Social.  I see more and more requests for design and animation, i.e. motion graphics, in a social media context, that can function as both GIFs and embedded video, so I decided to put various #social projects I've done, in one place.

The Wedding Present.  I always enjoy designing and animating music related social media content and I also wanted to exhibit that I really do know how to make those animation curves produce smooth, elegant, animation.  You could say this was "inspired" from a another project of mine, that I liked so much, I decided to adapt into a template of sorts.  That said, this was a quick personal project to support the 2018 Wedding Present tour.  I'm a huge, long time fan of Mr. David Gedge.

Role: Concept, Art Direction, Design, 2d / 2.5d Animation, Photography.

#OITNB.  Animated GIFs for the Orange Is The New Black social media campaign.  My good friends at Heavenspot brought me on board to animate a type design and two illustrations for the OITNB social media campaign.  Chevon Hicks designed the type layout and Eric Lamb provided the illustrations.  I had a really great time working with Chevon and Eric on this project. The animations were posted as GIFs on the OITNB social accounts.

Circles.  More music.  Circles is my music, style, art and culture brand for blogging and hosting club nights.  Something a little outside the world of broadcast television and streaming, but a good example of how I can apply my skills to music and event promotion across digital platforms.
