On newsstands now. I couldn’t be more proud to be a contributing designer at POST Magazine… or friends with the super-talented Shanna Murray and Chuck Eblacker. Putting both joys together in this feature story for the May/June issue was truly a labor of love.

Where do we go from here? The Lower School at Harley (nursery to grade 4) is willing to bet that a confident curiosity will lead the way for the next generation of innovative problem solvers. My writer partner Dan Mulcahy and I created this direct mail campaign to spread the word. Turtle illustration by Chris Lyons.

All wrapped up. This holiday gift wrap kit created for commercial printer Canfield & Tack makes Santa’s life easy breezy. Cheers!

There’s a fresh new (print) magazine in town and I helped create this online tease for the first issue: www.postrochester.com

Wake it up. Nancy Stahl’s illustration brought this summer love to life.

Style by Rumors. Taking cues from top-rated style blogs, my writer partner Robin Lohkamp and I created a new online presence for Rumors Salon & Spa in Albany. Anchored on the homepage by “blog” posts, this fresh site is destined to be a go-to source for style services and substance, trends and inspiration, DIY events and all out gorgeousness. This keeps the new site constantly current and ever-evolving. Take a peek at http://www.stylebyrumors.com/. Big thanks to Andrea Zuegel, Dave Vogler and Matt Calabrese for all your fabulousness and Customericity for the project opportunity.

It’s a tree. No it’s a calendar. My writer partner Robin Lohkamp and I offered up a way for print managers Canfield & Tack to delight clients (old and new) this fall with a ready-to-decorate desktop ficus. No messy watering, falling needles or sticky sap. Some assembly required. Gaudiest decorating wins a $100 gift card. Oh Joy!

What the Fringe? Rochester, NY had never seen a festival like this before. My creative partner Kate Sonnick and I developed work that conveyed the diverse, creative spirit of this inaugural celebration of known and emerging performing artists. The comprehensive project included identity design, poster ads, t-shirts, online creative and several other elements. The festival was a huge success—attendance was more than double the number expected.

Keep moving through darkness to find your way into the light. Blue Sky Project is a not-for-profit film company that creates and distributes documentary films focused on underreported social issues that shape an open and enlightened society. Its goal is to inspire ideas and action for real and lasting change. I collaborated with Scott Wolf and Kate Sonnick to create a website that communicates and supports this mission. http://bspfilms.org/
