The posters in this gallery were designed to advertise some local Chicago area Heavy Metal and Hard Rock band's CD release shows, reoccurring performances of a local suburban based House DJ, to drive new business for a local Bar and Restaurant based in Geneva, IL and a rough idea for some new branding for this website.
These post cards and business cards are for local Saint Charles, IL and Geneva, IL based businesses. Each card was designed for a specific seasonal, special occasion or permanent advertising campaign.
Branding is one of the most important aspects of any business, large or small, retail or B2B. An effective brand strategy gives you a major edge in increasingly competitive markets. These are a few examples of some of the mock ups for branding campaigns that I created.
I was contracted by Office Max Corporate in 2011 and 2012 to work on the catalogs. During these projects I did page layout on several pages in the following a corporate branding style guide.
This gallery shows some samples of various large format projects I have created over the years. From 2007 - 2009 I worked for Image-Forward in Geneva,IL. We designed, produced and installed window display graphics for 900+ Walgreens and Take Care Health Clinics stores nationwide. From 2013 - 2015 I worked for Flagsource in Batavia,IL creating retractable banners, table throws and flags and even some banners for USA Olympic Archery.
Beyond doing print design I also have my own T-Shirt Shop. Obvious Designs was created though Threadless.com. You can get there by visiting ObviousWebiste.com. These are some samples of the shirts you can find on the website. They range in style from mens to womens.
When it comes to logo design I try to make sure customers notice you; that you get a logo that jumps off the page. I try to help create a brand that people recognize.
