At Automattic, my main responsibility is a mix between creative direction and growth. It's the constant change of roles between creative direction, branding, designing, and animating that keeps things interesting. I collaborate with folks with various roles from around the world, striving to make the web a better place.
Below are some of my favorite projects:
WordPress 15th Anniversary Logo
Role: Creative direction, design.
Lettering refinements by Cristel Rossignol
For the big anniversary of the WordPress open source project, I was fortunate to design the logo for the event. Working with a panel from the WordPress.org community, we've developed the logo in an open, collaborative process.
People all around the world sported shirts and swag, and even cakes(!) donning the logo to celebrate the occasion.
WordPress 5.0 Announcement Video
To introduce a big milestone in WordPress history, I’ve creative directed this short animated film, along with my colleagues, Matias Ventura and Josepha Haden Chomphosy, to celebrate the release of WordPress 5.0. It’s a huge deal in that the brand new block editor is included with this new release.
Working with the agency Thinkmojo, we created this jazzy film.
GIFs for Tumblr
These are a few selected fun and apropos motion studies I’ve done for our founder Matt Mullenweg celebrating Automattic’s acquisition of Tumblr.
WordPress.com papercraft product video
Role: Creative direction and design
Video agency: Curator Pictures
Website agency: XWP
We wanted to create an engaging creative that tells our customers what you can do with our product. The paper look and feel gives our brand a fresh and modern look that pays homage to our publishing roots.
For this project, we created three demo pages along with this video to show the different uses of our platform.
