What I Designed Today: Tri-Fold Brochure

Tri-fold brochures are the bread and butter of marketing, aside from business cards. They give you a chance to show and tell what your business is about. Designs that flow well are few and far between but I like how this one turned out. The only thing I would add or change now are calla lily leaves following the curved divider or at the top right hand corner of the circles. Can’t wait to see this one in print!

What I Designed Today: March Madness Poster, Invitation & RSVP Card for OK Mozart

It’s 5:25 a.m. I’ve been up since 4 a.m. exporting files I finished yesterday, noting to myself in astonishment that in my 20s, I would stay up until 3 or 4 a.m. working on projects and now that I’ve reached my 40s, I GET UP at 4 a.m. to finish projects. There is something wrong with that!

Anyway, this includes the final touches of the poster written about earlier, including one pricing change. The entire set of marketing collateral for this event for OK Mozart includes a poster, a two-sided invitation, and an RSVP card. It’s a great set! I’m not a HUGE fan of the basketball with leprechaun hat but he’s kinda cute and growing on me. I customized him out of other stock pieces and parts. One would think there would be more basketball leprechauns given March Madness’ basketball theme, no? Well, one would be wrong {insert heavy pompous sarcasm here}.

What I Designed Today: Christmas Cards for OK Mozart

I loved doing this last year (see below for last year’s version).  This year, another local design company has generously volunteered their time (okay, their interns’ time) to redesign the logo for next year so I changed the Christmas card design to match the lovely greens and sent them two options below.  I would have wrapped their logo on the ornament but these were initial proofs and they chose the dark green so I didn’t bother.  Which do you prefer?

Recent Design Work: Oktoberfest 2014 Poster for OK Mozart

Catching up on old design work (well, sorta, cause that could take decades and nobody really wants to see all that crap from my beginner years, anyway).  This was from October of 2014 so it’s fair game to post.

Recent Design Work: OK Mozart’s March Madness 2015

Finished up this week for next March. Yeah, I wrote that correctly.  I think it might be the very first time I’ve completed a project so long in advance.  I hope it’s a new trend…I could use more “cushion” time on projects!  I’m not liking their new logo but that wasn’t my design…yikes.  I’m all for change but the old one had so much more authority and classiness to the font selection than this one and I don’t like the ragged right.  Oh well!  Not my circus, not my monkeys is my motto for 2015!
