A collection of projects I played the role of Designer/Art Director on. I always joke that my job is just to make things look pretty. But I know my passion for how people visually experience something is something much deeper.
I design on Webflow. Including the website you are currently on. (Which apologies for the 90's desktop throwback. I couldn't help it).
Visual design spans far from just graphic design on a computer. Here are some selected works from photo projects I've done with clients in helping tell their story.
Through my years of working with clients on building out visuals to adequately tell their story, I've gotten to design not just on a computer, but with my two hands. Here are some selected works from installations I've done with clients and their physical spaces.
Everyone knows design awards are a joke, but when you get one, you can't help but at least throw it up on your portfolio. We may laugh at awards, but I'm so proud of this piece of work. Read more about the full project and the impact that the story of Tom Townsend had on thousands.
We all remember the huge 4 lb coupon book we all hustled door to door growing up packed full of hundreds of fast food and minigolf coupons. I revamped it for the new generation. The Experience Booklet is a passport style coupon booklet packed full the hottest spaces in the city. We sell thousands every season!
From 2017-2020 my wife and I started and ran a juice bar in St. Louis MO called Hello Juice and Smoothie. We sold the business to new owners the beginning of 2021. My wife was the brains and passion behind every menu item and boho chair that created the most inspiring aesthetic, while I used this as my sandbox for all things design. We could tell countless stories of how starting a cafe with zero experience was the worst and best decision of our lives.
In 2017 my instagram account @stlouisgram in an effort to bring the digital curated feed of our city into real life, threw a massive art gallery party on the rooftop of the new Big Brothers Big Sisters building on Grand. We've always given a platform for street artists on a digital side, and wanted to showcase them in the real world also. So we teamed up with a select group of street artists, printed their photos out free of charge, and partnered with BBBS to invite the city to celebrate. We had over a thousand people come through the doors throughout the entirety of the night.
