While teaching at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, I was commissioned to design several promotional items for the school. The most significant being the catalog. Original abstract studio photography was created, as well as other photography used to covey the various majors. Due to a limited budget and black and white printing, the design focused on high contrast, and simple but elegant typography.
Application form for the school. Even forms can be designed with care for details and usability.
Commissioned to design an invite for a guest Polish visiting artist, I asked the artist to just “draw something.” He then quickly sketched a simple expression of his moving from Poland to the US. It was perfect. So that was used in the invite, with the simple addition of red to emphasize the Polish flag.
Post card invitation for an exhibit of the work of the design offfice Skolos Wedell + Raynor. This firm uses dynamic studio photography as a primary element of their solutions. The circle is a camera lens.
A scholarship fund dinner event invitation. This was located in the historic Third Ward area of Milwaukee, and the collage images reflected the vintage aspects of the area, and the people that used to populate that area.
