Promotional concept and all visual materials, including a wordpress website, commercials and banners for the Vein Vote; an amateur BMX video contest run by Vein BMX.
The idea was to allow our Facebook followers to submit they’re homemade BMX videos on Facebook, where they could be easily viewed and then voted on through a voting form. I had the pleasure of running the entire contest as well, allowing me to field questions and comments about the contest.
I helped a friend develop the name Bugbrella, logo and shapes of his magnetic vent cover for older Volkswagen bugs. The inexpensive guard shields water from entering the lower and upper rear vents, keeping it in better condition longer.

Skateboarding in Ayden, NC with my buddy Kevin on a sunny summer day.
Abandoned pools are the best. It’s like being on another planet. The outside sounds are blocked by the walls, encapsulating and displacing you. It’s quite surreal. All photos by Levi Varner
