Bet you didn't know I was into powerlifting? Yep, that's right I am. The state director asked me if I was interested in designing the meet t-shirt, to which I said I yes. This was the design that won approval and from the National board, the meet director, and the meet host. I had to balance a lot of different elements with this one.
I did compete in this meet, but didn't do all that well. I went 6/9 on my attempts. At least, the shirt design was more successful than I was.

This is the accompanying POS sell sheet for the Empress Jumbo Towel. Fun part was designing the info graphic on the back of it and I will eventually develop these into a series of posters.

My client was looking for an unique identity for a private line of foodservice disposables. I submitted four different designs and after some wrangling, this was the approved logo. I am currently developing packaging for the various products that will fit underneath this brand umbrella. Later, I'll release some of the concept work.

Based upon the main, corporate catalog cover that I designed, this animated gif illustrates the various guides for different segments that the client's catalog can be split into. The design strategy I developed with the corporate look can be easily and coherently re-used for a variety of different lines.

Four concepts for a disposable glove brand that I developed as well as some of the other visual elements such as the icons featured below.
Concept 4 was my favorite because the look of it is the most high-end of the four.

At my present gig, I've been unifying the various print pieces that they have had in production prior to my hiring. I've worked hard on unifying the various pieces by bringing a single brand look, starting with the main catalog shown here. In later posts, I will reveal what the segment catalogs look like and how they relate to the main catalog above.

It was nice, as a designer, to not only design the logo, but design the packaging, the sell sheets, the email, and the web graphic – as well as do the product photography myself and write the copy as the one iteration above illustrates.
The launch of this product will be via the client's sales staff and social media.

These were instruction sheets that were not only in need of a rewrite, but a redesign. So I did. They came out quite nice I think and were definitely an improvement from the previous versions.

Just a quick mock-up of the product with label that I designed. I had to alter the logo a bit from the original to work with this type of 1-color flexo-printing and I was limited to a matrix of some 12 colors to work with.
This was a pretty quick design all-in-all. Just a few hours I had to come up with an acceptable solution.
Not very sexy I know... but it met the goals and timeline of the client.

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

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.

About three months ago, I took the job as Electronic Marketing Specialist with RJ Schinner. In this role, I do design and marketing, as well as manage a website and blog along with other marketing initiatives. It's been a good fit so far.
I started work on a binder to showcase our in-house sales and marketing efforts and the result is the artwork above. With almost no resources, I found royalty free and free use artwork online. The binder also features a spot color of Pantone 8422C -- silver metallic.
I think the result is pretty good. So far everyone has been pleased.
Its a high-end piece that RJ Schinner hasn't had before.

Browsing through some some old files, I found these images of an exhibit I design for the Shorewood Centennial exhibit back in 2000 as I was finishing up with college at UW Milwaukee. It was a pretty big project for me, while juggling my course credit load. The exhibit was a total 12 panels and tons of scanning. I also got to design the postcard for the event. (Left)
Somewhere I probably still have the Quark files for this project, but where? I have no clue. I hope I can find them someday.

I designed this project at DMC Advertising for the Milwaukee Zoological Society for the young professionals campaign a few years back. This postcard featured variable information and was printed with a clear varnish -- giving it a sleek, layered look.

One of a series of six graphics for various conferences I designed with a modular approach. The right side of the banner can be variable. The information changes per respective service line.
