Ever wonder what would happen if you gave the big bad wolf an Oreo? Oreo asked Royale to make a 30 second anthem, featuring the voice stylings of Owl City to inspire the childlike wonder in all of us. This spot, “Wonder if...”, is a CG painted world of vampires, wolves, and legendary piggies that are all brought together by an Oreo.
IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE FAIRY TALE AND PEACE MAKING THEME GIVEN BY OREO, I DESIGNED AND TEXTURIZED THESE FRAMES TO BE KID AND FAMILY FRIENDLY. I CAME UP WITH THE COLOR PALETTE AND HOW THE CHARACTERS WOULD BE INTERACTING WITH EACH OTHER IN EACH SCENE BEFORE AND AFTER THE OREO.
Visa wanted to communicate how their customers can effortlessly access all their financial needs through their Digital Wallet. I was assigned to design the boundless capabilities of the user interface and informational data of Visa’s New Digital Wallet.
In this commercial spot, we had to show how streamlined, secure, and flexible the app was going to be. So in order to build strategic solutions to simplify the user's experience, we chose 5 poppy colors to help organize the financial information that belonged to each Visa card. We customized the cards to a round-cornered rectangular glass to imply the clarity, friendliness and security that Visa provided. There was also a need for hierarchy in regards to the information on each card so I had to design the layout and make sure it was legible. Visa’s digital wallet allowed users to access their credit cards through a single service, saving time and effort, and providing the secure technology with reliable customer service.
Visa asked for several directions on how their logo would resolve. This is the one they chose especially because we were already using glass to imply "security" in the sequence. Since security and privacy are Visa's top priorities, they loved the idea of the logo being made up of these glass pieces.
In this project, while freelancing at a motion graphics firm, the team and I were not told who we were designing for but we were given the task to design a futuristic entertainment system that floated in mid air. This took place in 2012.
I thought an immersive reality where after wearing some type of glasses, contacts, or even maybe a helmet with sensors that can pick up on brain activity, the user would have full control of the UI that’s floating around him or her. The sky was the limit. I wanted to take advantage of the pieces moving forward to be focused and the rest of the UI being blurred out. The user will be able to dismiss options and bring up others by a swipe of their hand or by using their brain nerves. Little did we know that we were working for a tech company in the Silicon Valley that was developing something similar to the concept of the Google Glass and the Microsoft Holo Lens.
Nike Color Dry
Color dying is a technique that actually saves the world by reducing the water used in dying clothing to zero. Dry pigment is baked into the fibers of fabric through heat and pressure, creating the most brilliant, evenly spread color across the entire roll of fabric. Nike coined this process “Colordry”. Nike’s saving the world one jersey at a time… and they’re looking pretty good while they do it.
Royale wanted me to design supporting frames for this piece. I did several tests on how the "mote" would explode unto the fabric surface.
