In 1996 Tom's Hardware Guide was launched to provide expert reviews of computer hardware and software. In the last 10 years it has branched out to encompass most consumer electronics, games and tech news in general, hosting close to a dozen sites.

Most of the vast amount of work produced for TG Publishing is designing and coding web pages, developing new web sites, creating graphics, banners, logos and other promotional graphics, and working with their numerous vendors, sponsors and affiliates to expedite marketing projects. The rest of the work I do for them is consultation coming up with marketing ideas, fixing stuff and improving other stuff. With such a vast cornucopia of work it's hard to pick out specific items that don't need much explanation. But being an artist I prefer to demonstrate creative work or some technical feat.
Launched February 6, 2007, Gear Digest combined the now-defunct MobilityGuru and DenGuru into a single resource for reviews of popular consumer electronic products. I designed the logo and built the most of the page templates based on pre-approved design concepts.
On very short notice I had to develop a series of posters for TG Publishing's trade show booth for Computex Taipei 2006. From scratch and without any direction I cranked out four posters on time and to exact metric specifications.
A holiday email card designed for the salespeople to send to their clients during the 2006 - 2007 holiday season.
The snowflakes and the whole design were drawn in Adobe Illustrator then coded as a highly compatible email page.

Since TG Publishing produces so many articles, it is important that some of them get more notice than others, especially when they are being sponsored by major companies that expect a certain number of page views. Some samples below.
For Tom's 10th Anniversary I created over 180 banner ads and about 60 unique contest entry pages. We also worked on alot of other promotional measures to entice people to enter to win the computer hardware and consumer electronics prizes. Some of the banners have been shrunk and put in the left column. Below are a collection of some 160 x 600 skyscrapers and some 336 x 280 large rectangle banner ads.
Gear Digest reviews popular consumer electronics products. The logo came out nice, eh?
MerchantHound.com is a price comparison website.
Header graphics and page layout for the extremely popular Hardware Charts pages.
I designed Tom's Hardware, most of its related websites and their logos, and lots of regular graphics that appear on the sites.
I performed some improvements to the rather dull TwitchGuru interface.
