16:19 Here I am. Here WE are. We’re on the offensive against an invisible enemy. COVID-19 or “the Rona” or the coronavirus or “the wuhan” or whatever the hell you might want to call it has crippled the economy, devastated lives across the globe. Locally, It’s also caused a lot of problems, but somehow that’s hardly the most important news. […]

Operation Kilroy Passport

Occasionally a big client would request a job; this may have been one of the biggest. The D-Day Memorial and The WW2 Heritage Alliance requested a quote for printing a bunch of brochures but the layout was… rough to say the least.. I took the design to heart with some appropriate research and ended up putting more effort forth than […]

Political Campaigns

Political Campaigns; the most American way to test a designer. At minimum; a half-dozen prospective candidates have run their printing projects through me. I’ve designed numerous “walk-cards” or rack cards with political bullet-points and a graphic layout that communicates a person as the central subject. It’s been a challenge to do these because, more often than not, I’m completely unfamiliar […]

Serif Home

Oh Serif… This one was a wild one. Now I have to say that I can’t take any creative credit for this one. I didn’t come up with the design, I didn’t come up with any typography, but some of the verbage I had some input on. Basically, I was responsible for the organization of the project and boy did […]

Kinderdance International

One of those very different clients I worked with was Kinderdance International. In a nutshell, Kinderdance is a developmental dance program for children aged two and older. They approached us in search of someone who could manage their existing art files and make changes necessary to create printed pieces that they would, in turn, sell to their franchisees. Their art […]

Nu-tec Outdoors

There are all manners of companies that operate; many markets that I didn’t even know existed. I was approached by one of Minuteman Press’ clients that Owned and operated a Deer Mineral company named “Nu-Tec.” The client was creating some seed blends and mineral buckets that he wanted to introduce along with his existing products. We took the theme/style that […]

Cave Spring High School Football

So, this is where things get weird for me. I graduated from Hidden Valley High School in 2006. Our fiercest rival was Cave Spring, because we stole half their students when we opened the door. So ironically when I was responsible for the entire Cave Spring football program, I had to take care not to let bias get the best […]

18.08.29.hello again

I’ve done what I traditionally do, I’ve gotten lost in the day-to-day. I’ve reached a point where my motivation and my skills are at a blending point. This is usually when I pay attention to this website. Also, I’ve been alerted by payment requests to continue this domain. I will obviously continue this but I just thought it would be […]

Father’s Day : 17-06-18

Now, I know it’s not appropriate to toot your own horn but from last father’s day to this one feels like a mother effing flip side! In fact I’m going to go back and see what I was doing last father’s day right now! .I have returned. Finding out what I did was slightly more complicated than anticipated… Normally I […]

HOLY CRAP! 17-06-11

Holy Crap. How did this year move by so fast! I’ve been working, filming, designing, shooting pictures, flying drones, and being a father. My child is now almost a year and a half old and I’m going on a little under 8 months of employment as a full time graphic designer/ print production specialist. This is usually the part where […]
