Japanese Design Projects
Here is a collection of projects I've done for Japanese clients. I'm fluent in business-level Japanese and can design effortlessly for native Japanese markets, a world of design that requires a wholly different approach than Western audiences.
Through Lone Tree Creative, I've had the opportunity to work with the #1 small town dive bar in Idaho, the 219 Lounge. I developed a comprehensive brand for their renovation and renewal, including a fresh logo, website, and dozens of event posters and advertisements that consistently fill the bar! Website: 219.bar
The idea of coming up with a brand and message for an aesthetician was a huge challenge for me. I created the "You decide" campaign as a way to "take back" the idea of marketing to people about their appearance from the current trend of fear and negativity, to a message of positivity and deciding for yourself what it means to be beautiful.

Timberline Helicopters approached Lone Tree Creative to develop a fresh new brand and web experience for their booming aerial services company. Currently adorning endless apparel and a whole fleet of top-of-the-line helicopters, the logos I created for TH and its subsidiaries are among the highest-praised in their sector.
