Game Packaging Design
Secret of Mana

I loved the Secret of Mana game when I played it on the Super Nintendo system. What impressed me was the story of the game, the characters with unique skills, and the artwork of the original cover. Since the game has not been created for Nintendo Wii, I thought I would create a cover for the game!

Technical Illustration
I used Photoshop to illustrate the outer and inside layers of an IPod Nano and photographs of a real IPod Nano taken apart to create my technical illustration.

Sandwich view and front/back views

Product Design - Sponge Glove

A unique cleaning product that I came up with the concept for and then desgined the packaging for. I used a fifities pastel palette for color and shape.

I built my unique product using kitchen gloves, cutting shapes of sponge for the fingers and adhering all the parts.

Font Design
I am officially a typographer! Fontbook was used to set the typeface all the letters AND symbols. I created the letters by hand illustration and then illustrator to "livetrace" for the smooth edges. Titled: Forest Ranger.

Business logo design I created with hand-drawn Alpaca and the background using Photoshop blends. For a client with an Alpaca farm and business of selling Alpacas hair.

Phillips Soil
A sprouting plant makes a great logo for this soil company. The roots also suggest the "strength" of the company.

Fashion Illustration
Anna Sui Designs, I hand painted these using Photoshop and a real photograph of the models. I love fashion and the fun colors in the Anna Sui designs.

It is unique to find "art" in places we go everyday. I used Photoshop to place the pictures A-Z, can you find them?

Created this poster to visually communicate "What is communication in Hawai'i'" using images that the viewer could cognitively process the message easily.
