Knoll Outdoor Sale

Knoll took a chance on an organic direction for their Outdoor Sale graphics (which I pretty much love). I painted several of their (highly covetable) all-weather pieces of furniture, and tangled them with vines and flowers.

The magazine ad and postcards, shown here, are topped off with hand-drawn typography, that was used elsewhere in the advetising campaign.
Along the way, I drew and redrew many versions of the leaf style and tested colors for the foliage and background. These are two of my favorite alternate versions.

Bogle Vs. Grant

The Wall Street Journal commissioned me to make this boxing poster-style illustration to illuminate the battle between two heavyweights in the world of finance.

Glamour Map

Glamour magazine gave me the plum assignment of illustrating a map showing the best and worst states for women in America. I used watercolor to create the map background and hand-wrote the text for each state in my own, not-quite-by-the-book calligraphic style. For the turnpage, I handwrote and painted these bits of headline text. Here is a detail of the map ...and another detail. It was such fun to make!

TakePart California Drought

The great TakePart.com asked me to create a series of infographics that tell the story of the current California drought. We decided on the form of a tourist postcard to tell the story in a way that makes the information easy and entertaining to read; it's an infographic masquerading as not-an-infographic. The statistical information is divided between four postcards each with a map of California, which get stacked one on top of the other as the user clicks through. The palette of brown, teal, yellow and cream ties the series together.

Reissued is a curated mobile marketplace for vintage and one-of-a-kind items, created by style and fashion impressario Jennifer Delonge. Together, we worked out the Reissued logo, tagline, app icon and this (detail) of the Reissued eblast, which keeps subscribers up to date on upcoming sales.
