• Bones Brigade - An Autobiography. This piece is really special to me because it’s not everyday that you get to see your work (much less your name) on Admittedly, this was pretty much just a layout and styling of existing assets, but again – Bones Brigade! Not complaining.

  • Impossible. A couple weekends ago I decided to start my day by figuring out how to draw impossible objects. This is the first, I plan on doing more.

  • Into The Woods. Did another mix for Designers.MX, this time all drum n bass. Wanted to continue the theme from the last mix, with part of the type being obscured by something in the image.

  • Ooh baby, I like it raw. I was listening to ODB and had and idea I wanted to put down. This was the result.

  • SimpleGeo Website. The SimpleGeo website is really fun to design. Geographic icons, topography, maps, et al – all cool elements to draw from. The design is meticulously constrained to the grid, and most of the content sits within polygons whose points are plotted on it.

  • The Hard Way. This is what happens when you ask me to make a metal mix and design a cover for it. I was watching 127 Hours when I came up with the concept, and got to work immediately after. I started out with this image from iStockPhoto and then, um, hacked away. It’s 100% Photoshop, with the exception of the ovals for the severed parts, which I made in Illustrator. The type is Neutraface Slab Display Thin.

  • SimpleGeo logo redesign. The type is customized Gotham Rounded and Gotham along with the compass illustration which I redrew for continuity with the new type.

  • Goremet. When I lived in Colorado, my friend Danny and I started a horror movie and potluck club. This is the logo I designed for it.

  • Threadless logo refresh. Added the “tees” descriptor and updated the “Nude No More” text using a slightly vertically stretched version of HFJ’s typeface, Archer, which I chose to replace Apex Serif after many years of faithful service.

  • The Threadless Store. We had always talked about opening a store, and by 2006, we had no reason not to. I got to do graphic and web design along with some industrial and interior design too. The Threadless Store is a serious contender for the most fun project I’ve been a part of.

  • Threadless Alumni Club Medal.  When we came up with the Threadless Alumni Club, we wanted to be to give each alumni a bunch of cool swag. I customized the Alumni Club logo I designed to be used for these awesome little embossed steel medals.

  • IllList. The funny thing about Illlist is that I wasn’t actually invited to join until years after I had done the logo. The brainchild of my friend Harper Reed and others, Illlist is a giant Google group of epically awesome proportions. The rest is a secret :)

    The darker version on the top is the one we went with.

  • Hejfina. This site design was for a high-end furniture store in Chicago. Sadly, this never saw the light of day and this photo is the only record I have of the design.

  • Villians Bar & Grill. I sometimes take on fun and/or challenging freelance projects so I can stay fresh. I designed their identity, business cards, menus, signage, drink menus, specials menus, flyers, posters, tees and bar essentials.

  • Workspace, circa 2006. In Threadless’ 3rd office, we got ridiculous and took a 20’ x 60’ piece of the building and broke it into three enormous offices. Also, choosing an Eames Executive Chair is choosing to ignore 50+ years of ergonomic research. Ouch.
