For the launch of Barbasol's new campaign, we designed a press kit that was sent to influential men in the media. The kit consisted of various print materials, new creative work, T-shirts, and a can of Barbasol. We packaged everything in repurposed, screen printed ammo cans, and designed a hand-bound book mounted on a wooden board. All pieces were proudly designed and crafted in-house with sore hands. *Featured in Graphis Design Annual 2014.

This coffee table was created from recycled deck wood that was salvaged from the local Habitat for Humanity. Set on vintage-style casters, this mobile table also acts as a storage box for reading materials and other oddities. The door is mounted with leather straps, and hinges that were inset with the use of an old chisel. Circular magnets were also inset, holding the door shut while not in use. Built for Gerren and Morgana Lamson.
Strix Digital is a photo-retouching and post-production company based in Austin, Texas. When they came to me to work on their branding, they wanted to incorporate a Strix owl, which is a genus of owls with ties to ancient Greek mythology. Using this as a visual direction, I designed a logo and series of icons help give them an identity. These are talented folks, check out their work here.
