“A designer should have a willingness to read the material, to discuss it thoughtfully and passionately, and to develop visual components that expand the read while still working within the publication's architecture.”

Baby Blessing

We created a digital scrapbook page for a baby blessing book by simulating stitching, layers of paper and cloth, buttons, and shadowing to make it realistic.

Eulogy Poem

Redbuds were a favorite flower of a late friend. After taking a photo of a floral arrangement containing redbud and dogwood flowers we used Photoshop filters to create a soft feel for this poem.

Classic Car Poster

Using client provided photos, we silhouetted this car to remove it’s original background and placed it on this sleek auto-inspired background with the car’s model logo and year.
