Graphic Design: Illustrated E-zine

You know what they say about the shoemaker’s children having no shoes? Well, I plead very guilty to that charge. Take, for example, my “Word, Pictures, and Design” slogan. You would think that I’d be in show and tell mode in my monthly Project Update e-zine. Yeah, you would think. But, up until this month’s…

Graphic Design: Capabilities Statement

Design projects that include photography are my favorites. While most of this combination work is for clients, some of my personal projects require more than one discipline. Take, for example, this website and blog, which involves design, photography, and writing. I recently had the opportunity to integrate these three disciplines while creating the Capabilities Statement…

Graphic Design: GermCats Logo

On this project, I worked with University of Arizona faculty member Donna M. Wolk, Ph.D., D(ABMM). This logo is for a UA microbiology educational outreach program. The program’s name is a play on the name of the UA school mascot, the Wildcat…

Graphic Design: No Desk Potatoes Logo

On this project, I worked with University of Arizona researcher Donna M. Wolk, Ph.D., D(ABMM). This logo will be used on a wide variety of items and will be combined with various taglines. No Desk Potatoes will be geared toward scientists and corporate types. The idea will be to not bury your mind in what…

Sloan Foundation to establish the Professional Science Master’s degree program. The Science Master’s is an M.S. degree that prepares students for work in fields such as consulting, banking, insurance,…

Graphic Design Using My Stock Photography

My stock photography collection covers a wide variety of topics – everything from the back roads of rural America to urban street scenes. They are available for use in your print and Web design projects. The photo on the front of this postcard is of an abandoned gas station that I encountered in Washington State…

Graphic Design: Gulf Coast Rising

Note: The following post refers to content that I have removed from my website. Reason: Flash is not supported by mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. This Flash slideshow uses photographs that I took on trips to the Mississippi Gulf Coast during November 2006 and July 2007. While in Mississippi, I worked with International Relief Teams,…

Graphic Design: Ambitions

When we think of graphic design, we often think of doing clever things with graphics. But why not with words? Designing with type is one of my favorite activities. The above postcard, which was sent to clients and prospects, is an example.

Graphic Design: Hard Work

This was a design-with-type exercise that ended up on a postcard to promote my studio. The sentiment expressed is one of my all-time favorites. It comes from a book on federal law enforcement job opportunities. Now, if you’re wondering why a graphic designer would read such a book, let’s just say that I’m a literary…

Graphic Design: No Bike Bans

Since I get around by bicycle, I have more than a passing interest in where bikes can and cannot go. Hence, I am quite opposed to bike bans, especially in these days of high gas prices, global climate change, and widespread obesity.
