Kinetic typography video for Sweet n Sour by Waterbed, an alternative pop duo heavily influenced by psychedelic rock and 90s pop. The video mirrors this influence through its color scheme and use of glitches reminiscent of early television sets.
A poster was created first to establish the color scheme, type system and to build the objects that would later be animated. To complement the song’s 90’s synth, and psychedelic undertones, I chose to collage photographs and footage that visualized the opposites referenced in the lyrics. These objects are defamiliarized by their placement withinin this “sweet n sour” candyland and through a color treatment reminiscent of a Victor Moscoso screenprint.
Collaborated with National Geographic Photographer Joel Sartore to create over twelve different motion graphic video pieces. These clips were projected onto the side of St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, as part of a public art projection to inspire change in light of the current climate and extinction crises. The show was put on by the Oceanic Preservation Society, and Obscura Digital, December 8th, 2015. Click the button below for footage of the entire event. Clips of a few individual projections can be found below.
These animations, and additional ones have since been used in Nat Geo Live presentations around the world, as well as in National Geographic and OOOA's #SaveTogether campaign in Times Square on Endangered Species Day.
This poster brochure visualizes the impacts of conflict palm oil production locally and on a global scale, while also calling attention to the ingredient’s ubiquity in fast food, snack items, and everyday toiletries. The poster provides shoppers with methods they can use to distinguish between brands that have committed to utilizing sustainably-sourced palm oil, and those that haven’t.
Post-structural type fusion poster, working backwards from formal design processes. Beginning first with creating abstract forms, and then finding a concept within later in the process. From there, used the forms to create typographic shapes to assist the concept of the piece. The textures, though digitally created, mimicked materials and life in the outside natural world. 'Realness' is often used in drag culture to describe a performer who has effectively and realistically imitated something different than themselves.
Motion graphic explainer video created to promote the Jeffrey D Clark Center's $100 Startup Business Competition. Used original illustrations and After Effects to create this simple instructional video highlighting the easiness of applying for the competition. This video was promoted online through the Center's various social media channels, and was shown live to 300 students. The competition received over 60 team applications, each containing 2-3 participants.

The National Geographic PhotoArk is Joel Sartore's multiyear endeavor to create portraits of every captive species on the planet, before they disappear to the extinction crisis. This project is focused on both archiving these animals, but also getting the world to care about the plight of endangered species, and to inspire people to take action in their everyday lives to reduce their carbon footprint.
This video contains behind-the-scenes footage of photographing the animals, while also utilizing motion graphics to bring the still images to life. This was one of the final projects created during my internship with Joel Sartore at the PhotoArk.
