Fork & Cork Classic event branding
Event name • Logo design • Advertising concept • Postcard • Poster
The Foodbank approached me to help them brand a new event.
The 'Culinary Art' advertising concept reinterprets famous pieces of abstract art with food. This first piece is a nod to British artist Damien Hirst and his Dot Paintings.
Wonder – brand launch ad
Love is the underlying motivation for purchasing as well as giving. It also presents a neat way to showcase some of Wonder's beautiful things.

22nd Cresta Int'l Advertising Awards – Annual Identity
Each year since 2003, I've been commissioned by the Cresta International Advertising Awards to design their annual 'Call for Entries' identity.
This year, I took their awards statue which is in the shape of an S with a C embedded in the top half and turned it into a magnet to express 'Call for Entries' and also the underlying reason agencies and creatives alike enter creative competitions – to attract clients and creative talent (advertising agencies).

AIGA Santa Barbara – Save the Date publication
This is a 'Save the Date' accordian fold, credit-card size publication for the Santa Barbara Chapter of the AIGA. On one side it lists three upcoming events to close the year, and on the other a complete timeline of all the events (past and future) planned for 2013, with an invitation to become a member.
AIGA 100 Chair Project
To mark AIGA's Centennial, 67 chapters across the nation were invited to design the skin of a chair to honor the very first meeting back in 1914 when members were asked to bring or purchase their own Windsor chairs.
Santa Barbara's entry was a collaborative effort. I came up with the basic idea of inviting members to send in alternative uses for a chair (a classic creativity test) and designed the chair skin, Sarah Schumacher provided the idea of using the outline of a chair to lay the type, Tracy Sherwood suggested we find out which chair was used in 1914 (Windsor) and Patty Driskel and the rest of the Santa Barbara Board provided input.
The chair is currently in the Facing Forward exhibition at AIGA's headquarters in NYC. It will later be return to the chapter to be auctioned off.
