In 2017 I designed the book “These Trees” by Ruthie Rosauer from cover to cover.
In it are 176 pages of original photography by Ruth, which she paired with the prose and
poetry of twenty authors. I designed her website in conjunction with the book.

The site featured a retail section for Ruth’s book and gift items as well as
her blog and ways for other tree lovers to interact.

This was a major wedding promotion that combined a full bridal catalog and this

SPRING Concept Easel_Banners-1.jpg
 

This project for Helzberg Diamonds shows how my concept was developed to
integrate the digital and traditional retail scope. Every page of the 50-page catalog featured
a call-to-action on social media, particularly Instagram and Facebook.

The design and art direction were geared to offer customers an interactive experience
and encouraged sharing their jewelry-inspired moments.

The springtime catalog covered all jewelry selections and highlighted Mother’s Day
and various bridal categories. This Zac Posen collection was regularly featured
and an important part of my art direction responsiblities.
