About Goodbye, Office

Goodbye, Office is a group of designers, who also happen to be good friends, that work on personal and group projects after hours. It’s like recess for the 9 to 5 designer.

NEW PORTFOLIO

When designing my new portfolio, I wanted to avoid the typical grid of thumbnails. The site is primarily typography that creates visual interest through color and animation. Imagery is then introduced through hovering once the user begins exploring the site. Developed by Randall Bruder.

BIRTHDAY POSTER SERIES

The idea is simple, replace birthday gifts with birthday posters. Chris, Randy and Joe co-design a poster, splitting the canvas 50/50. Each poster follows a set of conditional design rules, with the following poster in the series requiring a new rule in addition to the previous.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

You don’t always get opportunities to work with your hands as a designer. Wheel throwing is a recent hobby of mine, but also one of the most frustrating things I’ve ever attempted. I learned that it’s not something you should overthink. You can’t always control the clay, but sometimes those pieces end up being my favorites.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

To support the launch of the all-new Chevy Cruze, we created a campaign on Amazon to prove it’s the most connected car on the road. Any time a consumer searches for something relating to the Cruze, such as a wireless router or an Apple product, they’re served a banner. When clicked, they’re taken to a landing page to learn more about the vehicle and its features.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Many people cling to the many misconceptions of Detroit, which prevents them from visiting the city and experiencing all that it has to offer. To resolve this, we sorted a variety of Detroit locations into three different guided tours that correspond to a person’s familiarity with the city. The tours consist of restaurants, bars and different activities that accommodate both newcomers and experienced travelers alike.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

A set of informative digital communications intended to educate the millennial demographic about the dangers of domestic violence in service of Detroit area non-profit organization, HAVEN. In order to create a successful campaign, we knew it needed to be multi-platform and consist of multiple variations.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

PerpetuateCCS is a glorification of the everyday items we often take for granted. While seemingly mundane at first glance, these items all carry some sort of meaning or personal connotation. The project was inspired by a friend who collects and pins dead bugs. He mentioned that each bug is associated with a different memory. We applied this same concept to objects that may appear dull, but are filled with a deeper emotional response.
