Produced for the Cuyahoga Valley National Park Association, to
comemmerate the Tenth Anniversary of Ohio's historic Towpath Trail, this
is one of my favorite examples of publication design. I served as both
Production Manager and Art Director, taking the project from start to
finish, this twenty-four page piece was put together in two days,
meeting a print deadline that couldn't be missed!

people to publish. If you'd like to self-publish book, but don't want
to do all the work, I can help. Send me an email and I can tell you
This is a marketing piece I just designed for a great company that does disaster clean-up and restoration. The owner seized

This was great fun for me. I designed this entire deck of 54 animal
cards, and I saw it through every step of the publishing process,
including package design. I am currently working on designs for a new
box for the second printing.
