TripActions

I developed illustrations for 19 cities around the world to be used for murals in themed conference rooms around the TripActions office — perfect for when you need to circle back with Carmen Sandiego.

Bellewood Farms

My long-time pal Seth and I pear-ed up on this branding project, and I apple-solutely loved the results. We developed an a-peel-ing illustration style to pair with the ~core~ branding elements.

Envoy

As part of Envoy's broader brand overhaul, we developed several feature illustration scenes — as well as an extensive library that the team could pull from and piece together themselves. It was just like The Sims, except without my mom yelling at me for hogging the dial-up.

Hawking Bird

Hawking Bird is a casual Thai restaurant in Oakland's Temescal neighborhood. We developed a branding system that injects fun and flavor into everything from paint colors to takeout menus. More like hauke couture amirite?

Posters For Parks

I love parks, and gosh darnit I'm not afraid to say it!! Each fall since moving to Minneapolis, I've participated in this annual fundraising show that helps keep our parks beautiful and accessible for all.

Help Scout

You can't help or scout if nobody notices you! Over several years, I created a bunch of illustrations for the Help Scout blog to attract eyeballs and future customers.

Google

Do you know what HSTS preloading is? SSL certificates? I sure as heck don't! But it's important, so Google tasked our team with creating a unique, immersive web experience to explain a dry subject.

Lumosity

I worked at Lumosity for 3 years on just about everything — from end-to-end product design to marketing campaigns — carrying out our mission to help kids who can't read good people feel more confident in their cognitive abilities. Here are a few broad highlights!

Lil' Military

The lovely team at RP Kids reached out to me to illustrate their book series about the different military branches, aimed towards teaching young kids in military families what their loved ones do.

Steamies

Look, I'm not saying hens can drive tractors or fly rocket ships, but I'm also not not saying that. I worked with the team at Olio to expand their packaging direction to a variety of flavors (and stratospheres).

vitaminwater

Over the years, vitaminwater's once-iconic packaging had become cluttered and uninspired. We developed a packaging evolution that reimagined what has always made the brand special, with bright bold colors and witty one-liners (a few of which I wrote!).

10x

Each year, a few of my friends brought together a group of creative folks to reimagine the artwork of their favorite new albums of the year. I got to participate for 3 fun and cool years before the pandemic ruined all fun and cool things.

Fireman's Light

I created this mural illustration as part of a broader advertising campaign for Fireman's Light, celebrating the characters that make Texas Texas.

Opendoor

Opendoor had been running the same stock photos ads of skylines and McMansions for years. I worked with the brand design team to develop new city-specific artwork to re-engage folks in some of their biggest markets.

Wingtip

The next time you're at the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco, don't look at it! Look at these fancy windows across the street instead.

Mother's Milk Bank

Milk Messenger is an app that helps mothers donate extra breast milk to babies in need. We developed a whimsical visual system to help make donating feel like a fun and rewarding experience.

PlanGrid

PlanGrid's brand felt tech-y and sleek — great for San Francisco, but not necessarily something that resonated with the people actually out using the product. We explored illustration as a way of bringing more texture and color into the brand.

Precious App

You otter believe that I had a fun time on this one! I was given the dino-mite task of creating some fun stickers and photo frames for Precious' baby photo app.
