EYE FOR COLOR

Co-creating an interchangeable color wheel system and additional warm and cool earthtone sets, took my packaging chops to another level. From inception, through design and intricate die cuts, to custom snaps that cleverly hold wheels inside, Beverly Ash Gilbert and I worked through it all. Teaching how to pull harmonious colors together is Beverly’s jam. Send me a note to see this piece in person.

RAISING LUCY coloring storyBOOK & video

Carol Muzik’s story about raising an orphaned baby goose is a multi-media situation. Here she created a coloring storybook with a bonus video presentation. Carol drew detailed line drawings that I scanned and retouched each of them along with layout, video art and titling.

habitat for humanity

Working with our community for Habitat for Humanity has been an honor. Their annual benefit breakfast delivers uplifting stories of success and asks us to think about and support programs that make a difference beyond measure. For four years, I provided design work to help convey a message of building hope, pride and community. This piece is a personal favorite.

PARTNERS MORTGAGE

Introducing a unique mortgage product to investors needed to convey trust and a purely northwest vibe. My motif of iconic Mt. Rainier and evergreen forests, and a bright view of the Seattle skyline delivered on that goal.

RAISING LUCY

One of many collaborative pieces with author, illustrator, ‘goose mom’, Carol Muzik, was in the publishing of her amazing true story of raising an orphaned wild goose. Carol wrote and artistically illustrated the story, and then digitally painted in rich, saturated tones. I designed the cover and pages to immerse readers with the magical feeling of raising Lucy from innocent orphan to her full, wild, potential.

THE CLEAR GROUP

Award-winning media pros know the ‘real’ reasons why communication can go flat and offer experiential tools for revealing the communicator inside. The design of ‘Clear’ is crisp inside the area of focus where the oft blurred aspects of effective speaking are revealed.
