This project was particularly exciting because it unexpectedly ended up showing how awesome humans can be. Instead of visualizing all the crazy things lottery winning can buy you, we wanted to find out from actual people what they would do if they won. So we asked them and visualized the answers in various infographics. One graphic tracked the words used most frequently and the word used most was "help," which can't help but make you feel pretty warm inside. The results flipped the notion of the lottery being a selfish indulgence into quite the opposite.
On an extremely limited budget, CSN California wanted to promote key San Jose Sharks games so we explained (in great detail) why the Sharks are the ruler amongst the rest of the NHL namesakes. This project was a great excuse to pretend it is acceptable to talk about hockey in excess as though it's totally normal behavior.

When you use AT&T download speeds are faster leaving you with some extra time on your hands. We suggest a few interesting ways to spend that time.
logo + poster design 2012
Open Co. is a re-imagination of a traditional conference. Instead of various panels in a convention center, Open Co. invites participants to experience the offices of city's most innovative companies.
The Open Co. logo was created for each of the four cities and a music festival inspired poster was created to launch the first Open Co. in San Francisco.
Our goal was to encourage people to stop buying puppies online because those puppies are often from puppy mills. We wanted to pull back the veil of buying online with the truth in a way that didn't make people feel crappy or guilty.

I took on this project mostly so I could find out the answer to the title of the book. Click here to find out the answer for yourself.
Hawaii and Alaska seem to get the short end of the stick when it comes to US cartography. On most US maps, the 49th and 50th state float haphazardly somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico, if they are fortunate enough to make it on the map at all. And about 0% of the time are they drawn to scale. This project gives the states the cartographic representation they deserve.
I love a good joke. I especially love a nerdy design joke. My friends who own Old Tom Foolery convinced me that my typestache joke poster was one worth sharing. Click here to get one of your very own.
I love foliage. Seriously, I love foliage.
Slutty State Birds
State birds are interesting in that a bird species can represent many states as the official state bird. These multiple use birds are what I call slutty state birds. And slutty state birds need slutty state bird prints.
And yes, slutty state trees are in the works.
It's near impossible for an art director to design his or her own wedding invitations, which it means it is impossible for an art director couple to design their own invitations. By some magical force or lapse in the time-space continuum, two art directors created their own wedding invitations and lived happily ever after. Photos by Sean Flanigan.
I can't remember how this project started, but once I got the idea, I couldn't stop.
