Lady Gaga USB

In 2009 I was commissioned to design a character that would be used to create a mold for a Lady Gaga USB. The final product is a fully functioning drive that can be inserted into your laptop or computer to access music, images and digital extras. A year later, we created a second character based off the album cover for “The Fame Monster” and yet another in 2011 for her “Born This Way” release.

My first job out of college was with Universal Music Group in NYC as a content collector archiving art assets. I later worked my way up to Senior Graphics Manager and started designing international album singles in 2005. When I left Universal in 2010 and started freelancing, Interscope Records was my first client and I continue to work on album, single and merchandising designs for them.

More LoveDesign, Logos, Music More Love Logo

More Love

“More Love” is a musical adventure and collaboration between Dave Stewart and Joss Stone. When I was first approached to create this logo, the working title was “Sonic Boom,” but the name was later changed. The client requested a logo that would embody the quirky, unexpected nature of the event, with strong references to festivals of the 60′s and 70′s.

DoodleFactory

I love drawing strange characters and silly monsters. When I had a desk job, I doodled all the time and posted my meeting doodles online, which led to an unexpected side-job as a rubber stamp designer. I trademarked the “DoodleFactory¬ģ” name for my stamps which are sold worldwide through StarvingArtistamps.com I can’t even begin to showcase every one of my stamps, but here is a sampling, including some of my favorite customer creations courtesy of Nina √Öslund and Eva Andr√©n.

Il Volo – Character Design

I worked on the International Christmas album for the young Italian trio, Il Volo and thought Piero, Ignazio, and Gianluca would make great little characters. I mocked up an illustrated cover, (which was not used), though the character designs will be seen on future merchandising products.

Smosh Characters

This was by far my favorite show design to work on for the Smosh Games suite. I got to use some drawing skills and make cartoon/bitmap versions of Ian and Anthony, which were used again on their “Behind The Scenes” show that launched in Dec 2013.
