Grease Bus When I was a child like many other boys I was very into fighter planes. As part of my stay with the Nike Action Sports brand design team I was asked to design the vehicle skin for a bus modeled after a WWII era fighter plane. The bus needed to use both the Nike Snowboarding branding and the visual language of planes from the era. This was to tie in with the Fall 2012 Danny Kass quick strike boot. The mouth from the boot had to be re-illustrated [...]

Project London This project started as an ask from a colleague to create a logo for her cycling team. At the time I had no idea I would be designing the logo for a team aiming for the Olympics.

After speaking with her and getting a feel for her business, as well as some of the traditional aspects that where important in the company’s image, I set to work researching Moroccan Henna, mosaics, and textiles.

Taking the DIY hand crafted nature of his work a step further in this design, I added the integrated sewing kit to the design of the card.

To this end I tried to keep a very minimal clean approach that incorporated some of the visual language of factory service manuals. The logo was a simple type treatment with a rectangular lockup, and the cans themselves where a removable tab design that was chosen to give a retro-industrial feel, as well as to resemble cans used for [...]
