A contribution to an AIGA poster exhibition themed “Labors of Love.” This image commemorates Pink Floyd’s improvised accompaniment of the BBC’s live moon-landing broadcast in 1969. The group later named the lengthy jam session Moonhead.

“The programming was a little looser in those days.”
– David Gilmore

A concentrated subset of U-M color combined with a systematic approach to page layout brings continuity across numerous internal technical documents and public-facing marketing materials for the Michigan Data Collaborative (MDC).

A custom hand-coded responsive layout, consistent studio portraiture, and a unique news-delivery solution elevate Michigan Data Collaborative’s website above industry competitors within the state and beyond.



Output Video

Identity and hand-coded website for a local video production company. Graphic treatment inspired by the loud and vibrant aesthetic of SMPTE color bars traditionally used as television test patterns.
