Focus Your Portfolio

Your portfolio should be a well considered strategic positioning of your work. As Larry Volk (my co-author) puts it, “Creating a sequence for a portfolio of your works, even if they are varied by type of design or media, can contribute to a stronger, cohesive presentation. Just as with a sequence of photographs, the relationships within a page spread, as well as the pace and flow of your sequence, are not somet

Josh Anderson Postcard Promo With Style

This postcard promo for Nashville editorial photographer Josh Anderson really shines. Literally and figuratively. A gold foil stamp on one card shines in the light and is a nice special touch. But the thing that I most admired about this promo is the integration of typography and image into a unique, contemporary and stylish design. It’s a design aesthetic that not only looks great but also speaks to the “

NPS Promo

Thought I would share a “leave behind” promo that I designed for speaking engagements and conferences that Larry and I participate in. It started out as a simple postcard and evolved from there into a double-sided fold out piece. The concept plays with the NO (and opposite) YES established in our “No Plastic Sleeves” brand. I print and score myself to save on cost. As a mailer I use a clear tr
