Sarasota Police Department
During my senior year in school they added a new class called, The Collaboratory.This was a new course that brought together students across multiple disciplines to solve real design problems in a real world environment. The Sarasota Police department had granted Ringling College with the task of re-imagining their brand. As well as help better their relationship with the community. This project intends to fortify/re-establish the visual and communicative aspects of the police department through the use of design and social media.
Starting out, we wanted to get a good idea about the demographics of the area. So we hit the books, searched the web and found out everything we could about the area and the people who lived there.
We then took it to the streets where we talked to people in the community about their feelings on the Police, and how they thought the Police could be more involved. We asked them about changes they'd like to see, or any suggestions they might have.
Now that we had a lot of research it was time to get to work. After brainstorming with a million and one different word combinations we came up with blue - being the police, and you - being the community. The plus represents the two working together. This would become our slogan for all Police/Community initiatives.
Here are some of they different logos we came up with. They were presented to the Chief for a final decision.
The final logo!
After the logo was finalized we started making different promotional pieces, which included t-shirts, stickers, bumper stickers, buttons, and more!
We organized an outdoor movie event where we would project a movie onto the side of the police department building. This was the first that turned into many!
Before the movie night, the Police held a press release with us and all the local news stations. We presented the new brand, "Blue Plus You" and it served as a kick off of the whole initiative.
The first movie night was an absolute sucess!
We also we given the task of redesigning the Sarasota Police website. Here is the old site.
Here's short documentary explaining the new Blue Plus You initiative.
Children and Books
Throughout my college years I tutored children in poor and under-served areas. Through all the yelling and back talking, and the tough front they put up, the second a book is opened up you can see their imaginations at work. Their hearts and minds open up to you and it is absolutely amazing. I want to share the importance of reading to children to the world and hope that we can all help better the lives of children everywhere.

The Body Shop
This project was created as an entry for the D&AD New Blood Awards. The Body Shop is the original ‘natural and ethical beauty’ brand and stands as a force for positive social and environmental change.
The Body Shop wanted their new look to encompass their quirky tone of voice, product efficacy and premium beauty credibility. We created a new visual language for the brand, reflecting their pioneering spirit within the beauty industry and as a forward-thinking brand. This language was channeled through a variety of different types of media including the web, window posters, campaign poster, and an informational pamphlet.
The product's all-natural, fair-trade ingredients inspired our look and feel for the new visual communication style. We wanted to bring a tactile quality to the brand to reflect the ingredients' origin. This is shown through the handwritten typography and the photographs we made with the application of the logo.

Above & Below
Above & Below is an environmental convention about the many problems that the Philippines is facing; such as over fishing, deforestation, soil erosion, air and water pollution, loss of coral reefs, and so much more. If these issues continue to reoccur, the country will soon be in a dire state that will not only be damaging for itself, but will also have a huge impact on all the countries it trades with. The four day convention starts on January 18th, 2014, and will feature speakers and panel discussions. It will be held in Manila, Philippines with the purpose of utilizing the area’s tourist attractions and positive energy to attract attendees. This will result in fresh ideas and innovative solutions to aid the Philippines in putting an end to its toxic rituals. The design of the campaign is based on the environmental and social issues that the Philippines is facing. It contrasts soft edges with geometric shapes and features saturated colors with repeating elements.
