NY Times: On The Road

This week marked the end of my year long run as weekly contributor for Joe Sharkey’s “On The Road.” These last two spots were for stories on the TSA’s response to potential “phone bombers,” and the liability issues for companies whose employees are killed during business travel. A huge thanks to Bob Goetz and Joe Sharkey for the great opportunity!

NY Times: World Cup Promos

I got the chance to sneak a portrait of my friend Juan into this series of illustrations promoting the NY Times coverage of the 2014 World Cup. These are based on poll responses to the questions “which country has the most devoted fan base” (Colombia) “who plays the most beautiful game of football?” (Brazil) “which team are you routing against?” (Iran, USA, Argentina.) Thanks to Luke Shuman for the assignment!

AD AGE: AD Buyer’s Guide

I did this set of spots for an AD AGE guide to buying “programmatic ads.” These were for a glossary section defining the terms of the trade. (Namely: “AD FRAUD,” when advertising sellers use bots to rack up click rates, “GEO TARGETING,” “USER/DEVICE ID’s,” two ways advertisers use our information to target a specific demographic.) Thanks to Jesper Goransson for the assignment!

NY Times Book Review: Marlowe’s Shadow
I got the chance to work with the NY Times Book Review last month for this piece about the latest incarnation of Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe. I’d been watching a ton of True Detective at the time, and have always wanted to create one of these investigation boards. (I assume that’s the technical term.) A big thanks to Nicholas Blechman for the assignment!
