Anyone that knows me personally knows about my love for the Dallas Mavericks. When Mark Cuban announced he would host a design contest for the next Dallas Mavericks jersey my two biggest passions Mavs and creative design got set on a collision course. The result was something pretty spectacular.
This design was a Top 10 finalist out of thousands of entries from all over the world in the very first crowd-sourced NBA jersey design contest hosted by Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban via Crowdspring. The design was picked by a number of news outlets as the best design of the finalists including NBA/Hoops/Fashion magazine Dime Magazine. The contest process narrowed down more than 1,000 entries to just 10 and then to one winner based on fan vote last summer. The Skyline was selected by a fan vote to be the new Dallas Maverick jersey.
Other news publications that highlighted the design:

Another Gearbox Software project I had an opportunity to be apart of. I'm a a huge fan of both Ridley Scott and James Cameron so it was insanely cool to work on this project.
Described as a true sequel to James Cameron's film, the story of Aliens: Colonial Marines takes place after the events of the second film, Aliens, and sometime after the events of Alien 3, as the cryotubes containing Ellen Ripley, Corporal Hicks, Newt, and the android Bishop had ejected from the Sulaco. At PAX East 2012, Gearbox Software's Community Manager confirmed that the game is considered an official part of the Alien franchise's canon by 20th Century Fox. Much of the main plot was written by Battlestar Galactica writers Bradley Thompson and David Weddle. The story is told through the eyes of Corporal Christopher Winter, a Colonial Marine who is part of a search and rescue team sent to investigate the U.S.S. Sulaco in search of Ellen Ripley, Corporal Dwayne Hicks, and the rest of the missing marines who were dispatched to LV-426. The Sulaco, and the derelict alien spacecraft from Aliens as well as LV-426 itself will all serve as environments in the game, as well as other locations.

Another project I was lucky enough to be able to be apart of at my time at Gearbox software. This was my favorite out of all the games I've worked on because it was completely conceptualized and developed internally at Gearbox so the creativity was running rampant. It was amazing to see all the new ideas come to life every morning. I also got the opportunity to bounce a few of my own personal script ideas and get pointers from the brilliant writers for the game Anthony Burch and Mikey Newman.

My very first video game project at Gearbox software.
In Brothers in Arms Hell's Highway you join Matt Baker, Joe Hartsock and the rest of the 101st Airborne Division in Operation Market Garden as they fight to open the infamous Hell's Highway in a daring bid for a quick end to the war. The classic authentic, squad-based combat series explodes on next-generation hardware, offering unprecedented graphics and features.
Live the life of an enlisted man: Get orders from HQ, go on patrol, spot the enemy and set up a devastating ambush. For the first time, finding the enemy before they find you is part of the challenge.
Unprecedented character design: Lifelike characters look, talk, move and think with incredible realism. Game characters interact with the player and each other like true brothers in arms, trading ammunition, helping wounded allies and civilians, working together to man team-operated weapons, and more.
Rich cinematic experience: As the squad leader, you interact with and get to know your brothers. Each character has his own distinct personality, unique story and background, and grows throughout the game.
Powerful new units under your command: Players can use or command combined arms teams - machine gun crews create intense fire, bazooka crews destroy buildings and tanks, and mortar crews pound the enemy from a distance.
Play your own way: Players can choose to use their squad to execute a tactically elegant flanking maneuver or charge in with guns blazing.
Destructible cover: Keep your men moving and choose your cover wisely - modeled using real physical properties and behaviors, weapons will damage, dent, scorch and destroy the world around you.
Completely new multiplayer experience: Fight major multiplayer battles with dozens of players on each side, combining all the intensity and accessibility of Deathmatch with the squad-based gameplay that helped make Brothers In Arms® famous.

RSVP Records - Logo Design and Branding
ROBERT ’SPUT’ SEARIGHT LAUNCHES RSVP RECORDS.
Robert ‘Sput’ Searight and Ropeadope announce the launch of RSVP Records, a new LA based label headed by Sput Searight and connected to the Ropeadope family of labels. The first release on RSVP will be the debut album from Ghost-Note, the drum and percussion based project from Sput and his Snarky Puppy compatriot Nate Werth. Fortifiedis scheduled for release on October 16, 2015.
Robert Searight is held in high esteem by his peers and fans alike. His credits are lengthy - from work with Kirk Franklin, Snoop Dogg, Timbaland, Erykah Badu, Cheryl 'Salt' James, and Justin Timberlake, to his years drumming and helping to shape the Snarky Puppy sound, to his most recent work with Shaun Martin and Kendrick Lamar. The Grammy winner expands the world’s notion of the drums as he constantly evolves and pours his soul into the music. Sput is the quiet and brilliant force that propels a band in new and powerful directions. Yet it is his work as producer that awaits the full understanding and recognition, and RSVP is the start of a new phase in his career.
‘Music often serves as a tour guide, and when placed in the right hands, the journey can take one further inside themselves than they ever dared to consider. It can provoke change of behavior and plant seeds of dreams to come. It is the soundtrack to our lives, and yet, we don’t truly acknowledge the power it has to actually charge the energy surrounding us.’ (Robert Searight)
