Art Direction, Graphic Design and Motion Design
As a freelancer, I started at Spike mid-rebrand while marketing was making their appeal to a wider audience. After becoming staff, I had the pleasure of working on a brand refresh and then re-brand pushing Spike ever-forward toward a "general entertainment network". Now we are working on re-branding as Paramount, which will go further into high-end programming and scripted series.
In addition to designing and animating, I manage and streamline the promo graphics projects templates which streamline workflows and increase efficiency for the day-to-day.
Ink Master is one of the longest-running and most popular shows on Spike. As part of the Spike team, I am primarily the head designer for promos that go to air as well as working with creative directors, producers and editors on a wide range of tasks like color correction, compositing and creating digital content.
It's never a dull moment working on promos for this show. The bombastic Jon Taffer is the host and he keeps things interesting. I have the pleasure of art directing the videography and designing for elements regarding to promoting Bar Rescue on Spike and Internationally, as well as internationally.
