changing lives ::: print piece

Happy Monday! Today catalogs a recent print piece that I designed for a client.

In this digital world, physical print designs are few and far between (for me anyway). I love the story & transition that you get from holding something in your hands. This piece was developed by a media team of four including myself. And I'm probably most impressed with the ability to layer concepts/ideas through the transistions in this piece (which—it's often difficult to know if the viewer ever makes the connections).

So there you have a snippet of my graphic design work. Here's to having a great week, friends!

entre catering display

Time to share a fun client project with you! This past weekend was a display for another bridal expo booth. This time the clients were the chefs and food junkies of Entre - a company that currently specialize in secret underground dinners but are infiltrating the catering biz. *All St. Louis locals should check them out*

The goal was convey the message of fresh/local/quality and custom catering options. Three main ways used to convey this were images of past work (on a computer monitor not shown), yummy samples, and the vegetable bouquets. I absolutely loved arranging the bouquets—and smothering the table with lentils!

Overall a fun project - here's hoping it nets results.
