Rimini Street is a leading independent provider of premium enterprise support service. They recently undertook a brand refresh, with the intent to better communicate with the technology driven industry they serve, and a way to utilize the 'street' in their name.
A complete styleguide overhaul was needed. The logo was updated, a new 'street' graphic integration was introduced, a new catalogue of photography was brought in, and new icons and motion graphics were developed to give a unified and strong presence to the brand. Everything from print, digital, video, and physical branding now has a modern, sleek, and clearly identifiable Rimini Street look.

Wanting to establish their thought leadership position, Genpact needed a new way to get their content into the hands of their audience. The solution was a news delivery app that was both easy for the publishing team to use and beautiful for the end user to experience.
A custom CMS ensured publishers could easily enter and edit images, titles, copy, and tags. The app would automatically organize and display the content to users around the world through a beautiful UX that featured personalization filters, reading lists, and built-in sharing.
In addition to the app, a web-based version was built into genpact.com, giving their website a new level of user interaction and reaching an even broader audience, all controlled by one CMS.

Fresh off the press, both Generating Impact and Lean Digital campaigns needed proper video support.
For Generating Impact, the goal was to capture the scale and influence Genpact has on business. This was achieved through a visual narrative that spans typographic animations, 3D cities, and abstract illustrations brought to life.
Lean Digital needed to quickly explain the campaign, blending the distinctive yellow highlighted black text style of the ads with minimal graphics, and introducing the blinking digital cursor to guide the viewers along.

Xlear, an all natural nose spray, needed a way to get consumers to think of spraying their nose as a daily cleansing routine akin to washing their hands. "Go Wash Your Nose" is the campaign solution. Using clean, bright portraits of people sneezing with big, bold text rounds out a very funny and compelling campaign look that drives the idea home.

Rainforest Trust helps protect threatened tropical forests and endangered wildlife. Their most recent campaign takes a fun and witty approach to attracting donations as opposed to the usual somber scare-tactics. These ads called viewers to "buy" the endangered land, using typical newspaper real estate marketing language like "truly a piece of tropical paradise!" and "won't last long!"
To reenforce this idea, the ads were written to look like newspaper ads, and were "ripped out" and placed on top of photography depicting these exotic locations. The campaign ran in print, digital, and OOH around the country.

PEP is a New York State initiative who's objective is to place individuals with developmental disabilities into people's homes to be cared for and supported. The launch of the initiative was carried out with a 2 part campaign that ran on TV, Radio, and OOH print all around New York City, and also included a pop-up shop for potential caregivers to visit and ask questions.
Stunning black and white photography (taken of actual caregivers and individuals with developmental disabilities) forms the foundation of the campaign's look, with very little color or other graphical elements to distract from the emotional impact.

After introducing the "Generating Impact" campaign, Genpact needed an overhaul of graphic elements that were interesting, colorful, and useful across many different mediums. The solution was to create a catalogue of branded graphics based off of the industries and solutions Genpact works with.
Over 25 graphics were made and applied in all types of spaces; from backgrounds of digital banners - to focal points of print ads - to the giant art installations we placed throughout their office building.

ACE Group was a global provider of insurance with products covering everything from property and casualty to health and life. Spanning several years and several campaigns, their branding needed supervision and direction to maintain it's recognition and integrity across every medium, across the globe.
"Insuring Progress" was a campaign that positioned ACE as a flexible, adaptive, and capable partner that attracted future-focused companies with big, interesting, and complex to insure ideas. The 3-year campaign became more than just an advertising idea, it became the mantra of the company. "ACE Insured" was the natural evolution of Insuring Progress. It allowed ACE to explain the deeper meaning of what it meant to be insured by ACE.
Creative for ACE ranged from print, digital, and event based OOH; and sometimes required global coordination for art direction to ensure brand consistency around the world.

While most people probably have an OXO product in their kitchen, they may not be aware of the brand. The "Love, OXO" campaign allowed OXO to showcase its everyday items in love letters to consumers. These letters were built as rich animated banner ads, over 20 in total in multiple sizes.

Cirrus knows that college graduates love their alma mater, and that those with a home gym might want to use the same equipment the athletes at their school use. They teamed up with the NCAA and several home fitness equipment manufacturers to bring that idea to life.
To make the products look like they came from the same place the schools source, they needed a unique approach to product design and packaging. The solution was to create something that had that "strait from the warehouse" look, while also incorporating sports imagery and school colors. A stripped-down template based foundation made it easy for brands to pop in their logo and colors, and the grittiness of the packaging appealed to those die-hard fitness freaks.

Having a wedding in the desert in Arizona, with guests coming from all around the country, it was important for my collateral to capture the atmosphere we were hoping to deliver - without giving too much away.
That vision was of open skies with the occasional mountain range, warm pinks and oranges, and hand-written typography for an elegant, personal touch.

Clip Radio allows radio listeners to "clip" songs played on the radio using their smartphones - and in turn receive free things like coupons, free song downloads, and contest entries. This new way of interacting with the radio needed an introduction to the market. "I Got It On the Radio" became an advertising campaign that ran in Portland and San Diego with posters, billboards, train wraps and radio spots.
The campaign called for a redesign of the brand. A new logo, sleek black colors, refaced UI, and a graphic illustrations of the free items you receive while "clipping" were all a part of the campaign launch.
