The Smiley Team Branding

The Smiley Team Branding

Meredith and Clay Smiley service the DFW area as two of the most knowledgeable and specialized real estate agents you can find. Meredith had been practicing for years and now that her husband Clay is joining her, she wanted to make sure they had a new brand identity that represented the two of them becoming one team!

The logo we developed features two separate lines, joining together to form their single initial “S.”

FIGMO RV Photo Edit

FIGMO RV Photo Edit

FIGMO Adventures owner Mike Knuckles had snapped this quick photo on his phone last time he had taken his RV out. He asked me if I'd include it on his new website but I felt it needed some substantial touch ups before it would really work well. This video features a time lapse of my entire editing process from start to finish. 45 minutes of work sped up into a 1.5 minute clip! I love photoshop! 

FIGMO Adventures Branding

FIGMO stands for "Finally I Got My Opportunity!" FIGMO Adventures is a newly founded travel agency out of the Rockwall, Texas area. Their owner, Mike Knuckles is a former member of the U.S. Air Force and wanted to pay tribute to that branch of the military when designing his new brand. Working together with he and his wife Jen, we designed the branding to implement both the Command Chief Master Sergeant rank emblem and the various destinations (Mountains, Forest, and Beach) that FIGMO has to offer!  

First Response Branding

First Response Branding

First Response Emergency Services has tasked me with re-designing their logo and creating a fresh new look for their branding. I took the existing globe element from their previous logo and reworked the concept to provide an updated look and feel. They service to the entire world so they wanted to make sure this global presence was still included in their design. This new logo is both simple and clearly communicates their identity. I look forward to building more elements for them moving forward. 

Katy Train Photo Edit

Katy Train Photo Edit

After being asked to remove someone from this Katy Train photo, I wanted to quickly record my work and show my process of erasing the individual from view. I did this by compositing two photos together, matching the perspective and cloning out the remainder of his body. Check out the video above to see a time lapse of my process

Basketcase

Basketcase

Subscription boxes are growing more and more popular. Nearly every niche market now has some sort of box you can receive in the mail every month! What about gift baskets? The newly founded Dallas startup "Basketcase" aims to change the game with their custom made-to-order gift baskets of all shapes and sizes. Simply choose one of their many themes, select your size and customize each order with special add-ons and features. 

Working directly with the founders I sought to create a fresh logo for their company that is both inviting, colorful and speaks to the various gifts one might find in their basket. Whether you're buying a birthday basket for your kid or a celebratory wine and cheese basket for a co-worker... Basketcase makes each and every gift unique and special! It was a pleasure working with these guys and I look forward to watching them continue to grow in the future!

With the release of the new iPhone X, I was asked to create a new promotional graphic to support the Texan Theater App I designed last year. This app allows customers to buy tickets, reserve seats and much more. This promo highlights the features of the app while also showing it off on the screen of the cutting edge phone.

CNN Panorama Touch Up

CNN Panorama Touch Up

While working with Cyclomedia® I was given the opportunity to touch up a variety of different images from all across the states! My favorite was this panoramic photo of the CNN building in Atlanta, GA. 

Look closely and you will see all of the items I removed, specifically there were tourists standing in front of the logo as well as a broken down car on the right hand side! I love doing work like this, touching up photos is one of my favorite things that I get to do. 

Here is one other example:

Reverse Flash

Reverse Flash

I can't wait for the new Justice League movie to drop! It is only a matter of time before this guy shows up in the new DC movie universe. I wanted to take a break from work, bust out photoshop and create a rendering of what this iconic villain might look like on the silver screen! 

Photo Retouch

Photo Retouch

Retouching a photo can make all the difference in the world! Here is an example of the type of enhancements you can expect. Check out the before and after of this lake house photo. 

Photoshop Ski Boat (Before & After)

Photoshop Ski Boat (Before & After)

While working with Hexbug®, they wanted to see what a branded ski boat might look like after being skinned with vinyl. The original image (left) was altered inside of Photoshop to present a possible design for a branded boat. All colors and graphics on the right hand side were added in Photoshop.

CORE Signage (Day vs. Night)

CORE Signage (Day vs. Night)

When considering a backlit sign for the front of their building, the team from the CORE wanted to see a rendering of what this sign might look like. To give them a proper demonstration, I chose to use Photoshop to alter the original photo (left) to create a night time view (right). In both photos, the CORE sign does not truly exist. All signage was added in Photoshop onto a black building.

Texan Marquee (Before & After)

Texan Marquee (Before & After)

For the cover of a historic restoration magazine, I chose to use photoshop to add photo-realistic marquee letters to the front of the theater. The red letters were designed to mimic the classic red plastic letters that the theater used to use to promote their movies.

This RC-135 is just one example of how a simple photograph can be turned into a work of art! 

Welch's Grape Juice Ad

Welch's Grape Juice Ad

As we are (currently) nearing the end of this 2016 Presidential Election, I thought it would be fun to create a clever political ad for Welch's and their iconic grape juice. This project was fun to work on as it leaves a sweet taste in your mouth rather than the bitter we so frequently taste from the news and social media.

CLUE The Musical | American Historic Theatre

CLUE The Musical | American Historic Theatre

Based on the iconic board game, the CLUE musical utilizes a talented cast to journey with the audience through a the thrilling murder mystery performance we all know and love. The American Musical Theatre of Historic Bridgeport, Texas trusted me with the opportunity to build their showcase poster and other branding elements for the event. 

This poster, along with t-shirts and handouts, informed the community of this show and the rebirth of this historic theatre. When designing, I wanted to take an eerie realistic portrayal of the weaponry and blood stain upon the logo.

Next Express

Next Express

Cutting edge cell phone retailer "Next Express" can be found in major malls across the country. However, before they got their start, the start-up team was in desperate need of a logo and corporate branding to use moving forward.

The soft edges of the word "NEXT" is relatable to the round edges of a common text messaging bubble while the sharper edges of "EXPRESS" speak to the speed and swiftness of their service. Accompanied by the variety of mobile device silhouettes and speech bubble in the "R," the branding proved hard to miss when strolling by. Everything shown above was inspired by a modern-day smart phone UI while the colors communicate new and fresh deliverables.

MO Pockets

The "MO Pockets" Chinese Dumpling Restaurant was on the hunt for a designer to partner with them in creating their branding. Although the unique flavor and elegant preparation may be enough to attract returning customers, they first needed an image that would become iconic with the success of their business. 

The logo above incorporate the traditional lettering with a rounded bottom mirroring that of the dumpling itself. The clever catch phrase "Get Ya Some" came from a fun brainstorming session discussing the unique name of the eatery.
