We recently had a coworker leave Redroc, and we’re all pretty bummed about it! She’s been here for a while, started from the bottom, and has really become an integral part of the company. We wanted to make her something to remember us by, so I created a little magazine cover (“The Goodbye Issue”). Everyone she was close to wrote a little blurb. I was limited in my photo choices (it was a surprise so we couldn’t ask!), so she’s actually in her wedding dress here, with photoshopped skirt and Tito’s in hand (her favorite). We then printed it out and framed it for her last day.
Good luck at the new gig, Daisy!
Fun little illustration project I got to do for an October employee event for Lamb’s Tire & Automotive; employees and their families went out to Six Flags for the day (there’s one more flag on the roller coaster in the background, hah).
Just got sent a shirt today! I’m pretty happy with how it came out. I don’t get to illustrate people very often; I’m going to try and incorporate it more into my personal projects. Originally it was an interracial family, but colors were limited later on in the project. Anyway, the kid got the dad’s nose but the mom’s ears.
You can check out the digital version in a gif on Dribbble.
I recently created this look for the Agaverama tequila sale at Twin Liquors. Definitely a fun campaign to work on, with the color freedom and subject matter. It was a tiny surreal coming across it in Austin Monthly (I’ll never get used to seeing my work in the wild).
I mocked up a little pin of the agave and put it on Dribbble when I made this ad in July. Then I learned you can’t do gradients on pins. Boooo.
Half of the Proof Advertising creative floor seems to have an ongoing Jenga game at all times. But this game had gotten out of hand, and it took Sarah to end it all on her last day. It was quite the event.
Video shot by many Proofers (including me), and edited by the talented Bud Hasert, who blew me away when I found out he does crazy-great costume work.
It’s always cool to see stuff you did at work out in public! Saw this at the Cedar Park Center this weekend when I went to see Video Games Live. This went through a lot of concepts and revisions, so it was nice to have it finally see the light of day.
I haven’t seen my KGSR “Discover the Difference” ad that’s at the Dell Diamond yet, but hopefully I’ll have an opportunity to snap a photo of that soon. It has a custom typeface out of music shapes and instruments/tools (I started with the Cubano typeface) that I made specifically for the ad, because what we wanted didn’t seem to exist, or was too childish. Lots of fun little vector icon-like illustrations.
Well, Blues on the Green got canceled this week, due to the crazy monsoon we’ve been going through in central Texas. But! We’re on schedule for next week (weather permitting).
Here’s a couple of fun things that I’ve gotten to work on for the event.
Promo poster and branded aluminum water bottles for giveaway (to celebrate the 25th anniversary of KGSR/Blues on the Green!).
This year I got to design the label that went on the company Christmas gift (although I couldn’t say “Christmas” on the label, of course). I went ahead and did some custom script, because I feel like any designer in their right mind does custom type whenever they can!
You can check out the sketch I posted on Dribbble. The digital version stayed pretty much the same (other than some alignment/sizing issues and other small tweaks).
Hope everyone has a great holiday season!
