Hudson Gardens Concert Series Print Campeign
Designed a series of promotional products for Hudson Gardens Summer Concert Series, including a printed magnet with the concert schedule, which came affixed to a postcard mailer, a full page ad for the Denver Post, and a "grass pass" for special access guests that was printed 2 sided on thick, clear plastic for added dimension to the design.  The guitar is actually made up of photos of flowers, taken at the gardens.

Creating vector drawings from photos
Here are a few examples of one color vector images I created from photographs I was provided. (Which are, of course, rasterized again, so I can show the drawing on this site.)
United States Antarctica Project
I've done quite a number of designs for the Antarctic Project over the years, mostly for apparel or promotional use. 
Logo Design
Most of my clients already have logos, but I do occasionally get requests for new logos.

USAP / NSF asked me to create a more accurate drawing of the continent for their logo

Box/Packaging Design
Custom box designs based on specs provided by the client, created dielines and kept branding consistent for various sized boxes.
Brochure Layout
A tree pamphlet for Hudson Gardens, half fold, with a larger fold out page, paginated for signatures. Also, two different voter guides, one designed in Korean from supplied translated word document. 
Online Shopping Welcome Screens
I have created a number welcome screens and headers for the online shopping tool taylored to specific clients.  I am limited to a certain extent by what our software allows, and they can only be viewed once the client logs into the system, but I must make sure it matches the aesthetic the client already appreciates.
Miscelaneous Projects

A 5 foot banner to promote Hill Campus of Arts and Sciences fundraiser night.
