I do ideation, creative work and production for major advertising companies. As a Sr. Art Director for Advertising agencies ‘Campbell Ewald’ and ‘Team Detroit’, I’ve worked full-time on Ford, Lincoln, Chevy and Mercury accounts (among others), creating online units with millions of impressions worldwide. My work on Chevy Autobots (animation, music) was approved by S.Spielberg. I’ve created some of the most viewed online media units, including Ford Mustang, Lincoln MKC,  Chevy Camaro and many others. I’ve produced dozens of TV commercials and Music Videos for popular musician, including Madam X,  Ingray, Maxine Petrucci, etc.

I’ve recently animated several conceptual openings for the new Ford look & feel – Using of the script logo and a color splash is just kicking in, in TV, websites, online media units, print. This is my little contribution to the new, latest hot trend in Ford branding – I’ve used After Effects for this task. These 4 are just a small part of the initial 20+ animations I’ve done, in a variety of styles and looks.
