Eastern Connecticut State University went through a growth period and with it came new wayfinding signs around the campus to help pedestrians navigate the campus. I used the sign as the template for navigation on the website, creating a consistent image of navigation, be it physical or virtual. I still maintain these pages even though marketing oversight has changed the look considerably: http://www.easternct.edu/its/
Tea and Herb Essence needed an updated look to their online presence. It needed to serve as an online catalog, and virtual extension of their physical store front. But beyond the products, the site had to reflect the style and philosophy of the owners and their clients. It was important to communicate that they are not selling products, their selling a lifestyle.
After four genererations of growth in the US, this family needed a site to keep up with each other as they spread out over the country. It serves as a place to post photos, message board, and a means of planning family vacations. http://a-full-house.com
Sara's Superb Herbs was conceived by a nursery wholesaler who applied the Betty Crocker strategy to nursery products. As with Betty, Sara did not exist, but the public had to believe she did. The site needed to serve as marketing tool for the products but also a means of communication between the fictional Sara and her customers.http://superbherbs.net
New England Grows! is the largest nursery trade show in the east. As an annual event, the website underwent a complete redesign every year. Eventually, this design was implemented where the colors could change according to the poster art that was created every year and yet the overall design and function would remain the same.
I suppose it could have just as easily been a friend and family agreement rather than a spousal agreement. I'll have to consider changing it. So, I made this as sort of a gag, after shattering my wrist doing stunts, but I did sign one and give it to my wife. Astute observers us will note the significance of the art on the snowboard.
The Center for Instructional Technology at Eastern CT State University was designed to be a visible team within IT and needed a logo to define itself and it’s projects.
But before it died, I worked as a technical editor, graphic artist, and staff photographer for Circuit Cellar Ink. There I took photos like what you see here, created graphics for print, designed ads, and created layout for pages. These are just a few examples. It's really hard to make circuitboards and managing editors look interesting.
