We developed a logo and promotional items for an industrial maintenance product manufacturer, that also worked as an incentive program. For a limited time, the company shipped "Building Maintenance Pro" T-shirts and hats with selected products. The idea was to provide incentives but also to provide enough shirts and hats for customers who were largely contractors and facility maintenance managers, that they could give them to their work crews who would be applying the products.

"Of courserous, can't you?"

Here is a marketing piece I did for Dr. Agnes Thomas, a highly sought-after speaker on animal mysticism. For the third printing of the book Pets Tell the Truth, which I helped her with, and her Animal's Tell the Truth, Wisdom Cards, which I designed. The flyer has also used as a magazine ad and a catalog ad. Click on the image for a closer look!

Do not pass go...

The client was an award-winning custom home builder that had a great deal of info they wanted to convey in a magazine ad. We needed to include the company info, a variety of home styles, and highlight several specific property areas, with individual contact information. We came up with the iconic property themed board game look that makes a distinctive statement and created a structure to organize everything into a fun eye-catching magazine ad.

Ad libbing

I developed marketing materials for a plan to coordinate a publisher's print and web advertising programs, also developing a program for promotional monthly email newsletter for advertisers. Using material from the publisher's individual annual community magazines to create a monthly composite e-magazine to be mailed to all advertisers across the companies entire magazine line. To increase communication during the year with annual advertisers, and to increase awareness of the entire line of magazines with those advertisers, encouraging ad sales from existing clients in additional community publications. Below are some of the marketing materials for the ad sales marketing kit.

First post, second blog...

Instead of having a regular website for my new business, I thought it might be more interesting to have a blog. A sort of company newsletter. So I could post current work and preview upcoming projects. And it's been working so well I decided to split my design and illustration work up into two separate blogs. So this blog will be catching up as I transfer some work over here, and post new projects as well.
