These days it seems that everyone I know either has a puppy or a baby. That being said, usually the babies are more fun to prepare for. Here’s a project that I worked on for a baby shower BBQ. I created a logo, had t-shirts printed and an oversize Baby Pool betting chart to up the baby ante.
Team Boy vs Team Girl Ts
Very complicated, high stakes Time/Date/Price/Gender chart. (I didn’t win the money)
In 2010, the Marketing team established a program designed to communicate the 5 key points that all company employees should keep in mind in order to attain a 2 year sales goal. I created the logo and all collateral based on the acronym FOCUS. The actual monetary goal has been purposely blurred for confidentiality.
Final logo, logo thumbnails.
Once the logo was decided, I expanded it into screen printed Tshirts, posters, banners, pens, travel mugs and various other forms of communication.
Below is a Blue Sky suggestion program rendering. It shows where the poster and suggestion box would be placed in the office. Also, The logo was broken down to a very simple form in for embroidery.
Poster for yearly Food Bank Donation with revised layout for Power Point presentation. It made people cry. (not in a bad way, in a “she looks so hungry, I want to donate” way)
“Sell it Daim-oh! Sell it like it’s your job!” Maybe not the most elegant thing I’ve ever said, but possibly one of the most eloquent. I was teasing a Sells Rep colleague when this came out unexpectedly, everyone liked it so well that a logo was requested. One of the most fun projects that I’ve done and it still makes me laugh. Looking up reference images of slimy door to door salesmen was a highlight.
4’x8′ boards designed to hold 81/2″x11″ literature holders. The goal was to appeal to workers in each location and attract their attention to the metrics presented. Challenges involved were: how to organize shifts and the number of machines while fitting everything in, another was figuring out what height was appropriate for the information to be easily read, and using large high res images on a G4 Mac that was 5 years old… it sounded like a helicopter was taking off when I’d use it.
