Lucy.com

Posted in Web on August 10th, 2008 by sketchbookinc

While working at ZCom, I had the pleasure of designing Lucy.com’s new website. At the time I was fresh out of a freelance gig at Nike, so my initial comps for the site looked very “Nike”. Katy Tisch, also an ex Nike designer, was Lucy.com’s creative director, and her and I had very different aesthetics to say the least. I recall being quite frustrated by Katy’s requests and influencing. 

Her design style was something that did not come easy to me. 

Eventually with the help of ZCom CD Chris Miller, we were able to create a compelling website that we were all happy with. After the long process I wrote a rap song and sang it at the lucy.com launch party after a few beers. Katy was quite entertained at my willingness to make fun of myself. lucy

Woodburn Factory Store for Olive

Posted in Flash, Web on August 10th, 2008 by sketchbookinc

My friend Eric Goldstein hired me to design a flash website for the woodburn factory stores after ZCom went out of business. At the time I was fairly new to Flash, but I did do all the scripting and flash work on this site. Included in the functionality was an interactive map of the mall layout. The client was able to update information via text files on this site. woodburn1

Pop Art Branding/Illustrations

Posted in Design, Illustration on August 8th, 2008 by sketchbookinc

Pop Art, the portland web design firm, was at one time a 2 man company in a trashy office in Tigard off of 217. During that time I was working within the ad agency John Pihas and Partners, and was tasked with creating several illustrations for a Pop Art’s corporate brochure. I also designed a new logo for the company, which was not used. 

My idea behind the illustrations was to mimic the style of Jasper Johns, a painter during the pop art movement. Pop Art gave me several words to use, and I painted 8 or so illustrations for the brochure.popart1popart2
