Sasha Soprano presents… PRIVILEGED

Recurring client Sasha Soprano asked me to create a visual identity for her newest event. She’s starting a weekly Friday night LGBT club for the 18 and up crowd – launching Nov 4th. We wanted something that felt elegant, ornate and opulent without getting stodgy. After creating the logo I worked up a 2 page flyer and then combined both sides into the double page layout below.

PAM ANN @ Castro Theatre – Intermission Loop

Here is an pre-show video loop that I created for the recent Pam Ann show at the Castro Theatre – created for the hostess Sasha Soprano. I’ve also created background loops for DJs at nightclubs to spin to. I created all the text screens, processed the video provided and tracked down a few amusing classic nostalgic videos to incorporate.

This was a rush job so I didn’t have a chance to do something more elaborate, but given time I would have used Premiere or After Effects to have more control over the elements.

Dr. Guldal Caba’s InnerPathic Process

I’ve been working in conjunction with James Carrol (my partner in DigiCommune) to create a vast website that explains the elements of Dr. Guldal Caba’s InnerPathic Process. James created the site logo, store logo and media page graphics. I did all HTML in Dreamweaver, prepped all images and redesigned a few graphics provided by the client.

The site also includes a Blog page – client was given an explanatory document and tutorial videos on how to run it.
