Design.

 

 

A few examples of the t-shirt designs I did for the 2020 Arnold Arboretum Lilac Sunday T-Shirt Design competition. The event occurs every year in May ad is a celebration of the historic Lilac bushes that have been growing in the Arboretum for 100's of years.

The design was meant to attract a wider demographic to the event and was meant to be fresh and modern. 

An example of my work for the town newspaper Ferndale Friends. As a resident and home owner in Ferndale since the year 2000, it is a joy to be one of their official graphic designers. The page layouts are done in Page Plus software which I had to self-learn. The content is provided to me and I come up with the typography, layout, arrangements and final page artwork for insertion in to the master document.
