This image was the starting point for Ollie Vee's first Press Kit. The digital version of the press kit can be viewed below. The press kit was created on Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop. The completed size was 9" x 11.5".  It was assembled with custom birchply covers with linen paper throughout. It included a 3 song demo CD, a glossy 4" x 6" and 8" x 10" photographs mounter using antique black photograph corners tabs. The assembly was tied together with red .0125" elastic string, and mailed wrapped in brown packaging paper with burlap string. The concept to create something that was heavy, retro and out of the ordinary.
Inside front cover includes a 3-song EP.

Ollie Vee 'Lonesome Girl' CD Artwork
The project's theme was spearheaded by the photographer and the band. Included in the conceptual stages and in the photo shoot with Wandering Eye Photography, my main responsibility was the execution of the visuals of the CD design. The concept was dark, mysterious, honky tonky, with a feeling of a bygone era. This is Ollie Vee's critically acclaimed debut album.

Belle Epoque Burlesque Website
A website for a burlesque performer "Belle Epoque", created using Wordpress CMS. The website is a parallax site. She did not have any content other than some photography at the start. All titles and bodycopy had to be created from scratch. Extensive Adobe Photoshop was used to manipulate and create composition images which are the heart of the site. Headlines needed to be catchy and represent burlesque feel. 2HB Development provided Creative Direction, Graphic Design, Composite Imaging/ Photo Retouching, and Copywriting.

Adamson Systems Advertising Part 1
Adamson Systems is a global leader in manufacturing of professional loudspeaker technology. This series of ads mandate was to be smart, eye-catchy, risqué, and include high-profile industry professionals, as well as feature loudspeakers in a non-conventional way. The concept was a collaboration with the Marketing & Sales team. Multiple pairs of sunglasses were sent to FOH engineers worldwide, who then found a wall to stand in front wearing the glasses, and had a friend take a snapshot. Needless to say the quality of images was variable, so it took a lot of photo retouching and manipulation to attain the final results. Challenge was to try to reach a uniformity in color and lighting. A photoshoot was also held for the "Marilyn Monroe", "Bikini Girl" And "Black Panther" characters to capture the right feel. My job was to execute a simple, clean layout and design, manipulate all source photography, as well as coming up with catchy copywriting for the head- and tag lines.
