CHECK OUT MY WORK BELOW!
EARTH, WIND, FIRE- NOW, THEN, & FOREVER
For this project, I had to redesign an album cover and I chose Earth, Wind & Fire's most recent work, Now, Then & Forever. During the process, I constructed vinyl designs, programs, souvenirs, etc.
FAITHFUL BEYOND THE TRENCHES
This digital image is inspired by the last few years of my athletic life as well as obstacles I faced in terms of family and faith. From suffering three major injuries that really put my career on a stressful hold, I really wanted to express my road to recovery.
This project was a rebranding for the NFL team, the Washington Football Team. As they continue to look for an identity, I wanted to give a potential concept and new name for the franchise, the Washington Flight.
