BASEBALL FACTORY

My partnership with Baseball Factory afforded me the opportunity to create and maintain their 2016 and 2017 brand initiatives. I fostered a close client relationship with their team and was charged with the ideation of all brand assets, which drew upon my expertise in typography, iconography, color theory, and imagery. I incorporated this knowledge into every production piece I created in order to engage their athletes, coaches, and parents. By utilizing both print and digital media, I assisted with marketing efforts to boost attendance, participation, and support for the many events Factory Athletics holds across the country.

UNDER ARMOUR

While working at Under Armour, I gained invaluable experience in brand identity and integrity as part of their Global Retail Marketing team. As a billion dollar corporation, with constant advertising at a lightning pace, they required my design skills to help maintain and promote the brand through the creation of hundreds of graphical components for in-store apparel fixtures and displays. The majority of my design work not only showcased the attire displayed for sale in stores worldwide, but also strategically marketed the emerging and innovative technologies of this distinguished brand.

PACERS RUNNING

As Art Director for the Baltimore studio, Vector Garage, I had the opportunity to touch many local and national brands. One of the most prestegious local companies was Pacers Running. As part of the Vector Garage team, I had the pleasure of producing creative assets for over a dozen race events held in Virginia and Washington DC throughout the year. I was responsible for much of the art production required to promote these events, by assisting in the creation of race bibs, apparel, route maps, and e-mail correspondence.

STANLEY BLACK & DECKER

During my time working for this world-leading tool manufacturer I broadened my design techniques and gained a firm understanding of corporate packaging design and illustration. Working primarily with the DeWalt brand, I was tasked with creating detailed, technical powertool illustrations and meticulous packaging artwork. Each design was mocked up and presented as a prototype for internal, proof-of-concept approval, prior to printing and distribution.
