Portfolio Updates – Long Overdue

I made a few updates to my design portfolio that were long overdue. Click through to see more about the work I did for each project.


Salvations – Event Identity and Collaterals

Salvations is a furniture design competition utilizing reclaimed, repurposed and recycled materials all to benefit New Orleans’ oldest local environmental non-profit, The Green Project. The Green Project keeps over 1.8 million pounds of usable materials from the waste stream and over 40,000 gallons of paint out of the ground water supply and wetlands. See full project.

YLC 25th Anniversary Logo and Role Model Gala Event Package

The Young Leadership Council has maintained its tradition of highlighting 25 members of the community each year since its inception in 1986. Role Models are selected each year by a committee comprised of past Role Model honorees and members of the YLC’s Board of Directors.

Honorees have distinguished themselves by: promoting a positive attitude and an unyielding desire to enhance the quality of life in our community; striving to unite our community in collaborative efforts for its future prosperity; serving as an exemplary role model to young talent in the community; taking an effective and vigorous leadership role in the community; and/or making significant contributions in their specific fields of endeavor. See full project.

YLC Logo and Gala Invitation Design

The YLC has maintained its tradition of highlighting 25 members of the community each year since its inception in 1986. I designed the invitation set for the Young Leadership Council 2010 Role Model Awards Gala and was thrilled when they asked me to design the items for the gala again this year! I also designed a 25th anniversary variation of the YLC logo which is used on the gala items. It will also be incorporated into their branding for the upcoming year as they celebrate!

Optidge Logo Design

Optidge Logo and Business Cards

Danny Gavin of Optidge Internet Marketing came to me with his vision of creating a new identity for his growing company. The logo was to embody the unique side of his company, while also looking professional and trustworthy. With his education and growing experience, Danny is confident in his ability to deliver positive results. However, with his relatively brief time in the industry, a professional logo was needed for the company to stand out in the ever growing internet marketing industry. Danny’s knowledge is in demand by businesses large and small and now his company has a strong logo to identify his services in memorable way.

Design Featured in PaperSpecs Gallery!

Rose Crescent is a New Orleans based software design company that provides world-class business-focused, goal-oriented systems with exceptional quality, stability and usability. The name of the company was inspired by Rose Crescent, a street in Cambridge, England and the city of New Orleans, which is also known as The Crescent City. The goal was to create an identity that is clean and simple as well as references the origin of the name and conveys the utility and reliability of the brand. The crescent petals scattered in an irregular way on the business card give a sense of the logo being a solution to a scattered problem.
