Nuvio Folder Cover

This is the cover from a pocketed folder design used at most of our trade shows. The folder was part of our deliverables at the shows, and was consistent with all our other advertising efforts that year.

Cogistics Icon series

These were part of a series of icons for an internal application, used for monitoring shipments and reporting status.

Daily Coffee Newspaper Ad

These are part of a series of ads that I did for a local coffee shop in Bozeman, Montana. I used a series of retro B&W photos and wrote some endearing copy. Along with these newspaper ads we used them for mailers and flyers.

Cinch Jeans App

Designed an app for the National High School Rodeo and Cinch Jeans. I was going to program this in Actionscript but I got a new job just as I was about to start this project, so it was outsourced for completion.

Bentley Film Festival Poster

This was for a regional film festival. The idea of the festival was to shoot on Super 8mm film, so I wanted a retro look on the poster. I photographed the model up against a wall and used Photoshop to create the ultra-contrast. The rest was put together in Illustrator.

BTC Distance Education Poster

This was part of a series of posters I created for this Distance Education Center on the campus of Montana State University. I had access to a NASA/JPL database of some of the most amazing photos from space. I used several of them with these posters and many of my own shots of Montana, using

Mr. Beap Gets Fired – Episode 1

Take one ordinary guy… Insert one ordinary V-Chip… in his brain, and you get… Mr Beap. In this episode Mr Beap is quickly introduced to “management speak”. All animation, voices, editing, and writing are done by Kirby Cobb

Touched – Movie Poster

This is the movie poster for an independent film entitled “Touched: Body, Soul & Credit Card”. It played nationally and when it premiered in Germany, the theater kept the poster to hang in their lobby as decoration. Why did I just tell you that? I’m not sure…maybe a little bit of shameless self-promotion? I don’t

Hot 103 Jamz 15 sec TV Spot

So, don’t blame me for the logo…it was thrust upon me and I tried to animate it in the best possible manner. The audio tracks for these Hot 103 Jamz commercials was done by an amazing audio engineer at the station. I then animated the visuals to match the audio.https://vimeo.com/17962071

Kansas City Time Lapse

These are a couple time lapse experiments in various locations around Kansas City. I also played around with depth of focus in After Effects.

Animated Gears

Check out what I made today. This is based on some stock artwork from my job. We’ve been using the photo image in all our online and print ads, but I needed an animated version for some trade show videos…so I re-created and animated (it’s alive!! ALIVE!!!) …and it’s set-up to loop if needed.

Volunteer Engagement Video

Spent the day volunteering at the Hope Distribution Center. Interviewed all the key people and edited a short video to engage new volunteers. The goal was the showcase the activities at the Distribution Center and introduce potential volunteers to their surroundings and tasks.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O41nOnkcOwI&t=3s

Bentley Film Festival Poster

This was another poster for our regular Super 8mm Film Festival. I re-used a photograph from another poster and degraded the image, adding film frames to exaggerate the difference between Super 8mm film and the current digital trends.

Cogistics Magazine Ad

This was the back cover of a regional sports magazine. The client was an official sponsor for the football team and wanted  something sports oriented. So I put their logo on a football and tried to incorporate a coach’s play diagram.

Cogistics Magazine Ad

Most trade publications are PACKED with ads and information, all jumbled together with everyone screaming their offers…much like newspaper advertising.  With this ad, we decided to play with negative space and attract the reader with simplicity and emptiness.

Cogistics T-shirt Design

This was an original design for a trade-show give-away t-shirt. The client asked for a black biker style t-shirt, so this was printed on a full-sleeve black t-shirt.

Mr. Beap Goes to the Store – Episode 2

Take one ordinary guy… Insert one ordinary V-Chip…in his brain, and you get…Mr Beap. In this episode Mr Beap has to “patiently” deal with his local convenient store owner and a Darwin Award nominee.https://vimeo.com/99957847

Custom Homes Made Easy

This was an intro header piece for a client website. I was sub-contracted by the web designer to create and animate an intro based on their script. I did the voice-over, 3D modeling and animation using Sketchup, Cinema 4D, and After Effects.https://vimeo.com/17962439

Hot 103 Jamz 30sec Spot

Well, this one was more fun. I like these 30sec spots better, more music oriented and brand conscious. I found some good music video sources and was able to match the audio sources.https://vimeo.com/18035416

Mr. Beap Goes to the Drive-Thru – Episode 3

Take one ordinary guy… Insert one ordinary V-Chip…in his brain, and you get…Mr Beap. In this episode Mr Beap has to deal with ordering a simple hamburger. Seriously, what could go wrong?https://vimeo.com/99957845

One Night Stand Poster

One of the posters from the best Kansas City film event…The One Night Stand. You have one day to write, shoot and edit a short film and then you must show it that night. More fun than should be allowed to legally happen to a group of people.

Cogistics T-shirt Design

This was a t-shirt design corporate SWAG. They wanted a shirt that would be reminiscent of the 70’s hotrod shirts. I also needed to incorporate the logistics idea, and since trucking is the majority of their business it was perfect to mutate into a hotrod. This was the original sketch. From here I took a

Innovation Center Promo Video

Motion design and editing of this promotional video for a new Innovation Center in Des Moines. This was intentionally distributed without any sound to be played at Trade shows, background screens, and sales presentations.

PKD Foundation Animation

This was a short 5-sec intro for a fund-raising video they were having produced. I mocked up several ideas…this is the one they chose. This is an alternate version I produced to give them a variety of ideas to chose from.

OnTarget Web Animation

This is another website header animation. I made this to loop on the site without being too obnoxious upon repetition. It was all done in After Effects and then looped in a Flash player for web delivery.https://vimeo.com/100067476

Marel Show Teaser Video

We were setting up an email campaign with targeted invitations. This is a teaser video shot for distribution on our website landing page. It announces our upcoming in-house trade show.

Superstarlet A.D. Poster & Flyers

Designed a flier/poster for a local premiere of an underground film showing here in Kansas City. They were also showing a short film along with this feature and I made up a flier for that screening. These were all distributed to the local coffee shops, pubs and telephone poles. The things we do for “art” (insert

Cogistics Icons

These were used as a series of icons for their public facing website. They were also used in a variety of print applications, ads, mailers, billboards, CD designs, etc.

Hotdog Peeler Demo Video

How do you peel 500 hotdogs in 2 minutes…you use 7 cameras and one run of hotdogs. This was the longest setups and the quickest shoots I’ve ever been on.

Seafood Weighing and Grading Video

This was a great project that took me up to Port Hardy, British Columbia…far up on the northern point of Vancouver Island. There is a salmon processing plant there that was built with many Marel products. Most notably, their weighing and grading systems. This video shows the start to finish production line of the salmon

MaxSpace Animated Intro

This was an animated into for several infomercials from this company. This was all done with Flash animation so the client could also use this easily on their website without any heavy video loads.https://vimeo.com/99955677
