Tim Burton at the MoMA


MoMA

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) approached Big Spaceship to create an online kiosk experience that would showcase the wide spectrum of Tim Burton’s artwork. Techniques used in the making of this website were inspired by Tim Burton’s earlier stop motion films. With a hands-on approach, we constructed model staircases with foam board and conducted stop-motion tests. In the final product, the navigational framework for the site was all hand drawn and animated frame by frame. The sum of these techniques assisted us in capturing Tim Burtons’ dark and whimsical aesthetic.

YTMND

I felt honored when my friend Max Goldberg, founder of YTMND, asked me to redesign his site. I have to admit, I was a tad nervous taking on the challenge of trying to satisfy YTMND’s devout following. I was warned that no matter what I did, everyone was going to hate on it. It’s the nature of the beast. So, I did what anyone would do, I intensionally tried to design the most obnoxious site. I had fun with this project, in spite of the insane response.

FITC, Tokyo 2009


Future. Innovation. Technology. Creativity

I was asked by Big Spaceship to create artwork for FITC Tokyo 2009. I was so excited to take on this project. I have always been fascinated with the Harajuku culture. So, I decided to illustrate a woman sitting a japanese garden of draped in lace and dangling pearls. This art piece was used for signage, brochures, conference badges, online promotions, etc.

Alienware wanted to create a promotional site for the arrival of their M17x laptop. We created a 3D animated celestial experience. Alienware’s all knowing technology detects your location using your IP address, visually connecting your whereabouts on the planet earth to simulate your abduction aboard the spacecraft. Once aboard the ship, you can explore tech specs, design and special features of the most powerful 17″ laptop in the universe.

Multi-player game to promote the Terminator Salvation movie. I was thrilled to be working with such a large collaboration of talented artists, designers, and 3D motion graphic artists, sound designers, and developers to create a rich gaming experience. I designed the game board art, creating a post apocalyptic world for players to battle each other.
