What does a$10m Classic Car collection look like?

 

Jack Boyd Smith Jr. is a new face in the Classic Car collecting community. His passion runs deep, and has led to a rapid accumulation of rare and important automobiles. The JBS Collection is one of a kind. It is a testament to the craftsmanship of the automakers, as well as to Lavine Restorations, who oversee the collection’s restorations, maintenance, and presentability. In June of 2018, we were lucky enough to capture Jack’s story, and show off these amazing automobiles on film.

A user story featuring Joseph Jewell Wines

 

During the preorder launch of The Grid platform, I was contracted to pitch and create a user case story for the product. Alongside TJ Syndram, we crafted a pitch and a spec video to share with The Grid team in under 24 hours. We then took the approved concept and went to work.
