My Work

Over a 5 year time span I have worked with a number of freelance and work-for-hire clients. Whether its a birthday card for a friend or an entire corporate identity for a major client, I put my whole heart into my work. Here you can see a few examples of my many works.

CBOSS Inc.

Fintech software company

Brand solutions, website redesign + development, Social Ads, and Promotional Materials

CBOSS is a fintech company located in Poland, Ohio that specializes in secure payments. My job as a Graphic and Interactive designer was to improve CBOSS’s brand image across digital platforms. The project included: Reworking brand guidelines, website redesign & development, rebranding social media, design of print materials, designing display signage, creating social media ads, retargeting social media ads, and designing card reading device displays.

Triad Production Group

Video Production and more

Website redesign + development

Triad Production Group is the in house production company at WFMJ/WBCB Youngstown. During my time at WFMJ/WBCB they reached out to me to redesign their website that was built on Wix.

For this project I took their existing website layout and gave it a bit of a facelift. This website is a one page scroller that has a number of plugins that showcase their social media accounts.

 

Daymare

Rock Band

Album art

Daymare is a four-piece alternative metal band from Columbus, Ohio. Their EP “GLOW” was released June 9, 2018. When the bassist and my brother, Mark Nye, asked me to create their album art I was honored to do the job.

For this project I took a concept developed by the lead singer,  Dustin Rinehart, and made it visual. We worked with various type samples before deciding to keep things simple and go with the classic Helvetica font. The eclipse was an core concept of the album art. I found the photography by Karen Kayser and implemented into the design of the album. The overall minimal approach reflects the clean, yet heavy sounds of the album, and conveys the core concept of the title track, “GLOW”.

Orenda Organics

Wellness Brand

Brand Identity

Orenda Organics is a wellness brand specializing in hemp extracts. While the brand was in the startup process Moe, the owner, reached out to me on a freelance work platform.

Moe explained his idea of using two hexagons to represent the letter “O” as well as  benzene rings which are commonly used to model molecules in organic chemistry. For this project, I created multiple logo drafts before we settled on a final format and color scheme. During the prototyping process I found that I am able to create a leaf silhouette by overlapping the hexagons; we used this to convey the organic aspects of the brand. The final product uses contrasting colors and uniform line weights to create a easily scalable logo that can be read on a variety of small scale tincture bottles.

ASECU

ASSOCIATED SCHOOL EMPLOYEES

CREDIT UNION

Digital advertisements

ASECU is a not-for-profit and member-owned credit union based in the greater Youngstown area. Though it is the Associated School Employees Credit Union, membership extends to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Mahoning, Trumbull, and Columbiana counties.

My job was to create digital advertisements for ASECU to explain the services that the credit union offers. For the advertisements, I used the existing color scheme for ASECU and a narrow sans serif font similar to font used on their website. The focus was on refinancing services, payment security, and inclusion in the community. The ads were displayed online in 3 different sizes and a digital billboard near one of the locations.
