After Pentagram developed Verizon’s new logo, and we were tasked with developing a new brand identity system and visual world. as the agency of record, we worked with a variety of partner agencies to create comprehensive brand guidelines and concepted and produced global brand assets. On this account, I worked as part of a team, but was also able to own my own individual projects. 

We spent two years building out an entirely new visual world and executing against that vision.







Over the course of working on Verizon, we worked through many guideline documents and worked with the internal Verizon team and various partner agencies in order to maintain a strict standard of design for the brand.





I was able to produce many global visual assets for the brand. From sketch-phase, to photographer, stylist, and illustrator curation, to briefings, to pre-production documents, to retouching, I took part in the entire process from start to finish.
