In the spring of 2018, I was inspired by Julia Salazar’s campaign for NY State Senate that was going on right in my backyard in Brooklyn.
I decided to make some “fan art” for her campaign as a personal project. A couple weeks later, her campaign reached out to me, interested in making the poster official.
The poster can now be seen up around district 18 in Brooklyn.

Nevertheless, She Persisted
I created the design and uploaded it to a t-shirt printing company. I chose Planned Parenthood to receive 100% of the profits. 4 days into the campaign, over $250,000 had been raised. To this day, over half a million dollars has been donated to Planned Parenthood from this campaign.
Human By Design was a large scale collaboration between Square Enix and Courageous, CNN's Branded Content production company, where I worked at the time.
In conjunction with the promotion of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Square Enix approached Courageous to do something special. Before I arrived at Courageous, the plan had developed to facilitate a conference with a similar intent to The Asilomar Conference -- To explore the future of human augmentation, and all the positives and negatives that can come along with it. These are the same core tenets of the Deus Ex series.
I created all motion graphics assets for the conference and the documentary for Amazon Prime.

Joe + Colleen
I had the huge honor to be asked to design the wedding invitation to my good friend Colleen's wedding.
We met over a some beers to discuss the desired direction, look at some references, and find some inspiration.
We decided to go with a clean and classic look, with some small nods to the wedding location of New Orleans.
We also originally had planned to print the J&C mark at the top with gold foil, but in the end went with gold ink and a custom made stamp, which added a nice hand-made touch.
For the marketing lead up to Amazon's The Man In The High Castle, we were asked to create a shareable, informative video that explored the "butterfly effect" moment that could have put an end to Hitler's rise to power before it even happened.
Working with the producers, I suggested that we create something that felt "of the time" -- rather than just using stock footage. I collected references of 1930s and 1940s commercials, animations, and audio, and we got to work.
We had a phenomenal Illustrator -- Bob Al-Greene -- draw up the assets for the piece, and I got to animating and treating the piece to look of the time.
In the end, I was able to narrate the piece as well as get my brother some sound mix work as well!
