Google's Watch This Space
Google's most recent campaign comes with the simple message: There is a perfect ad for everyone. Even those this space is doing great, it can do even better with the magic that Google can offer. I was given the fortunate opportunity to work with Johannes Leonardo and Google to produce print ads about display banner ads that promoted banner ads.

Display Advertising Campaign
- This recent Google campaign comes with a simple message: There is a perfect ad for everyone. Watch this space. There are smarter ways to make an ad more engaging and Google can help.
Working with Johannes Leonardo and Google, I had the fortunate opportunity to produce print ads about banner ads... that promoted banner ads. Making use of the smart but fast, easy and simple design behind Google, the campaign highlighted the importance of companies reaching out to customers as individuals and touted success stories of clients, varying from Volvo to Groupon.
Google introduced the concept for using every size of ad space to make a map. In its original form, it was blocky. I then based a design atop a world map, creating a more fluid image that was immediately recognizable as a distinct Google product about advertising.
"This lively volume celebrates the contributions to inventive fashionable living by the New York– based style innovator Opening Ceremony—a bible for the fashion-forward and culturally savvy alike. In 2002, when Carol Lim and Humberto Leon opened the downtown Manhattan retail shop Opening Ceremony, they created what has become the most innovative fashion and culture destination in New York. Bringing together the best emerging American talent with international designers and historic brands, Opening Ceremony represents the best in fashion and has played a vital role in launching the careers of many young designers. Celebrating the company’s tenth anniversary, Opening Ceremony is a visually rich documentation of Leon and Lim’s diverse inspirations, collaborators, and creative community, including Ryan McGinley, Rodarte, and Alexander Wang. A celebratory look at New York’s quintessential style headquarters, this book will captivate and inspire readers from fashion, art, music, film, and beyond." —Book Release Description, Amazon
In collaboration with Opening Ceremony, Susan Barber and Naomi Otsu; art direction by Susan Barber.

"Lunch Hour NYC looks back at more than a century of New York lunches, when the city’s early power brokers invented what was yet to be called “power lunch,” local charities established a 3-cent school lunch, and visitors with guidebooks thronged Times Square to eat lunch at the Automat. Drawing on materials from throughout the Library, the exhibition explores the ways in which New York City—work-obsessed, time-obsessed, and in love with ingenious new ways to make money—reinvented lunch in its own image."

Inspired by the Chinese ideographic principle of associative compounds and the use of the modular system of the square, I want to capture memories of growing up triggered by visual imagery. Using the game as an interactive medium, the user discovers the visual relationship of ideas, individual or communal, that can be applied to their local context. If we delve into this pool of ideas, expound upon them, embody them, and embed them into wherever we may be, we can cultivate our environments and create identities that are based more upon our unique dichotomies than the existing globalized culture.Exhibition Design, Graphic Design, Multimedia2010
