Many times people ask me what is the process that goes into creating of Ford or Lincoln advertisement pieces, that get produced with high budget for millions of people to see. Well, I will tell you something about that. Usually we hear about something new coming down...
SUV MYCO Units ANNUAL REDESIGN GALORE "REALLY? AGAIN?..." Yes, I'm doing it again... ...and this time it will kick ass - as always... It's about that time of the year. We don't have a "rule", or anything saying that we need to re-design our perfectly fine MYCO...
Google Web Designer HOW TO ANIMATE ONLINE MEDIA UNITS "Two steps forward, five steps back" I miss Flash, almost romantically ...but it's gone, gone, gone (like the song) So after many years of animating, coding (AS1, AS2, AS3...well scrape the latest, I never got into...
Online Media Placements WHERE DO ALL THOSE BANNERS GO? by Haris BANNERS! Soooo I know I said I won't write about my Online Media banners anymore...well, sue me. It's what I do some 36.2% of the time, anyway. Well, what happens with those banners, expandable units,...
I am working on a bunch of Ford Summer Event online media units. You can check an early animation prototype below. A fun project to do, especially when also designing a 2016 Lincoln Summer Event and all other online media (and there's a LOT of it). The worst thing...
Even though I've decided not to make posts about my day to day work (if it's not really something special), this one is kinda cool. See, I developed the look and feel of the Ford's new Veterans and Military Personal Sales Event, not expecting it to go through,...
OK, this project is already posted somewhere on this website, but seeing it again after all these years, I just had to re-post it. I am very proud of the Homepage Takeover for Taurus SHO I conceptualized, designed and produced. I cut videos, coded Flash and animated...
One of my lost work examples, (found on the lost hard drive) is this in-banner game that demonstrates BLIS (blind spot sensors). Instead of making a standard flash banner, I decided to make it more interactive, so it's fun to navigate the vehicle left and right, while...
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 capabilities to simulate...
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 millions of...
OK this is definitely NOT something I would usually put in my portfolio at this point in my career. So, let's just say that the significance of this post is that I've taken something old and re-designed it to something new. Also the animation is amazingly nice and...
New Car Platform (Ford) - New MYCO units for the recently introduced Car Platform - HTML5. We've gone a long way since the early days of Flash MYCO banners with 6 frames and 17 CTA's. This is a clean set of MYCO banners that was developed over the last few weeks. I...
It's getting really busy here. Lincoln Sales events, MYCO redesigns for Ford (Car and Truck) and Lincoln, Library online media, applying the new Lincoln art styles from NY based agency Hudson Rouge, while sending comps back for their comments, re-creating our online...
Recently, Iv'e designed some Ford direct site templates for dealers (Compare pages, where you can just pick which Ford vehicle you want compared to what other car/truck in it's class). Those are already live (yeee) and we're already thinking about the next stage -...
After very successful 'skinning' of Lincoln eMailers, I'm doing the same thing for Ford ones. One would think that it's a very boring thing to do, but actually, when you have a total freedom to do whatever you want, (upgrading some old, crappy design) then you...

Working on the 2015 Mustang HPTO. Very cool project, it should be shown on several websites. It's still a very early stage of the project tho, it's scheduled to launch in few months. CGI will take a long to render.
I would lie if I say that I don't like animating in flash. Especially when it comes to showing our vendors how to do it properly. So I am just animating some flash banners for Truck Month, showing how the animation should go and how dynamic it will be. It's all about...
I've animated the prototype of a flash unit for Ford Spectacular. 5 revisions later, our vendor Pointroll is still struggling to replicate my animation (HA!). It's getting kinda frustrating, one would expect that those expensive, large companies have better animation...
