BAK TRAK MULTI-TOOL
Inspired by aesthetics from the popular film, Back to the Future, The packaging of this multi-tool was heavily concept-based. What if a time traveler had a multi-purpose tool? What kind of packaging would it come in? Paying homage to the film, the shape of the package is similar to that of the DeLorean Time Machine's flux capacitor, a device used in the film to travel through time. Everything is hand-cut and the tool itself was vacuum formed using a mold and a press.
Conceptual album cover art for 2 bands. A collaborative of photography and illustration. Flock Mentality: A punk rock band from Texas. Devilment: An alternative rock band from New Orleans, Louisiana.
BULLSPIT BEER PACKAGING
Inspired by the craft brewery aesthetic, Bullspit is a conceptual american pale ale. The name is derived from a more acceptable way of saying bullsh*t - a play on words. Aimed towards a male demographic and infusing humor with illustrative graphics, Bullspit captures the essence of enjoying a cold one while relaxing on a Saturday night with pals. Each label has a different bull depicted with a different name and characteristic. When lined up side-by-side, it appears as if all 6 bulls are at one bar. The koozie sleeves were created using my own heat press and would be utilized as p.o.s. (points of sale) or promotional items.
