Hello Mr. WiedeXXX and Mr. XXXennedy!
I'm currently an art director at Grey New York where I work on Tums and Breathe Right. Before that I went to every state in America for a Kickstarter project. And before that I freelanced at Leo Burnett New York, where I found out I was really good at drawing animals. And around all that, I'm working on different products for my soon-to-open online store.
These are some ads, projects and animals drawings I've created.
ADS I'VE MADE
In 2017, at the beginning of a new political climate, AARP needed a new campaign to help Americans remember AARP's humble beginnings and what they stand for.
Panadol Cold and Flu Commercials
A couple commercials for Panadol Cold & Flu that ran East and South Asia and the Middle East.
PROJECTS I'VE DONE
In 2013, I went on a Kickstarter-funded, 50-state, 99-day road trip to learn why locals called their state home. I put all my learnings and photographs together to make a bunch of posters, postcards and a couple books.
Below is the video of the Kickstarter video, project video and sample spreads from the book.
You can view the entire journey at /home or if you accidentally go to my 404 page.
Ego's Deck Dream Instagram
Every day from June 18, 2016, to June 18, 2017, I imagined what my dog dreams of what was beyond her deck's walls. Below are some of my favorites.
Rockets Space Patches
I remember watching the Rockets win their first championship with my dad in 1994, because we had to order Pay-Per-View and my mom ordered us pizza and that was a huge deal. I've been a fan ever since and to celebrate their 50 seasons, I designed nine space patches for their nine hallmark seasons (because I also love NASA).
New York City Skyline Index
After my roommates and I moved to our apartment, we'd have to guests over, look out from Ego's Deck, and ask, "What building is that?" Though I'm usually ok with saying "I don't know," I don't like being a bad host with zero knowledge of what exactly we're looking at. I mean, I didn't minor in art history to not be able to tell the difference between Monet and Manet.
I made this poster and labeled it with notable buildings, so now people will stop asking whether that building over there is the Empire State of Chrysler.
I needed a way to keep detailed notes on my projects, but my regular notebook wouldn't suffice. Inspired by dentists' charts and notes (I used to be a dental assistant), I made my own using some leftover patterns I painted
In it, I can keep track of the project's color palettes and brushes, etc. This way, whenever I open up the Photoshop file at a later date, I'll know why I have so many inexplicable layers.
Flag of the World Pop-Up Book
In 2010, I was immobile from an ACL tear, so I watched a lot of World Cup and noticed how there were overlaps in flag designs. So I made this pop-up book to make sense of it all while all my friends played soccer.
The Sports Calendar
I wanted to know when I could expect to tune back into SportsCenter after baseball season was over, so I designed this chart and made it into a clock that takes a year to make one full revolution.
Chendra and the Wild Quest
The Oregon Zoo once tweeted about their elephant, Chendra, roaming the grounds to visit the different animals and got to meet Gus, the sea lion. A book editor then tweeted that she wanted a kid's book about this ASAP so I took a few days and put this together.
Store Products (A Work in Progress)
Line Star State: Deep in the Heart Hat
Every year, I try to redesign the Texas flag for Texas Independence Day, and this year, I liked the message of love coming from the heart of Texas and decided to put it on a hat.
Love Yourself Shirts
Once during an in-office happy hour, I doodled something for a coworker that curled around because it was on receipt paper and I decided to turn it into a t-shirt cause I thought it'd be super funny.
Feel free to look at more work or see my /latest projects on the blog.

P.S. I once visited WK's website and both Wieden and Kennedy said to "hire wrong."
If that Wiedenism is true, I think that's me.
