I can polish a turd

like any other designer, but I prefer to work with a good idea instead of good decorations.

COVER DESIGN

I’ve been designing covers EVERY WEEK for alt weekly newspapers since 2009. Getting people to stop and pick up a newspaper is a challenge. I’ve found you’ve got to delight and surprise them while hinting that their life could be more fun if they grabbed this paper. See more of my covers here.

EDITORIAL DESIGN

It’s like making a burrito with pictures and words. In the end, its all got to be wrapped up and crammed into your head.

LOGO DESIGN

If a logo is the face of a brand wouldn’t you want it to be a happy face?

PRODUCT DESIGN

For reals: I designed a pure silver belt buckle that looks like an elk head, can open beer bottles with it’s mouth, and holds the beer bottle in it’s antlers leaving your hands free to cast a fishing pole or flip a burger.

Maybe you don’t need a bronze belt buckle that reminds you to Stay Wild every time you take your pants off?
Maybe you do!!!

I designed some shirts for folks like Hurley, Uniqlo, Sitka, Black Fern, and me just because I wanted to wear.

Ever since I was a kid I’ve liked toys. Now that I’m a dad I’m till allowed to like them.
