Project info

The OCS Blog is an invaluable resource that helps prepare candidates for the grueling, transformative experience that is the United States Marine Corps Officer Candidate School. The client needed a short intro for his new YouTube and Instagram videos.

Process Notes

The initial references were modern and technological. As I got to know the client's brand and the Marine ethos, grit and authenticity began to make their way into the mood boards. We felt those qualities better captured the heart of the OCS experience and decided to go in that direction. This included a lot of Photoshop texturing and a bit of character animation, which brought to life a few of the challenges an aspiring officer would actually experience on their journey to graduation.
