While I was producing at DDB I got a phone call one day from my old boss at Tribune, who I created Eye Opener with. He wanted to start a 24/7 media company called TouchVision and wanted me to run creative. Readers digest condensed I quit DDB and joined TouchVision. We hired 200+ people in 5 months and hit the ground running. I had a team of 15+ motion designers working 3 shifts to crank out content. It was INSANE. While the company didn’t last (that’s another story) we created some of the best, and fastest, news and entertainment graphics out there. Below is a reel of some of the work we did while I directed the team.
Eye Opener was a morning infotainment show that I helped launch and build out all creative assets for under Tribune Media. We had started with a scrappy little team in the beginning with some temp graphics to get the show off the ground. Once we gained traction and ratings we were given a real budget! I led the creative on creating a show open and broadcast package.
When Jimmy, Jackie and I started After The Whistle we realized we needed a video to explain what it was we were trying to do. Build personal brands. We wanted to explain what Jimmy and his team at The Content Factory did for Dan Patrick, while introducing After The Whistle. I worked with James Brennan, a brilliant motion designer on creating the piece below.
I was hired to be the creative consultant for Rosebud Media out of Medford, Oregon. This consists of developing the workflow for the creative department and determining what software, equipment, and personnel should be used. Creating the Rosebud branding packages, individual segment animations and on-air packages. Rosebud prides itself in not looking like ‘traditional news’ and having a digital first mentality. These are a few examples of work I have designed and animated up to this point.
