Computer Comp I made for Roman, a subscription-based erectile dysfunction prescription service. I used ET and elongated his neck so as to portray what the meds can do, but did so in an exaggerated and humorous way.

Alternative T-Shirt I designed for SWOOP Agency. My beloved Professor and Mentor, Bill Ford despises the Comic Sans font. I designed a shirt that replaced the original font with Comic Sans because I'm extra like that.

Brief Package I did for The Old Warsaw Restaurant campaign. I chose a younger target market because I wanted a challenge.

COPYWRITING

I introduced the idea of "refined rustic" to the Oak Knoll Ranch which refined the brand. Refined Rustic gives off a feel of a "home away from home" and a place where dreams really do come true. I wanted to brand Oak Knoll as the ultimate Texas style wedding venue.
