Invitation, Favors, and Thank You

Illustrator May 2011

Many factors influenced the design of this custom suite,  but primary among them is the couple’s bi-coastal and international past (and future!)  Playing off  vintage airmail envelopes and passport stamps, a palette of bold red and blue and grounded by neutral beige, black, and white was chosen.  The limited color choices serve to provide consitency behind a mish-mash of line qualities and fonts.  The mock-stamp and gift are orginal illustrations.  The keystone design element, however is a world map with cities important to the couple identified and joined in the shape of a heart.  Bridal shower invitations, thank you notes, luggage tags for the suitcase favors, and custom printed chocolates round out the themed suite.

Pacific Bridge Marketing: What Happens in Vegas…

Ethernet Alliance at Interop Las Vegas

InDesign/Illustrator, April 2011

The design elements for this marketing campaign originated with an email header graphic.  The base graphic for the header was inspired by the datacom audience, utilizing a photograph of computer circuitry combined with some simple illustrated linear elements to reinforce the imagery.  Colors were chosen to coordinate with both the show graphics and the EA logo.  This look was subsequently expanded to large format booth graphics and a double-sided flyer.

Overview of Sensing Equipment Illustration for Presentation

Unfortunately, I am not at liberty to share the subject or identify my client for this project.  These terms are always disappointing when I am excited to share the final work!  The piece included a landscape illustration with several other small-scale  illustrations of equipment deployed within that landscape.  This graphic was intended to be used as part of a presentation related to a request for proposal.
