Design, like wine, needs time to mature. Even the perspective gained from a few hours of separation can make the difference between a functional and outstanding design. Excellent organization, too, is a critical component of great visual communication. By planning and conceptualizing in advance, we save valuable time and communicate our messages more effectively.
The Religion Newswriters Foundation hired me in 2015 to produce visuals, including a 40-page program (above) for its annual association conference. I also produced signage and navigation posters for the conference and its staff.
I provide both editorial and marketing/advertising design services for Religion News Service (RNS), an international wire service based in Washington, D.C., whose website receives more than one million hits each month.
For editorial projects, I work individually with reporters to visually render complex information or illustrate historical trends. For marketing and advertising projects, I work with the organization's CEO and marketing director to create engaging advertisements, banners, and other promotional materials.
