I worked with Ewen Cameron on the launch of the Ferrari 458 Spider. We commissioned Video artist Marco Brambilla and premiered the film at 2011 Art Basel in Miami. His film titled “RPM” is a visceral, cubist representation of a Formula One driver’s state of mind during a race. RPM was photographed at the Italian Formula One Grand Prix in Monza, then processed in a signature style; Images from the Scuderia Ferrari archives as well as race broadcasts and film clips were sampled to create an abstract and kaleidoscopic series of images which seamlessly unfold in 3D space. The Ferrari event was hosted by Peter Brant, Tobias Meyer and Interview magazine and held at the top floor of Herzog & de Meuron’s parking garage where more than 50 sexy Ferrari cars were parked.
Born To Fit
The 1969 Premium Jeans, named in honor of Gap’s debut year, were completely reworked and redesigned at every level –from design and fit, to fabric, fasteners, and production. The new collection was created with a major focus on fit, premium washes, and styles that accommodate different body types. Gap's reinvented fits and styles can stand up to more expensive premium brands, but at a price point consumers can afford. Gap’s new denim was born to fit. In the same thread, Gap is encouraging fans to reach back to their roots and declare what they were born to do. Team: Trey Laird, Karl Templer, Craig McDean
I helped Bonobos open a variety of permanent and temporary retail concepts called “GuideShops”.

To kick off Fashion Week, Cole Haan & Tumblr hosted a #SubwayStyle blogger event at the New York Transit Museum in Brooklyn.

I developed the monolith concept to reflect the heroic nature & iconic godliness associated with the Kubrick's ‘2001’ where a black monolith is worshiped and held aloft for it’s spiritual, other-worldly prowess. I wanted to imbue PAX2 with this same sense of mystique, an almost religious sense of identity - a precious, almost mysterious thing to be valued and revered. I conceptualized and created all materials for the PAX2 launch.
