The Corporate Leadership Roundtable event was aimed at a younger audience than Larkin Street’s usual fundraising events. They asked me to find and use trendy illustrations to advertise the event on social media. I had a lot of fun working with these bold, colorful illustrations purchased on dreamstime.com.
This was Coro’s 2nd virtual spring event since the pandemic started. The theme this year was “The New Leadership Landscape”. They usually let me play with different concepts and ideas and it’s a lot of fun. In the first round we really loved these little paper boats for their visual simplicity but Coro worried that we would run into trouble for cultural appropriation. That hadn’t even occurred to me, but
Eight Two / Misha asked me design his most recent cd. I was super excited about this project but also really nervous. What if I didn’t like the music? What if my designs didn’t live up to the standard he’d already set with his previous albums? What if he just didn’t like my designs? Misha is my brother-in-law, there was a lot at stake. 🙂 First, I felt privileged to
I designed this site taking a lot of cues from the logo I designed and Melinda’s “Speak in Flow” program concept. Throughout the site I’ve used different curving, flowing lines and shapes to illustrate her transformational program on how to get over your fear of public speaking. http://www.impowerall.com/
Here I am pushing the limits with bold, bright color. These are proposed site design mockups. The client decided to go in a different direction with her site but I still like these so I’m sharing them here! 🙂 Photo credits: Joshua Coleman on Unsplash, Emma Matthews Digital Content Production on Unsplash, Igor Kasalovic on Unsplash, veeterzy from Pexels.
Before the pandemic shut things down, I was BUSY doing lots of different projects for a company that makes accessory dwelling units. They had me designing ads, infographics, website landing pages, giant fence wraps, creating floor plans and even these super fun animated birthday cards. WordPress isn’t allowing my animated gifs to work, but imagine the flames flickering and confetti blinking. (Photo by Angèle Kamp on Unsplash)
Coro Northern California asked me to design for their annual spring event again. When the pandemic hit they switched to a virtual event so all the printed pieces weren’t necessary. The event banner design was a variation on the one I’d done the previous year. It was used in all of their event emails, letterheads, forms and google slides.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Perfect Details since 2007. Over the years I’ve formatted and touched-up hundreds (thousands?) of jewelry, shoe and accessory photos. It’s fun and very satisfying! I also design their social media ads and homepage images. In 2017 I helped with some art direction of their new site and updated their logo.
The Positive Pedalers asked me to design their event materials for a second year. The event and materials were more simplified this year. But still just as bright, colorful and fun to design. Here I’m showing the Event Brite banner, the Facebook advertising post, and the one-page printed event program.
AIDS/LifeCycle is an event and cause close to my heart. I love the event, the community, the JOY surrounding it. When groups associated with AIDS/LifeCycle ask me to volunteer some design time, I’m always happy to help. And because it’s pro-bono, they’re usually not that picky about what I submit, so it’s a time for me to have some fun with design. 🙂 Here I’m showing the dinner program cover
