BRANDING, PRINT, & ADVERTISING
I worked on the packaging and key art for several titles. L.A. Noire's package was mostly laid out by me, as well as the re-prints of GTAIV and Read Dead Redemption's Game of the Year edition. I also helped shape the key art and branding for Max Payne 3.
I worked with the design team on the branding for Max Payne 3 and Grand Theft Auto V. Working on the logomarks for these titles was very exciting – initially, we explored many options that brought these logos to unfamiliar territory. I even developed a new typeface for Max Payne 3. Ultimately, we arrived at these two marks. I learned two idioms foundational to my design practice, both bizarrely dealing with babies, as presented by Rockstar leadership:
Essentially, don't fall in love with your ideas, but don't lose the essence of a mark in your explorations. I can't show you those babies, but I'm sure you can deduct how we got here in the months we spent exploring these concepts.
I prepared these large scale adverts for the L.A. Noire campaign, seen here in Times Square and downtown Los Angeles, but also seen in cities worldwide.
I prepared these promotional stickers for printing for the 10th Anniversary of Grand Theft Auto III.
CINEMATOGRAPHY & EDITING
While in the production department, we worked with filmmaker John Hillcoat (The Road, The Proposition) on a thirty minute film shot entirely inside of Red Dead Redemption. It originally aired on Fox channels nationwide and later on IGN.com.

I contributed a significant amount of footage to this trailer in particular, in promotion of L.A. Noire before I moved to the art department.
