Rio is a visual music piece inspired by the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Rio focuses on contrast - shown through color & shape; heard through the music. The designs combine vibrant colors against muted background and you will notice an overarching shape design in each sport sequence. Rio creates an atmosphere of excitement.

I created Rio to excite the world for the 2016 Olympic Games by showing the different rhythms and movements of various Olympic sports. Rio showcases contagious energy, exuberant nature, harmonious diversity and Olympic spirit combined with musically linked designs to assist the audience in understanding the internal feelings of different athletes. Using abstraction, Rio displays the mindset of an athlete during competition by removing elements that are forgotten during those few moments of a performance. Iconic design language is used to show what is kept in focus while athletes are present their talents to the world.
TITLE SEQUENCE & TITLE DESIGN
'SEARCHING FOR SQUATCH'
I created the title sequence & title design for a USC animated thesis film - 'Searching for Squatch - Directed & Animated by Sullivan Brown. I was thrilled when he approached me about designing the title and title sequence for him. He sent me the audio to work with and as his film was set in the woods, nature tones and soft transitions felt suitable.
