Private Member’s Club Concept Design

I have been working with a private member’s club to design the concept for the next chapter in their growth. Without giving away too many details too soon, the new club will house not only member’s lounge, meeting and private event spaces, but also a large culinary component as well.

We are in the process of [...]

Interaction Design Project: Amplify Education Tablet

In early 2012 I had the pleasure of working with interaction designer and author Josh Seiden of Neo. We teamed up on a project for Amplify, a division of News Corporation.

Amplify has been developing a tablet-based education system for k – 12 students. Our task was to lead the Amplify team through an exercise in [...]

Esquire Magazine Cover Design

Esquire Magazine has a tradition of featuring inventive cover design (where did George Lois find a soup can big enough to hold Warhol?) In 2011, invited by an editor at Esquire to submit a cover proposal or two, I jumped at the chance and came up with a few ideas.

I started with the question of [...]

Fluorescent & Festive: 2011 Holiday Card Design

Channeling Dan Flavin for this Holiday card I designed for the 2011 Holiday season. Rigorous, spartan, cool, modernist… everything one could desire for Christmas cheer;)  Not sure why it took me so long to post…

Celebrate the Christ Child’s Birth; 2012 Card Design

With a little kid running the show around here we tend to play with a lot of Legos. Thus, though it is the eleventh hour, it is in this way that inspiration has struck. Here, then, is my 2012 Christmas card design:

Occupy Sandy Shirt Design

I am very inspired and appreciative of the work that the Occupy Sandy movement is doing in bringing relief to the victims of Hurricane Sandy.  I love the ‘if you have an idea just do it’ ethos.  It’s certainly messy.  But it is happening.  And it is making a difference.  In that spirit I designed [...]

Warhol With an iPhone?

The Rolling Stones ‘Sticky Fingers’ album cover by Andy Warhol is a genius piece of art.  Straight forward yet clever, engaging, provocative, tactile… never mind that the zipper can scratch the heck out of the vinyl.  I was messing around with some photography of my own recently and it struck me that a phone in [...]

Shepherds on Twitter: 2010 Christmas Card Design

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
I am a huge fan of Twitter.  Not only is it a great way to connect with a vast array of interesting people but it also serves as a powerful source of inspiration for me.  It’s limiting structure of 140 characters per tweet and unique informational symbology have combined to create [...]

Halloween Pumpkin Carving: Warhol’s ‘Self Portrait (Fright Wig)’

This is what I worked on in between trick-or-treat knocks at our door.  I do not want to think about how long this pumpkin carving project took me but…. I am pleasantly surprised with how it turned out.  A new rendition of Andy Warhol’s ‘Self Portrait (Fright Wig)’, 1986 (on the left) executed in back [...]
