IBM - Intro

At Buck I was lucky enough to work on IBM’s Smarter Planet campaign, we got to channel our inner Paul Rand for a series of deceptively simple animations that celebrate the role of big data across multiple industries. We were even allowed to animated Rand’s famous Eye Bee M “Rebus!”. I worked on the design team from concept to final designs and was the lead animator for the series.

SNY - Famous

King Kong, Linsanity, sexting scandals. At Buck we got to explore what it means to be a true NY local in this multi-part campaign for Sports New York. Between getting to animate a be-pixeled Brett Favre, and putting the “booty” in “Kardasha-booty” we had a great time creating these spots. I worked across the campaign on design and animation for the series.

Sherwin Williams - Colors In Motion

For Sherwin-Williams color swatch campaign at Buck we employed a bold graphic, less-is-more aesthetic to promote HGTV's hand selected designer color palettes. Like their other campaigns, the abstracted worlds had to be imagined entirely in the shape of their paint chips. The result is a playfully abstract piece driven by imaginative transitions.

Old Fulton Sessions

I did the titles designs and intro animations for a series of intimate performances held on a rooftop in Brooklyn, New York, named after their street - Old Fulton. I had lots of fun playing around with some script lettering that was crying out to be animated!
