Our Tarkett Global Flooring Solutions client asked us to help them design their new 10,000 sq ft permanent showroom space in the Merchandising Mart in Chicago. Not only did we help design the permanent space, we needed to develop an Event concept and design for the 2017 NeoCon tradeshow event. NeoCon is North America’s most important design exposition and conference for commercial interiors.
While at Icon, my team and I designed everything from the window signage, a "Serpentine" table, product displays, bags, video's, brochures, postcards, email blasts and a social media. For this event we also developed and launched a new Global Brand Messaging Campaign, a Sustainability Campaign, a 50th Anniversary Campaign for their Powerbond product line and various other marketing materials and tools.
One of the challenges with this massive space, that showcased most everything on the floor (being a flooring company), with several entrances and surrounded by glass, was to figure out how to help draw people into the space and lead them through the space. I came up with the idea to design a "Serpentine" table. It was used to display brochures, flooring samples, and other marketing materials but also it became a wayfinding system that helped lead people through-out the space.
Being surrounded by glass we needed a way to cover some of the windows without being intrusive. The 8 x 12 hardwood die-cut window displays were not only beautiful but were used to hold messaging and had video monitors built into the backs (interior space) to run our Video content that we created as well.
Overall it was an amazing opportunity my team and I. We—along with our client couldn't have been happier with the results.
This was an amazing project to work on. We did entire rebrand for CHOA. Everything from the logo design, photography, design, television, social media, brand standards, signage, print, etc., were done over the course of two years.
"Dedicated to All Better" Campaign
CHOA wanted to remind parents that Children’s is the best place to take kids for those common things, like stitches or broken bones. We came to these simple truths, kids do…unwise things. Kids get hurt. Kids need special care. And there is only one place in Atlanta can deliver it, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

Kimberly-Clark Healthy Schools Project
Kimberly-Clark asked us to help them come up with ways to make schools healthier places for kids, teachers and administrators. We came up with the idea that anyone can help kids be more "Awesome". The microsite we created along with the support of print, web banners, video and social media were all intended to help empower school administrators to take control of the germs in their schools.

I worked on the countdown and launch of Chick-fil-A’s new digital app—Chick-fil-A One. Chick-fil-A not only wanted to give their customers mobile ordering, treats and many other benefits, they wanted to give them an ultimate digital experience too. Making the customer feel that they're rolling out the red carpet for them.
With the red carpet idea in mind, I came up with character known internally and informally, as Dan, The Carpet Man—his job, to roll out the red carpet as a teaser for the June 1st. launch on packaging, t-shirts, stickers, posters, clings, social media, etc.
Along with other partner agencies and great social media coverage, Chick-fil-A One quickly became the #1 app downloaded on iTunes.

2015 Atlanta Marketer of the Year AMY award finalist - Integrated marketing Campaign
LANCÔME—a luxury makeup and skin care line I worked on while working at Publicis Groupe in NYC.
This integrated campaign for INVESCO Mutual Funds included, a website design, magazine & newspaper ads, web banners, OOH, tradeshow booths and television.
The television spots we used a zoom-in and zoom-out technique to demonstrate the idea of how everything is connected, globally in the financial world. How the financial world is connected and ever changing. Even the smallest connections make a world of difference for your financial objectives and goals.
To help bring the print and digital part of the campaign to life—we worked with a great illustrator and animator named Craig Frazier. The illustrative style and bold color was very different for the category and helped us to win a Bronze Effie for the campaign.
BIOLAGE is one of many L'Oreal Brands, I worked on while at Publicis NYC. It was an international rebranding campaign that I created and produced at Publicis.
50 years/50 stories Campaign
Tarkett's Powerbond product turned 50 this year. Customers and the sales teams are so passionate about this product we wanted to capture and celebrate their enthusiasm. The work created is the result of interviews with clients, customers, and salespeople.
50th Anniversary Logo
The idea for the 50th-anniversary logo came from the product itself, it rolls out in strips, therefore the logo reflects that.
50th Anniversary Video
Created to celebrate the products 50th-anniversary. Video is used for Tradeshows, sales meetings and in their permanent showroom
50 Stories/50 Years Brochures, Volumes 1 & 2
Conceptually the brochures also reflect the product. And since the product was created in 1967, much of the look and feel was influenced by that era.
Part of the re-brand for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, I recommended shooting an image library. This not only helped bring our re-brand to life, but now they would have ownable, authentic photography that represented them and the patients who go to Children's. Michael Prince—an amazing photographer out of Boston MA, was who I hired. He was amazing and was able to capture the true essence of the patients and employee's of Children's. It was a huge effort which took 15, very long days of shooting, which we generated over 13,000 images.
I have a lot of love for the work that happens at Children's. And I feel honored that the children, parents, doctor's, nurses and staff at CHOA allowed us to take a small peak into their world and heroic lives.

While working on Tarkett I created, produced and (in some cases) directed video's for sale's presentations, trade shows and online content.
Here is a collection of other tv spots and video's I've done over the years at various agency's, some really big budgets and some very small.
iSPY Scavenger Hunt
Using a Microsoft mobile platform, we created the interactive iSPY Scavenger Hunt and rolled it out at the Las Vegas furniture show. Visiting dealers were invited to scan tags spread throughout the showroom to solve and win prizes. Many left with great prizes and also with an appreciation for the technology as it was launched in market to consumers.
Junior Achievement empowers young people to own their economic success. Volunteer-delivered, K-12 programs foster work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills, and use experiential learning to inspire kids to dream big and reach their potential.
This was a pro-bono account I worked on while at The Richards Group in Dallas. We had limited funds so we came up with this campaign to illustrate what Junior Achievement can do for children. Showing how kids become very well versed in finance and business. We asked photographers around the country to donate photography.
