I've partnered with the designer/illustrator Krystal Lauk for her San Francisco based Illustration studio, Krystal Lauk Studios. KLS works primarily with Bay Area based tech companies such as Google, Facebook, Fast Company, Uber and Intercom to name a few. 

Krystal has a unique and accessible kind of illustration that works well with companies who aim to serve many clients, with a key focus on branding . I've been the primary motion graphics designer for KLS, Krystal serving as the Art Director while collaborating with different studio teams and directly with clients themselves.

Brand Animation - With the exciting new addition of Kubernetes to their product, Sumologic, a cloud-based machine data analytics company, was in need of an engaging campaign and marketing portal. Working with Contrast Design Works, we created an illustrated pirate theme that highlighted the range of benefits, from security to data dashboards. To ensure a smooth transition from the existing brand illustrations, Krystal Lauk Studios leveraged the original outdated line art to create a fresh and elevated illustrated style for Sumologic. The outcome was a playful adventure at sea, inspired by the Kubernetes ship's wheel logo; Adobe Illustrator.
