Low On Cards… To Change, or stay the same?

My box of 500 Taste of Ink business cards are nearing an end! They lasted me over 3 years! So now I’m forced to decide if I should update my business cards or leave them exactly the same… These have worked so well for me, but part of me feels hollow inside for not taking the opportunity to do something different! Help!

WMB 3D Issue #2, Further Designed

A first handshake can sometimes be awkward.. Too limp, too strong, missing completely, or bumping a fist to an open handshake? But the second time around, BAM! you got it right on the money. That’s how I feel about the second issue of WMB 3D. Not to downplay the 1st issue, the success was more than we could have expected. But personally I knew that the initial magazine was a foundation and wanted to build upon that foundation with less attention to continuity, and more attention to branching out… not to mention the learning curve of designing in 3D was beginning to flatten.

Reinvent the Résumé

Every now and then when applying for any type of job, I get a request for a résumé. Nothing extraordinary there. But in the creative field, a résumé better be more than a white sheet of Times New Roman puked out in Microsoft Word. After all I’d be competing against other designers, why not let that first knock on the door be a loud colorful one?

Urban Racer Formula D Official Fan Guide

Shortly after finishing up a shoot in the Malibu canyons I get a call from Jackie Ling, Director of Urban Racer. He wanted me to throw together this year’s Official Formula Drift fan guide. Heck ya! I love drifting, and my previous experience working within the magazine industry made me an obvious fit. The deadline was super tight, but after a hurricane of emails, pdfs, and corrections, this spot-uv’d, sleek looking fan guide was approved and ready in less than 5 days.

Down to Earth – Olly Howe

Introducing Olly Howe. Easily one of the best designers I have ever come across. And not to stroke my ego too much, but that is a huge compliment. So you can imagine my thoughts when Olly emailed me asking to collaborate with one of my latest photoshoots. Very very very very humbling.

New logo, new biz cards

I was 2 seconds away from buying new business cards a few weeks ago, but I thought my old logo looked a little dated. I wanted something more simple and professional looking. You know, something sophisticated like me! (right). So I came up with this little circle logo, chopped up to look like “CD”. Matte black finish, spot-UV coating on both sides, and a white “signature box” to jot down misc notes. I think they came out pretty cool 🙂 If you’re lucky enough, maybe you’ll get one of my highly exclusive signed 1 of 500 business cards.
