge, we scoured every article and came to the realization, “There is some seriously good shit here.” So we took a few of our favorite (visually agreeable) quotes and put them together in a piece that even an industry full of adults with ADHD can sit through.
