because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted."

Iconography

Software used:
Illustrator

An opportunity to create brand standards for an international company’s iconography was brought to me after an inconsistency between process, formatting, and icon design was noticed. The guidelines and brand standards I created helped give the entire design team enough information to create icons that felt like they were from the same family without limiting the creative process.  Within you will find some of the iconography I have created.

Illustrations

Software used:
Photoshop | Illustrator

What I love about creating and working with vector artwork is I am later given the opportunity to reuse the illustrated design to create simple animations. Having the ability to work quickly and efficiently as both an illustrator and motion designer has provided me opportunities that would normally but sent to an agency.  Within you will see why I have an affinity for Adobe Illustrator and figuring out how to push my illustrations in the program.
