This is the outside of Anew's bifold brochure. Instead of placing these laryngoscopes flat, I wanted to give them more movement for the cover. I hung them with fishing line and let them spin and swing into angles I liked as well as giving me choices I hadn't thought of.
This is the inside of the bifold brochure. I took each of these images separately and then put them onto this blue background. It gave me better flexibility to manipulate placement.
This is the business card and logo I designed for Anew Medical Distributing. The main challenge was trying to convey the cool blue light that an LED light gives off because this was the primary thing that made their product so unique.
This is the cover I designed for Roo's songbook of spirituals. Below is a link to the website I designed for Roo.

Logo Design and Business Card and Stationery layouts for SEA OF COTTON. A clothing store that sells fresh produce sportswear in Maine run by Joyce Mallery and John Haskell.
George's work is all about healing through touch. His only request to me was to use the picture he gave me of his hand. From there I just went for an earthy warm inviting feeling.
Julia asked me to make a logo for her production company that elegantly showed her faith too. She liked the orchids I showed her, and the reflection lent itself beautifully to forming a cross.
Junkyard Dog is the production company that has produced such hits as the Tony award winning Memphis. For their logo I decided to go with some weathered paint and a typewriter font to indicate their commitment to writers of new works.
For the front of Randi's card I thought the emphasis should be on her company and the abundance of quality healthy products, without making it all about the individual products in the example basket. So I made the product shot more "painterly".
My solution on the back side of the card for displaying multiple baskets in an interesting way was to make the card square and not have any side be the top or bottom.
Lying in the grass and using my lensbaby lens to create the dramatic fall off in focus helped me create this image for the front of Patricia's card.
Rainey is a kooky, fun, beautiful dancer and choreographer. When I took this picture I knew I had to use it somewhere for her. And having the front of her business card be just her foot and the back side that happy laughing smile seemed perfect.
Basil is a gifted spoken word poet who can be seen as one of the Buffalo Soldiers in the Spike Lee movie Miracle at St. Anna. For his business card I took the word "ink" from the back of the card and used it to construct a drawing of his face for the front of his card.
Tripp and I went through a few incarnations of this logo concept attempting to make it with computer drawings and photographs until I finally decided to go old school and get out water color paints and paint it by hand. Below is a link to the website I designed for Healing Perspective.
This is the outside of the Manhattan Rhythm Kings trifold brochure. These guys are on the road a lot and I thought taking a picture of that old battle worn guitar case couldn't represent that any better.
This is the inside of the Rhythm Kings trifold brochure. My goal was to make the reader see what their style was right away without having to read any of the text, which would then encourage them to read. So I went with sepia tones from the era of their music, also making sure to emphasize the ever present red rose and red socks worn with their tap shoes. Finally, I added a faded background image I took of their long shadows and period microphone.
This is the book cover for a compilation of plays to be added to the Library of Congress. Christine quite often incorporates Chinese food into her Asian American stories. So this "All-American" picnic was the result of our collaboration. It's always nice to have a meal waiting for you after a shoot.

The ReImagined World Entertainment logo is typically in front of the moon, but for this version it seemed appropriate to place it in front of Wat's basketball since it was the business card we were using for our documentary TRANSCENDING The Wat Misaka Story.

Lolly was quickly becoming the go-to real estate broker for the Broadway community. So I took the corporate shots she brought to me and combined them with one of my own images of Times Square to create new signage and really get her name up in lights for this promo piece.

This was a logo I created for a dance company. It was also the first time I got to design a neon sign. I then added a photo I took of the owner of the company that had a lot of movement to it to make this collage.
