    uniE621 Demaryius Thomas, 88; NO LIMITS
    This T-shirt and sticker design honors Demaryius Thomas, a former wide receiver who played for the Denver Broncos. He could do amazing things on the field. His number was 88, which is appropriate as the 8, when rotated 90 degrees, forms the infinity symbol. #logo #graphicdesigner #designer #tshirtdesigner #stickerdesigner
    uniE621 LT; Lactate Threshold
    I designed this sticker for a local running store. An eccentric and playful way to represent the physiological process undergone when the body comes under stress; a phenomena runners know all too well. The negative space between the L and T form a raised hand with the number one signal. #logo #graphicdesigner #lactatethreshold
    uniE621 Authorised Neutral Athlete
    This project is a logo I imagined for an Authorised Neutral Athlete, A name given to Russian track and field athletes that were allowed to compete but not able to represent Russia as a result the 2014 doping scandal. #logo #graphicdesigner #designer
    uniE621 Dog Chases A Ball
    After the death of our families beloved dog, Bear, I made this illustration and design for stickers and t-shirts to honor the joy and love she brought us. #graphicdesigner #illustrator #designer #logo #cooltshirt
    uniE621 Wanderers Collective
    The Wanders Collective: A platform for people to share experiences, thoughts, joys and fears engendered while engaging in non-motorized activities and transportation, through writing, poetry, photographs, and art. This project exemplifies my preference for a minimal design aesthetic but with touches of the DYI ethos. I never want my designs or logos to come off as cold and unwelcoming. #logo #graphicdesigner #designer #branding
    uniE621 Book cover for Lolita by vladimir Nabokov
    This is a mock book cover for Lolita by vladimir Nabokov. This project exemplifies my preference for a minimal design aesthetic but with touches of the DYI ethos. I never want my designs or logos to come off as cold and unwelcoming. An outline of a woman's leg in a walking position. The the ambiguousness of wether she is walking toward or away from the man infatuated of her is left to the reader's imagination. #logo #graphicdesigner #designer #bookcoverdesigner
    uniE621 Book cover for Native Son by Richard Wright
    A mock book cover for Native Son by Richard Wright. This project exemplifies my preference for a minimal design aesthetic but with touches of the DYI ethos. I never want my designs or logos to come off as cold and unwelcoming. The title of the book, Native Son, is drowned in a deluge of white as all that is of color is engulfed. The cascading white over the dark background forms a skull. #logo #graphicdesigner #illustrator #designer #bookcover #bookcoverdesign
    uniE621 Book cover for the Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison.
    This is a mock book cover for the Invisible man by Ralph Ellison. This project exemplifies my preference for a minimal design aesthetic but with touches of the DYI ethos. I never want my designs or logos to come off as cold and unwelcoming. Here is a man, hands up, and running into a blood red background as he is slowly being engulfed by the "whiteness" of his world. #logo #graphicdesigner #designer #bookcover #bookcoverdesign
    uniE621 The Sisyphus Project;
    The Sisyphus Project: An art project and show of support for frontline workers and those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In this conceptual art piece I wore a protective mask and carried a rock for 122 days. I covered a distance of over eight miles. I filmed each session using a tripod and an iphone. You can see them here. https://www.twine.net/signin #graphicdesigner #logo #designer #filmmaker #branding
    uniE621 Blue Bear Collective; Black Lives matter
    Blue Bear Collective is an arts organization I created with the purpose of giving away art to engender joy, happiness and togetherness. This logo made for stickers and t-shirts shows support for the Black Lives Matter movement. https://www.twine.net/signin #logo #graphicdesigner #designer #illustrator
    uniE621 Uncle Sam; I WANT YOU TO WEAR A MASK!
    Poster and t-shirt design of Uncle Sam wearing a mask with the caption, I Want You To wear A Mask, for businesses to put in their store front windows and doors and individuals looking for a fun way to encourage people to wear a mask for the protection of themselves and others during the COVID-19 pandemic. #logo #graphicdesigner #designer #posterdesigner
