Austin In-Home Fitness is an In-Home Personal Training Service. The company's philosophy is "Sustainable Fitness". Sustainable Fitness is simply teaching people how to create and maintain healthy exercise habits. With this in mind, I set out to create a logo that embodied this philosophy. We eventually arrived at the impossible triangle. This symbolism represents a never ending commitment to fitness in the visual three dimensional form that continues without an end. In addition, triangles (pyramids) are symbols of power and stability. I chose a strong san-serif typeface to add a sense of building a strong foundation.

The premise of this spot was the old Ford F-150 would turn into the new F-150 Chrome Edition. This spot played heavily off of the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind. My role was to recreate certain objects from the footage into 3D objects that would turn into chrome. The most challenging part was creating the 3D objects and animating them so they moved seamlessly with the footage.

Dr Pepper's Unmistakable Ride campaign was an event that would give away a tricked out, Dr Pepper-themed, Lowrider. The brief was to create a logo for the event that embodied the Lowrider Culture in conjunction with Dr Pepper branding. Starting from the bottom and moving up are the initial designs to the final design, respectively. My findings during the research phase of the project were: graffiti, tagging letter forms, heavy use of script typefaces, tattoos, custom car paint jobs and accessories. The first design I really pushed all of these elements. The client felt that the first design was in favor of the Lowrider Culture. In the end, I was able to bring back the Dr. Pepper branding so we had a nice mix of the two design aesthetics.

Dr Pepper held a custom car give-a-way contest called, "Dr Pepper's Unmistakable Ride." We started out with the Event Logo Design and Lowrider Illustration. By using these two elements as the basis of the core design, I created the look and feel for the Unmistakable Ride Campaign. This campaign spanned multiple markets and multiple marketing pieces.

This spot was a broadcast commercial to showcase the Ford vehicles for the Texas Sales Event. My role on this project was 3D Artist. I prepped, shaded and textured all of the Ford vehicles: Trucks, SUVs, and Cars. I was also responsible for laying out all of the typography on the rotating panels.

Mango Mattress is a fascinating mattress because of its great quality and its revolutionary packaging. The mattress ships in a box/ It unrolls and expands into a full-size mattress in various sizes. My task was to illustrate this revolutionary process, so that consumers could wrap their heads around the new concept of a "mattress in-a-box." I used a mix of 3D and 2D illustration techniques to achieve the goal.

Dr Pepper needed a car illustration for an event they were holding called, Dr Pepper's Unmistakable Ride. The car illustration needed to have a traditional, airbrush style that would emulate street art, yet pushing realism. The only thing I knew about the car design was the make, model and basic color. The illustration needed to happen before actual work had started on the cars they were giving away. I knew what types of things would be tricked out, but I didn't have specifics. I had to run with things like the pinstriping, paint job, rims, etc.

The O-arm® Surgical Imaging System is a multi-dimensional surgical imaging platform that is optimized for use in spine, orthopedic, and trauma-related surgeries. It provides real-time, intra-operative imaging of a patient's anatomy with high quality images and a large field-of-view in both two and three dimensions. I was tasked to create illustrations for marketing materials. The great thing about a 3D render of a product is the flexibility of rendering out an product in any setting, with any lighting and at any angle.

This was a commercial spot for AT&T's Mother's Day promotions. The idea for the spot was to have flowers with cell phone aesthetics and design elements blooming with complete cell phones. I studied time lapse footage of real worlds plants and flowers growing and blooming. In the end, we nailed the feeling of blooming plant life. My role was a 3D Animator in a team of Modelers, Animators and Texture Artists. I animated the flowers opening using Autodesk 3D Max.
