The Beer Diaries

For 3 months in 2013 I got to work a dream contract for The Beer Diaries internet TV series covering craft beer. I got to use my various skills in illustration, design and animation, and it was awesome.

Here is a lower third title I designed and animated. The director wanted the appearance that the subject’s name was being quickly spraypainted through a stencil, with a slowly-rotating grid globe within the show’s logo.

Here are some designs I did for the Brewery Explorer app:

Here are some flash modules I made while working on the Phillip Morris site for Razorfish.

Room Creator for Mod Green Pod


As part of a complete site design, Room Creator was an interactive Flash component I designed to allow my client’s customers to drag textile design swatches to parts of an imaginary room.

The Room Creator was wildly successful and drove sales for Mod Green Pod higher than ever before.

The next three images illustrate the drag-and-drop functionality mentioned above.

I was one of a small team of artists who came up with the visual direction for the redesign of Star Wars: The Old Republic’s website, swtor.com. Our goal was a more open, cinematic, and dramatic feel, that was also more on-brand with the intellectual property. I was mainly responsible for the look and feel of the navigation. I also worked with User Experience experts to insure the clarity and ease of task flow on every page.

I designed a drag-and-drop interface for Kendra Scott’s website that would allow her site visitors to play, experiment, create, and then purchase their own unique jewelry items. I hired my fellow freelancer Brian Douglas to program the ActionScript functionality, and we invented a flash-based jewelry customizer that could save, share, and purchase custom stone configurations. The site is now built in HTML5.

These are comps for a mobile app I created for Bioware, based on their need for their customers to have a way to play more passive aspects of their popular MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic on a mobile phone. The images below illustrate the user login, character and server selection process. The aesthetic matches that of the game UI.
