When asked if I wanted to also create one more poster, I couldn't resist choosing Moby.
He's easily one of the more well known musicians of the 90's and of Electronic music in general, no matter who they are, most people know his name. Interestingly enough his signature bald head and glasses are also recognizable, one can even say 'iconic' Well, with that I figured I would stick to simplicity and use this as a jumping off point. The chaos that is within the silhouette is remincent of his eclectic musical inspirations and thus a very busy creative mind must be present.
Deltron 3030 concert poster
This piece was created for Sacramento's TBD Fest (formally Launch)
As a fan of his for over a decade now, I was beyond excited to be able to produce a piece for this supergroup. The design came from a pretty simple word scramble that went on in my head when I was laying in bed trying to come up with an idea. "3030" also sounds like "3D 3D!" which then made for this type treatment. As you can see, the '30' has been made into a 3-D structure that actually mirrors '30' if looked at as a transparency. Also, it just looked cool and I liked that.
Preservation & Co.
Preservation & Co. is a Sacramento-based canning and speciality drink mix company. Winner of the best Bloody Mary mix in California, I was hired to develop a series of four shirt designs that would portray the diverse and fun nature of the brand.
The new Logo was also developed to convey a sense of timelessness, presence and authority while also harkening back to the era in which hand-crafted and hand-made products were the hallmark of american industry.

William Berry Campaigns
During the political season of 2012 I worked with WB Campaigns to develop several mailers for 'yes on measure I' which would provide additional funding to Chabot & Las Positas Colleges. The mailers were designed to be impactful, eye-catching and memorable pieces that would make the keep the viewer's interest.
Several pieces in this series were designed with a different color palette while keeping the same typographic treatment-this was meant to renew interest in the viewer yet remind them that it is the same cause.

Hardcore Zen Strikes Again!
This is cover for the new book by Zen Teacher,Punk Rock Bassist and Author Brad Warner.
Brad's biggest influences have been his love for the band 'KISS' and his practice of Zen. The painted figure featured here is known as a "Daruma Doll" and is wildly popular among the Japanese, it's originally painted to resemble the founder of Soto Zen in Japan, Bodhidharma. Naturally combining these elements made perfect sense for a cover of his latest book.
Logo design for ALLSTAR BURGER in Austin,Texas.As you can see, the color scheme and overall brand was spread across the whole of the restaurant branding. Seeing a client keeping constancy throughout the brand makes me smile.
This series was developed for a non-profit "organization" that I personally respect; it's message is simple – promote doing as little to no harm as you can, in your own way. The message is intentionally vague to promote imagination and personal responsibility. This was naturally my objective with these posters, the passerby would stumble upon these posters in subways, schools, alleys, etc and be encouraged by it's simple message and interactive tone.
Here are collections of logos I have done over the years.
Some current, some 'retired' some never to have seen the light.
