PORTFOLIO

AUTOMATION ALLEY AWARDS GALA

Mobirise
The 2012 Automation Alley Awards Gala was in need of refreshing. The theme of the show was "technology growth." I developed numerous concepts but this "gear tree" was the overwhelming choice by the client. All the material for the campaign was developed and produced including posters, invitations, sponsorship brochures, programs, onsite signing and branding and save the date postcards. The campaign won a MarCom Gold award for excellence in marketing and communications.

CHRIST CHURCH ANTIQUES SHOW

Mobirise
The Christ Church Antiques, Garden & Desigin Show is the premier event at the church and the 2016 show was to be the 32nd and final one. The entire brand of the show was redeveloped and modernized. I partnered with one of the show's antique dealers to shoot images in his store for use in the campaign. The image of the boy in the hat was to be the centerpiece of the 2016 show branding. The campaign took two months to develop and produce and included posters, outdoor banners, banner stands, newspaper and magazine ads, email blasts, website, invitations, tickets and all on-site directional signing and programs. 

ESCAPES TELEVISION ROLLOUT

Mobirise
eScapes Television in Monroe was developed as "television you don't want to turn off." The concept was akin to Muzak for the eyes and the target audience was doctor and patient waiting rooms, affluent consumers, restaurants and other high end onsite businesses. I was brought in to create the eScapes rollout material. The campaign included promotional buttons, brochures, calendars and commecial DVD packages. 

WEB & MOBILE

Websites and Mobile Digital Content has taken over print as the medium of choice for businesses, large and small, looking to market to their target consumers where they live and work, online and in the palm of their hand. These are some examples of dynamic sites that look great on desktop, tablet and mobile. Various software and CMS packages have been used including WordPress, Drupal, Dreamweaver, Muse, iWeb, Mobirise, Wix and Squarespace.

I have 20+ years Print Design Experience and am an expert print coordinator, press checker and proofer. My experience and knowledge extends to offset, litho, web, digital, large format, screen and pad printing. I am comfortable laying out a quarter-page newspaper ad or, as the MotorCoach Living magazine above shows, a 96-page publication. 

BRANDING

Branding and Logo Design is quite possibly my favorite thing to do. The satisfaction of taking a person or company's vision or direction and turning it into something real, something that defines and motivates them, is truly rewarding. No two are the same and every single one presents new and unique challenges. These are some of my favorites. 

CD PACKAGING

Having spent 15 years in the Music Business developing artist album packages was a special treat. Working directly with artists and their management teams and labels to make the musical vision come to life is an experience I hope every Creative Director or Designer has a chance to experience. From directing photo shoots to identifying images to use for the release to writing copy and liner notes and the layout of the CD package, these examples are representative of amazing partnerships and creativity.
