Writing on the Wall

Here's another t-shirt design for a Christian printer in the UK. I took some liberties with this story from the book of Daniel. (:

Target Field Ads

When you're visiting the new Minnesota Twins stadium, Target Field... be sure to flip over your program. I created the illustrations for a series of back cover ads (two are shown here) designed by InHouse art director, Jason Miller. I need to also mention that the in-house department at Target has really been creating some wonderful work since their inception. Much of it was noticed recently by AIGA Design Show judges and won cubes.

Blackwood Portfolio

A while back, I showed you the brochure I designed for Blackwood Management Group... and their crazy expensive business card. Well, they finally got their portfolios finished and this is where all of the pieces come together.

LogoLounge 6

The winning logo designers for the new LogoLounge 6 book have been notified and I'm glad to say that 25 of my logos have been selected. Click on the image below to get a better look.

I was also a judge for the book along with Bart Crosby of Crosby Associates, Hans Hulsbosch of Hulsbosch, Jeannie Servaas of Saffron Brand Consultants Inc., Jessica Hische of Jessica Hische, Marius Ursache of Grapefruit, Silvio Giorgi of Latinbrand, and Tessa Westermeyer of Landor.

Judging wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. Since 34,000 logos were entered for consideration, it was a marathon process. I found it difficult to keep my criteria for judging consistent throughout the whole process. At each session, I would start out giving positive grades liberally. As the hours dragged on, I became more and more cynical. The inconsistency made me go back several times to correct previous grades which prolonged the process even more. Even so, I was honored to be selected as a judge and feel I did my best at grading a very impressive body of work.

Fellow Awards & 2010 MN AIGA Show

Prior to the big MN AIGA Design Show, dozens of people gathered to watch MN AIGA give out 3 more Fellow awards. Joe Duffy, Sue Crolick and Eric Madson now join the previous award winners, Tim Larsen and Peter Seitz... both in attendance. I tried to capture some of the attendees in photos.
