NYU Cancer Institute 2010/2011 Annual Review
Through illustrations, six seemingly unrelated things were connected through the NYU Cancer Institute, highlighting specific breakthroughs and patient stories. I was the lead Art Director and illustrator for this book, which included concept strategy, illustration, photo art direction, design and client engagement.
Havas wanted to create an event for the office to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. I helped them design and organize a scavenger hunt for bars around New York and Boston. There were 25 clues in each city, each leading to different bars. Employees could download the app, form teams, find the bars, and earn points against their opponents. The winners with the most points at the end won a night out of bowling at the Brooklyn Bowl. Check out the website here
Whilst is a design agency in Singapore. I partnered with NY-based designer, Natashia Tjandra, to create a bespoke stationary system using perforated sheets, which allowed for a modular system. This easily transformed a single A4 sheet into a notecard, CD holder and a comment slip. An accompanying portfolio site was also created for them, which can be viewed here.

Blacktail Brewery is a concept project for a small microbrewery based in Dillon, Montana. The owners had purchased an old bowling alley as a place to start their business, and needed an identity and packaging that differentiated themselves from the rest of the other microbrews. A bowling ball and pins hint to the microbrews' roots, while a bespoke blackletter logotype helps them stand out from other beers. The pastel color palette also works well in contrast to the hard-edged blackletter logotype. The bottles are painted in four different colors, which give them an opaque quality. This is done to resemble high-gloss bowling pins found in bowling alleys.
The Markers is a luxury condo development in Grove Isle, Miami. Quiet and secluded, The Markers is an island oasis away from the hustle of downtown Miami

Drizly is an alcohol delivery app that serves more than 10 cities nationwide. With the launch of a new brand on the horizon, they needed a fresh way to excite their customers. I lead a small team to help Drizly redefine the purchase experience for their customers. Through research, we discovered that there were two distinct shoppers that used the app. One was an active shopper, whose purchase experience was relatively quick. The other was the browser, who wanted to shop at a leisurely pace.
A recommendation engine that filtered results based on users' moods, helped people search for drinks in a fun and memorable way. The UI design and UX also aimed to make the shopping experience easy and quick, through clear labelling of categories and products. The end result was a concept prototype that helped Drizlys' internal teams move the app towards a better shopping experience. This project was done at Mobext. Download the app here
