This site currently displays samples of work from three different clients to show the consistency and range of my work. I currently design for both print and web medias--from brochures and newsletters to web graphics, ecards (static and animated), and website maintenance. I've been working as a freelance graphic designer for 10 years.
Client from 2009-present. I started working with Washington Mills in 2009, creating banner and tile ads to be displayed on industry publication websites. To cut costs, they wanted to limit the actual mailing of holiday cards and marketing postcards, replacing them with eblasts. I was contacted to create photo manipulated images that incorporate their products (raw materials for the ceramic industry). I have also worked with them on animated ecards. Samples of ecards are available upon request.
Using Adobe Photoshop, this image was created using four photos (not including their product photos), text and logo. There was one flower photo that was colored, and whose head was rotated to give the appearance of five different flowers. One butterfly photo was used twice, but colored to make it appear different.
This President's Day image was created using two photos (not including product photos), text and logo.
This image was made up of four photos, as well as individual product photos. Shading of the pumpkins and gourds was done digitally by hand using Photoshop.
Client from 2009-present. I was originally hired by the Society of Glass and Ceramic Decorating Products to redesign their logo and create materials for their annual conference. I now design their brochures, conference signage, and newsletters, as well as update their website.
I was hired to make over this website (including banner), giving it a fresh look and feel. I currently do most of the website updates for sgcd.org.
This is the cover of the program for the SGCDpro's yearly conference, DECO. This was their 50th anniversary, so I modified the logo to appear as a special anniversary logo for the year. Gold and black were used to tie in that the conference took place in Pittsburgh, and a more formal color scheme marked the anniversary.
At first I was designing just the cover for SGCDpro's annual directory, but was recently hired to design both the cover and the full 48 page layout.
Part of sgcd.org is the exhibitor showcase page, which highlights all exhibitors for SGCDpro's annual DECO conference. Each year I update this page with the design style I used to create the DECO program. I also create a new logo each year for the the conference.
Client from 2006-2010. I created house banner and tile ads for websites of both Ceramic Industry magazine and Adhesive and Sealants Industry magazine. In 2010, a change in publisher resulted in ads being move to in-house production for these and several other magazines.
"Hot Dog" was the first piece created in a series that led me to create a dachshund series. This piece was created for an assignment using photo manipulation. It contains the main photo, two photos of the dachshund (back to back to give extra length), and a photo of ketchup and mustard.
