NRDC’s “Energy Efficiency at Home”

I recently developed a simple interactive Flash piece for the NRDC showing energy consumption in the home. Most of the artwork came from a stock vector that they had sent me, and I just modified it for their needs. I did create a few items, the video game system for example.

Video Player for SteveMaddenMusic.com

Recently I designed the video player (and some general interface work) for the existing SteveMaddenMusic.com site. The project was done with a couple of good friends of mine Omar and Ben. I did the design work, they handled everything else.

I just recently finished a programmatically animated (I admit that I like typing that) advertising spotlight for Promotions.com. Basically they make all types of banner and interactive advertisements for their clients’ websites, and they wanted a quick animated piece to show off all of them.

Flash Site for Chandler Chicco Agency Advertising

CCA Advertising web site

Design and Art Direction by Carolyn Gargano.
Animation and Development by me!

Back in October & November (2007), I worked on an all-Flash site for Chandler Chicco Agency Advertising. I technically worked as a freelancer for the supercool kats at ‘Nition Design, but I worked solely with the folks at CCA Advertising. It was about a 2 month project and unfortunately during that period, CCA Advertising was dissolved and the project was scrapped. So what we have here is about a 90% finished product. It has some bugs and it is a bit clunky in spots, but I still think it shows some of my skills in the areas of animation and even coding. So there ya go.

Future Defunct: my Kenzo Minami homage/rip-off

In 2003 (like most graphic design nerds) I became obsessed with Kenzo Minami’s work. His gratuitously excessive vector designs are totally my bag. So I wanted to see what I could come up with while attempting his style of piece. I remember it took a good while to complete, but it was still a lot of fun. It was all created in Flash, because I really wanted to animate it eventually. There is just never enough time.

Check out his site, and be sure to keep a towel close by to wipe up your drool.

S6 Insignia and remorse for Export Controlled portfolio pieces

So for the past 2 years I have worked as a Multimedia Specialist for RTI International in the Digital Solutions department. The job was really spectacular, I worked with a super-talented team of folks. In those 2 years, we worked on basically 3 projects (to give you an idea of the scope of the projects).

Some of my tasks included Graphic User Interface design, simulating software apps and operating systems with Flash, prepping Flash components to function inside the 3D simulation environment, creating 2D mock-ups of potential tools within the sim, as well as tons of various graphic design tasks.

The down side: all of that work was very protected government property. So don’t expect to ever see anything here. Just trust me it was the best professional work of my life, and you DEFINITELY want to hire me full-time based upon that. =)

So anyway, here is one of only a couple of things that I can show off (and even this may bring about a C&D letter). This is a vector drawing of the S6 Signal Corps insignia created for RTI International.

This was created in Flash, because it is to later be used in a Flash environment. For extra fun (and because I desire your pity), below are the two source images that I used to make my version.
