Graphic Design

Album Cover Design, Inkspots “If I Didn’t Care”. After hand lettering the text with pen and ink, I set up a scene with custom lighting and photographed the collage, focusing on capturing a retro aesthetic reminiscent of the album’s era.

 
 
 
 

 

 
 
This print piece was created for a fictional magazine about electronic music. The letterhead was created with a typeface I designed in Illustrator. I cut a piece of transparent black acrylic with a laser cutter using my vector art, then hung it up with thread and photographed it in my studio with drum machines and synths in the background. An iPad app version of the magazine was also created, utilizing a low-fi retro aesthetic.
 
 
 
 


Tile mosaic designed during my co-op at Wolf Custom Tile. Intricate vector art was drawn in Illustrator and used to water-jet four colored concrete slabs created by Arya Design. The final piece was displayed in downtown Cincinnati at Music Hall during the 2015 Design Build Cincy show.
 
 

Tri-fold Brochure and Poster Designed for Wolf Custom Tile. The goal of these printed materials was to showcase some of the amazing designs WCT has created over the years while adhering to branding guidelines. In order to show all of the photographs selected, several grids were used, each bearing resemblance to a tile mosaic.

 

Web Design

jelloship

I designed my band’s website, Jelloship.com. It is a single html file that I wrote so that we would have complete control over a custom platform to help in the release of our first album, ÆROCRAWLER, in December 2016.

 
 
motz real estate website

This website was made for a local Cincinnati business, Motz Real Estate during my co-op at Wilker Design. I started shooting and editing photographs of some of their listings and construction projects in the Cincinnati area. I then designed and developed the site with WordPress, performed search engine optimization, and integrated their property listings IDX feed into an easy to use search engine.

 
 
ackermann cpa

Website created for Ackermann CPA during my co-op at Wilker Design. I saw this project from start to finish, writing a lot of CSS and HTML, and creating many of the icons and photos while adhering to the brand guidelines.

I wanted to capture the mood of Kid A by Radiohead visually, with an emphasis on textures and an immersive experience. I decided to juxtaposition nature with technology, as this album has many organic ambient sounds that are combined with intricate electronic sounds. After several iterations and prototypes, I created a final animation in After Effects to show the application flow.

Music Videos

I had the pleasure of helping out with effects/compositing on this music video, working on the lava scenes and some of the desert shots. I did keying, motion tracking, roto and compositing.

 

After I produced Deshaun’s debut album Ice Cream, we filmed this video with a bunch of help from our friends. I did the initial rough edit then handed off to the director, Olivier “Hero” Dressen for the final edit. Shot on RED.
