CCAD Possibilities: this grad's illustrations bring brands to life
Tell us about your career path.
I started in St. Louis, a great smaller city to start making a name for myself. I was able to take on bigger clients here and build my portfolio before moving to New York.
What was it like designing art for a pasta restaurant?
We were given the task of completely branding the restaurant — and it was a huge undertaking. I had to really think about how my illustrations would work inside the restaurant space as well as on print materials.
What has been your biggest success so far?
Shake Shack has been my highest-profile project. I do wall murals and art installations inside their restaurants, and I’ve done illustrations for totes and other items.
What are you working on now? And what’s your next project?
I’m working with Much Creative on branding a new brewery, Provincetown Brewery in Massachusetts. I tend to take whatever comes my way. I’ve been doing a lot of work with children’s books, as well.
