This piece provides an in-depth analysis of BuzzFeed's role within the social, mobile, video, and ad spending trends in the media industry.
The project's execution can be accredited to a very long list of people across all departments in the company. My role was front end art direction for the piece, which I was able to do with the help of our product side Design Director, who works closely with our developers. I also created the illustrations throughout and the gifs that open each section.

BuzzFeed collaborated with condom company Durex to create custom sponsored content that people in relationships would want to share with their partners. I worked with one of BuzzFeed's creative strategists to conceptualize, research, and write the copy for a series of four custom infographics. I illustrated and designed each graphic while integrating assets provided by the client, and the finished products were housed within BuzzFeed posts to make social sharing easy for our users.

The client commissioned an infographic that communicated just how much the comedy careers of actors Rob Corddry and Paul Scheer overlapped. I worked with a BuzzFeed creative to research and visualize it, and we housed the finished graphic in a post to make it easily shareable with the core BuzzFeed audience, as well as various social media sharers.
