When consulting with small businesses and arts organizations about brand identity and messaging, design is always part of the picture.  Developing effective marketing pieces to help excite and inspire audiences is vital to an organization’s success.  Designing campaigns for concert seasons, or creating posters and book covers, the work strives to convey the feel and flavor of what an organization wishes to communicate to their patrons.  The right mix is a blend of being utilitarian and delightful, requiring we organize the essential message succinctly and also in a visually stunning way.  My goal is always to create pieces that are bright and memorable.  I often work with arts organizations and small businesses, and the Festivals with whom I do Operations, as well.  In each project, it’s a joy to bring an idea to visual life for an audience.
