While it's not a locale that generally rolls off tips of tongues when it comes to promotional hotspots, Nikon has nonetheless chosen Georgetown, South Carolina to promote its new D40 line. In doing so, it turned over 200 townsfolk into young Richard Avedons and Annie Leibowitzes, handing cameras to each one to capture the lives and culture of Georgetown. Once visitors take a stroll through Picturetown, they're greeted with a multitude of photo galleries and background on the campaign. With photo subjects ranging from beaches to dogs to the residents themselves, Nikon virtually brought a town to life with simple shutters and created some vivid imagery in the process.

Nikon's new campaign puts a small town into focus [5.28.07]
When the Dallas Cowboys planned to build the largest retractable-roof stadium in the NFL, they partnered with CDW to make it the ultimate entertainment experience for their fans.The beauty of 3-million-square-foot Cowboys Stadium is impossible to miss. Two towering arches span the length of the stadium providing enough support to house the world's largest HD video board. The world's largest retractable glass doors rest at each end of the stadium giving the 100,000-plus fans panoramic views and fresh air.This beauty has brains too. With the help of CDW, Cowboys Stadium features a brand new virtualized data center. It incorporates 127 Hewlett-Packard blade servers and a new 100-terabyte storage area network (SAN) that provide the processing power needed to run operations throughout the stadium.

We Americans constantly feel the urge to travel — to break free from our comfort zones and explore something greater than what we know. It’s in our blood, after all; a desire for adventure is ingrained in our DNA.
The North American continent is full of frontiers, and we’ve never been shy about conquering them. There’s something exotic about the domestic — something glorious about uncovering every corner of this country. And once every corner has been found, you’ll see that beyond our two coasts is a world of even more frontiers and experiences waiting for you, the American traveler, the born pioneer.
But of course, you’ll need a passport.
As bold as its new card art, The New American Passport campaign for Citi® / AAdvantage® challenges convention with a modern, ownable approach to a travel rewards credit card.
Lady Liberty’s torch is the anchor of Liberty Mutual's communications.
It is a visual representation of the brand’s point of view. The symbolism of a torchbearer helps convey their principles and products through a consistent strategic and visual language. It is how all channels stay true to the Illumination path.
Preparing for the launch of Liberty Mutual's rebranding, I co-led the initial campaigns email and DM redesign and was tasked with incorporating the illumination theme. This included a complete redesign of Liberty Mutual's email templates, DM templates, as well as a microsite for existing customers that announced the new look.
Many clients aim to create viral hits that consumers share by the millions -- work like OfficeMax's "Elf Yourself" and CareerBuilder's "Monk-e-Mail." Add Time Warner Cable to this group.

As the digital creative lead on many different Unilever brands, I oversaw the complete rebranding and redesign of product sites for Suave & Motions hair. This proved to be quite challenging. We had to leverage a pre-existing backend for all Unilever sites that was initially designed to feature approximately a dozen products per brand.
Suave alone features well over 70 products. Ultimately, we settled upon a similar design treatment for both brands that is quite well organized, yet is able to showcase rich photography, and not just bland product shots.
Appalled by the widespread epidemic of tasteless fast food value menus,
Wendy's has launched the Bureau For Better Value to educate hungry citizens about the existence of affordable food that actually tastes good. The MRM Worldwide campaign features a website starring a pair of zealous fast food aficionados dedicated to instructing visitors about every item on Wendy's 99¢ value menu, through Flash-integrated videos implanted throughout the duo's highly interactive virtual basement. The site also boasts a series of instructional videos featuring old timey black-and-white footage overlaid with amusing Wendy's-specific voiceover dialogue, as well as a bizarre animated short in which an anthropomorphic Frosty and Fries do battle—all of which have also been uploaded to a special Wendy's branded page on YouTube.

Popmoney is a p2p payment platform that is integrated with 1000's of banks all across the US. It lets you send, request and recieve money from anybody by using their email address or mobile number.
As the design lead, I was tasked with creating Popmoney's marketing site to help explain how this product works to an audience that may already have access to it, and not even know! In addition to the marketing site, I also helped to skin the actual popmoney application for both desktop and mobile devices.
As the creative lead on the redesign of an ever growing and important section of CDW's website, we delivered a very templated, yet extremely expandable system for CDW's Solutions & Services.
With over 20 sections, multiple sub-sections, regions, and industries, this site needed to accomodate an enormous amount of content, yet be flexible enough for the client to continue to update or change it as frequently as possible. The site features a rich video player across most section headers to deliver updated brand messaging, or highlight recent case studies.
