Insignia Hair Salon Branding
Insignia Hair Salon is an elegant, state-of-the-art salon providing luxury hair services and facial treatments. I had the pleasure of working with the owner Jessica Rae and interior designer Stefanie Hampton as the salon was being built to design branding elements that would work with the finished salon interior. The goal was to create a look that would stand out as edgy while appealing to a wide audience in the upscale neighborhood of Walnut Creek, California.
Tim Burton's Tragic Toys for Girls and Boys
With expert guidance from Art Director Mark Cox, I designed the logo, product packaging and print advertising for a line of toys, apparel and other merchandise using images and text from Tim Burton’s book, The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and Other Stories. The goal was to create a look for the line that was at once dark and cute, just like Tim Burton's characters.
Strip Search Logo & Book
Strip Search began as a weekly online comic strip contest facilitated by Adam Gallardo for the Dark Horse Comics website in 2002. I designed the logo for the contest and then adapted the look when the winning comic strips were collected into a book.
