The Zombie Plugz Packaging / Branding / Illustrations was designed, constructed, directed, and written by me. Photography by Jonathan Rios. Zombie Plugz received a silver (local) ADDY Award in 2011 and an American Package Design Award from GDUSA Magazine in 2013.
Around the 17th century a man by the name of William Perry was known for hunting these flesh-eating creatures in Greenwich Village, New York. As a carpenter by day and a vigilante by night, he began to capture the undead by carving plugs from their corpses.
He began selling these high quality plugs at the market and his company has made a killing ever since.
The Flesh-eating creatures enjoy eating warm flesh from helpless victims. They travel in packs and devour every living thing in their path.
If bitten by a Zombie, one will also turn into the undead. The Zombie virus is very contagious and can spread in massive amounts. They are hard to kill since they are dead, but shooting them in the head seems to work.
So, please sleep with one eye open and be on the look out for these flesh-eating creatures, because they are hungry and have no pity on the living. They will find you.
The Robo Teddy Packaging / Branding / Product was designed, constructed, directed, and written by me. Photography by Jonathan Rios. Robo Teddy received an American Package Design Award from GDUSA Magazine in 2013.
In a galaxy far beyond our own, evil emerged on a peaceful planet named Sertha. A small breed of bears called Teddies inhabited the planet. They possessed incredible technology never seen in other planets before.
In a single moment, evil aliens named Spawners invaded the planet to obtain the Teddies' extraordinary technology. Most of the Teddies were killed or left the planet to find a safer place to dwell.
An underground team of Teddy warriors, scientists, and engineers established a corporation named Robo Teddy. They created a new breed of Android / bears that would be able to fight the Spawners.
Throughout many years of fighting the Spawners discovered the secret location of Robo Teddy and set off a nuclear warhead that destroyed the Robo Teddy headquarters.
Little did they know there was a survivor, Android 54. It was now up to Android 54 to destroy the evil Spawners and restore his kind once and for all.
The Aguila Beer Packaging / Product / Branding was designed, constructed, directed, and written by me. Photography by Jonathan Rios. Aguila Beer received an American Package Design Award from GDUSA Magazine in 2012. In 2011 it received a gold (local) ADDY Award and a sliver (district) ADDY Award. It was also featured on TheCollideFactory.com and PackagingServed.com in 2011.
In the fast moving global beer market, Aguila is a new leader in the creation of innovative new products and packaging. Our drive to understand and respond to the changing needs of our consumers and customers has helped establish Aguila as the world´s No.1 premium beer and the world´s most widely distributed beer brand. In addition to the Aguila brand, most of our local operating companies have a portfolio of strong local brands that are among the leaders in their home markets and are the focus for our local innovation efforts.
We carry a selection of the best specialty coffee from around the globe. On rare occasions we may be temporarily out of a coffee if we are unable to locate a product that meets our high standards. No matter how popular or trendy a coffee is, we will not offer any coffee that we consider to be inferior.
Aguila Beer is best served in between “ice cold” and room temperature. Our Porter is one of the darkest beers in the industry. When it comes to temperature, color seems to make a big difference. We serve our beer at 4-7C/39-45F for the best taste.
Who knows what will come next, but you can be sure that we will continue to focus our energy and enthusiasm on anticipating and responding to the needs of our consumers. With this in mind, we will keep the brand of Aguila ahead of the competition.

The Vapor King Packaging / Branding / sliding mechanism was designed and rendered by me.
A premuim cigar style wooden box that slides out to open. The inner tray has ball bearing rail system that slides the tray in the smoothest form. Inside of the tray there is a magnet that brings the tray to the side of the box to hold it in place.
The exterior and interior wood is made from mahogany and has a shellac finish. The Vapor King logo on the front is laser etched.
I wanted to create a cigar style package that would stand out from their competitors' by using branding, graphics, and an elegant / innovative packaging. By using this style of presentation, it would be distinguished from Vapor Kings' other product lines, making the Storm Clearomizer a class within it's own.
