A self-initiated project stemming from an EFDM lettering sketch originally inked with black pen and marker in a Moleskine journal (July 2012). This particular sketch was selected for further development & exploration because its softened diamond-like perimeter geometry lent itself well to informing the possibility of an extended grid system beyond for patterning. A bold 4-color scheme was selected, composed of 253 individual shards following three basic rules for composing/defining internal shard content. Adherence to these rules helps camouflage the EFDM lettering in & amongst the 24 primary shard regions.

As with each of the previous two Possi Impossi releases, an emblem graphic featuring the P & I and a custom lettering element serve as the foundation from which all album art is conceived and ultimately composed. By limiting the composition palette to three colors (black, gray, orange), the subtle interplay of their geometry is strengthened and distinguished by the white space filtering within. The 5 minute single ‘Choo-Choo Bobby Woo Furgtalson’ marks Possi Impossi’s third release and is the first in a number of forthcoming digital only singles. Track mastered by TWERK.

LOG put out an open call for designers to compose a postcard image with a supplemental 100 word maximum cover story for their non-thematic 18th issue. The transient, experience-by-mail nature of a postcard serves as a sort of anti-image display medium in a profession (of architecture) whose aim is to successfully seduce & persuade agency, client, & public opinion of a design proposal via imagery. A design produced by the mind should hold greater worth than the outward appearance of an individual. As the entry suggests, each letter (with exception of the bowtie ‘I’) is designed as a specific pattern for use as a paper template for the cutting out and assembling of a larger garment – perhaps even a suit?

Alex Bec and Will Hudson, directors of the online design community and print magazine It's Nice That posed a question as part of their If You Could print design series. The question you ask? If you could do anything tomorrow, what would it be? My response you ask? RELAX! Entries were to be designed as a double page spread in the format of a diary, while still allowing for each page to be used for its intended function. 52 entries were chosen (mine was not) -- one unique design each spread, for each week of the year.

SHIFT, an international creative culture focused online magazine based in Japan, called upon designers to design their own version of the SHIFT logo and logo mark. 485 entries were submitted from 40 different countries. One winner & 19 excellent works were selected. Thus, a 0.2% chance of claiming the top prize. Neither of the entries I submitted placed. 100+ freehand sketches were done on various paper stocks & in various ink types and colors. Out of those 100, two versions would ultimately shape the final type-based mark and a complimentary logo-based mark originating from the 'S' lettering geometry. A red circular disk functions as a crossbar to the H. This is a symbolic homage paid to Japan's national flag; the red disk represents the sun.

SHIFT, an international creative culture focused online magazine based in Japan, have called upon artists and designers every year since 2003 to create a piece for their calendar competition. 1267 entries were submitted from 49 different countries, but only 12 works of art were chosen for inclusion into the printed calendar, with one image chosen for each month of the year. My entry was not selected. Coming from an architectural background, it was nice to freely explore 3D object creation of non-building form.

A flexible identity system was developed for the A.X.I.A.L.™ brand tee shirt clothing line. It is the acronym for A X(10) Is Always Limiting™. A.X.I.A.L.™ is dedicated to creating inspiring graphic tees for those just as passionate in their own life pursuits and adventures.

While the flagship of the brand is anchored by a polygonal wireframe-like trademark, alternate, more playful & animate versions emerge from the voided framework thereby metaphorically eluding to and suggestive of an individual's empowering drive to inspire others by their own actions, adventures, or pursuits.

Sometimes you just have to be there to know what it's like. The double-bass kick pulsating through your body. Dualing guitars. Screeching vocals. Singers in a not-so-secret, on stage love affair with the microphone while fans & their loved ones look on in pure delight. Band members running around on stage as if they were being chased by their own worst enemy. Sometimes you just need a break between sets, to step outside and make sure your head is still attached. Because as the night goes on, it's likely to get even heavier.

Bands photographed include:
Augustine / Immortal Dominion / Lost Point / Polands Mighty Cavalry / Stabbed In The Face / Until We Wake

Gee golly folks, nothing more to see this far over here.
