Freshly redesigned inside page of Coastal's "look book" for 2013.
Cover for Coastal, Inc.'s 2013 "look book" that I just recently redesigned.
Since these were to be handed out, I wanted the designs to have an air of excitement and fun. Series of 4.
Second in the series of 4.
I was hired to create posters with inspirational quotes that would be put up around town on popular running routes. I wanted them to be "loud."
Working from old Mexican calendrio art, I designed this calendar using a painting by the very talented TONI WOLF. We set up a photo shoot using a restaurant employee as a model. Then Toni proceeded to create a magical painting. I took it from there.
I was provided with the headline and tinkered with several ideas before going with the ties. Each tie has images of something you'd get a loan for, get it?
I created a web banner based on some other materials the company uses. I was then hired to sharpen, color correct and resize most of the images for the web site.
One of several outdoor metal signs I have designed for El Rayo.
One of several ads I have designed for El Rayo. This one appeared in Maine Magazine.
I designed this poster to convey the mood of this off-the-grid style independent film. A little creepy.
Ever notice that a large percentage of real estate logos are BLUE? Yeah, I wanted to get away from that with this design.
The Davin & Small Team hired me to create a large business card of sorts to hand out at open house events.
Backside of card for the Davin & Small Team.
The show consisted of three one-act plays, all a bit quirky. One took place in a bathtub. I shot the photos of my own tub and bathroom at the time.
The director wanted the play to have a surreal quality, as if all was not as it appeared at first. I created the photo illustration from two different photos.
I wanted to convey that this was an offbeat, lively show.
I was able to get my ink and nibs out, then scan in my line drawings, colorize them in photoshop and arrange a nice composition.
In the winter, the theater puts on a cabaret-style show full of music, dance and shorter pieces. Again, I wanted to show the offbeat side of things.
To stay within budget this piece needed to print just black on white. Having a great portrait to work with was a big help.
This is the first spread of the catalog. I color-coded the rest of the sections to correspond to the table of contents. It works!
I created the photo illustration on the front by using several photos of the instructor and fading them together.
I was hired by Spectrum to design a racing singlet for their employees to wear in the Beach to Beacon Race. My first design was edited because: "Men won't wear TEAL." Uh, ok.
Maps are difficult to design! Luckily, this is of the town I live in, so I was familiar enough with the roads to know what I could leave out.
I did lots of color correction on these photos to make the glass look right.
The client is a music writer who also sells vintage hardgoods... I think this says all that and more!
This client owns two insurance agencies in adjacent towns. She needed two logos that were similar, yet different. I drew each skyline - Gorham is a small town dominated by a church.
