Experiential Design Projects

Whole Foods

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, sc

South Carolina has amazing folk art and when I worked in baseball, in the Carolina League, I fell in love with the south in a million ways. The art nature and people infiltrated everything I think, feel and consequently design. When Whole Foods Market was open for a designer...

Staywell

Eagan, mn

In 2012 I began designing this fifth release portal application for StayWell. The project was to complete a full UX analysis and redesign the UI with the findings. The former portal was a waterfall of years of changes and updates that had become unmanageable so we started from scratch...

 

Bintsley Wedding

Red wing, mn

Wedding invite for for Rebecca and Daniel Bentley. Lazer Cut in Minneapolis at Feyereisen Studios.

Sun Country Airlines

Minneapolis, mn

I designed the 25th Anniversary Logo for the well-loved Minnesota based Airline.  I also tended the brand and created many print, web and email campaigns between 2006 and 2007. It was my very first full time design job!

Whole Foods Market, Hilton Head Island, SC

 

South Carolina has amazing folk art and the art nature and people of the South infiltrate everything I think, feel and consequently design. When I worked in baseball, in the Carolina League, I fell in love with the south in a million ways. So, when Whole Foods was seeking a designer for a new store in Hilton Head Island, I was offered the opportunity to create the environment.

 

 

Comedy, New York City, NY

I've spent an indespesible block of the last decade working in NYC. Most of that precious time was spent working with comedians. Some are good friends, some are indefinable and all are amazing people.


Staywell, St.Paul, MN

In 2012 I began designing this fifth release portal application for StayWell. The project was to complete a full UX analysis and redesign the UI with the findings. The former portal was a waterfall of years of changes and updates that had become unmanageable so we started from scratch.

Sun Country Airlines

For the first two years after college, I tended the Sun Country Airlines brand.

Brainy Toys, Roseville, MN

I spent a thrilling summer at the brainy toy company Mindware.

Wedding, Red Wing, MN

When my friends Bitsy and Dan got married it was a tremendous honor to make the invite for their big day. Then, the whole wedding party boarded a riverboat in downtown Red Wing for a cruise up the river to Harriet Island in downtown St.Paul. By the end it felt like one of the finest days in my own life - so I was thrilled to be so honored as to ring the dinner bell with these invites.

Once asking a friend for advice; I was told - "Don't put things into the world that you don't think belong in the world." The trick with that advice, is that it begs the question...

"What do you think belongs in the world?"
