Ecolab is the leading global provider in water, hygiene and energy technologies and services. Every day they help make the world a cleaner, safer and healthier place. For their corporate sustainability report, they were looking to add a level of visual expression—where in the past have relied on photography.

Target Design United
Design United was about bringing together local collaborative creatives to celebrate Target’s Bullseye. I was asked to contribute my interpretation of the Target Bullseye through my own work.

Parts are defined and precise, yet parts are unknown and interpreted in new ways.

As an agency side project, I was asked to be a contributing artist to a screen saver and mobile app project with Proximity Chicago.

In illustrating the city of Cape Town, South Africa I was inspired by the warm, brightly colored buildings, homes and markets of the town.
The New and Old project is a collaboration of artists and designers paired with assigned Bible passages to be visually interpreted. My excerpt was Genesis 2:18 God Creates Woman For Man. Among many creations, organisms, creatures and life there was also man. But man should not be alone. The visual represents molecular formations of organisms. Forms were derived from man, to create a beautiful creature who was one with nature—for purposes of love, fruitfulness and wisdom. It was the Creation of the mother of all living things.

Taste and Place
Taste and Place—the origin of flavor. The taste of food depends on its specific flavor compounds. Pairing foods together is based on combining items with key flavor components in common. When usually restricted by the cultural or traditional context of a product, foodpairing based on favor profiles result in new, innovative combinations. This infographic visualizes region by color, as well as five major categories of flavor compounds by shape: sweet, sour, bitter, salty and spicy. Small graphs of complementing flavor combinations show common themes through flavors and where they come from.
