"I haven't been very good about updating the 'work' section of this site lately (so much of what I've done in the recent past is app coding, which doesn't show off very well)" is what I wrote in 2013 as introduction to a post promoting the first postcard design I'd made to promote a local Halloween event.
Well, I've still got that job.
As you can see, zombies are taking a bit of a back seat to super heroes these days. As well they should.
It's Congressional election season, and I usually watch from the sidelines. (I prefer to claim conscientious objector status on our corrupt political system.) This year I have a horse in the race, so to speak, not so much because I support any particular candidate, but because I designed his yard sign.
I know, it's not exactly breaking new ground in campaign yard sign design. Richard is running as a Republican, and his biggest worry was that it "not be too blue." Sigh. Art and graphic design don't mix. (No pun intended.)
Anyway, if you see this sign cluttering the roadside landscape of your neighborhood this election season, you now know who to blame. Isn't that the core of American politics?
[UPDATE 2018: The political consultants that Richard hired replaced this sign with one even more generic... that has an all blue background. I'm not saying there's a connection, but he didn't win.]
I rarely mention my professional projects in this blog, so enjoy this ad that ran in the Coweta County Shopper this month:
I've been making ads for Full Circle for years. I designed their "Zombie Day" promotional material for the past two years, as well as other occasional sales and print ads. If you're shopping for Toys in Newnan, Georgia, you could do worse than supporting the people who support me.
I haven't been very good about updating the "work" section of this site lately (so much of what I've done in the recent past is app coding, which doesn't show off very well), but here's something that I just finished that I think turned out well.
For the record, yes, I enjoyed this project despite thinking that zombies are stupid and never having seen a single episode of The Walking Dead. Sweet, sweet irony.
A friend of mine opened a new toy store in "Historic Downtown" Newnan, GA. Of course, I was asked to design the logo for the Full Circle storefront.
I'm rather pleased with the way it turned out. Even if it wasn't my first choice for the design, it fit his needs and looks plenty dapper enough, if I do say so myself. (What's that you say about the London Underground roundel? You'll have to speak up, I can't hear you.)
And while the name "Full Circle" isn't quite as... um, powerful as the name used by a certain frame shop in nearby "Historic Downtown" Carrollton, GA, at least Full Circle doesn't have to put out any redundant banners to supplement it's signage. And no, I don't know why all the nearby downtown areas -- including Griffin, LaGrange, and Warm Springs -- are all "historic," it's just something I've learned to live with.
"Picture Framing" at a "frame shop"? I'm glad that they explained that, otherwise I might have embarrassed myself trying to purchase a false accusation. Will those silly Oans never learn?
