"Zappo's Call Center" Campaign
On this project I had the pleasure of collaborating with 1st Ave Machine and Puppeteer/Fabricator, Randy Carfagno, to create a series of puppet designs that would act out actual customer service calls to the company, Zappos. This was a particularly fun project, as I was involved for the entire duration of the project, from early development through the shooting process. Many thanks to the director, Aaron Duffy, and 1st Ave Machine for making this design experience both unique and extremely pleasurable!

For this on air promo, I was asked to participate as a graphic designer to partner with a contestant from MTV's reality show, "Styl'd." Our challenge was to create a T-Shirt design based on a fact from thetruth.com's anti-smoking campaign. Our design process was documented throughout the day, and we produced the printed T-Shirt within a few hours of our original concept pitch. Although not my most polished piece, it was an interesting experience to be filmed and create a finalized product within such a short deadline.
