Flying with crying babies is tough on all of us. But it’s especially tough on moms, who are given eye-rolls and sighs of exasperation whenever their little ones begin to bawl.
In honor of Mother’s Day, on a flight from New York City to Long Beach, we announced a special promotion that rewarded everyone onboard with 25% off their next flight each time a baby cried.
By the time we arrived in Long Beach, the babies onboard managed to cry everyone to a free roundtrip ticket.
And for once, instead of frustration, there was only love for each and every crying little human on the plane.
Role: I worked in a team with two other wonderful writers on this project — Sia and Sai. We concepted many ideas together before our creative directors landed on this one. I worked in an art direction capacity on this project, brainstorming with my team on the anxieties Moms have flying with their kids, from packing to going through security, and even sitting in a seat. I also helped in a design capacity, creating all the graphics in the film including the logo.

Time Travel Agency // JetBlue
We created a Time Travel Agency Pop-up store in SoHo NYC for JetBlue's launch of their retro jet, and new route from JFK to Palm Springs.
Role: I was responsible in a design capacity, but also gave some minor art direction suggestions. Like adding in time clocks, and using a backwards spinning mid-century clock on social media. I helped with the brochure, and posters that could be found inside the Time Travel Agency, as well as the newspaper.

Bermuda // JetBlue Vacations
When vacation calls, you should answer. To promote the fact that Bermuda is only a two-hour flight from JFK and a better long weekend option than the Hamptons or Jersey Shore, we built an OOH installation with phones that called people on the streets of New York. Anyone who answered got to talk to a live person in Bermuda, who told them about the island and everything it has to offer, then surprised them with a JetBlue Vacation package to Bermuda.
Additionally, we created a print and digital campaign for JetBlue Vacations.

Ringling Brothers: Take Back The Circus
Nobody was thrilled with the tone of the 2016 election, but when politicians were called out for acting like clowns and turning our democracy into a circus, that didn't seem fair to our client: Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey.
