BRANDING, GRAPHIC DESIGN & MOTION GRAPHICS

ROCKIN' AMERICA

"Rockin' America" is a band that evokes the best of American Rock & Roll. Working with ex-Boston vocalist David Victor, we came up with a vision of Americana, diners and Route 66. I believe that everyone loves vintage muscle cars and diner pancakes. I created and logo the invokes a classic muscle car and the best of the American spirit.

GAYCDC

This incredibly fun and talented band needed a "video backdrop" for their stage show, so I created a looping video with a colorful "smokey" background and light reflections incorporating their current logo.

SUPERGROUP / SUPERGROUP SF

A San Francisco Bay Area-based band consisting of seasoned music industry professionals is at the core of SUPERGROUP. The client wanted a simple, looping background video incorporating the members of the band. 

MY ROLE

Video Stage Backdrop - Motion Graphics

SUPERGROUP SF is a musical tribute to not only one of the world's most beautiful cities, but also the epicenter of some of the most iconic, classic, rock and roll music ever written. I wanted to create a logo that visually represented the classic vibe of San Francisco, from the style of the lettering to incorporating one of the city's most celebrated symbols, the Golden Gate Bridge.

For the Video Stage Backdrop, the client requested a realistic motion graphics representation of the logo, complete with rolling fog and lifelike lighting effects.

SKEUOMORPHIC GUI DESIGN

Skeuomorphism has been described as "the design concept of making items represented resemble their real-world counterparts." For example, Universal Audio's UAD audio plug-ins are considered to be the world's most authentic analog hardware, amplifier, and effects emulations in the world, and they look as good as they sound. 

As a test project, I wanted to see if I could recreate graphical user interfaces for a couple of iconic Fender amplifiers, the 1968 Twin Reverb and the 1965 Deluxe Reverb "Limited Edition Wine Red model." I created both "showroom new" and "vintage and very well worn" versions of each amplifier. 

(*With the exception of the Fender logos themselves, all of the elements shown, from the knobs, speaker grill cloth, input jacks, and jewel lights, to the handles, hardware, and even Phillips screw heads were created by hand from scratch.)
