Through this website and blog it is my hope to offer news bits about current graphic design challenges (my own and others) as well as fine art news. To continue with the theme of my new book, "Graphic Design Exposed," this blog will expose the development of graphic design and fine art projects. From time to time I will invite guests to blog here in order to keep the news and views fresh and informative.Please click on the orange and white envelope icon to receive email updates.
Madre Verde’s founder, Elizabeth Ortman wished to have a logo that encompassed her deep spiritualism, love of nature and of yoga. Elizabeth told me that she envisioned a mother cradling the earth. Sharing Elizabeth’s spirituality, and love for nature and yoga, I leapt into action. Many images came to mind while working on the logo. I like the circular movement of Picasso’s old man and guitar, the foot position of the Sarnath Buddha and the yin yang symbol. Elizabeth always wears her long hair in two braids. I tried to capture the braid in the logo without adding too much detail.Pin It
This is a new craft I learned during my recent trip to Israel, where the shops all use colorful thin plastic bags. Bad for the environment greatfor making plarn projects. I think these can be considered 100% post consumer content. Pin It
Grier Summer (http://www.bestcamp.org/) needed a new brochure for the camp program. The brochure was designed as a quick overview of all the Grier Summer offerings. It has the ability to function as a stand-alone piece or as a carrier for a CD that describes the camp programs in greater detail. Helen, director of Grier Summer offered me the creative freedom to create this lovely die-cut piece. Thanks Helen.Pin It
