Brand Photography

Upwork wanted to refresh their imagery so it speaks to its modern evolving landscape. The goal was to showcase global talent in a creative, relatable, and human way while highlighting different types of jobs and working setups. Photographer Emily Shur helped us bring the concept to life.

We evolved the way we showcase Upwork products by simplifying the visuals, creating custom 3D assets to represent each product and implementing the new brand id.


Digital campaign

For business decision makers and their teams, Upwork is the ultimate gift that keeps on giving during this busy time of year. We are providing the solution that keeps things on track in spite of all the holiday vacations and unplanned disturbances to their business. We frame Upwork as a "gift" that keeps things on budget, keeps projects on deadline, and keeps team spirits high. It’s the best gift you can give your team/business this holiday season.



Upwork’s year in review campaign.

I collaborated with Mane Sargsyan, illustrator on the Upwork platform, to create the lockup and spot illustrations for the year in review campaign. The goals were to come up with an ownable name and look and feel for the campaign and make the content unique and engaging for users. The executions were color coded to differentiate the audiences (client, enterprise, freelance and generic).

Digital Campaign
We launched a campaign to champion Upwork's optimistic stance on AI, highlighting its ability to boost human potential. This helped Upwork take the lead in a time when businesses and talent were worried about the drawbacks of AI in the workplace. We collaborated with motion designer Champ to craft an engaging and inspirational video to convey our message.
