ASH Industries T shirt series
These five shirt designs are part of a series of rewards and gifts for both employees and clients working for ASH Industries. Each design is meant to express a game well played or a race well won.

Tractor Supply Christmas gift cards
These illustrations were created for Tractor Supply’s new Christmas Season line of gift cards. The simple vector style with rustic textures was used to reflect the illustration style of their branding while adding a warm Christmas season tone. All of these designs are made to be Christmas themed while still tailored to the Tractor Supply brand and customer base. The color palette and illustration style is simple to be readable when scaled down to fit gift card sizing.
Alien movie campaign
This re-imagined Alien poster was created using digital painting. This poster is meant to reflect the relationship seen between Alien’s lead, Ellen Ripley, and our alien throughout the series. The poster is split into two sections with two contrasting color palettes. The top half depicts Ellen Ripley in the hibernation pods seen throughout the series. The bottom half of the poster depicts the alien xenomorph walking throughout the once-peaceful ship. The poster, popcorn bucket, souvenir cup, and stickers are all part of a re-release campaign to bring awareness and new interest into the sci-fy series.

Design for the Jefferson Baptist College for use on shirts, mailouts, advertisements, and stickers. Hand lettered traditionally then edited and placed in adobe Illustrator.
In this project, I was required to create a toy then brand the toy and distributer company. Whittle Works is a beginners guide to whittling. This kit is complete with whittling molds, carving tools, a guidebook, and a next step book. The Whittle Works forms are rubber-encased action figures. Each red figure has a layer of orange rubber, than yellow, green, and the outer layer is blue. This color-coded casing is designed to teach children to carve. As the colors change they have to slow down and take greater caution until they reach the red center. The resulting shape is an action figure they can play with.

Bigelow Perfect Peach Tea Packaging
In order to reach a younger audience and stand out next to competing brands, I decided to re-design the tea box I use nearly every day.

The minimal visual illustration and constrained color choices were chosen to stand out from the normally over-designed packages in any grocery store. I used Adobe illustrator and indesign to complete these designs.
