Anyone who knows me at all knows that I am a car junkie. But what they may not know is that cars are the reason I am a designer/art director.

Hot Wheels, Matchbox cars and car-related stickers were the gateway to a lifetime of fascination with shape, color, graphics and branding. 

Logos from STP and Kedall Motor Oil, to iconic racing liveries for Martini,  Gulf and John Player Cigarettes, to racing stripes, gumballs, and roundels became the graphic language I most identified with and still do to this day. 

Below is what it looks like inside my head. Enjoy.
