Meet Maya and Alison! I had a great time diving into the world of students and educators, working remotely with the New York-based Branching Minds team to craft a story relevant to an audience of parents and educators.

I employed the full creative process - from script editing, storyboarding, and character sketches to the completed design, animation, and audio editing - to develop a playful design language and cast of characters consistent with their modern brand.

The assignment: conjure a badass illustration of how businesses can run faster and IT operations can be more streamlined with the right storage.

The result: my biggest solo production to date (I served as lead designer, animator, and audio editor), rock'n roll, motorcycles...
oh, and the latest generation of Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance, the ZS3 Series.

Storyboards

An excellent exercise in complete content creation and design process (from concept through production), this video was my undergraduate senior thesis project as a Digital Design major in the college of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) at the University of Cincinnati.

My goal was to alter the perception of exercise: mainly, that simple, daily lifestyle choices outside of a typical fitness program can add up to great benefits over time. This video was one proposed aspect of an educational YMCA campaign that featured educational materials in YMCA lobbies. The Clifton Melrose Branch in Cincinnati, OH was used as a case study.

SAP: CUSTOM BUILT

Assistant Design

Challenged by a client freshly rebranded and a timeframe of less than two weeks, this project was a collaboration of three. I served as Lead Animator, bringing storyboards to life and making necessary changes along the way.

SOLARIS: 20th ANNIVERSARY

[ studio ] - CPR
[ client ] - Oracle

[ role ] - Lead Animator
Assistant Designer

This video is first of two completed in an insanely rushed 3-week deadline (yep, that's all we had for both videos). Let's back up: Oracle came to CPR in total desperation to deliver two eye-popping, 3-minute+ animations to be played as show openers for Oracle SPARC's 25th Anniversary and Oracle Solaris' 20th Anniversary events... not exactly a flexible deadline.

As lead animator on the job, I burnt many a midnight candle and had dreams of After Effects... but had a blast watching the recorded reactions of the event crowd a few days after delivery. Not before a couple days of sleep, that is.

SPARC: 25th ANNIVERSARY

[ studio ] - CPR
[ client ] - Oracle

[ role ] - Lead Animator
Assistant Designer

Second of two videos completed in only 3 weeks, this animation opened the Oracle SPARC 25th Anniversary event in November 2012.

To cut time, a team of two separated design and animation - I served as lead animator, living and breathing After Effects for a solid week... but watching the recorded reactions of the event crowd a few days after delivery was so worth it.

Animated pitch for the University of Cincinnati's Digital Design DAAPWorks senior show branding identity (Spring 2011). The branding, design, and concept were created within a team of 7 other classmates.

The "We Are" concept speaks to the diversity of the Digital Design major, and the individuals that put a face behind the broad spectrum of all that is digital design.
