0 37signals Holiday Book 2012

January 15, 2013 — 10:04 pm

The employees of 37signals remembered my craft in creating the holiday gifts they received in 2011. They came to me with the task of designing and crafting the holiday gift they would give the co-founders of 37signals in 2012.

I designed and bound an edition of two books that featured spreads of words and images created by each of the employees. Again, it was a great experience to work on such a tangible, traditional product for such a technology-driven company.

0 Cinema Slapdown Illustrations

Cinema Slapdown is one of my recurring clients at Columbia College Chicago. When I was first approached to do a movie poster for their next showing, I was excited to have a chance to do something I haven’t been required to do much of yet in my career: illustration.

Below are two examples of illustrations for Cinema Slapdown film events: Shame and The Help. My work has given a new look to Cinema Slapdown which has been well-received by the client and the audience members. I have also worked on illustrations for several other film showings and have another in the works. I hope to keep illustration in my design work and can’t wait to explore more styles and ideas in the near future.
