Nike Back Your Block - A campaign that recognizes the proud and visible members of urban communities, aiming to inspire teenage contribution.
As Art Director, I created the identity system and all necessary collateral, from signage, to apparel, to window displays, and more. I also directed the photography
(as shot by Boone Speed). The logo uses a blocky typeface that represents equality, proximity, and eludes to a city map of highlighted blocks. These aspects are carried conceptually throughout all pieces.
Island Orientation System - Part of a wayfinding system for Insel Reichenau, an island in Germany. This job was part of my studies at Anhalt University, home of the Bauhaus. Pictograms are based off of the typeface Magda Clean, and were built out into maps and posters.

The George Eastman House & Museum - Created as a project during my studies at RIT, the Eastman House is known for its vast photography and film collection, preservation techniques, as well as the life of George Eastman. The logo's SLR viewfinder reference encompasses the idea of perception, protection, and history. Perception of an individual's experience within a museum; Protection within brackets; and the History of Mr. Eastman himself.

Nike Women's Marathon - The Marathon is 26.2 miles with over 23,000 runners, and over $18 Million raised for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. A 43-foot start structure, a 100-foot tent structure downtown, and a 100-foot finish structure gives a rough idea of its size. Tasks at hand included building out the visual center into graphics of all shapes, sizes, and materials throughout the year, and for the big day.
Nike 5K For Kids - Recently named the 2007 Youth Running Program of the Year by Running USA, this annual event is run throughout 8 different cities nationwide. It hopes to encourage physical fitness in children, and as of February '08, has raised over $1Million for city PE Programs.
I established the Visual Center off the pre-established logo. The intention for design & illustration was to evoke the sense of activity & playfulness the event promotes, as well as elude to the idea of chalk lines & coloring books.
