Tomorrow I am fortunate enough to have been a part of a team that won a PDN award for photos taken for a Nike Football Campaign. To help launch Nike Football's Spring 15 collection me and a small team at AKQA partnered with Swanson studios in Portland Or to travel to remote locations around the state and capture surreal states of training during the roughest part of the season. 

During the off season conditions at all hemispheres of the world are at their toughest. Cold and rainy seasons are easy excuses for athletes to hang their boots until the time come again. But for the relentless to shine through they must continue their efforts throughout these ruthless conditions. This set of photos is meant to showcase the efforts of the determined footballer.

I rode by this scene on my new/handed down bike yesterday after wandering aimlessly around Bedstuy and Bushwick. A baseball league gather to play a few games every weekend a block away from my crib. This had been the 5th or 6th community gathering I had ridden past in the past hour. It is quite an amazing feat to gather a crowd of people of all colors and all ages to participate in a single act in the spirit of having fun and enjoying a saturday. Where no one is watching, where personalities are embraced and loved. 

I stopped in my tracks and as I saw the coincidental team colors matching the local bodega signage and tried my best to capture this moment. As I lifted my camera I heard chatter behind me about my spectating action. Which I can see where the inclination arises, due to the borough being the excessive subject of gentrification. However, there is something beautiful here, something worth capturing and sharing and if we don't show this side of Brooklyn to the ones who care nothing they will win.

NYC is rich with design and it is displayed proudly. Paul Rand is a name that most every graphic designer is familiar with. With a broad range of work throughout his career this exhibition displays the highlights and organizes them in a fluid order from his first days as Art director to the design legend we know him as.

Jan 1.5 / Jan 2015 has been the day I've been working toward since I began my career as a graphic designer. This city will be the foundation for the next edition of me.

The journey to San Francisco is a wondrous one... filled with ancient trees and toxic rivers. I could get use to this coast. This is my documentation of PDX and everything in between SFO. view more here and here and here
