Man's Best Friend is a short film by Natasha Blass and Alex Mallonee. Set in modern day San Francisco, the film depicts an evening in the life of Martin, a young, antisocial tech executive whose connections with other people exist solely through visage of his iPhone.
My work on this film was comprehensive and required involvement at nearly every stage of production. It included various logo & typographic designs, a style guide, graphic concepts, postproduction graphic assets for animation, apparel design, film posters, and other promotional materials.

Alternate Logo Explorations
I was commissioned to produce two posters for the film. The first was a teaser poster that was commissioned during preproduction and was designed to conceal the film’s plot and characters. The second was a hand-painted 27 by 41 inch character poster featuring the film’s protagonist, Martin, which debuted along with the film.
