Print Ad Redesign
"12 hours a day. 11 month busy season. 15 total days off. If anyone knows a busy schedule it’s Mr. Lowe, and comfort means everything. Keep it rolling."
A more mature approach is taken with this redesign. This ad redesign remembers who the celebrity is and portrays Mr. Lowe in a artistic and tasteful light. The double exposure effect depicts a snapshot of a 12-hour day. A day filled with travel, persistent weather, fatigue and of course the most grueling factor of them all–walking.
G Suite by Google (2)
Since 2014, Google has offered software, apps, and products from Google Drive under various brand names. Currently, G Suite by Google Cloud is the name of choice. Simply dropping the “by Google Cloud” from the G Suite name, and adding “by Google”, the product is simplified, informing the user that the software and tools are offered by Google– a reputable brand name. This piece of collateral and its counterparts communicate the horror of corrupt, lost, deleted files and how this frustration affects workflow. Fortunately, this frustration can be relieved with G Suite by Google at a low cost.

SMI Snow Makers International (2.5)
Since 1974 SMI Snow Makers has been an established global brand. SMI is responsible for the manufacturing, distribution, maintenance, and setup of snow making machines for various resorts–and has been an industry leader ever since. The focus in this small campaign is to communicate the deep rooted tradition of innovation and quality products.

Kiwi Shoe Care (3)
Kiwi is an Australian shoe care line with a 111-year-old shoe care legacy. Since the majority of past Kiwi ads have been focused on shine, I wanted to revert back to basics–the timeless and traditional Kiwi mascot. The Kiwi is a focal point of the brand but has been forgotten. Within these ads, the spotlight finds itself on a modern, revamped version of the Kiwi brand icon. He is excited, joyful, and adorable. Each ad within its respective media encourages the end user to “take ‘em with you”–Instilling in consumers that any time they use Kiwi brand shoe products, they take the little guy too.

Vouge story Gif
Within the Discover dashboard of Snapchat, the fashion publication Vogue generates content that is style and beauty driven. The majority of Vogue’s Discover tab focuses on attire. With a specific and targeted audience, the relevance of these short animations can reach their full potential. On the first slide the copy is brief, begging for the user to swipe up to the ad on the next slide. After a quick swipe the user clicks the ad and is directed to Kiwi's product page.
Spotify Desktop Overlay
The correlation between music selection and brands are key. The Spotify ad spend will target users during traditional work hours between 8am-6pm. Along with users of this time span, targeting listeners of the Spotify branded playlists such as “Happy to be Home” “Stepping Out” and “New Boots” are ways to gather listenership from those who are relaxing or on their way home. Within these groups, it is important to keep animations short as patience may been thin after a long day of work. When a user clicks on the overlay they are directed to Kiwi’s product page.
Media placement is vital for these Kiwi web banner ads. For this reason, websites that specialize in ecommerce for footwear is the first target. Websites such as DSW will host short copy ads, while enabling cookies on visits to the Kiwi website and social media platforms to ensure a relevant ad spend.
