SF Environment had a story to tell.

They needed a half page ad for an industry publication. In it, the Renewable Energy team wanted to highlight a useful tool available to residents of San Francisco, the SF Energy Map.

The SF Energy Map is a one-stop shop for information on how to install solar and wind in San Franciso.

Use the tool to:
• See all the solar/wind installations in your neighborhood
• Calculate your unique energy potential
• Find incentives and installers
• See how much you can save!

design project, We Compost

The SF Environment Zero Waste team had a story to tell.

What does a coffee filter have to do with wine? It might seem to be non sequitur at first glance but we did want to get your attention by inviting that question. Upon a closer look the story is revealed: Your food scraps and discarded paper become the compost that is used in the vineyards of the Bay Area, and wonderful wine is the product of that cycle.

San Francisco has some of the purest compost around and it’s because of our broad public participation rates. We created this campaign to remind everyone they can play a part in the city’s Zero Waste success story. Separate your unconsumed food and send it back to the earth to grow more food.

Use the green bin.

Here are some more variations on that theme, these designs were published in the San Francisco neighborhood newspaper, the Richmond Review.

…there’s always a little thrill when you see your design out in the world. And it’s especially gratifying when you know your design has the potential to make some positive impact. Our campaign focused on a neighborhood in San Francisco, the Richmond, with the aim to remind people why composting is such a simple and yet incredible idea. Check out our website to find out more about composting, and all the benefits that derive from doing it. Use the green bin!

work for 23andMe, retouching stills for Muhammad Ali video, “Give Me Your Hand”

I am so proud to have been part of this incredible project. Genetic research company 23andMe is taking the fight against Parkinson’s Disease to a new level, and have partnered with none other than Muhammad Ali and his wife Lonnie, to do it. You’ll find an inspirational video after the jump. For this video, I created the vintage effects on all of the still photos. My colleague and friend Elliott Kennerson wrote, filmed and directed the work. It’s a beautiful piece, and I encourage you to view it. And if you’re so moved, I encourage you to find out how you can get involved in the fight against Parkinson’s Disease, as well.

a piece of cake. . .

After way too long, my friend C and I finally caught up yesterday, over a drink. I don’t know where time has gone… and why it goes by so quickly! Having spent so much quality time together during school, talking art, animation and life, I really relished reconnecting with him. He’s an amazing artist and a great guy.  The good feeling of that visit lingered for the rest of the night, and I found myself looking at pictures that I drew in school.  C was right, looking at those old drawings reconnected me to the art student I was when I created them and I feel a renewed creative feeling, a motivation to sketch that I haven’t felt in a while.

Here’s a sequence of drawings that I did in graduate school as development work for a story I devised, one that became a storyboard for my final project. The characters I created are a family of mice who live in the walls of a supermarket.  Getting a a piece of cake for a birthday party turns out to be an ordeal for them but I assure you, everything works out fine in the end!
