Shaun of the Dead screening, 8/1/14 at Colonial Theatre

Anyone who knows me is aware of the passion that I have for this brilliant piece of celluloid, so when the "First Friday Fright Night" folks at the historic Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania asked if I was willing to design a poster for the 10th Anniversary screening of the film, how could I say "no"? This is a property that I've paid tribute to several times before, so coming up with a new idea was a little tougher this time. I figured, "Why not just keep it simple?" and do a straight foreward cartoon-esque representation of the protagonist?

If you're in the Philly area, come on out to the Colonial on Friday, August 1st, and join us in the fun of celebrating 10 years of the greatest "Rom Zom Com" ever...

Monday, July 14, 2014 logo & character designs

I was approached by a local company that creates valves and process control equipment. They were looking to expand into the 21st century with a new venture where they would offer their product for quick and easy purchasing on the internet, and hence was born! As a result of the name "Valveman", they were looking for an almost "super-heroic" type of character to represent their company, adding a fun aspect to their new web presence...

Unsung logo designs

Here are some logos that I designed for good pal Mike Zolomij over at, a website that features mini-documentaries on some of the Philly-area's little known heroes. The people in these short films have one thing in common: They each possess their own personal passions, the thing that gets them out of bed in the morning and keeps them going all day, every day. Mike and I bounced quite a few ideas around when it came to designing these logos. We tried showing visual representations of Philadelphia in a few instances, whether it be a silhouette of the Liberty Bell, or featuring the skyline of the city itself, to no avail... Finally we decided on a clean, bold typeface (Rockwell) and overlapped white letters over black, making use of the negative space in each of the black letters. The whole thing really just fell together nicely. To find out more about Mike and Unsung Philly, go to
