In honor of SuperBowl 50, amazing craft beer illustrator and designer Josh Emrich, invited me to a design challenge. The plan was simple. Each of us would draft a team of 6 from our home cities competing (Panthers v. Broncos) in the SuperBowl and each team would design a custom 6 pack. both Charlotte and Denver are huge Craft Beer markets and I was proud to draft some of my most talented friends from the Carolinas. Joey Ellis, J.Fletcher, Zach Shuta, and Ryan Simpson joined myself in the challenge (Jason Latour had to drop out due to an illness). So proud of what these guys came up with. You can vote here at designbrawl.com for your favorite. Thanks again to Josh for coming up with the idea and putting it all together.
I worked with the Parse team to create a full suite of illustrations for their recent launch. We created large hero illustrations as well as a set of building blocks for the team to work with and a full set of brand and illustration consistent icons. Thanks to the Parse team!

I was brought in by Shea Blackston (Charlotte NC Brand/marketing consultant) as part of a team to rebrand The Resource out of Winston Salem. I headed up the Identity portion of the rebrand, alongside talented folks working on the web and video portions of the project. The Resource is a staffing agency with a very unique and effective method. The goal was to make sure the new brand expressed the human focused spirit of the company. Below is the final identity excerpted from the brand standards as well as finished brand presentation documents.
I had the pleasure of creating an illustration alongside a group of talented artists and designers to benefit the Target House. The proceeds from all the sales of prints will go to buy art supplies. Each print is limited to a quantity of 50, so support the cause while you can. Purchase here.
I just completed some illustrations for the RSM brand rollout, led by Charlotte agency, Luquire George Andrews. The illustrations needed to express the ideas of global connection and overcoming logistic obstacles in a style consistent with the new RSM brand guidelines. They were to be produced at a variety of scales, so they needed to work in the context of a print ad, all the way up to super graphics in the airport. They have started to appear in the Charlotte International airport, so keep an eye out if you're a frequent flyer. Thanks to Jon Cain and the team for bringing me in on this one.
