Æ | CREATIVE DIRECTOR

I've always been fiercely multidisciplinary. Never satisfied with one medium, one approach, or one style, I thrive on expressing creativity across disciplines, and leading others through the process. From the focus and solitude of writing, to the rich collaboration and management of filmmaking, I have spent my career developing and executing a refined vision no matter what the ultimate form or scale. On this page, I've pulled together some sample work that reflects my diverse creative background and leadership.

 
 

Brand Guides

I developed these brand guides myself after a discovery phase with each client in which I evaluated their mission, vision, and values. I then crafted the identity usage guidelines, brand elements, typography families, color palettes, and wrote all descriptive copy.

Identities

I created these logos to serve as the purest, most distinct expression of each brand. This selection covers a range of industries. Click each thumbnail for a full view.

 
 

Film & Video

In some ways the ultimate high-stress creative managerial challenge, I directed each of these film and video projects, beginning at concept and taking them through post-production to completion. I also wrote, produced, and edited in several cases. The first video is my reel, a montage of many projects. Watch fullscreen!

 
 
 

UI / UX + Copywriting

I architected and designed these web and mobile interfaces, and in some cases managed the IA process as well. I also wrote most of the custom copy.

 
 

Print etc.

I crafted this selection of print pieces, including documents, restaurant menus, business cards, posters, and icons.
