March Madness - with a twist

My church stake was holding a friendly competition called "March Madness." The month of March was dedicated as a 'service month.' All the wards in the stake tried to get the most service hours. This hand-out was designed with Christlike service in mind. The doves represent that. One is reaching down to help another so that they both can fly. The type is beautiful and simple - just like service!

Redesign Filter Magazine

This was a school project that I really enjoyed. We had to choose a magazine that was trendy but had a lot of room for improvement. I chose the magazine Filter. I respect the way it's designed now, I just wanted to give it a more "high-fashion" feel. This is one spread for the feature article.

Profit Sharing Poster

I did this poster for work. The profit sharing meeting was for the whole company (roughly 500-800 people). This meeting usually has a bad rap of being excruciatingly boring so I implemented the corporate colors and made the flyer exciting with the tilted type and the speaker made up of type. I had a lot of fun doing this.

Bridal Shower for Stephanie

Stephanie is a very classy, feminine girl. I wanted her bridal shower invitations to show that so I got some of the most girly things I could thing of - flowers, polka dots, and pink. Success. :)

Park's Sportsman Winter Fest Sale Ad

Park's Sportsman is a local snowboard and ski shop. I designed these "bag stuffers" with young snowboarders and skiers in mind. The colors are slightly muted to represent the personality of all snowboarders I've known. They're all real chill, down to earth kids. The bold and distressed fonts make the piece a bit more masculine but not to the point that the female demographic feels left out.

Alpha Dog Brand Identity

Alpha Dog is a company that specializes in canine products, specifically crates and humane bandages so your poor puppy doesn't have to wear those cones around their heads. I wanted to create a look that represented the friendliness and the humanity of this company. The colors are bright and attention-grabbing while the logo itself shows why dogs are man's best friend.
