Here’s a historical brochure for the Women’s Environment & Development Organization, an international women’s advocacy network that promotes and protects human rights, gender equality and the integrity of the environment. In marking its twentieth anniversary I was approached by WEDO to design a brochure that celebrates the transformations, challenges and victories of their organization. In this 20-page brochure, the readers are taken through WEDO’s history beginning in 1990. The pages are designed to be inspiring and non exhaustive. The timeline keeps readers engaged with images throughout and motivational quotes of varying size.
WCS’s latest brochure series was developed to highlight the organization’s history, mission and some of their corporate relationships that have helped reach conservation goals worldwide.
A folder and 24-page brochure was designed for the Center for Community Alternatives (CCA). They are leaders in the field of community-based alternatives to incarceration. The brochure serves to highlight CCA’s mission and the areas they service.

The recently completed 2010 Annual Report for the Wildlife Conservation Society, resulted in 108 pages of new content, focusing on “connectivity” in wildlife conservation, accompanied with breathtaking wildlife images. In this latest report, a new color palette was introduced, along with a redesigned front of book, chapter opening headers, and Q&A spreads.
For the second year in a row, I was asked to work on Union Settlement Association’s Annual Report. The basic organization of the interior pages are similar to last year’s, but with updates to accommodate for additional text and data. A new cover design and palette were introduced to tie back to a smaller agency brochure, I designed earlier in the year. This year, a two-page timeline, illustrating activities that take place on a typical day at the Union Settlement Association, was also added.
One global legal firm’s property group was looking for a high-impact brochure to highlight their range of experience in transactions of iconic structures, complex financings, and large developments in the real estate sector. Cost was a factor, as well as a brochure that can be easily distributed at events or boardroom meetings. The result was a pocket size, accordion fold brochure with fonts and colors that were selected from the firm’s existing style guide. To highlight each of the areas of expertise, buildings were formed from the descriptions that resulted in a cityscape when looked at from a distance.
The Wildlife Conservation Society was in need of an annual report for 2009. They were looking to update the look while still conforming to existing collateral. With a greater amount of copy and images than previous years, the report needed to be organized in order for readers to navigate the 100-plus page brochure. The resulting color palette came from wildlife imagery and was used to define each chapter. Two page Q&A sections were also introduced throughout.
The Union Settlement Association, is a non-profit whose dedication to the community of East Harlem has been helping 13,000 individuals each year. I was asked to design this year’s annual report which illustrates the agency’s programs for individuals and families through a collection of case studies in Youth, Adult Education, Early Childcare, Senior Services, Mental Health, HIV Care Network, Home Care and Credit Union.
Panthera, a non-profit whose mission is to conserve the world’s 36 species of wild cats and its habitats, was looking to create an 8-page brochure specific to their Jaguar Corridor Initiative. The brochure needed to appeal to current and potential donors through visuals and supporting text of Panthera’s vision for problems facing the Jaguar Corridor, the initiative’s current footprint in 18 countries, and the expertise of those involved with the organization.
I recently designed a business card for Minneapolis based, animator and illustrator Anand Hurdkadli. Sometimes simple and clean is all you need. Take a look at some of his work or venture over to his Etsy shop where his video game inspired prints have been causing quite a stir. http://www.fortawesomestudios.com/
Welcome to the new home and website for my graphic design portfolio. The new format is influenced by my approach to design in print with emphasis on grids. I’ve integrated a blog where I will be posting announcements for upcoming events, recognition I’ve received and recently completed projects. The portfolio section showcases selected work and if you would like to find out a little about my career take a look in the about section. Designing and producing the new website has been a huge learning experience and with updates and improvements in the horizon. Your feedback is appreciated.
