NOTE: If you really want to see where I'm at with work, y'all visit my REAL portfolio at Cargo Collective.
(I know, I know, this site should be updated too. But in this mad mad world, who has time to update their old site AND get work done? Not this guy.
 
 
NOTE TO CIVILIANS: In the glam-fabulous world of advertising, one's portfolio of work is called a "book." Traditionally it showcases the work of which one is most proud, or that which is thought most likely to generate interest from a potential employer. Of course, in the case of those whose careerist impulses are sadly underdeveloped (er, yours truly), a "book" consists of the favorite bits that somehow he's managed to actually hold onto without spilling coffee or beer on them. Or losing them entirely.

Anyhoo, what follows is a sample of the stuff I sometimes include in my "book." (Someday, when I get me a REAL website, it'll all look MUCH better. Scout's honor.)

intangible print

O.K., O.K., we all agree: print is meant to be, well, printed. Ideally, you'd be holding my print book in yer delicate, graceful hands. However, in these digital times, it's still a decent way for a writer to showcase his thinking, so here's a few brand new (and classic) faves.

NEW:

First Wind

We came up with the name. Designed the logo. And done what we can to create a genuine brand for an innovative American wind energy company.   :-)

AD: Kristin "Carbon Neutral" Collins

NEW:

Constellation Energy (2008 PGA Senior Players Championship)

Who says golfers don't do sh*t for the environment? Oh, wait...yeah, that was me.

Well, now I eat those ill-chosen words. And applaud Constellation, for sponsoring this shindig.

The first-ever carbon neutral PGA tour event.

24 Hour Fitness

"Supermodel" Nikki Taylor flexes Biafran biceps for this branding campaign. The shoot, which included some pretty awful TV, was interesting. (Long story for another day.)

AIDS WALK

They liked our local (SF) campaign so much they took it national. Fer a while.

BrandAmp

One-off for a dot-com that sought to put us all out of business. But hey, there IS a certain appeal to their pitch. Well, thank goodness it didn't work out.

COLORFORMS

They ran in REDBOOK. The background color, well, that was a coincidence.

FOODINI'S

Chevron chose this for the launch of a new "fresh meals" thing, planned to be in their existing service stations. Um, I still haven't seen one.

BRAND NEW:

The Broken Spoke Saloon—"Miss Broken Spoke Contest"

Freelance project. (After nearly a year of working on Harley, I feel like I'm almost getting the hang of this world. But I still need to $#@!ing learn to ride.)  :-}

NEW:

Steinway & Sons

While the recession is a royal pain in the ass, it DID give me and dear partner Kristin C. the chance to work on this amazing brand (when they decided that their fancy-shmancy agency had become too pricey). :-)

I was blessed to grow up with a Steinway in the living room--believe me, it's THE piano. No diggity.

BRAND NEW:

Alteris Solar: sympathy cards for your electric company

I hatched this concept during a meeting. Ted Page helped bring it over the finish line.  :-) (Sorry, utility company...cutting our electric bill in half with solar was an easy decision--but hurting you was hard. Sniff.)

PTC (Parametric Technology Corporation)

In a potentially complicated B2B offering, these guys decided to make their CAD software scalable to ALL different sized businesses. Um, visual metaphors to the rescue.

>>On to the RADIO page, eh?

>>Or TV, perhaps?

>>And then, there's always online...

Ah, yes! Just as Luke Sullivan warned us...it's the yellowing ad from COLLIER'S...
