Unique Invitation


I wanted an original format for this invitation for Simonini Builders. I designed an 8" square card with rounded corners on heavy coated cover stock with a dramatic image on one side and info on the back. It fit into an 8.5" square translucent envelope.

Lucky Country Brochure


This simple brochure for Lucky Country Soft Gourmet Licorice was designed for an international trade show. The colorful cover is meant to grab attention, while the inside copy discusses the benefits to retailers of carrying this popular product.

R&R BBQ Christmas Rhyme Ad

This ad for R&R Bar•B•Que covers the many things they offer during the holidays: bulk BBQ or catering for parties, gift cards as stocking stuffers, or a relaxing sit-down meal after a trip to the mall. A larger version with a map and sample menu ran in the local paper. Their Eastern NC style BBQ is quite popular in Western NC!

New Oregon Basketball Court Design


The University of Oregon is all set to move into their new basketball arena, and the court itself is a work of art created by Nike VP of Innovation Tinker Hatfield (The University is blessed to be in the shadows of Nike Headquarters, ensuring they can compete nicely in the arms race of facilities in major college sports). Hatfield used the court as a palette in a way no one really has before. Many will no doubt copy, but this is groundbreaking. Great idea, and nicely executed.

GAP Logo Fiasco



GAP introduced a new logo and everyone hated it. But in the heat of distancing themselves from the new logo, they announced they would crowdsource a new design, accepting submissions. Not that I'm a fan of crowdsourcing — I think a designer should be hired and paid — but I immediately had this idea of a sleek logo where the P would curve around and connect the A and G. By the time I had played around with it, GAP announced they would just revert back to the old logo, and sorry for bothering us. Oh, well.
