Pitching ideas to clients can often be predictable. You have your safe ideas, then the idea they will likely go for, and then maybe an oddball crazy one that would be awesome but will never happen.
Verisign needed a commercial to help promote their network security services so we came up with a few concepts. They went with the oddball crazy one. After a brief period of shock and excitement, I found myself surrounded by sword-wiedling vikings somewhere in the snowy mountains of Utah. The end result was an epic, over-the-top commercial to promote Verisign's DDoS protection services.
I'm a visual designer, sort of. I specialize in 3D motion design, but leaving my comfort zone and learning new skills is my passion. Throughout my career I've found myself working on a range of different projects like creating an employment branding strategy for a global brand to filming medieval vikings in the snowy mountains of Utah.
These days, I'm busy hanging out with my daughter and making animations from my home studio in Raleigh, North Carolina.
