Art Director

When Gentleman Scholar told me I was going to art direct a spot for Oreo's new Wondervault campaign I could not contain my excitement. It also helped that I had the brilliant Macauley Johnson art directing with me.  We had an amazing amount of freedom creating these world's, but the schedule was tight. Over the course of weeks The Wondervault universe was fully imagined and ready to share with the world. I'm super proud for the chance to help create these delicious worlds. 



My initial designs for the different environments were created during the pitch phase. Initially, the client was looking for an illustrative approach to the worlds, but after seeing some of the other 3D designs Gentleman Scholar presented a decision was made to move towards a tactile style. Only a few of my frames survived this change but those that did served as a jumping off point for the narrative and compositions.
