Bottle up the mood and magic of your brand/project and then sprinkle it across all kinds of assets. Usually involves L&F development and an assets pack . Brief is often undefined. Production can be negotiated on-the-fly.

Extend the shelf life of a project or engage folks in the here-and-now. Make your client give a damn.  These richly designed deliverables act as visual mnemonics to sum up or guide teams through complex strategy work. Could involve printed ephemera, illustration, custom icon sets, or select photography- dependent on budget.  

Telling stories for funky founder brands, purposeful activists and focused Fortune 500’s.  Sometimes because they asked me... sometimes because it’s something I believe in.

Symbols Work

My studio practice is rooted largely in analog production techniques and table-top investigations of highly distilled symbolic objects. It is powered by Jung’s provocation that simple images carry complex meaning that will always exceed language. As a non-digital native heading into the age of “seamlessness” I  carved out this space to value raw over slick.  Leaning towards this lo-fi sentiment helps me get ideas out quick, enjoy the ride, and welcome all the idiocincracies of what it means to be a body (and psyche) in world- with all it’s glory, warmth, destruction, imperfection, and fertility.
