DARKSTAR SKATEBOARDS DECK & WHEEL DESIGNS

My 2 deck and wheel designs entries for a contest held by
Darkstar Skateboards.
DESIGN 1: The helmet logo reminds me of the dark ages, so I created an ominous image reflective of that time.
DESIGN 2: I made the logotype look like a Metal band (i.e. Metallica, KISS, Judas Priest, etc.)

OZARRAMO SNOWBOARDS DECK DESIGN

I created a deck design for a fictitious snowboard company named after myself. The horse came about from watching Mr. Ed, and musing to myself about having a talking horse as my company’s spokesman.

D-LINK GAMING ROUTER PACKAGING (DESIGN 1)

While working at D-Link, I was asked to generate & present ideas for a wifi router that was created for gaming.
Because of the unique design of the router itself, I decided to echo that shape onto the packaging to make it more eye-catching.
In this design, the router would be enclosed in clear molded-plastic in a clear plastic cylinder to look as if the router is a powerful ‘element’ floating in it’s container (Extra components and literature would be hidden within the lids of the packaging).
The company ultimately went with a conventional rectangular box design, but were so impressed with this design, they began creating a 'Special Edition router,' specifically, so they could use my design.
I left the company shortly after, so I, sadly, did not see this project reach completion.

D-LINK GAMING ROUTER PACKAGING (DESIGN 2)

While working at D-Link, I was asked to generate & present ideas for a wifi router that was created for gaming.
Because of the unique design of the router itself, I decided to echo that shape onto the packaging to make it more eye-catching.
In this design, the package would look like a video game version of itself (going with an 8-bit retro vibe, of course).
The company ultimately went with a conventional rectangular box design, but were impressed with my ‘out of the box’ approach to the project.
