DIGITAL MANIPULATION

While at Jaguar Land Rover, working on the IVI system for future vehicles sometimes entailed creating videos and imagery for presentations to excite different groups to get behind ideas. This was an image I created capturing the vibrancy and excitement of one of the numerous iterations presented.

VIDEO WALL PROJECTIONS

Twenty-five, 56″ big screen tv’s form a video wall in the Jaguar Land Rover reception area. Opposite is a large sheet of plexi, about 8 x 16 feet, hanging from the ceiling. These various videos were created both from pure graphics, and edited historical and advertising footage which were designed to be projected from the tv’s as well as projected onto the plexi.

EMPLOYEE 401K INFO SITE

When Facebook announced they were going to go public, there was a massive scram to California by many companies pitching their woo to secure the retirement plans for its employees. Schwab went with full force. We actually had this site partially as a pitch/spec and partially ready-to-go to really hit the ground running to amplify the service Schwab provides.

INVASIVE PLANT POSTERS

Ponds and rivers are being depleated of water due to various invasive species of plants transported by boat/trailer, much of time unknown. These posters were created to help people identify these three species for reporting in the effort to help eradicate the spreading. They were posted in bait shops, licensing agencies and various local shops.

BALLET OKLAHOMA POSTER

It’s almost become a tradition to submit an idea for the production of Dracula. As I try to incorporate ideas with typography at any given juncture, the idea of flipping the letter “A” for fangs came to me. It was an easy rational to switch to “V” as the shapes of the two letters completed the imagery as well as the actual word. No crossbars needed.

SCRAP HEAP EVENT POSTER

Jaguar Land Rover was to sponsor an event at the International Car Show in Portland, OR and the idea to get kids building something that moved wasn’t too much of a stretch.

The fun part of course was that they could only use scraps of paper, cardboard, tape and the like. Kids don’t really have limited imaginations and so the challenge was really on us to pick the most amazing model.

ANIMATED PITCH VIDEO

Nouvola provides solid unit testing for software, especially HTTP requests. Instead of a typical, nerdy ‘white paper-esque’ video, we pitched the idea of an explainer video. The story shows a new company and their developers launching a new site, NOT using Nouvola and crashing. Then, they implement Nouvola and lo and behold, they handle even more requests on launch and the day is saved. See the video here.

WINDOW CLINGS

The idea of world athletes eating possibly the worse thing one can when in training wasn’t lost on anyone. But then again, most of us just watch all the world athletes on television so why not with a morning snack?

VARIOUS STORY BOARDS: UX STORIES

Jaguar Land Rover opened an Incubator Program for a short time.

One of the key deliverables for any company is a Proof Of Concept video. After an idea and story is put together, a story board, or as I like to call them, an illustrated shot list is created to guide shooting. This approach keeps a sense of order without the strict sense of the actual framing should an environment, location or even story point change at the last minute.

WIRE FRAMES

These wires for an existing mobile and desktop site for Workfrom were produced to provide alternate thinking and ideas for new features to be added. The strong style follows the “monochrome is the clearest choice” for clarity and understanding, put forward by the site uxmovement.com

FUNDRAISER MAILER

College isn’t cheap…neither is actually building one. The University of Texas at Tyler wanted to expand and needed to appeal to a board of benefactors to raise the necessary funds. Through a local agency in Tyler, Texas the concept of Cultivating Dreams was given to me to design. This brochure was delivered along with an actual seedling to key members during a special dinner.

EVENT POSTER

Every year around November, the National Maritime Research Istitute holds a lecture on the activities and research they are concentrating on. (Held alternately in eastern and western Japan). This was a promo poster for that event. All copy was provided in Japanese.
