Best of Toledo Award
The biggest issue of the year is always the Best of Toledo contest the readers vote on, and winners and runners-up are selected. Every year, they make a plaque, and frame them for the award ceremony.
I made the plaque for the 2015 for all 260 winner and runners up. It was made in using Illustrator for art, and InDesign for all the pages and recipients.
Great Scot Mom
This was a mockup ad that gets created a lot of a business meeting with potential customers. They want to see how their ad will look in the paper, and possibly what kind of ideas the paper has to incorporate the community with promotions.
This was made in Illustrator, using CMYK for print.
Web Promo 2015.05-06
These were two web promo pieces I created for Mature Living. They ran online, and were also resized and used for the magazine issue.
I used Illustrator, using both a version in CMYK and an RGB version.
Toledo City Ad Bug
The senior designer had me create this for use in the Toledo City Paper's ad section when either they didn't have a customer to fill the ad, or the ad was donated or ran free in the edition.
It was made in Illustrator, but was designed to be very small.
Fanatic U Banner & Facebook
This was designed purely for digital use. Designed using Photoshop, the Back to School ad was for the content scroller on their website, and also for an image posted to Facebook.
This was a Photoshop piece, made in RGB.
Farm Bureau Credit Union
My current employer does in-house and external design jobs. I've been working with the credit union to keep their mobile app updated.
I design all of these in four different sizes for tablets (vertical & horizontal) and phones (vertical & horizontal).
Farm Bureau Young Farmers
Being the only one in the cube who likes (and can work in) Photoshop, this conference agenda booklet was a team effort.
I made the corn jacket image.
A lot of the early work I received was from friends in bands who wanted promotional posters made.
These are examples of postcards, magazine ads, and brochures.
Freelance & Work
These were created while freelancing or for work projects over the last few years.
These were album covers created for bands that I am friends with
(or was in at the time).
Branding & Communications
These are logos and corporate touchpoints created for freelance clients.
Various Other Projects
This is basically an everything else folder ranging from wedding invites to white space animals.
These are some of the websites / emails I've designed and built or helped work on for freelance clients.
Two commercials made for Adams St. Publishing, which aired on WTOL 24, the CBS affiliate in Toledo, OH.
