Harley-Davidson

an introduction to what riders have known for 117 years: a motorcycle is the full-throttle antidote for the modern condtion. thus, making the hog one of the original wellness tools.












alongside film, we created a new brand identity that channels all the elements of a ride on a harley: viseral motion, intimate reflection, snippets of the world, and the calm that comes with seeing things in a blur.

































      













       

   






to challenge the stereotypes of hog owners, we captured portraits of real  riders in a way to portray the heightened state of mind.

Pinterest

Everything you see on the Internet is dictated by an algorithm. You’re served the things you know and are expected to like.

On Pinterest, the unexpected finds you. The more you explore, the more you discover. The more you discover, the deeper you go. And somewhere along way you just might surprise yourself.














we also created a series of short films to introducethe multi-phaseted world of Pinterest.

Facebook Inc.

two films for facebok to give support and encouragement to those in need during the global health crisis. 









Small businesses are the beating heart of America. If things don’t change, almost half of them could close within three months. We launched “Street Spirit” - accompanied by a Texas blues instrumental of ‘I Will Survive’,  to show that buying from Austin’s small is buying into the vibrant soul of the city.












By Mother’s Day, 2020, more than half a million babies were born under quarantine. With the help of a narrator born during a pandemic 100 years ago, Facebook wanted to show support for new mothers facing the most difficult and isolating of circumstances.

Dos Equis

“Keep It Interesante” is the evolution of one of the most iconic pieces of advertising that redefines what it means to be "interesting" and involves a ton of bullshit (or as we call it, “interesante”)
