Recently, I was asked by Shake Shack to be apart of there STL Location opening and Pop up. For this project, I wanted to create something that's playful and eye-catching, but also captures the neighborhoods of St. Louis and the impact Shake Shack will have on the city. The design builds on the excitement and energy surrounding this new store for such an iconic brand. St. Louis is the perfect place for expansion, welcoming Shake Shack with open arms, as it embraces the new restaurant in the illustration.
In collaboration with Biklops, I was callanged create visuals and concepts for

Recently I was asked by Budweiser and the MLB to create a can design that represents The Cardinals, St. louis and Budweiser. This will be sold in stores and featured as a product you can buy at the Cardinals ball park. I experimented with several designs to find the best one to stand out as a prominent feature on the can and can work with a limited color pallet. It has been a huge honor to represent STL as a Designer / illustrator and someone who loves going to the games.

For this project, I was given the task of bringing a fresh face to an older men’s brand. With concepting, strategy and a lot of one-on-one with the client, I was able to deliver a bold, finished piece.

ALL SHOULD BE MEMORABLE
As a maker, I really enjoy making things that are fun. That is why I chose to completely re-brand the company Cookie Cutters (old name). Cookie Cutters is a children’s haircut franchise that entertains children while giving them a great haircut. I already felt like this was an amazing company, they just needed re-branding to make them more visible and less outdated. I wanted to combine 50’s nostalgia with lovable monsters to deliver a style that would appeal to the children’s market.
Choose an existing company with existing branding identity and reposition it to the right market through print, digital, and advertising medias.
This past semester I was given the task of branding a Guacamole Competition at an Adverting Design Agency called Summerfield Advertising. What started with a few funny sketches created a snow ball effect off new ideas and deliverable for a memorable event. I wanted to create a color pallet that was fun and portrayed the festive colors of Cinco De Mayo. This is probably one of the most fun and laid back projects I've worked on. I feel like most of us need those every once in a wile.
OBJECTIVE: Create promotional material that creates an overall theme and brand for a guacamole judging event.
