The Executive is Beats by Dre's high end line of headphones aimed towards the more mature consumer. These advertorials, which ran in magazines such as GQ, Travel+Leisure & Robb Report, directed the readers to the exclusive sign up & product details.
Sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll was the creative brief for the young and loud snowboard brand. To stay true to their freestyler fan base, the site focused on snowboarding first, and selling products after ...which is working out just fine.
As trend setters in snowboard fashion, Special-Blend focused on translating their fashion-forward style to the site's design & function. With a minimalistic approach from the look book to the outfit builder, the site was sure to attract the fashionistas even outside the slopes.
"Everything has a purpose." What sets Foursquare apart from the other in-your-face, loud, graphic-explosion snowboarding brands is its focus on the basics - no fancy shmanciness, no frills. And the very minimal, practical, and techie site did exactly that.

Premiere is South Coast Plaza's monthly interactive guide to fashion, food, events & promotions. With fashionistas as their target audience, providing direction for this monthly production was a quite a challenge ...but I drop kicked the shit out of it anyways.
Working with the existing structural design, this elegant yet intricate flash based site had quarterly makeovers throughout the year. Keeping in mind all the moving parts that go along with the site such as the monthly Premiere & Traveler site, the ideal photography & color scheme was key for each season for the whole to be greater than the sum of its parts.
The task was simple, to match charlotterusse.com with minimal approach and do it under 2 hours. POW …a corporate single page site was born.

Veering away from everything flash, Mall of America embraced 2010 with an HMTL site.
1 art director + 1 developer + 2 hours + 1 boss with a sense of humor = 1 fun birthday website. There are very few ridiculously talented front-end developers out there, and I've been fortunate enough to work with one for several years. If given the opportunity & free range on a project, I'm pretty sure we can take over the world.
Simple website for a local laser cutting company. (Still a work in progress)
Site redesign for micro-investment company based in Los Angeles. Taking bits & pieces of the old content with new content to create a functioning, cohesive site with a slightly better user experience.
I must have done something great in my past life to be able to have food & design as my everyday reality.

We're far from being millionaires, but we're doing what we love & loving what we do.
With the festival being held blocks from the ocean in the Gaslamp Quarter, the campaign creative direction was a no brainer. Veering away from the complex beach graphics & photography from the previous years, we flooded the streets with simple colors & typography that embodied the essence San Diego.
The complete rebranding of San Diego Film Festival and San Diego Film Foundation was my first taste of hustling & bidding against other established agencies. An experience that I believe every art director should go through.

Another flash-based site for boutique owner and fashion consultant, Tatiana Tomacelli. Don't judge me ...it was 2008.
This simple flash-based site for wedding consultant, Frances Sambilay, was pretty rad back in the day when flash was cool.

From photographers, to restaurants, to film festivals, I've gotten my hands dirty in all kinds of industries when it comes to identity. Here are some of my favorites throughout my short career. Buy me a drink and I'll tell you the stories behind them.
