My name is Zachary and I'm a new media artist from Philadelphia.

I create engaging content... websites, videos, games, apps, that sort of thing. I work at a University of Pennsylvania think-tank and I'm responsible for projects such as the political literacy site FlackCheck.org and the teaching tool Civics Renewal Network. My work has been featured on CNN, MSNBC, PBS, MTV, USA Today, and tons of other places. I use this website as a process blog. Click here to view my portfolio.

Annenberg MEDIA Logo

I designed this logo for the Annenberg MEDIA Summer Camp held at the Annenberg Public Policy Center. We taught high school juniors how to make videos that displace and correct common deceptions and misleading statements found in YouTube videos about tobacco use. Dan Corkery animated the logo and made the wonderful motion graphics bumpers above for students to include in their videos.

I got a reasonably opened ended GIF commission from a collector. This is called “Unending Remorse”. I love doing work like this.

Working on branding for a big project at the Annenberg Public Policy Center. Normally my workflow for brand design is to make a rough layout in Illustrator, print it out, work on it by hand using markers and white-out, then scan it and refine it in Photoshop until it has the right “feel”. Then I redraw it entirely from scratch in Illustrator. It takes a while, but I almost always iron out potential design issues by doing it this way.
