HOT OFF THE PRESS
NEW SHIRT FOR SALE!!! Athletics Never Say Die!
Happy 2013 MLB Season!
Hey Kids. I've been working on cost/profit analysis of this year's shirt "Season", and decided to make an infographic recap of the crazy first year of OSI. Pretty neat stuff for a one man operation! And I owe it all to the support of the Amazing A's fans, from all over the country!
Alright! I finally get to post some of the work from my time as a designer at Five33 Entertainment in LA. One of the films I worked on extensively was Tim Burton's Frankenweenie for Disney Pictures. The first video is a quick commerical for Wonderful Pistachios. I didn't do the video, but I was a major part of developing the Marketing pitch and presentation materials for this promotions concept. Apparently they liked our ideas.
The next video is a walk-through of "The Art of Frankenweenie". I was part of the team that developed the theme, installation models, and the concepts that became a global touring exhibit.
It's truly amazing to see our design team's hard work come to life...
Check out some fans doing the "Bernie Lean" in some Fresh OSI shirts! What an awesome video...makes me feel pretty great... We've been making them for about a month and sold over 60! These guys love it, we love it! GO A's!
To continue my hot streak of presentation design, I present the beginning parts of a deck I plan to submit to Bud Selig. Maybe... Let's go San Jo!
I decided to play devil's advocate to the Bay Area sports columnists who claim the A's current ownership is alienating fans and leading to low attendance. Then I decided to compare a few other stats related to A's wins, attendance, and more. Check it out!
Alright. As promised... the next shirt! The Dread the Locks shirt! This was one of our first brilliant shirt ideas (along with the San Jos A's shirt), and now it joins the powerhouse lineup. I spent all day screening these bad boys, and they are glorious. Go Jemile Weeks. Go A's. Go Dreads.
Order yours today!
Who fears beards anyhow?
We of Sherwood bring you YOENIS CESPEDES shirts! Is he your hombre, too?
Order yours today!
We A's fans welcome the Cuban phenom Yoenis Cespedes to Oakland, and look forward to some great play from our new hombre.
When a good friend is in a tizzy over some less than perfect creative deliverables (agency speak, sorry) from her design team, what do you do? Tackle that mission like an O.S.I. agent should! 4 flyers for 1 'umbrella' event made up of 4 sub-events. That writes as confusingly as it sounds. Basically, she needed 4 different flyers. The logic issues were mine to solve. Check it.
"Yelp's a Zoo" (links & images go offsite. Portfolio has bigger examples)
For those who aren't in the know, or don't much fancy baseball, the Oakland A's are trying to get a new ballpark in San Jose. The MLB commissioner, Bud Selig, appointed a 'Blue Ribbon Committee' to determine the viability of a ballpark in Oakland and to resolve 'territorial' issues related to San Jose. This was well over 3 years ago, with no real solution in sight. Just a lot of nonsense.
We Of Sherwood are a bit more visual than vocal in our support of the move to San Jose (obviously)... and this is what we think of the good ol' commish's committe.
Until, next time, sports fans. Let's go Oakland! Er, um. A's!
