UX Design  (Illustrator, Photoshop, Lightroom)  Description: This micro-website design is apart of a creative concept for The Ritz Carlton called RISE. Collectively we decided to  utilize two methods of experience based executions to actively create a brand touch point. However, this execution was built around the idea of achievement. The site serves to inspire & engage the millennial audience by producing branded content celebrating changers across disciplines such as enterprise, culture, education, and philanthropy. The mockup features localized weather and time for New York City as well as achievers like Vashtie Kola (director, designer), Mazdack Rassi (owner milk studios), and Johnathan Mannion (photographer). Mixing individuals based in New York City with globally recognized people and organizations like Elon Musk and Dr's Without Borders ensures relevancy. A unique opportunity is also using this execution of RISE to cover employees of The Ritz Carlton making strides of excellence as well.  Date: March 2015

Product Design for Wavy Kickz Ad Campaign ( Illustrator, Photoshop)  Description: To support rebranding of Wavy Kickz in Richmond, our group lasercut keychains of classic Nike silhouettes that were easily recognizable . A new logo (pictured in the app above), an interior re-design of the store, and limited run Wavy Kickz t-shirts in VCU colors round out the executions. Strategically dispersed during big rivalry games and March Maddness, the shirts would gain high visibility that would generate buzz due to the store's proximity to the heart of the VCU campus.   AD: Ryan Arnett CD: Karl Giles  Date: December 2014
