WordPress 5.0 Announcement video

To introduce a big milestone in WordPress history, I’ve creative directed this short animated film, along with my colleagues, Matias Ventura and Josepha Haden Chomphosy, to celebrate the release of WordPress 5.0. It’s a huge deal in that the brand new block editor is included with this new release.

Working with the agency Thinkmojo, we created this jazzy film.

Mister Washington

I worked with my clients to create a brand new coffee shop branding concept — Mister Washington. It uses a flag concept that pays homage to its Georgetown origins. The concept was unused.

Nickelodeon SDCC Voice Over Experience

Creative Direction, Design, Motion

Nickelodeon came to us with an idea of wanting to do something special at their booth for the San Diego Comic Con 2014. They wanted fans to be able to record voiceover for their favorite Nick cartoon and share the video to their friends via social networks. So our team put heads together and created a technology creative solution to make it happen.

To me, it was one of my favorite projects because it’s a one-of-a-kind experiential project. I got to be involved in the creative of all aspects of the project. On one hand, we had to design the motion graphics component of the karaoke videos, as well as the sharing output videos, all within the technological constraints with the dynamic rendering of the videos. On the other hand, we’re designing the whole user experience from the registration process, to the hardware setup in the booth recording experience, and the end result where participants browse and share their videos.

Throughout this 3-month project, we worked closely with the designers, developers, producers and Nickelodeon to make sure the overall creative strategy was on point. There were a lot of moving parts in the project, and it was truly a team effort all around that resulted in its success. 

Below is a case study video I put together at RED that showcases our experience. Enjoy!

Juice Ga

Creative + Art direction, Design

I was tasked to develop the identity of Juice Ga, a up-and-coming pressed juicery in Macau. The goal of the company is to create delicious juices from farm-fresh ingredients that’s good for your body.

I was fortunate to be involved very early on the concept, starting from the creation of the name, to concepts of the whole visual language of the brand. I helped to create a comprehensive identity system, including but not limited to the bottle packaging, marketing collaterals, business cards, and letterheads.
