Terraces Direct Mail

This was a fun piece. Essentially it was a booklet that not only described the condo that were to be sold, but the attractions and various establishments around the neighborhood where this downtown Milwaukee condo development to be built.

I did the design of the booklet and even engineered the die-lines of the cover that held the booklet.

A to Zoo Milwaukee Direct Mail

Working with a team of directors and writers, I came up with the idea of "A to Zoo" and developed this direct mail piece and type treatment. This piece unfolded into a 18x24 poster.

It was received really well with a tremendous response rate and the Milwaukee county zoo had a huge spike in new members signing up for the zoo pass.

Polariod Sun 600

This is a Polaroid Sun 600 camera. I think I found this specimen at a local Milwaukee thrift store.

Again, this photo was shot in my home studio.

Antique Tobacco Tins

These are antique tobacco tins from my Grandpa Pickard that I shot in my home studio some years ago.

It's funny, but I can't recall a time when my grandpa ever smoked?

Hartland Train Depot

This vignette is of the old Hartland Train Depot. Since I've taken this photo it has been remodeled into office space.

I must admit, the building had a certain charm as a ruin.

Grandpa's Ledger

This is a studio shot I took of  my Grandpa Pickard's (born in 1900) ledger where he kept a record of his expenses when he was a farmer in northern Wisconsin.

It is a beautiful old document. Handling it always reminds me of him.
