This is not good bye

AB Testing of Lincoln OLM

Fallen Soldier Shirt

Fallen Soldier Shirt

Last weekend I did something that deserves to be listed here, even tho many projects I work on never get mentioned on my website (it’s crowded anyway). I got commissioned to come up with a design for a shirt, on a theme “All gave some, some gave all”...
Ford Military Bonus Event

2016 Truck Platform

2016 Truck Platform

I know I promised I won’t be posting many of my day-to-day work-related designs / units, but this one is important. Why, you ask? Well, because it’s entirely done in H5, as opposed to Flash (which is dead, dead, dead). We still don’t have...
Book Illustrations

Ford StakeHolders Units

Ford StakeHolders Units

I think I’ll soon become way more selective with my posted work and projects. Not because I don’t like everything I design / Art direct, but because there is SO MUCH ordinary stuff that honestly I don’t care about much. Yes, those units get many...

Cosby TV Spot

Cosby TV Spot

Bill Cosby – TV Commercial for a Lawyer’s Office OK, I know this is a strange one. I got a request from a client to deliver a TV spot involving Bill Cosby, but to heavily retouch him (as pictured) in a 10 sec version (SD, so it’s only 720x480). Also...

Site Maintenance

OK, This is a big one. I am re-doing my 2 years old website. Why, you ask? I will tell you. Even though, I am getting thousands of hits a day, my bounce rate was high – which means that most people would check my homepage only, never going any deeper....
