A collection of gifs I have made to either remind me of an interesting visual design, motion production, or an event in my life.
Collection will be updated periodically. Visit sterndevon.tumblr.com for more.
A four month project I helped my friends complete which helps you record your dreams. The app allows users to create alarms through a normal week. Once an alarm goes off, it will transcribe any dream by speaking to the app. Afterwards, users may search around the globe to see what others are dreaming, and if they are dreaming the same things.

In the beginning of the year, my friend Levi made a short film intended for a 'disposable cameras' film festival. He came to me looking for a simple title sequence which would help his film stand out. Because the story is about a lost phone, I made the sequence seem as if it was taken from the device's viewfinder.
A guided out of box experience tour to help the user understand a mobile payments application for iOS.
My friend and I created this in hopes to better understand working with Cinema 4D with After Effects integration and using multipass rendering. He ended up doing the sound for me after I provided him the final motion.
The project took only a week to put together but I learned so much from doing it I decided it had to have a spot in my public portfolio.
Short video made for futuresoundsclassic.com, a site where music videos are aggregated. This project called for a simple bumper to be used at the end of some of their promotional material.
In order to prove my abilities in motion, a potential employer wanted me to create a demo. The guidelines were simple; take an app you don't like and add two navigational elements not used or rarely seen in mobile. Over the next two days I found an app which needed improving, conceptualized basic UI elements, and created this simple demo showing two methods of navigating I thought were unique.

One of my DJ friends got me this gig for the nightclub Trigger (now closed) where they wanted to host an event where visual stimulants were the focus. They wanted me to build some visualizations timed to different types of music the DJ's would be playing. I proposed the idea of creating a set of visuals, which were intended to be viewed with free stereoscopic 3D glasses we were providing. The visual was around 15minutes and was set to loop randomly from a bunch of different videos. This is a short clip of some of the effects shown.
I created a bunch of visuals years back for a privite bay area event where thousands of people play dodgeball. The video was projected onto a large screen behind the DJ stage at the event near Berkeley, CA. I was responsible for 3D visuals and effects timed to music.
Ever since I saw this famous image, I needed to make a super clean poster.
Audrey's beauty inspired me to pull ideas from the fashion world.
This image was printed on .5mm woven canvas and was given to a residence in Northern California in 2012.
This print was my first try at creating hair inside illustrator.
It holds a place in my portfolio mainly because I like the blown-out neon colors.
This print resides above my desk in California.
A small books and beads store contacted me during Obama's first election to design some bumper stickers which were intended for sale at the store Sweet Wind in Hawaii.
You may still find the bumper sticker if you travel to her store on the Big Island of Hawaii.
