PLASTIC ATK®

Welcome to my portfolio site.  I’m a graphic designer, art director, and commercial artist. I specialize in visual identities, package design, collaborative brainstorming, and illustration. I am happiest when working at the cross roads of type and image. I have had a lot of great opportunities in my career from working with inspiring and talented creative minds, to cutting a man’s portrait out of a piece of pimento loaf.

Why Plastic Attack? Because my given name does not have the most common spelling. I didn’t want people to misspell my website name, so I looked for an alternative. I came up with a two word combination that felt right for my style. I saw that it was available, and I ran with it.

Hi-Chew®



Sensationally Chewy Fruit Candy

Working with Morinaga America meant there was always a pack of delicious Hi-Chew candy near by. We were fortunate enough to help them with their packaging design, logo development, marketing, social media, and even launching and naming new products. We also worked closely with Major League Baseball and teams like the Los Angeles Dodgers to develop branded buckets for their dugouts, filled with the players favorite fruity candy.
