Dave Stewart – LP & Single
Album design for Dave Stewart’s 2013 album “Lucky Numbers” + “Every Single Night” single art.
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.
“Treatments” are visual and creative briefs submitted by directors to pitch for commercial jobs. I’ve worked with several production agencies on numerous treatment designs for Adidas, McDonalds, Mitsubishi and more. For treatment work, I am exclusively represented by TellAVision Agency
“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.
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.
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.
