  Frozen food out of the box usually looks like dog food in a plastic tray after being heated up in the microwave. The brand wants to be inspirational in showing its loyal consumers on Facebook and Pinterest how they can make the food appetizing simply by plating it in a modern and refreshing setting. I worked with the agency photographer and put on my food stylist's hat in creating edible food porn. No spray or chemical used in the photo shoots. And I ate many of the dishes after the studio shoots.
  Macy's "Yes, Virginia" Musical provides grants to schools to put on the musical. I worked on two art directional approaches to the website that offered a grant application and a tool kit for teachers. Although my dedisgn wasn't selected. I contributed contiously to the content pages and the mobile site. This project of collaboration with other creatives won various awards in 2013 (Cannes, Clio, ADC and One Show).

  Fun games work as banners and modules on both Bisquick.com and Facebook pancakes fan page.

Pancake lovers can flip pancakes to score a coupon. They can also invite family and friends to a pancake breakfast with pancake letters that I personally cooked and shot. Parents can print out diner-esque placemats and a stacking height chart for their kids. They can even download a weather forecast widget with pancake icons.
The site offers grants to fundraising coordinators and provides tools to budget, and customize invitations, posters, flyers and signs. A family of emblems reinforces the strong and good causes.
Bisquick is more than pancakes, especially when there are leftover meats. The microsite continues the TV story and asks the consumer to resuscitate leftovers back to life and get more savory recipes.
Online advertising includes a standard banner and a page takeover with dramatic effects.
