Artists for joy podcast materials

The mark needed to work in digital spaces as well as on merchandise and promotional materials.

Wilmington Brew Works beer can label
In 2020 I continued a seasonal collaboration with Wilmington Brew Works (WBW) to create a label for a new can project. Working with WBW's creative lead, we expanded on the 2019 outer space theme for the Gravitational Confection Pumpkin Pie Danish Pastry Quad beer. Taking inspiration from NASA, mid-century modern graphics and patterns a fun new design took shape. The final piece printed in 6 colors with a gold metallic ink used for that extra wow factor. The beer is set to hit the brewery tasting room the week before thanksgiving 2020.
The Caulfields album art
One of the great benefits of living in a creative community is the great friends you make along the way and the opportunities to collaborate that come out of those friendships. I was asked by my buddy Sam to work with his band on digital cover art for a benefit single to be released on December 4, 2020. A cover version of the Captain & Tennille classic "Love Will Keep Us Together". Being a Philly based band the LOVE park statue as influence seemed a logical and fun play on the song title.
Alpenglow Boat Company
I was approached by the Alpenglow Boat Company to create a brand for their company launch. The ABC group provides private tour experiences on Lake Tahoe aboard a classic wooden luxury boat. The goal was to create a brand that complements the a classic ship from the 1950s as well as taking into account the lake and mountain surroundings of California. Playing off national park badges, signage and mid-century logo design we arrived a minimal and elegant solution.
Wilmington Brew Works beer label
Through mutual friends and social media connections I was approached by Wilmington Brew Works (WBW) to create a label for a seasonal bottle project. Working with WBW's creative lead we landed on an outer space theme for the Danish Pastry Quad beer known as Gravitational Confection Pumpkin Pie. A sweet pumpkin beer for the fall and holiday season and high on ABV scale.
Avett Brothers fan stickers
A fan sticker project. I was approached by a friend to create a sticker for an upcoming Avett Brothers' show in the area. Fans of the group have a strong, supportive creative culture and like to trade items via mailing list or by meeting at shows. It was a great oppourtunity to help a friend and have a lot of fun making something new.

Personal icon project
Inspired by an icon project for my employer, I began to create a set of icons based on my personal interests. Each icon is 24px X 24px with a 1 px stroke. All icons were built in adobe illustrator and exported at various break sizes. The creative intent of the icons were more about revealing aspects of my personallity versus a traditional navigation experience for an end user.
Special Olympics Delaware Polar Bear Plunge
Special Olympics of Delaware (SODE) has a tradition of using regional artists and designers to create collateral materials for it largest fundraising event of the year—the Polar Bear Plunge in Lewes, Delaware. I was fortunate enough to be asked in 2011. It was a fun project for a great cause, plus the Plunge weekend is akin to the Mardi Gras of charitable events. It's basically a massive family beach party over Super Bowl weekend.
