Logos are extremely important to a company and its brand. I've taken the time to fully understand my client, their company and/or product(s), their targeted and/or actual demographic, their likes/dislikes, needs/wants, etc., and have come up with the best possible solution for a logo/icon that represents the clear design and messaging. It's not about what I want, it's about what the client wants/needs for their company and/or product(s). Here are some examples of logos that I've created.
Icon: Phone App
Icons at multiple sizes were created for a field application used by construction professionals.
This logo was created for a gamer who streams live online.

Logo: Cloud Software Platform
Corporate logo for cloud software platform.
Logo: Corporate Identity

Corporate branding must remain consistent. Elements of the design, style of writing, and the vision all must follow a set of rules and guidelines. A certain set of colors, the way products are spelled out and used within text, logos, layouts, and so on must match visually across all advertisements, collateral, the website and its individual pages, stationery, verbiage internally to fellow employees and externally to clients, and so on. Here are some examples of corporate pieces I have created, keeping brand in tact.
Marketing brochures used as handouts to leads, prospects, and clients. Generic and individual product level brochures are included.
Photography is taken and edited, then placed into advertisement layouts. In addition, testimonial videos are recorded and quotes are written for use on the corporate website.
Doodle Monsters is a personal side project. Just as most artists, I've filled up paper, notebooks, folders, trapper keepers, shoes, shirts, skin, and basically any drawable surface with doodles. As an adult, I find myself doodling often as a creative release. I picked the 'monster' theme because there are no rules with drawing monsters, the possibilities are endless. Three eyes. No eyes. Big floppy ears. Bowties & top hats. Anything is possible.
Doodle Monster: Missing Shoe
Doodle Monster: Pinkie
Doodle Monster: Elvis Lip
Doodle Monster: Mister
Shirts are, by far, the most complex 'canvases' to design on. There's a lot to consider: what color is the shirt, how many ink colors can I use in the design and still remain within budget, what's the budget or cost and is it reasonable, which print shop should I pick, will the shirts be compressed, will people like the design well enough to wear the shirt in public or will this be their bedtime/cleaning shirt, are the shirts thin/thick, what type of ink, and so on. Even after all that has to be considered, the end result is usually a success. The best part about shirt design is that I'm usually given total creative freedom. Here you will find some of the shirt designs that I've created.
Shirt: 25 Year Anniversary
Corporate shirts designed for their 25 year anniversary.

Shirt: Team Juice Box

Shirt: Softball Team
Shirt designed for a co-ed corporate softball team.
Events are personal and the design for them should be as well. People host events for weddings, babies, birthdays, promotional reasons, charitable causes, and so on. People gather together for a common purpose. The designs that I create for events are well thought out and planned, whether if it's an event I'm co-hosting or an event that someone else is hosting. The design, the content, and the provoked emotion(s) all serve a purpose. I have included some event designs here.
Theme: Vintage Glamour Colors: Cream & Baby Blue Included: Invitation, RSVP Card, Save-the-Date Magnet, Program Card, & Registry/Website Card
Infographics are simply graphics that portray some sort of information (statistical, wayfinding signage, project details, etc.) in an easy to understand image that can be quickly absorbed. Infographics surround us. Signs around downtown Houston show us which direction to travel, and what is located around us. When discussing technology, especially anything having to do with ‘the cloud’, graphics are presented (via handout, presentation, etc.) in order to better explain the technological process to those who are not familiar with the subject. Rather than include a bunch of numbers on a slide or in a report (numbers strongly support the subject matter, but are not easily absorbed), intertwine the numbers with graphics and allow the design to better communicate the information. The combination of both good data and clean graphics results in an improved way to communicate.

Studio work includes art studies based on the use of various mediums and subject matter. I've been in some sort of art class, or multiple art classes, every year of school, from Kindergarten to College. Through the years, my knowledge of other artists and styles have flourished. Now with social media, I follow several types of artists for inspiration: painters, illustrators, tattoo artists, graffiti artists, UI/UX designers, graphic designers, interior designers, crocheters, ice sculptors, and many other artists worldwide. Here are some examples of my studio work.
