  • Hushcon Identity Design

    September 2015 – October 2015

    Hushcon is an invite-only, community oriented security and hacking conference. Recently, I had the pleasure of working with the conference organizers to come up with the new identity for the conference, as they begin their expansion to new cities. The core concept is based off of movie Hackers, a cult classic in the security industry for obvious reasons, and the logo itself acts as an “easter egg” of sorts for those who can spot the reference.

  • Salesforce Trust T-shirt Design

    July 2015

    Salesforce, the leader in cloud computing, is serious about security and is very active in the security community. As an individual who is very close to the “hacker scene”, I was excited at the opportunity to design their t-shirts for Defcon 23, one of the largest hacker conferences, which takes place annually in Las Vegas, NV. The concept for the shirt is based on the history of Salesforce itself and also a quote from one of the department managers.
