A quarterly New York publication featuring fashion photographers, popular culture, and art from a wide range of disciplines. A complete re-design of the magazine created the core visual language, look, and feel of the entire magazine. Each issue introduces the main story shoot from the front and the subject also shoots from the back for the back cover. Photographs are almost always full bleed, shifting the focus away from the design sometimes to the actual image.
Each story opened with a type of treatment to highlight the different sense of moods and tempos for each story. Worldwide distribution through independent bookstores.
I created the poster and social media elements for Darius Jones, an extraordinarily gifted alto saxophonist and composer in New York. The goal for this poster was to obtain and provoke some disruption in the visual since Darius Jones music often times provokes a complete disruption in his music ignoring the guidelines of modern jazz. Soul-power is at his foundation; forward-looking expression always at the core.
I created a distinctive image for outdoor graphics. Using the main logo of the magazine I created dynamic and exciting typographic pattern that is seen on the first page of the magazine and used for outdoor posters along side the actual cover creating an actual bridge with the newly designed magazine. Also, I created other elements of branding, digital flyer invitations for parties, press kits, and minimalist Tee shirts as well.
I art directed and designed all the various logos from scratch to finish for main game branding. The main logo is always important for game branding, some logos are heavily stylized and the palette is always geared to catching the consumer’s eye.
Many of the logos I created for Rockstar Games were also used for Tee-shirts, in game graphics, Comic con and for the internal team at Rockstar Games. Each logo tells you about the insane and zanny world of Rockstar Games and the gaming world.
