Buzz Food Service needed new packaging for their product line of specialty meats. A Charleston, WV staple since 1968, Buzz needed boxes that felt like they could be from days gone by, but with a design that was fresh enough for modern times.

Charleston Restaurant Week is a celebration of local cuisine, inviting residents and visitors to enjoy discounted, three-course meals at the finest establishments in town.
When Restaurant Week began in Charleston, I saw some of the early branding around town, and while the concept was brilliant, the visuals were lacking.

A logo, a few posters, some ticket designs and a few short videos later, I have the honor of being Charleston Restaurant Week's chief of design.
D.C. Lottery wanted a logo redesign while maintaining the equity it had built into its current visual identity. Maintaining existing colors and iconography I created a new, clean logo to refresh and update the brand.
As a Richmond, Virginia native, and Long and Foster Top Producer, Dawson Boyer knows real estate. I wanted to create a visual identity for Dawson that was clean, bold, and would help him stand out in a market with more than 4,000 Realtors.

“It's always a party at Mardi Gras,” and we wanted to spotlight the fun and excitement of a night at the casino. I concepted, directed, and shot a series of television spots for Mardi Gras Casino to encourage the viewer to “find your party.”
