Life takes us interesting places…
For 30 years, I headed up marketing for the exhibit company I helped co-found. Upon leaving, I was hell-bent on immersing myself in photography, which had been a passion since high school. Recently though, I’ve found myself helping clients with marketing, graphics, logo design, and web-building activities as well. And I’m loving it. Following are just a few projects:
Lynn Moon, whose work you’ve seen in these pages, is an artist and entrepreneur. She’s in the process of founding a wonderful new not-for-profit organization, Art for Barks, to help support service dogs and the groups who care for these incredibly hard-working (and often under-appreciated) animals. Starting with a great choice of typefaces from Lynn, here’s the finished logo I helped design.
Ann & Stan Rosier (you’ve seen their work on these pages, too), are jewelry designers & teachers here in San Diego. They asked me to help out with their marketing activities. The first step was to design a new logo that reflected both their partnership and the sophistication of their work.
Linda Grisham Jean, whose work has also been profiled in these pages, started as a paper artist, working in a very cool art form called quilling, which uses strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create delicate, intricate and thoroughly beautiful designs.
More recently, she’s branched into other forms of paper sculpture and has become a masterful jewelry artist, with an emphasis on metal clay.
When it was time to redesign her logo, Linda wanted to retain the name by which she’d been known, while updating the look and style of her company’s identity. Here’s the result:
And though it doesn’t involve quilling, here’s an exquisite example of Linda’s recent paper sculpture.
I still love photography. And always will. I’m delighted to be able to expand the ways in which I can help my clients market their work.
