How A Car Engine Works

Did you know that your car will take in 20,000 cubic feet of air to burn 20 gallons of fuel? That’s the equivalent of a 2,500 sq. ft. house!

If your only experience with a car engine’s inner workings is “How much is that going to cost to fix?” this graphic is for you! Car engines are astoundingly awesome mechanical wonders. It’s time you learned more about the magic under the hood!

Ugly Betty site for Disney*ABC

This project went very smoothly. The fine folks at Disney*ABC said “fashion mag” style, and the design pretty much designed itself.

iammerrick-logo

iammerrick: Identity & Website

This identity (logo, website) was designed for Merrick. He’s a hip programmer that stays abreast of an ever-changing industry. We wanted something scalable, responsive, and minimal. He was very happy with the result, and I enjoyed the level of trust and creative freedom I was granted.

Kelley Blue Book’s “2012 Best Resale Value” Awards

I’ve seen a lot of automotive peripherals using the ribbon motif. I think it works really well for that sharp, classy “new car” feel. Combine that with the award show content of this graphic and we have a winner!

Sporting Stats

Just wanted to experiment with that 60′s western type aesthetic. Even better, since Sports Illustrated has been using Knockout (or Champion) from Hoefler for a long time. Knockout is a woodcut, western style typeface which I used here among other typefaces.
