In 2012 the Hope Flies Catch the Cure event found a new home at the Mason Murer art gallery. I adapted Matisse’s Fall of Icharus as the inspiration for the cover of the invitation, the ads, the announcements, posters and program. I also designed the event graphics, banners, signage and table tents, as well as consulting on event media.

Fireflies are used as both the FMM logo and in the Hope Flies event logos to represent the waxing and waning of energy as the cellular mitochondria disfunction.

Project Happiness, logo & web

Logo for Project Happiness

Ruth Culver needed a logo for Project Happiness, her website for her coaching business. The one I created was based on an image of a Passionflower. The  Stigma of the flower are represented in the logo which has a joyful, energetic reach.

Below, I worked with Ruth to develop a WordPress website in which she can communicate about her services and blog about happiness coaching.

Ninth Life Theatre Company, logo and web

The header for the Ninth Life website including the hand rendered type treatment logo.

The Ninth Life Theatre Company had a new play, “The Questionnaire”, written by and starring Christopher Birks and Robert Neumark-Jones accepted to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the 2011 Season.

The Company needed a web site up and running fast. Since two of the principals are writers, they needed something that they could edit easily and quickly.
It needed to be a little gritty and edgy to reflect the sort of plays they will be presenting.
Hand rendered type, created with a hand carved tool, photographed and digitally re-drawn in a vector format.

 

The cat, drawn from a photograph of a well-known Palmers Green feline, was created in Illustrator.

From Quilting Bees to QR Codes

Promoting the first QR Code Quilt

Nancy Feve Quilts

Quilt artist Nancy Fève decided to make the first interactive quilt using the QR Code. This quilt was the centerpiece of an exhibit at Williams Gallery in Cambridge, UK.

Here are a few examples of promotional work that I did for the exhibit, as well as the promotional additions to Nancy’s website, Fève Quilts.

Logo/Corporate Identity Designs

A few samples of my favorites in my portfolio:

This logo was for GrassTex, a textile company that produced artificial turf for sports areas.
This logo was developed for a charter school with an aviation focus, located in a mid-century modern building near Hartsfield Jackson International Airport (ATL) the busiest airport in the US.
This logo was developed for a concert musician who was noted for his wardrobe of ties and vests, which he changed during his concerts. This logo was used in a system, reflecting the variety of patterns and colors.
Logo for a company selling very traditional home decor products.
