10th Avenue Productions

Chuck from 10th Avenue Productions contacted me about attempting a redesign for a website for their client. He had contacted other designers as well and was going to present our work together to the client, the design the client liked best got the gig. That was me. So I worked on an on-going freelance project for the Southwest Center for Law and Policy via 10th Avenue Productions. SWCLAP’s clients typically have dial-up connections and are from an older generation so my initial redesign isn’t going to be implemented entirely as it’s a bit too flashy for dial-up. Oh well. Here’s the redesigns I came up with for the win:



Optive Marketing

My father used to run a company called Optive Marketing. He dealt primarily with licensing, dealing with musicians and their marketing collateral i.e. t-shirts, posters, hats, etc. One day he acquired a license for The Kinks and needed a bunch of old T-shirt designs, that were created long before the advent of computer technology, re-created in vector format for scaling and printing. I recreated all the files in vector format.


Jarryd Schmidt is a friend of mine who moved to Los Angeles and started a promotion company called Ionfaction. I developed his brand identity to reflect the stylings of his specifications as well as the trends in promotional agencies at the time. This is what I came up with for his logo and business card:

SGA Group Inc.

After working with Graham Sones with Extreme Playgroundz, Graham brought me on as a freelancer to design his brand identity for SGA Group Inc. Working with Graham over a course of about a month we narrowed it down to something that would reflect professionalism, and maintain a color scheme relative to landscaping. Here is the revision process for his business card beginning to end:

Extreme Playgroundz

Extreme Playgroundz is a great idea. Now, it didn’t pay well (or at all) but it presented an opportunity to display my skills and be a part of something very, very cool. My buddy Jeff, a snowboarder, one day decided that the midwest had fallen very far behind when it came to board park design in comparison to resorts out west as well as out east.
