A few of my favs – Some example of print and packaging work over a 20 year career. I’ve had some great experiences in some very diverse design environments, from working at New Idea magazine which is fast turnaround, to corporate and branding where your final ideas are locked in for years. Illustration is a specialty area and helps me with my first ideas. Word and PowerPoint are valuable skills but rarely design portfolio worthy. Below you’ll find a small sample of my work to demonstrate diversity and some of my favorite pieces.
