  • 2. ROBERT BONDS I phone • 503.810.1411 I email • robhighway@gmail.com PHILOSOPHY Inspire and be inspired. Surround yourself with outstanding people in an environment which encourages everyone to simultaneously influence and be influenced. Be well informed and critical but leave room for accidents and recognize the successes of your failures; the best solutions are often arrived at rather than decided upon. As Bruce Mao once put it, “Harvest ideas. Edit applications. Ideas need a dynamic, fluid, generous environment to sustain life. Applications, on the other hand, benefit from critical rigor. Produce a high ratio of ideas to applications.” E D U C AT I O N Indiana University/Herron School of Art, B.F.A., 1992 Cranbrook Academy of Art, M.F.A., 1994 WORK EXPERIENCE Miller Brooks (Indianapolis) Graphic Designer 1991 Dean Johnson Design (Indianapolis) Art Director 1992 Freelance Designer/Art Director 1993-present Visual Resource Society 1994-2008 Pacific Northwest College of Art, Instructor in Graphic Design, 1998-99 Portland State University, Instructor in Graphic Design, 2004-2006

  • 10. Coke, “Circus” :60 We’re at a tent circus, the kind that plays small towns. Workers are busy preparing for opening night; tents are being erected, trucks are being unloaded, etc. We see a bear in a cage with a sign reading, “Benny the Bicycle-Riding Bear.” Some kids on bicycles roll by; they’re fascinated by the bear. The bear watches them, too. A moment between them. The kids stop at a concession stand. A Coke truck is there unloading for the night. The kids buy Cokes, then ride off. The bear watches them disappear into the distance. The Coke truck moves down the line of tents, now obscuring the cage – when we see it again, the cage is empty, the bear gone. MUSIC: Running Bear, by Sonny James (circus instrumentation) Cut to the road. The bear is riding his bicycle, away from the circus. The kids on bikes have been looping around the circus grounds, and now they come back and see the bear riding along. They’re shocked. From a distance, they follow the bear as he continues down the road. Soon the bear comes to the outskirts of a forest. The bear gets off his bike and lumbers into the woods. It starts eating berries and rolling in the grass – we get a sense that he’s at home here. The kids watch from the road drinking their Cokes and admiring the bear. In the final shot, the camera pulls back, revealing the kids with their Cokes, the bear deep in the woods, his abandoned bicycle, the circus grounds left in the distance, and the Coke truck driving away.

  • 11. Coke, “Fireworks” :60 In this spot, Coke shows us the beauty of summer in a magical new way. We go all across America, observing the natural world. The sights and sounds we experience will come together, subtly and elegantly, to resemble something that is iconic to the season: fireworks. Fireworks, created by summer: A lake, at night. A young boy leaps off a tire swing and splashes into the water. From under the surface, he looks skyward – the stars are refracted by the splash, as the rushing water booms in his ears… it looks and sounds like fireworks. Cut to a couple sitting on the back porch of a cabin, drinking Cokes. Below them is a field full of fireflies, winking in the darkness. At the edge of a deep canyon, a man tosses a rock. It clatters down the side walls, its echoes creating a distant boom, like explosions, as we cut to… …a full moon. A swarm of bats flutters between us and the moon, breaking up the light so it sparkles and glitters. Alaska. A fisherman is standing on the edge of the shore, drinking a Coke as he takes in the majesty of the Northern lights. Now we’re at a campsite in the mountains. A wolf howls in the distance, like the whistling ascent of a firework… then we hear the rumbling boom of thunder. A coast. Waves are crashing against the rocks. High above, clouds race across the night sky, making the stars wink in and out. A campfire. It pops and hisses, sending sparks into the night air. A gentle rain falls on a pond. The drops break up the reflected starlight. We hear the calls of owls and other night birds, like the soft pops of small fireworks. Heat lightning, as the wind whistles through a canyon. Then… …a quick series of thunderclaps, like a grand finale. All in different places: a moonlit field, a deserted road, a starry forest, etc. Then our final moment: A couple is cuddling on the beach, before dawn. Just as first light strikes the sky, the woman opens a Coke. We hear the pop, the fizz of the Coke, and then quiet.
