MICROSOFT, branding and social

Currently I am a graphic designer on the Community team at Microsoft. In this role I have had the great opportunity to work on a huge variety of projects. I will show you a handful of them here.


I was lucky enough to get to do the branding for our first Comic-con inspired all-hands. I created the logo ( various treatments ) as well as lanyards, buttons, badges, banners, shirts for the staff, enamel pins, posters, stickers and more.

A program was started for employees who want to pitch ideas to the leadership. It’s name is Campfire, I got to do the branding for it while coordinating with Next’s art director Mike Harnisch.

One of my first projects when I started was to create illustrative portraits of my team.


A project that used my cardboard crafting skills was the “Blanket Fort”. My boss ( Jessica Merizan ) and I collaborated on this focus room which is a magnificent place to go when you need a place to join a Skype meeting or just have a quick brainstorming session.

I was the solo designer for the Build lounge at the Build conference. This was a huge lift and it took some long nights but the lounge was fantastic once we opened the gate and let the people experience what we had to show.

I created the large scale wall graphics, banners, shirts, desktop signs and screensavers

Remix Workshop is an Instagram experiment that the Community team launched to give Microsoft a young/playful look and more direct connection with followers. I worked with Odd Division giving them art direction to keep them within our brand guidelines. We focused on GenZ since they are the largest upcoming demographic.

Mood board I provided to Odd Division to guide the look and feel of the posts.

On the Community team we had a group of content creators that we brought together for a live stream showcasing Paint 3D. The event was called Remixathon. I created the logo and all the assets for this event.
