40 FOR 40

My friend Mike had an idea for his wife’s 40th birthday: He promised to do 40 things with her throughout the year, from dinner at her favorite restaurant to a trip on the Victoria Clipper.

He asked for my design help. Once he saw what I came up with, he decided to have the cards professionally printed on heavy stock so she could “cash in” each promise. It’s neat to think something I made helped brighten their lives for a whole year.

How you advance a brand

  • Internalize the organization’s core mission;
  • Identify and empathize with the target audience to understand their motivations;
  • Communicate directly to the target audience, make it simple and do it with impact.

Paul is a creative, daring and immensely talented graphics professional. His work always stood out, even among that produced by his peers in a very strong department. It was obvious that he was evolving far beyond the newspaper mindset, determined to make his mark across the spectrum of visual communications. I learned much working with Paul and would recommend him without hesitation.
