Wedding suite

August 10, 2014

Never before have I been, and probably never again will I be, asked to design a wedding invitation featuring the Millennium Falcon. The trick with these sci-fi-themed wedding pieces was to keep them classy-looking with a touch of whimsy. It was all thoroughly enjoyable, especially since I got to draw a map, one of my favorite things.

Christmas concert program 2011

December 7, 2011

This client is particularly fond of medieval church architecture. I had a feeling, a couple of years ago when I took photos of the Strasbourg Cathedral, that they might come in handy for one of my church-related projects. If only you could see the shimmering metallic gold and purple inks instead of the flat hues in this humble screenshot. That would almost make up for not being there in person to see the red Vosges sandstone, aflame with the rays of the setting sun.

Performing Arts Series 2011–2012

July 27, 2011

This concert series brochure employs an enticing fold that suits the title on the outside, “Come and Hear.” Unfold it once and you see an introductory paragraph and a photo (my own) of the church entryway. Unfold it once again and you see the entire concert series on one spread.

Performing Arts Series 2010–2011

October 15, 2010

Park Cities Presbyterian Church asked me to design the brochure for its 2010–2011 Performing Arts Series. We used two metallic Pantone colors, a copper and a deep gray-blue. I was very pleased with the subtlety of the blue instead of black, a change which was suggested by the client.

Performing Arts Series brochure 2009–2010

August 24, 2009

For this season’s concert series, I featured a striking image of one of the church sanctuary lamps on the cover and had the mailer printed on felt paper rather than the usual smooth glossy stock. I got a lot of positive feedback about this one.

If you look at the concert posters for this season, you will see how the elements of this brochure were subtly incorporated to suit a variety of concerts.
