Given the vast amount of print material types— catalogs, postcards, flyers, stationery systems, not to mention books of poetry, art, history and other prose—I’ve had the opportunity to design many of them. Below are a few of my favorite pieces.
large format postcard created for Mayor Bobby Hopewell’s successful re-election campaign in 2013.
cover for The Kalamazoo Automobilist, a 500+ page history of car manufacturing in the Kalamazoo area. Detroit wasn’t the only place making cars in Michigan!
Friends of Poetry promotes the reading and enjoyment of poetry in everyday life. These are four covers I’ve created for some of their publications. Artifactory ties in poetry with artifacts in our local museum; The Poems That Ate Our Ears features poetry by school-age writers, divided into sections by grade level.
cover for a book featuring art and writing by participants in the Hours Project. The unifying theme was contemporary creations inspired by the historical Book of Hours format, popular in the medieval era.
Cover panel of the folded brochure that features text and images of historical points of interest for those exploring early automobile history in the Kalamazoo area.
