Branding: By utilizing design and strategy, the elusive essence of a company or product is brought to life.
Verb Products is a full line of hair care consumer packaged goods born in Austin. I created the brand package, including logo, typeface selections, product naming nomenclature, and the packaging look & feel. Since 2011, Verb has exploded into a popular product line, carried at Sephora, Urban Outfitters, and more. Since day one, Verb was brand-ready for the international stage.

Warby Parker: Legacy West
Interior mural design for Warby Parker's retail location at Legacy West in Plano, Texas. My design took cues from vintage field guides and the rich history of Plano to create a whimsical interpretation of the WP brand.

🏆 Shortlisted for2018 Commarts Design Annual
Punch, a weekly standup comedy show, is curated by the award-winning Austin comedian Matt Bearden. The branding explores themes associated with comedy and standup, interpreted through motifs of American cults and secret societies. Ultimately, the illustrations reflect the creative process and the psyche of comedians (and creatives) at large.

Live Nation: Festival Passport
Live Nation's Festival Passport gives purchasers access to over 100 participating music festivals around the globe. I developed the brand and visual identity, as well as strategic positioning and logistics.

KUTX Brand Launch
Launched in 2012, KUTX (98.9 fm) is the very, very excellent all-music sister station to Austin’s longtime National Public Radio affiliate, KUT (90.5). Even though the KUT logo was adapted for KUTX at the time of their debut, they still had no “visual branding” – no imagery or expression that was unique to KUTX, which is friendly, unique, reliable and very "Austin".
Austin Facial Hair Club
Born out of Misprint Magazine's wildly popular Beard & Moustache Competition (of which I am a co-founder of), an entire Austin community of facial hair enthusiasts banded together to form their own movement. The "skull beard" motif I created has become the iconic representation of the modern facial hair club and facial hair competition.
