Mint Thing Label Design

I developed this label for TōV Coffee & Tea located in Portland Oregon. TōV is super unique in that they serve Egyptian style coffee from a red double decker bus. They reached out to me to create a label for their top selling cold brew coffee called Mint Thing. The goal was to create a unique and fun label that would capture TōV Coffees quirky personality and stand out on the shelf as a unique product.

Carson O’Brien Custom Longboard

This project was done for a friend of mine, who is an avid long-boarder. In a conversation I mentioned that if he was ever interested I would love to try my hand at painting on a longboard, it is something I hadn't done yet but always wanted to do. He brought a board in the next day. When considering what the subject matter of the board should be I remembered that this friend had dressed up as a flamingo for Halloween, Pink tights and all. It wasn't to much more of a leap to incorporate some more personality into the board. 

 

Angry Rain Packaging Design & Illustrations

I developed this packaging and flavor concept with a premium soda brand in mind. The illustration, lettering, and colors where chosen specifically so that the packaging would stand out and call attention to itself on shelves. Increasingly, modern packaging is  becoming typographic heavy, favoring traditional Swiss styles, which I feel like takes away from the personality of the products. This concept was developed to showcase how we can still capture a products essence while maintaining bold and playful elements that consumers enjoy.

Chasing fluffy pink unicorns

Ghost Runners Brewery released a new seasonal beer called Chasing Fluffy Pink Unicorns in 2017. They approached me to create some custom artwork for them to use for t-shirts, posters, hats, and a possible label. They wanted to mimic the illustration style of the cartoon My Little Pony. I did a couple rough concept sketches and got to work. I used Kyle T Websters Nupastel photoshop brushes. The pastel style helped defined the airy and fluffy feeling we where going for on this illustration.
