The renowned company is based in the mountains of Utah, and also guides Greenland and other international trips. Their main focus is on ensuring the safety and stoke for their customers.

Toyota put up a website about the happenings of Toyota in America. News from their different plants, stories about their teams in different locations & innovations that are happening today.
I created an infographic that included this set of information, at a glance, the numbers behind what Toyota is up to in America. They've probably completely frankensteined my illustrations with different information & colors by now, but this is what it should look like...
Mthoodterritory.com is actually the brand for The Clackamas County Tourism & Cultural Affairs. They basically try to make tourism in the Clackamas County / Mt. Hood area fun.
This project was a site redesign & the client wanted to make it appeal to a 21st century crowd so without changing their logo, we sort of rebranded their digital realm. You can find a before and after screenshot here.
Living in Eastern Idaho for some time, I had the chance to see much illustration, sculptures, photography and other artwork of landscapes or friendly forest critters. Though they all are illustratively articulate, none of them interested me as much as the work I had seen from Charley Harper who saw things from a different perspective.

The BYU–Idaho Department of Theatre & Dance put on a show with the hilarious black comedy by Joseph Kesselring. Directed by Roger Merrill, this Halloween story is about a man & his insane family that has a curious addiction to hospitality & murder.
The poster is mimicking the intro to “The Brady Bunch” because of the strangeness of the family and quirky style that the play is set in. The play is all about characters and each one has distinct traits about them that make the play so interestingly humorous. Because of this inviting poster, there was a full audience just about every night they performed.

The research that I had performed for CareerConsultor.com were based on an idea that not many people go through their schooling knowing exactly what they want to become. Many people go through their colleges changing majors and end up wasting money transferring schools. I created a tool for high school students to college freshmen that would help and inform them on making decisions early in life.
CareerConsultor.com is a place where you can get or give advice concerning professional careers by watching videos of professionals, or (if you’re a professional already) contributing your own two cents of advice to someone out in the world who needs it.
To kick off the Data + Design Project (a Project run by visualnews.com and a great friend of mine) I was asked to be one of the first participants in creating a data visualization for the "Pie Chart" month. You've probably already noticed that this infographic doesn't explain anything at all (if you haven't noticed already, no worries, I don't think less of you).
You might have heard of this thing called SXSW. It's in Texas... Anyways, I got to work with another amazing designer & friend on this infographic capturing what the 2012 Interactive SXSW was like by utilizing social media.
Tracx is a NYC-based company with a SaaS platform for sophisticated brand marketers who want to do more than monitor their social media presence, but actually manage it. Using their ever changing and updating social media database, we were able to pull off these graphics to give a glimpse of what the 2012 SXSW was like for the first week of the event.
Create a campaign for students and alumni of BYU–Idaho as a reminder of certain standards that they committed to upon being accepted to the university. The goal was to pick out words/virtues in a document called Principles of Personal Honor: True at All Times and display them in an interesting way. This was the first in the series, the rest can be found here.
After sketching out many ideas & concepts we decided to create a series of typographic pieces that depicted one of the virtues while a quote was being read about that specific virtue. As a motion graphic, the word integrity is spelled out as if being hand drawn (which it was originally) in an elegant script but the word would be honed in on each letter at a time so as to reveal slowly what the viewer would understand at the end.
This was a paper promotion/informational booklet for Western Paper Co. (Paper Distributor). The client wanted to distribute an informational booklet that displayed an optimistic subject. His objective was to create the perspective that an individual can change the world by just altering the way that they think.
I created this booklet on the many different aspects of smiles. The booklet includes the anatomy of smiles, the science behind smiles, how they affect other people, the difference between real & fake smiles, and other great concepts. Because it was a promotional piece that would go to different printers or design firms I included things like foil paper as a mirror for people to look at their own smile, opaque papers to display layers of muscles behind your smile, and a “whiter-teeth-o-meter” that used pantone swatches to determine the whiteness of your teeth.

T-Shirt design for a Threadless submission. The movie Iron Man had just come out so it was cool then... Overall it got an average of 2.81 from 640 votes (not bad, eh? Well, it could have been better). The concept is pretty self-explanatory.
This was a Letterpress wedding invitation I made when I was between semesters preparing to get married. I designed the invitation, set up the files for a two color print, ordered the photopolymer plates, ordered the paper & envelopes, and inked/letterpressed them myself on my friend Evan’s flat-bed proofing/poster letterpress. I printed six hundred copies on that proofing press in one day (man, I wish I had used a Heidelberg Windmill).
